We hope y’all had a lovely Valventine’s Day yesterday. It wasn’t steamy enough, you say? 
Aight, we got you covered. Goat Simulator 3 is finally out on Steam! About damn time right.

And if you’ve grown tired of your relationship after yesterday's lack of effort, why not end it for good with any of the seven mini-games we’ve in the game? We guarantee it will work*!

Play Goat Simulator 3 on Steam today

* We can’t guarantee that
