The launch trailer for Coffee Stain's Goat Simulator might just be the funniest promotional tool of the year so far.

Goat Simulator is the upgraded version of a joke title which promises "millions of bugs". And somehow this is the perfect pitch, as evidenced by the shot of the titular goat propelled through the air by twin gas canisters with a rag-dolled human in tow! The goal of the game cleverly mirrors the prime directive of all goats - Topple Humanity.

Speaking on Goat Simulator's Steam Page, Coffee Stain promise, "We're only eliminating the crash-bugs, everything else is hilarious and we're keeping it."

The gaming event of Q2 2014, Goat Simulator launches on April 1.
