House House explained that the in-joke became a real game to The Guardian in 2018. “We don’t have these geese experience. We’re complete outsiders,” House House programmer Nico Disseldorp said at the time. “To us, they might as well be a cartoon animal you don’t actually ever see in real life.”
IGN also reached out to House House for more context around their conversation, but the developers are out of the office to attend the Climate Strike (via Kotaku).
