The lights are on
Publisher Deep Silver announced today that it will be distributing Coffee Stain Studio’s Indie cult hit Goat Simulator as a physical product for PC in North America. The physical version of the debut game in the Goat Simulator genre will be available at participating retail stores for $9.99 by mid-July, and will include the new patch 1.1 content.
The new patch content, which is now live on current versions and is free-to-download with the game installed, features new playable goats, the ability to ride bikes and skateboards, a new map, and local four-player split screen multiplayer mode. The patch also includes the new game modes Capture the Flag, Racing Mode, and Ragdoll Hockey.
It’s rather difficult to describe Goat Simulator except to say that it is exactly what it says it is: players take control of a goat and navigate a small sandbox environment, coping with physics-based gameplay that is buggy and broken by-design. It’s a truly absurd game that really needs to be seen to be comprehended, so you can watch us give it a try in this test chamber.
Goat Simulator originally released on steam and available in that format for PC, iOS, and Linux. If you think you may want to live a day in the life of a goat, check out our review of the truly unique title.

I'dont think anyone really ever wanted a physical release.
Heh, I mean thats cool and all, but this one is fine just on digital. Hell got it on sale from Steam just yesterday.
Did they just really parody the first "Dead Island" trailer???!!! XD
Deep Silver? That's so... perfect. Saints Row V: The Goat Wars confirmed for 2015
I'm not sure what the point is. Everyone who wants this game can likely buy it digitally.
I just lost a lot of faith in Deep Silver
Well, there goes Coffee Stain Studios. Say your goodbyes while you can.
I don't care whether people think Deep Silver is a "great publisher", based on what I've seen over the years, it's my belief if ANY successful Indie Dev gets with a big name publisher, it's only a matter of time before they go down the toilet.
