Reception[edit]

Rock, Paper, Shotgun reviewer John Walker recommended the game saying that it was short but enjoyable.[2] GamesRadar's Lucas Sullivan also recommended the game: "With the ability to tackle levels at your own pace, and some masterfully-tuned difficulty, we can guarantee that you’ve never played a better goat-centric game."[3]

Sequel[edit]

A sequel to the game titled Escape Goat 2 was announced in January 2013 and released on March 24, 2014.[4] The game features a new art style, new puzzles, and new magical hats which grant the player character various powers.[4] Escape Goat 2 was published and promoted by Double Fine Productions' publishing label Double Fine Presents.
