How a goat game unexpectedly became Sweden’s biggest hit in 2015
Goat Simulator, a game developed by Coffee stain studios, has been a huge hit since its release in 2014.
During the past holiday season, downloads of the goat game increased by more than 500 percent. Goat Simulator was first released in April of 2014.
“It will be really exciting to see what will happen next. If you look at it in terms of revenues, 2015 was a better year than 2014,” says Anton Westbergh, CEO and co-founder of Coffee stain studios.
The turnover for the Skövde based company is expected to exceed SEK 100 million for 2015, according to Dagens industri. That is increase of more than 10 percent compared to the previous year.
The unexpected success has made the company decide to invest more resources in developing the game.
“Considering that Goat Simulator still sells as much as it does, we will continue to maintain and work with the game during all of 2016,” says Westbergh.Coffee stain studiosAnton WestberghGoat Simulator
