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!

[And if you wanna support my work, I made some new things you can check out!]

Desktop Cat Cursor: Transform  your ordinary mouse cursor into its eternal nemesis: a cat paw


now, back to goose stuff...


- Adds an official mod to let Desktop Goose play in leaf piles! See autumn.txt in the files for more!

*Mac doesn't support mods yet. Wait for 2023. :)


 - 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

OMG we can open more then one goose!

Can I post a translation of this project into Russian on the Internet?

Is this a virus because left and right i see false positives and I'm not sure if i should keep it or toss it

i LOVE THIS but he wont leave me ALONE!!1!

ITS AMAZING, but is there any other way other than opening the file and having to click a lot to wake up the little guy, or is it the only way? it doesn't bother me though

Goose Approves. Maybe? He tracked mud all over it immediately afterwards so who can tell.

does anybody know how to get rid of the goose
