'Goat Simulator' (ALL) Studio Recruits Mojang/Minecraft Exec

by Rainier on July 27, 2017 @ 8:04 a.m. PDT

You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true! Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat.

Players will be able to live the dream and cause as much destruction as an actual goat from the comfort of their couch. Live life as a goat and wreck the world around you; add some creativity to your destruction and you’ll rack up even more points! Goat Simulator’s charm comes in part from the bugs that were deliberately left in.

Soon you’ll be able to pick up a controller and take on the world as a goat, racking up points as you destroy the world around you, using your insanely long tongue to drag people and objects to their demise.

Coffee Stain Publishing announced that Daniel Kaplan, the award-winning production director, producer, business developer of Minecraft fame, has joined its ranks to work on new projects. A ten year veteran of game development, Kaplan has won numerous BAFTAs, GDC Awards, IGF awards for his work on Minecraft, and is now working on new games with Coffee Stain Publishing with details to be announced in the future. Kaplan joins the creators of iconic grand simulator franchise Goat Simulator, FPS Tower Defense Sanctum, and will help to drive Coffee Stains’ continuing growth and awesomeness as a publisher.

“With our ambitious plans for Coffee Stain Publishing, we had to find the right people, and that’s not always easy. I’ve known Kaplan for 10 years (we even shared a bed once at Gamescom!), and I’m excited to have him join us! Kaplan is great, and shares our core game philosophies; we can’t wait to have him apply his magic on our products” said Anton Westbergh, CEO of Coffee Stain Studios and Publishing.

“I’ve been a fan of Coffee Stain’s games for years now, and moving to the team behind one of the weirdest titles in the world is an exciting moment for me,” said Kaplan, Business Developer at Coffee Stain Publishing. “I’ve been drawn to making and thinking about games for as long as I can remember, and I’m really looking forward to work with a lot of different games at Coffee Stain. I’m very excited!”

Coffee Stain Publishing and Kaplan will be at Gamescom in Cologne this August, showing off dwarven co-op space mining in Deep Rock Galactic. If you would like to join a session together with the devs, please get in touch.

Kaplan is best known as the first employee of Mojang and business developer, producer, production director, friend of Minecraft, though his work also includes working at Ludosity, an indie gaming studio. He will continue his work of making awesome games together with the Coffee Stain Publishing team, which consist of awesome folks from King, Massive and Coffee Stain.
