For Twitch streamer Dylan "Rudeism" Beck simply playing a menacing goose in Untitled Goose Game wasn't enough. He wanted to become the goose. In a livestream yesterday, Rudeism put on a homemade goose suit and played the game in a whole new way.
Wrapped in a sheet, Rudeism wore scuba flippers rigged to control movement, white gloves set to guide the goose's wings and a voice-activated beak that let him control the feathered character's honking. With that, and a thumb stick to indicate direction, Rudeism had full control over the game. Though, he did have to physically march in place, flap his wings and honk.
Voice-activated honking. Motion-controlled flaps. Moving by waddling your feeties. 🦢
THIS is how Untitled Goose Game is meant to be played.

In a tweet, Rudeism expressed his shock that any of it worked. After about an hour of playing -- during which time he had to move from squatting to sitting because it turns out being a goose is exhausting -- Rudeism's controller broke. In a tweet, he wrote that the "goosing got cut a bit short by a faulty wire" but that he'll be back to try again soon.
