Goose Goose Duck—a social deduction recreation populated by lazy-eyed geese with, apparently, customizable farts—is tearing up the Steam charts. The sport has been out since 2021, launched within the wake of Amongst Uscrewmate-shaped shadow, however its current surge in recognition isn’t due to an inexplicable renewed curiosity in enjoying detective, however Okay-pop.

It appears to have began that approach, at the very least. The sport, which includes finishing a mission with teammates whereas attempting to unmask a traitor (or as one Steam assessment places it, “Amongoose”), made it on BTS member Kim “V” Tae-hyung’s Weverse stream, the place he performs multiplayer video games like Fall Guys with followers, again in November.

Weverse is Korean leisure firm Hybe Company’s model of Patreon, primarily, a spot for followers to work together with BTS and one another after they pay for a membership fee. And pay they do. By December 5, Tae-hyung’s Goose Goose Duck stream had already stacked over 8 million views on the fan app, Korean gaming journal Recreation Meca reports. These views had an actual influence. After the sport’s Weverse debut, its participant rely bought an astronomic kick—from around 4,000 players in November to 61,000 in December.

“In 10 days after V’s broadcast, Goose Goose Duck’s variety of customers elevated 5 instances, and about two weeks later, it elevated greater than 10 instances,” a translation of that Recreation Meca article says.

However Tae-hyung hasn’t streamed Goose Goose Duck since November, and the sport has solely been getting extra fashionable. On January 2, huge participant demand pressured builders to improve server capacity. The sport additionally not too long ago reached its all-time peak on January 5 with 563,677 concurrent gamers, SteamDB indicates. As compared, Amongst Us peaked at 447,476 concurrent players two years in the past. And that’s regardless of Tae-hyung streaming that game in November, too. So possibly Okay-pop doesn’t have the golden contact. Perhaps folks simply actually love geese.
