Frankly, I don’t even know where to start with this one how are you supposed to write about a game where you control soccer-playing alpacas? Much less ones that can rowboats in the overworld?

Developed by the wisecrack minds over at Salt Castle Studio, I can honestly say that playing this game is like trying to play digital foosball using Goat Simulator-style physics after everyone has had a little too much to drink.
