This fan-made character creator for Untitled Goose Game lets the goose be a detective

Egg-atha Christie.

An indie game developer working on upcoming life simulation game Paralives has made an unofficial character creator for Untitled Goose Game, leaving fans of the latter wondering why this isn't a feature in the game already.

Not only does the character creator let you change the goose's body type, but there's a few potential outfits for your feathery avatar too: including a crown and some kingly robes, a beanie hat and t-shirt, and even a detective style get-up (complete with a deerstalker cap) - presumably to catch the thief that's stolen every single item in the game.

The developer behind the unofficial goose creator, Alex Massé, put together the feature using the editing tools for Paralives as a test, as the characters for that game aren't quite ready to be shown to the world yet.

"Parafolks are not ready to be shown yet so I used the goose! The actual characters will be in a different style and have a lot more customisation options," he wrote in a follow up tweet.

Even though this isn't an official addition to the game, Massé has blessed us with some images of the various forms the goose could take, such as:

Fat Duck and Skinny Goose.

Untitled Goose Game is out now for PC and Switch, and might soon be available on console too. In the meantime, for more fowl shenanigans check out the speedrunner who managed to beat the game in just under four minutes.
