3. It Was Created as a Joke and is Purposefully Glitchy
Goat Simulator was created as a joke as is therefore purposefully glitchy. Coffee Stain Studios says on their site:
Goat simulator was made as a small game jam game and that’s how we want to keep it. We will polish the game up (but keep the funny bugs of course!), but we want to keep the core gameplay small and silly. Hopefully the game can make you laugh for an hour or something. We are, however, working on Steam Workshop support so people can edit in their own levels in the game!
You can watch some of the game play above. Yes that’s a goat wearing a jet pack.
