Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you were a goat? If yes, then Goat Simulator is probably the closest you are going to get to that answer… sort of. Goat Simulator puts you in the hoofs of a goat as you explore possibly one of the most buggy open worlds ever. What’s even more crazy is that the game is completely designed that way, so you will be able to blow up gas stations with your tongue, fly around in jet packs, benefit from the completely outrageous physics system and even challenge oncoming traffic to a fight. It sounds mental but it is crazy fun!
I Am Bread
If being a goat isn’t your thing then being a slice of bread must be! In I Am Bread players take control of a slice of bread as it has to make it’s way to the toaster in order to live it’s dream as a lovely piece of toast. Players have to navigate from one side of the kitchen to the other dodging various obstacles and trying not to land on the floor. It is a pretty addictive and challenging game that will have you wishing that you were a slice of buttery toast for hours.
Super Kitty Boing Boing
A local multiplayer game for up to four players. Super Kitty Boing Boing has players controlling spring loaded cats across thee various game modes such as death match, coin collection and a game mode where you have to fight over a slice of toast. If you like cats, 16 bit style graphics and your love of toast goes further than I am Bread then this is the game for you.
Golf With Your Friends
Because golf without your friends is pretty boring, Golf With Your Friends has up to 12 players playing crazy golf. Currently in early access , this is a relatively straight forward golf game that is surprisingly addictive. You will play across six levels which increase in difficulty in some crazy locations. So if you and 11 other mates fancy some virtual golf then this game should be right up your street/putting green.

Kerbal Space Program
Do you think you have what it takes in order to build the best space craft? How about a space craft that is able to fly into space without killing any crew members?

You have to think and work out which part does what in order to make your space craft fly. Its a great concept that will have you creating some weird and wonderful flying machines.
Surgeon Simulator isn’t the most accurate game when it actually comes to accurately simulating surgery. In this game you will be given the tools available to you in order to perform surgery. It is then up to you what to do next. Perform the surgery? Start waving a scalpel wildly in the air until something happens? Remove the patience’ organs and replace them with house hold items? The choice is yours.
