Children, Clothes, and Fail: gaming: Indie Game Spotlight: Untitled Goose Game聽 Oh, boy, do we have an extra super horrible Indie Game Spotlight exclusive for you today! We鈥檙e talking, of course, of Untitled Goose Game, a slapstick simulator, where you play a goose hassling a town full of people who would very much like you to stop hassling them, please. It feels a bit like playing the videogame version of an old cartoon, complete with reactive soundtrack. Everything that happens in the game is very low stakes (the goose doesn鈥檛 get involved in political scandals, or drive a car off a ramp etc.), but there鈥檚 a lot of room for comedic performance in doing things like stealing clothes off a washing line and dumping them in a pond. The team at House House shares roles a lot, and so the game was predominantly designed collaboratively by four people. We chatted with Stuart Gillespie-Cook, who mostly works on animation. Also within House House is Jake Strasser, largely responsible for the design of levels and environments, Nico Disseldorp who does all the programming, and Michael McMaster who mostly works on art direction and UI. The iconic sound effects were made by Em Halberstadt, and Dan Golding聽designed聽the music. There鈥檚 also art from Kalonica Quigley and additional UI programming from Cherie Davidson. Stuart Gave us the lowdown on the curious title, the game mechanics, and dream crossovers. Read on! What鈥檚 the story behind the title of the game? This more or less happened by accident; at first, we just needed something to put on a video we were submitting to a festival. It鈥檚 become one of the best things about the game, and I鈥檓 so glad we stuck with it. I will say it鈥檚 a weird thing to explain when your very not-online hairdresser asks you 鈥渙h, what game are you working on?鈥澛 How did the team come up with the animation style? The whole visual style of the game is designed to be nice and clean, very readable and approachable. The animation specifically takes a lot of inspiration from slapstick and pantomime鈥攚ith big, over the top reactions that are impossible to miss. We wanted to squeeze as much emotion as possible out of these people without facial expressions, so everything has to be evoked with body language. We also lean heavily on two dimensional, hand-drawn effects that are lifted from comics鈥攍ines to represent the direction of a honk, stars when someone hits their thumb with a hammer, etc. Untitled Goose Game offers a unique take on the puzzle genre. What other mechanics can we expect? Because it鈥檚 a game that鈥檚 largely about interacting with a bunch of people, the game borrows heavily from AI systems in stealth games. Playing with a character鈥檚 awareness of where the goose is, where they left their stuff, where that sound came from etc. is a big part of the comedy of the game. So, while it鈥檚 less restrictive than most stealth games, and there鈥檚 no real fail state (ie. if a character sees a goose, they鈥檒l think 鈥渁h, there鈥檚 a goose鈥 rather than 鈥淚鈥檇 better shoot and kill that spy鈥), those explicit behaviours that are so present in the stealth genre are really important in our goose game. If you could have the goose cross over into any cinematic or game universe, what would it be and why? It would be nice to see the goose chase Postman Pat over a hedgerow. That era of British children鈥檚 television has been a huge influence on the game. Otherwise, we鈥檙e always open to having the goose in Smash.

In 2018, he was paid at least $568 million, which was, in fact, a drop from the $786 million he made the year before. He has been generous toward McConnell and [t]rump with that wealth. In 2016, he gave聽$2.5聽million聽to the Senate Leadership Fund, McConnell鈥檚 Super PAC and put Jim Breyer, McConnell鈥檚 billionaire brother-in-law, on the board of Blackstone. Two years later, Schwarzman kicked in $8 million to McConnell鈥檚 Super PAC.聽 鈥淏lackstone employees have given well聽over $10 million to McConnell and his Super PAC over the years, making them the biggest source of direct financing over McConnell鈥檚聽career.

鈥淭he companies have wrested control of land, deforested it, and helped build a controversial highway to their new terminal in the one-time jungle, all to facilitate the cultivation and export of grain and soybeans.鈥
鈥淪chwarzman, a founder of Blackstone, owns roughly a fifth of the company, making him one of the world鈥檚 richest men. In 2018, he was paid at least $568 million, which was, in fact, a drop from the $786 million he made the year before. He has been generous toward McConnell and [t]rump with that wealth. In 2016, he gave聽$2.5聽million聽to the Senate Leadership Fund, McConnell鈥檚 Super PAC and put Jim Breyer, McConnell鈥檚 billionaire brother-in-law, on the board of Blackstone. Two years later, Schwarzman kicked in $8 million to McConnell鈥檚 Super PAC.聽
鈥淏lackstone employees have given well聽over $10 million to McConnell and his Super PAC over the years, making them the biggest source of direct financing over McConnell鈥檚聽career. McConnell鈥檚 Senate campaign declined to comment.
鈥淪chwarzman聽is a close friend and adviser to [t]rump, and served as the chair of his Strategic and Policy Forum until it fell apart聽in the wake of the Charlottesville neo-Nazi rally, in聽which [t]rump famously praised聽'very fine people, on both sides.鈥  In December 2017, as the final details of the GOP tax cut were being ironed out, Schwarzman hosted a聽$100,000-a-plate fundraiser for [t]rump. Some of [trump鈥檚] dinner companions complained about the tax bill, and days later, [t]rump slashed the top percentage rate in the final package from 39.6 to 37.聽
鈥"Bolsonaro has plans to pave significantly more roads聽in the Amazon that have otherwise been impassable much of the year, a project made feasible by international financing.
鈥"Of course, Hidrovias is also involved in paving B.R.-163 and other development projects in the region. Those projects, such as the paving of the highway, have additional indirect 鈥 though entirely predictable 鈥 consequences, as they spur side roads that make previously difficult-to-reach areas of the Amazon accessible for mining, logging, or further deforestation.
鈥"A Blackstone spokesperson noted that the fund only owns 9.3 percent* of Hidrovias. But that ignores the 55.8 percent of Hidrovias that is owned by聽P谩tria Investimentos. On聽Hidrovias鈥檚 website,聽P谩tria is described as a company 鈥榠n partnership with Blackstone,鈥 and it is known in the聽financial聽industry to be a Blackstone company.鈥
*Pay no attention to claimed percentages of ownership.  What goes on behind ownership curtains is fluidly incestuous.  For example, from April 2019:
Blackstone Transfers 35% Stake in Brazil鈥檚 Alphaville Urbanismo to P谩tria (em portugu锚s)
鈥淏lackstone transferred its 35% stake in Brazilian real estate developer Alphaville Urbanismo to its partner P谩tria Investimentos. Blackstone and P谩tria originally invested R$1.4b in June 2013 for a 70% stake in the company. The two firms formed a partnership in 2010 and Blackstone retains a 40% stake in P谩tria.鈥

Keep in mind, 
It鈥檚 not like this graft flows directly, or just one way.
Trump USDA is paying millions to a shady Brazilian meatpacking company under DOJ, SEC investigation
Brazil Subsidiary Hoovers Up $62 Million In Trump Trade War Aid Intended For Farmers

Every American farmer who has lost their Chinese market for soybeans 鈥 all of them 鈥 should be wondering how it was that trump 鈥渨oke up鈥 one morning with his idea of a trade war with China.  Had his close friend Schwartzman told trump the Brazilian road and terminal were ready?
There is no question that the Amazon rainforest is burning right now to open new farm land in order to meet China鈥檚 soybean market.


I wanted Blackstone to get fucked prior to this, now鈥ow I want them to 
SUFFER.
