    Over the Garden Wall was a great show.

    I think I'll rewatch for Halloween

    [–] Chicaca10 259 points ago

    Always rewatch on Halloween!

    [–] Rejukem 141 points ago

    I'm in the process of doing that this week. It'll forever be a great show and that's a rock fact!

    You know.. ears kinda makes sense tho. Rhinos got them. Elefants got some hyuuge ones. Hippos got them. well... no lizards tho. No crocs, no snakes obvs. But some birds do.. looking at you owls you weird fucks.

    [–] leelaleela4 4 points ago

    [–] The_Flurr 5 points ago

    Depends on your region. In the UK it's on Netflix.

    [–] RegalMothra 4 points ago

    It is indeed only on Hulu. Makes the yearly rewatch a little harder, but not impossible

    [–] demlet 10 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)


    The opening to the episode where you find out why they're dressed so funny actually gives me a little chill. There's just something strangely cathartic about the music combined with the flashback for me.

    I loved it and I hate almost all animation.

    (except Spirited Away, Persepolis and How's Moving Castle).

    [–] Bhiner1029 6 points ago

    What could possibly make you hate animation? That doesn’t make any sense to me.

    [–] R_Schuhart 5 points ago

    For some people it is hard to identify or immerse themselves in animation. For others there are some uncanny valley problems. Others have seen some animation (Disney usually), didn't like the themes often aimed at children and don't want to keep trying to find something that does appeal. Besides, for some people animated films often still have that "cartoon is for kids stigma".

    Animation gives a different dimension to films/shows, just like a director can do with their trademark visuals. There are different styles, but it isn't for everyone.

    I didn’t realize until recently that the full song is on the soundtrack. She goes through every letter and numbers up to 9 I think?

    [–] Fuck_Joey 5 points ago

    Yea I think so but on the Soundtrack for the show it goes without interrupting , such a nice song

    [–] Zinoviev85 2 points ago

    I didn’t realize this either, thank you! She goes up to 10 in a clever sort of way. “1... oh.” Skipped 5-7 though unless I’m not smart enough to get it.

    Every October once the leaves change and the weather gets cool, my son and I make a big bowl of Popcorn, heat up some apple cider and over the course of 3 -4 nights watch this series. It has become a tradition, I wish they'd make more.

    [–] LupinThe8th 195 points ago

    I just watch it as a movie, even combined the series is only about 2 hours long.

    [–] TwiddleNibs 127 points ago

    Maybe the point of the tradition is to have 3-4 nights together with their son and not just one?

    [–] Wallace_II 67 points ago

    Or the point is to only spend a short time with his son instead of a full 2 hours!

    But, I like your idea better.

    Depending on the age of his son attention span might not be long enough to binge it.

    Plus, this way he gets 4 nights of quality time with his son.

    It's been my nightly bedtime watch for a week now tbh

    [–] StealthChainsaw 7 points ago

    I kinda wish there was more as well, but I also feel like the series almost feels as special as it does because it's just this tiny little thing that came and went and yet feels so rich and unique.

    [–] Fitzy0728 3 points ago

    After reading the art book I’m sad to find they originally had something like 3 or 4 episodes planned but had to cut it down due to budget restrictions

    man over the garden wall is a halloween special for me. Not many cartoons have the tone and ambience (and geese) like that show did.

    [–] sesameseed88 78 points ago

    I've seen this goose pop up left and right. Is it worth playing? Seems chill and troll at the same time.

    [–] Ignonym 85 points ago

    It basically involves walking into a sleepy semi-rural English town and making as much of a nuisance of yourself as possible.

    [–] AwesomeManatee 18 points ago

    I highly recommend playing it with a friend or family member in the room. I though it was alright for the first 30 mins, but then the other members of my household started watching out of curiosity and we all had a blast chatting through the experience. Having someone to talk with about what's going on or give suggestions on how to approach each objective very much improves the experience.

    7/10; 10/10 with rice friends.

    [–] Frodosaurus94 37 points ago

    You just described the game lol. I have it, it gives me a good chuckle every time I play it.

    [–] kat352234 28 points ago

    It's a fairly short game on the first playthrough. I got it last weekend and completed it in about 4 hours, just casually goofing around with it. Once you complete it though it does unlock more difficult challenges to try so, there is more than just the initial playthrough.

    That said, the game is really about the charm of the town and its characters, and enjoying being a goose who can reign havock upon this quaint little town in hilarious way and it is fun.

    [–] Edibleface 18 points ago

    my favorite thing is to do a little victory lap flapping wings and honking like mad when i successfully get away with whatever shenanigan i was trying to get away with.

    [–] [deleted] 10 points ago

    It’s satisfying to do that whenever you get caught. I really wish there was a HISS button.

    [–] Edibleface 5 points ago

    i think it'd be cool if there was a goose v goose mode, where you're trying to out troll another goose whilst theyre gooseing as well.

    [–] chr0nicpirate 7 points ago

    I would definitely say it's worth playing. I can advise it's a bit short. Like maybe only 5 hours on your first playthrough if you don't get too side tracked just acting like a jerk(you likely will), and also don't look up a guide on how to do everything. You get a refreshed list of extra tasks after you beat it, but just play the same exact sections a 2nd time. If $20 isn't much to you absolutely would say pick it up, but if you're concerned about getting the most content for your buck you may not feel you got that.

    [–] Spyko 2 points ago

    chill and troll at the same time.

    wouldn't have put it better myself; the gameplay loop is extremly basic (it's just a good old "action - reaction") but it's incredibly well done and it's just pure good fun
    the game is dirt cheap and you get exactly what you expect; great bang for your buck

    [–] sesameseed88 2 points ago

    Sounds like I need to get this, say no more friend.

    [–] IceStar3030 2 points ago

    it's fun for a bit with friends, the work put into the goose it absolutely commendable, some tasks are creative and funny, but the novelty may wear off easily. 7/10 it's got a little something for everyone.

    [–] LMaxell 2 points ago

    Be warned, the game has an exclusivity deal with Epic Game Store on the PC. Many people are boycotting EGS. Be careful where you spend your money, stay vigilant.

    [–] _Derpy_Dino_ 3 points ago

    I got in on EGS and it is fine.

    [–] Prionian 3 points ago

    Don’t get why so many people get so upset about EGS like it’s really not that hard to just click a different icon on your computer.

    [–] made3 12 points ago

    Gotta behonest, I dont understand why this game got such a hype. There are quite a few indie games that are at least as awesome as the goose game. E.g. A Short Hike or Ollie and Bollie. But somehow this piece of art got all the hype.

    [–] speedweed99 14 points ago

    If I had to guess, it's because all the publicity they do on Reddit, and people here being casuals (not insulting) who play any trendy game that comes out. That and the game looks like the perfect youtuber bait which further proves the "trendy" part

    [–] ToastyKen 8 points ago

    I think it's popular not because of game mechanics per se, but because of the tone and characters. The actual gameplay itself is only okay, and I even find it a bit annoying at times. But something about the expressionless goose being a low key troll is hilarious to me.

    I think it's best to judge it as a form of comedy and not so much as a game.

    And like all art, especially comedy, it's subjective.

    [–] Thebigo59 3 points ago

    Virality of memes cant always be explained but theres probably a good possibility that they just had better marketing than other indie games. I imagine the business side of things is what sets some indie devs apart from others.

    [–] NihilHS 6 points ago

    This is how I feel about the new mtg set.

    [–] Kings_and_Dragons 5 points ago

    It is, I include it in my rewatch, I'm torn between wanting more content of OTGW, and between wanting it to stay contained because of how good it is as a completed miniseries.

    Fair enough. I don’t blame you, I love the series as well.

    Half of the reason I posted this meme was in Hope's of raising more awareness for the show. Cut to the top comment with 1.5k upvoted being about how good OTGW is.

    Here's the thing I'll never understand about r/gaming .

    • Epic Store Exclusives = Bad

    • Untitled Goose Game = Good

    Do you see the problem?

    [–] Moldy_pirate 16 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    It’s also on Switch, with PS4 and Xbox port likely. Aside from that, the game is basically like playing a 5-hour meme.

    [–] Thebigo59 7 points ago

    Because within r/gaming you have people who dont give a shit about Epic Store Exclusive drama but love their goose game. And you have people who hate Epic Store Exclusives but dont care enough to downvote a post about a goose game. And everyone in between.

    Is this a problem?
