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.

Story

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.

More Recently

In 2016 The Goat released its first console title, a satirical intergalactic adventure game called Her Majesty’s SPIFFING, tasking players with establishing a new, 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 and was the proud recipient of TIGA’s 2017 Creativity and Heritage Award.

Latest Project

More recently the Goat’s compact, yet exceptionally talented and attractive team of six, have been working on Supermarket Shriek, a light-hearted shopping (kart) racer heading to consoles in Q1 2019.
