Desktop Goose unleashes mayhem on computer screens
The goose “tracks mud everywhere” steals the mouse, brings gift and brings messages as well.
Back in September 2019, House House developed a game called Untitled Goose, where the player is a goose who is let loose on an unsuspecting village. A new app called Desktop Goose, which is almost a tribute to the original game, might allow users to experience the terror of the bird without actually playing it.
Not actually affiliated to the game or the developers, the app has been developed by Samperson and sees the namesake bird waddle through the computer ruining your desktop.
It honks, steals and even drags distracting messages into the computer screen, revealed a report in Geek.com.

Samperson took to Twitter to share a short clip of the goose, alongside the caption, "I made a goose that destroys your computer."
In the video, the creator first explains that he made a goose for the desktop before saying that it "tracks mud everywhere" steals the mouse, brings gift and brings messages as well.

According to a report in Wired, it took game developer Chiet a couple of days to create Desktop Goose. It got downloaded over 500 times on Itch.Io within one-and-half hour of its release.
