Pilgor stares at a tunnel-top road sign, indicating the distance from Helvete.

Helvete is a location in the video game Goat Simulator. It is found on the other end of a tunnel outside Goat Ville, with a sign hanging over the tunnel indicating its distance as 3 kilometers away. Considering developer Coffee Stain Studios AB's Swedish heritage, Helvete is a reference to the Swedish word for hell. Unlike Him Len, the city found on the opposite side of Goat Ville, Helvete can not actually be seen over the hills despite being allegedly closer geographically.[1] This may imply that Helvete is within the hills, an allusion to Hell being below the Earth, whereas Him Len towers above Goat Ville and is viewed as an idiom for "the light at the end of the tunnel." This could also imply Goat Ville, located between heaven and hell, is actually a Purgatory where Pilgor is invincible and not bound to the physics of reality.


  1. According to road signs at each end of Goat Ville, Him Len is 5 kilometers away in one direction while Helvete is 3 kilometers away in the other. Ironically, Him Len can be seen in abundance while Helvete, geographically closer, never seems to peek out from the infinite hillside.
