April 1st is always remembered as April Fools’ Day, which naturally makes it the perfect excuse to play pranks on your friends. As it could not be otherwise, the world of video games also takes advantage of the date to have a wave with the guys, so we’ve separated for you some of the coolest jokes that aired today!
Bruno Micali retires the greatest tradition of Fridays
Those who follow Voxel assiduously know very well that the main tradition of our website and channel is the Friday pizza duly blessed by Mica in his networks. To the general sadness of the nation, the master announced today that he is setting off on a new gastronomic journey…
I got sick of pizza… I don’t think I like pizza anymore. I won’t ask today… pic.twitter.com/NPQIDuA4NA

Twitch launches new categories for memes
Here’s an idea so bad that it actually ends up doing a 180-degree turn and looks good: Twitch today posted an announcement of a series of changes to its stream categories, so we can now tune into channels with only people reading on silence, eating pizza or working!
Today we’re excited to launch five new categories you can watch and stream to.
Here’s what’s new… ?? 1/6

From Jackass for Goat Simulator!
I don’t know about you, but I grew up watching Jackass on MTV, and one of my favorite actors was Steve-O. So it was a great joy to visit the game’s profile Goat Simulator today and see that your social media team remembered the star when confirming him as director for the first feature film inspired by the game!
Coffee Stain (somewhat) proudly presents…
‘Goat Simulator: The Musical Motion Picture’ – an udder spectacular in the making, directed by @steveo himself.https://t.co/Zz6sU8cvCd#GoatSimMovie #GoatSimulator pic.twitter.com/Wke6nBoKlz

The amazing one-key mechanical keyboard
Science has come a long way in recent years, and we’ve finally reached the point where the world’s smallest keyboard has taken shape! Meet the brand new Corsair K1 RGB, the best way you’ll find on the market to press the F key. And Just the F key, because it’s the only one on this high-end mechanical keyboard:

a wet dream with Sonic Frontiers
The Japanese are particularly cruel in their games. As a fan of the sprinting hedgehog, I would love for this new edition of Sonic Frontiers were true, as it includes a bath basket, towel, waterproof Mega Drive, Game Gear and even a rubber ducky!

Among Us turns into a horse race
Mica may have lied about the pizzas, but do you know what really happened? His mic leaking during our TGA live just as he called Among Us VR of “what the hell”. I wonder what he would think of the announcement of a “Horse Mode” in the game, with new animations and sound effects inspired by these beautiful animals!
Fire Emblem: Three Houses crown your afternoon tea
If you still needed more proof of Japanese cruelty, how about this collector’s edition of Fire Emblem Three Houses? As in the Nintendo Switch exclusive strategy game you can have a cup of tea with your waifus and husbands, this pretend kit lets you take the same experience to the real world!

A great multiplayer for A Short Hike
If you played the captivating indie A Short Hike, probably adding a multiplayer mode for up to 99 players wasn’t the first wish that crossed your mind, but a mod released on itch.io made it come true! Only run if you want to try it out, as support is promised for just two weeks!
