Apparently the recipe for getting buzz for a new game is a little bit of humor, a little talent and a heck of a following.

Omahans Jack Gilinsky and Jack Johnson — aka Jack and Jack — are freshly graduated from high school and already Internet celebrities (you may know them from Vine). Now the game they created during their SkyVu Entertainment internship is trending nationally on Twitter.

#LetItGoat and #JackAndJackGame were the top two trends on Twitter over the lunch hour Wednesday after the game "Let it Goat" dropped on the App Store.

The simple sidescrolling game has only one objective: get the highest score possible by tapping your finger to make Mounty the Goat jump over spikes and zombies.

Jack and Jack have nearly 4 million followers on Vine and a combined nearly three million on Twitter, so it's no wonder there's a buzz around Let it Goat.
