The Goatperson DLC adds a new playable class to Desktop Dungeons' already large roster of characters. The Goatperson is a throwback to roguelike gameplay of yesteryear, answering the oft-asked question "What would Desktop Dungeons be like if you had to eat food like regular roguelikes?", the less-oft-asked question "What do Goatpeople eat anyways?" and the briefly-asked "Why did we just switch gods?".
This DLC also contains a new building, the aptly named Goat Glade, which houses a useful Item Lottery for players with more gold than sense, as well as a series of unique Triple Quests that pit players against three randomly generated dungeons in a row (reminiscent of the infamous campaign in the Desktop Dungeons alpha). Each Triple Quest reveals new knowledge about the world of Desktop Dungeons.

The Goatperson DLC is a great content pack for those who have finished the game and are (literally) hungry for more. The Goatperson is a special challenge class that flips normal gameplay on its head, fundamentally changing the way you play every dungeon while the triple-quests give you some extra challenges at a very high difficulty level.
Those new to Desktop Dungeons shouldread more finish the game before buying the DLC. This really is extra content, and you're not missing out on anything by leaving it until you've already experienced everything the base game has to offer.

This DLC should probably be picked up on sale, if ever. $2 or $3 may be worth it, but it seems fairly slim as far as DLCs go - definitely not a full-blown expansion in the old sense.
It takes a long time to even unlock any of the new content - I haven't managed it yet. I've read the wiki and the Goatperson sounds like a uniquely challenging class designed for veterans, so hardcoreread more players who finish the base game and want more will find this game worth the price. If the DLC is not on sale and you're new to Desktop Dungeons, then you should almost certainly wait.
I'm not dissatisfied in any way - it's just that this DLC is sort of slim, and consists of only late-game content, and probably is not worth the full price. I bought it on release at 33% off, so no worries.
This content began as a freebie for Early Access users and VIPs, and became a DLC after the fact. I would suggest to the developer that DLCs be designed more intentionally with more content available sooner, and pervading more parts of the overall gameplay. More diverse item drops, for example, or a hunger mode for non-goat classes. Other than that, keep up the good work, but the buyer should know what they're getting.
