Resident Evil 2 is masterwork of survival-horror, but it’s even scarier now thanks to a PC mod. The appropriately scary game now has a guest appearance from the mischievous goose who has become a meme star.
VG247 reports that the mod is the handiwork of ZombiAli, who replaced Mr. X with the feathered fiend from Untitled Goose Game. And of course, he’s wearing a tiny fedora to match Mr. X. The mod isn’t completed, but it can already be seen partially in action. The final product will have “extra honks,” but there’s no ETA for when the work will be finished.
Of course, the Goose is known more for mild annoyance and sowing chaos than any real threat of harm. But he’s definitely chaotic neutral in one way or another. Since the game’s release on PC and Nintendo Switch earlier this month, the character has become known for memes, fan crossovers, and celebrity mentions. It’s planned for release on other platforms.
“The important thing is that Untitled Goose Game is a hoot,” James O’Connor wrote in GameSpot’s review. “It’s a comedy game that focuses on making the act of playing it funny, rather than simply being a game that features jokes. Wishing that it was longer speaks to how much fun I had with it. There’s nothing else quite like Untitled Goose Game; it’s charming and cute despite being mean, and both very silly and very clever. It’s also probably the best non-racing game ever to feature a dedicated ‘honk’ button.”
