Donations and Funding

GoatPunks has been a self funded project from the beginning. As I get closer to the finish line I would like to open up the project for donations and suggestions that will help improve GoatPunks.


"This video game features tiny, fire-throwing goats. What more do you want?"

"Local multiplayer gaming is back and more fun than ever with Goat Punks."

"Because if you're going to play "king of the hill," why not mountain goats?"

About GoatPunks

GoatPunks is a rip-roaring multiplayer game of goats, mountains, good ole head-butting action with lightning and fire to rain down on your friends below. Can you hoof it to the top and stay there?

GoatPunks is a multiplayer action game pitting your goat against other players in a battle to become king of the mountain. Fight through an onslaught of bombs, obstacles and each other to climb to the top of 9 uniquely themed mountains each offering distinct challenges. Once up there, stay on top of the competition for 30 hectic seconds to claim victory.

GoatPunks supports up to 4 players in head-to-headbutt, split-screen, action. Grab your controllers or keyboard and get ready to roll. Shields, weapons, and power-ups are scattered about the mountain, and if you manage to get your goat to make it up the top, all the other goats will have a common enemy: you!

Stages vary in complexity providing a range of challenge and the levels are hand illustrated in an anime-like style inspired by Studio Ghibli movies. You’ll race up exotic backdrops including ice, city, candy and lantern mountains. Although the objective is simple, each round is a new adventure where anything can happen!
