The comical Goat Simulator game is finally in beta for Linux and OS X gamers.

Announced today by Anton Westbergh is the awaited public beta of Goat Simulator for Linux and Mac OS X. Goat Simulator is a third-person goal simulation video game that was released for Windows on April 1. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 3 and was originally intended as a joke by Coffee Stain Studios.

For those interested in this odd open-world game where you simply cause damage by controlling the goat, read the Linux / OS X release announcement via SteamCommunity.com.

Goat Simulator can be purchased via the Steam Store where currently it's on sale as part of Steam's Summer Sale.
