Description

BillyGoat Entertainment Ltd is a video game developer based in sunny Belfast, Northern Ireland. Established in 2010 ‘The Goat’ specialises in crafting jovial, lighthearted, comedic experiences, currently developing for consoles and PC.

History

Early history

Founded in the year 2010 The Goat began life as a 3D animation studio, producing a variety of animated TV adverts broadcast in Ireland. In 2011, with support from friends at Northern Ireland Screen, The Goat focused its attention on video game development.

The future

Within a relatively short space of time The Goat has gone from one person into a compact yet exceptionally motivated collection of individuals, all working toward the common goal of ensuring that The Goat becomes a world-renowned video game studio (that and, naturally, producing some totes amazeballs games along the way, while never losing that connection with the yoof of today, innit).

Latest Project

The Goat’s latest game, Her Majesty’s SPIFFING, is an intergalactic adventure set in which the Queen of England has decided to establish a Galactic British Empire. Drawing inspiration from games such as Lucas Art’s The Secret of Monkey Island and comic troop Monty Python, HMS is the satirical journey of Captain Frank Lee English in his quest to appropriate the stars for Her Majesty.
