It's been nearly three weeks since the entire world was overrun by an impudent goose. While Untitled Goose Game had generated plenty of positive buzz beforehand, few could have predicted the the mainstream success of Melbourne-based House House's nuisance goose simulator.

From full-on fan art to quick and dirty copy-paste jobs, below we've gathered together just a small sample of some of our favourite goose-based crossovers...
