Like goats?Like Demon Goats? Well, doyyyy; Everybody does. So here's a strange legend, born from the heart of Rural Wisconsin...
Ghost stories are fun... but Goat stories are better. The Goatman Cometh is a short-story survival game (yeah, we just invented the genre... maybe) where the rules are simple and gameplay is quick: survive an ever-changing landscape long enough to escape the legendary Goatman of Hogback Ridge. Easy, right?
No. Wrong. You are completely mistaken sir/madam! It's pretty stinkin' hard.
The story takes place in rural West Bend, WI just after the end of the Civil War. A soldier of the North, Nathaniel Clayton, returns home to marry his sweetheart Sarah from years before the brutal conflict, and upon doing so, the two are married and set out to start their lives together on a homestead in the quiet countryside of Washington County, WI. But along their horse-drawn travels, a wagon wheel is damaged on the crudely-made Hogsback Road (a real road, still there today!) and the newlyweds must come to grips with their situation: Nathaniel needs to find help and fast. Things go sour... and he doesn't return as the evening fades to a dim light, and then to darkness (pretty much the setup for any good haunted legend).
