HONK HONK, HEAR YE. I have created a goose for your desktop.

He'll nab your mouse, track mud on your screen...  leave you a message, deliver you memes?

Play video games with a desktop buddy who will attack you if you poke him.

Fill out spreadsheets while your screen fills up with instances of Goose Notepad.

Supports MacOS versions 10.10+!

NOTE: I am not affiliated with House House or Panic. This is a different goose. Direct support questions to the Discord!


 - NEW, OFFICIAL MODDING API! Join the discord discord.gg/xZFRmPT and check the #goose-mods channel for more info on this :D
 - YOUR OWN NOT-EPAD TEXTS! Add whatever notepad phrases you want, and the goose will pull them up!

 - NEW CONFIG TOGGLES! Customize the goose's behaviour further, silence the audio, and more!

From 0.2+:
- Unlimited memes! Put whatever memes you want in the assets folder! Goose will bring them.
- Added GIF support!
- Config the goose! Alter properties in the config.goos file (open it in Notepad) to adjust his aggression!)

 This is not a final itch page - just trying to get something up so I can upload the project tonight! :D

It's cute, will not lie.  Just one thing , (it might even affect others) it bothers me that every time it changes direction it goes into slow motion then changes, it might be intentional but it looks like an error on the animation. 



how to get it off my pc

yeah i got it on mac and for some reason when it attacks it wont stop so i have to restart my computer please could you fix this it is really annoying and you should and a shortcut to quit out of it

if you want to quit the goose on you're Mac then just Babel click the same goose that you turned on the you will have the desktop goose preferences shown and the bottom left corner there will be a button saying quit desktop goose

well attest that's for me don't know if it will be the same for you

?????????off ?

is this a virus?

for your life, uhh yes, but this is not a REAALLY virus, relax dude

is a virus for your games?


Mine won't work. It says it's an 'extractor' file instead of a zip and it keeps asking me to extract it but then nothing happens after that, anyone know how I can fix it?

You have to open the extractor file, Then select the location to extract it to wait for it to extract the files then ur done. Go into the file it extracted then click desktop goose!

if your on Mac and want to get it off your screen just drag the desktop icon on the screen and press hold on it then there's this box with a arrow above it press that  and once you press on it press quit desktop goose.

How do I get rid of them I by mistake clicked it 7 times now I have 7 ducks on my screen. help

Press and hold Esc


I am in love with my goose already, 

i tried to install it but it wont open it just keeps asking me to extract it

The same happened for me, it says its an 'extractor' file instead of a zip


yeah that happened to me with RuffTimes but you have to extract it in order to play it so yeah :

Did you figure out how to get it to work?

You have to open the extractor file, Then select the location to extract it to wait for it to extract the files then ur done. Go into the file it extracted then click desktop goose!


this is genius. I didn't even install it yet but *clap clap clap clap clap*.


I kinda wanna install this on one of the computers at my school and see what people's reactions are lol

is it a virus or not? if it is, show proof. it it isnt show proof. im so tired-

No, its not a virus, i dont have proof but i mean it's pretty funny given it'll randomly drag up some kind of note or something (it dragged in 4 while I was typing this lol)

how did you install it

First, you install it from itch.io, then you run the extractor, select desktop for where you want to extract it to, extract it, and then click "yes to all"

It isnt, for proof, well idk but i downloaded it and its not a virus it wont steal your password
