Wild Goose Chase is a Niche challenge inspired by Untitled Goose Game and the behaviour of real life geese. It is intended to be a shorter challenge to play whilst working on older tribes. The goal of this tribe is to breed white winged nichelings with platypus beak and webbed hind legs, to resemble their legendary Great Honking Goose.

Recap

The starters.

The game begins with four starters, who have some memories of the Great Honking Goose, but have drifted far from their roots. They are:

  • Feather, a white beaked female. She has persuaded the others to come with her in search of their legends.
  • Lark, a grey/brown beaked male, with one wing - the only winged nicheling of the tribe.
  • Robin, a brown cracker jaw female with no bird features, but bears water body.
  • Fechine, a red female with webbed feet but no bird features.

The two non-beaked nichelings go in search of food, leaving Feather and Lark together. Although Feather and Lark seem like ideal mates, there is a twist - Feather is sick, and has low fertility, making her a gamble for Lark as per the challenge rules he must choose a mate for life. However he finds her visions for the tribe attractive, and takes her as his mate. Feather finds a nest in a lucky place, with a tree and a berry bush nearby that she can claim as her territory. Robin and Fechine are disappointed as Lark is the only male, so decide to keep searching for wandering mates.

Feather and Lark's first child is a girl named Dove. She has two wings, a beak, and a plain white coat, making her already close to the ideal goose phenotype. Meanwhile Robin and Fechine are happily swimming in the water and chasing fish, and have become close friends. A peaceful bear appears near Lark and Feather's nest, but being highly territorial, Lark tries to chase it off. Soon after they have a second female with the same phenotype as Dove, Tross (short for Albatross). Lark runs into a wandering male, Raiko, and although he does not attack him, he does not invite him into the tribe as he is very old so would not make a good mate for any of the remaining females.

Dove watches over the territory.

Dove grows up fast and is able to patrol the borders of her parent's territory with her ability to fly. Her appearance shocks Robin and Fechine, who understand that she is closer to the tribe's ideal than they expected at this stage. Another wanderer appears, this time a sick male named Prizy, further angering the territorial Lark. Fechine and Robin unlock the fishing tail gene, but neither have been able to find a mate and they are steadily growing older. Lark and Feather's territory attracts another wanderer, a young male named Zeebedee, but Tross and Dove are more interested as he is close to their age. He is from a savannah tribe lost in wildfires, who may have been related to the Zedari Tribe. Meanwhile Feather has another child, a male named Eostrix (a genus of prehistoric owls). He is her last child, as her sickness is starting to catch up to her. Her family gather as close as they can for her final day.

Feather's passing creates a power vacuum in her old territory between the sisters. Dove is the elder, who always believed she would inherit the territory, but Tross has a higher reputation. For now the territory remains Lark's as the sisters are not full grown. Robin and Fechine also have to leave the tree they have found because it would fall under the territory if Tross inherited, so they follow the river inland. They find another tree on the other side of the island, outside of any contested areas. Finally both sisters grow to adulthood and can face off via rolling a random number to determine the winner. Dove comes out as the winner, claims Feather's territory, and takes Zeebedee as her mate.

Tross would be allowed to stay in the territory as a gatherer, but she would rather find her own and have children there. She has lost some reputation from the battle, but still has a score equal to Dove, so can claim a big one. Lark and Eostrix are still allowed to stay as Eostrix is young and Lark is no longer breeding, so they can explore the shores looking for worms and unlock the platypus beak. Dove also invites in a wanderer named Night-Mare (perhaps another relative of the Zedari), later renamed Chisel, but insists she leave her territory and find space elsewhere.

Tross finds another tree far enough away to establish her own territory from, and calls from the treetop to attract a mate. Robin and Fechine have less luck, and approach the end of their lives having still not found any wandering males. They are happy where they are, though, with abundant food and company from one another. Dove has her first child, a girl named Inga (derived from "flamingo" for her pink fur). Eostrix grows to adulthood and starts to think of leaving his sister's territory to establish his own. The tribe are a little worried as Zebeedee's genes have diluted the goose phenotype.

Tross attracts a male called Zizi, but Lark advises her to chase him away because his genes are not very good. She invites him into the tribe but turns him away to the north of the island, in the same direction as Chisel. Dove has another child, this time a purr snouted male Chilie, after the Chilian flamingo. Soon after, Lark and the two elder females die of old age. Zizi and Chisel meet up, far away from the sisters' territories, and become mates. Their territory is very small, but has plenty of resources, although they attract a bearyena. Tross finally manages to attract a young male, T'arche, with white fur and red horns. She invites him in with the intent of making him her mate when he grows up. Meanwhile Dove has a third child, a girl named Swift.

Tross is interested in making sure the tribe grow bigger and have plenty of genetic variety. She resolves to keep calling to attract more wanderers. Her calling attracts a wanderer called Zyroze, who enters Dove's territory. She wants Zebeedee to attack him, but he is reluctant because he knows he will poison him. Instead he invites Zyroze into the tribe, in return for his service as a non breeding gatherer. Zizi and Chisel chase away the bearyena and have a female baby named Tawny, who has one wing. Eostrix passes along the shore, hoping to set up his own territory on the peninsula just outside of Dove's. Tross has her first child, a girl named Tern with one wing and water body. Meanwhile, Dove has the first double winged child of the third generation, a boy named Hawk. The tribe manage to unlock the bird beak gene thanks to Dove and Tross' flying, although they would prefer platypus beak.

Although Dove has a huge territory, she is starting to run low on room with all her children. She decides to have her older children move out to the unclaimed centre of the island to gather more resources and perhaps later find mates and found their own territories. Meanwhile Tross has another child named Wren, with double wings, and Dove has a beaked child with one wing named Nuno. Inga, the oldest child of Dove, is grown by now and wants to claim her own territory. Eostrix claims the island, and starts to think of finding a mate. Chisel and Zizi, meanwhile, manage to mutate wings and have a double winged boy named Rooster, who looks like a stinky cheese nicheling from the Seeker's Journey.

Tross calls and invites a spiked wanderer, Korala (renamed Chicknee). She has no goose genes, but Tross believes that anyone who answers her call has a connection to the flock and is welcome to join, as long as they do not stay in her territory. Her calling eventually unlocks the peacock tail gene. She manages to mutate it in her next child, a winged boy named Caspian. Meanwhile Dove has another boy named Ruddy, who despite having only one wing has a reputation stat of 11, one of the highest since the sisters were born.

Inga leaves her mother's territory and finds Eostrix, who becomes her mate. In Tross' territory, a wandering young female appears, who had been able to hide with the tribe due to her similar markings. She is named Azora-Coo, after the cuckoo. Several more babies are born, including a white double winged female with peacock tail named Feather II after her grandmother. By now much of the island has been claimed by the different pairs. The platypus beak gene is unlocked, making it easier to mutate the goose phenotype.
