A downloadable goose-sperience for Windows and macOS

Download NowName your own price

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

tip... read the Read me! Honk.txt file. And don't act like a dumb ass in the comments

Also samperson please turn this into a Trojan horse or a computer worm. That would be very good, and it would please the hjonk.

dude what if you add  a  health bar  to the  goose   for like some action

example: if the goose  got yuor mouse  youcan  click to atackk him

and  Prees R  to activaide the health  bar  T  for options for the health bar

There is a mod that does something similar to that called sizzurpmods.


Please Android version


that not how that works. you cant just have a clear overlay of a goose on top of phone screen. Imagine having a phone that used a desktop. it wouldn't work. The surface can but only when its not in tablet mode


Will this ever be for phones?

How rare is to having rainbow goose???

(1 edit)

Not rare at all, It's just a mod you enable.

Great concept.  

Found an interesting bug maybe.  When holding the escape to close the goose when it attacks your mouse before it closes it does freeze.  Doesn't happen every time though and doesn't stop you from using the mouse.  Just an interesting happenstance.  

this would be good for some kids like me

I love having him while I'm doing anything.

I need help how do i make it drag images anywhere?


how do I get him to bring different memes on Mac

Put different images in the memes folder.


Chromebooks need this

y e s .




when I got this, I literally yelled: HJONK HJONK AM GOOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


hjonk hjonk am goose


can ANYONE tell me how to remove it from apple laptop!!!1

Use the close goose application (Automator) or open terminal and use the command killall "Desktop Goose"

can someone help me get it off my computer I have an apple laptop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What you wanna do is either govto task manager and close it, or hold escape. If you mean delete the file, then delete the files normally.

didnt  work

is it a virus? can i get it off?



click "Quit Goose"



No it's not a virus. Yes you can delete it.

Viruses DAMAGE your computer



can you please make on for chromebook, I really really want it and it hurts to not have it so please, make one of the best games i've ever seen on chromebook.


This is a lot of fun

Escape from 小ache 

It isn't evil enough, i don't think its possible because it is a overlay but it would be amazing if it could grab your files and close tabs. even if it grabbed on your mouse and made you click and drag that would be awesome.

there's a clicker mod

(1 edit)

I liked! It's fun to see how a goose chases its cursor and brings files from the corner all day, and I also love the option to customize images or text files. I hope this continues to update and
Add more actions, with all my support, I love this!

Deletes files?

No, sorry spelling error

Can you change how the goose looks? More specifically, is there a file that determines how the goose looks?

No, the goose is made using shapes in the code

Does it walk over tabs such as chrome?

Lol the goose just walked off the screen, I can hear it walking around, but he's just been side screen for the past 5 minutes?? Is there a way to get him back where I can see him???

For saying that.

Where the zip goes?

Thats was a zip 

I want to see if this app is anything like that.

I see this is not a virus yeh?

If this is a setup Say that in the comments (Reply)

I Like this. not an asshole.

i love this thing


There are times when the goose will orbit and drag my cursor with it and wont let go. Anyone else experiencing this? (v0.22 for Mac)

Tried force quitting (though since it's not an app it didn't show up)

Tried holding down 'esc' for a long time didn't work.

Also is there a better place to submit bug reports?

I'm currently having the exact same problem. It hasn't let go for 10 minutes. Did you manage to fix yours?

This is not a bug. The goose WILL hold on to your cursor forever in version 0.22 and 0.2. This has been removed in version 0.3. For windows only.


hey! i love this think bro and i have a litle idea for you...i just think it can be funny if the goose have a animation of sleep and when you touch it he turn in angry lol other things can be like toys idk like a pet of something ? i think it can be a good thinks for this so think about it :/ :3

honk for Dell? I want him :(

Hold ESC
