World of Goo

Against one of the stereotypical traits of those practicing my chosen profession, strangely I have never been much of a gamer, at least not since junior high school. In truth, I haven't bought a video game in years, but last weekend I did! (And it wasn't even a racing game.) It is a physics game, but you might never realize it. The art and music are both extremely cool, and there is one song I wish I had in my iTunes library. Here is a review that will do it more justice than I could.

They have a free demo, which was more than enough for me to want to support these two guys, who are only asking $20 for the full version as well...excellent joy-to-price ratio. The main site is here, which has some nice trailers if you'd like to see more before downloading the demo. Thanks Rob for pointing me to this one :)


  1. Love it! Do you think its too old for Colby? I am downloading the free trial so I'll see, I guess what I think - but it looks fun:) I posted Colby's rubix video on facebook yesterday & he's received lots of oooohs & aaaahhhs.. Pretty fun! OK - love ya. Mel

  2. Yeah I think 'World of Goo' would be great for Colby. The site has an entry on their blog showing a 4 year old that made it past the first chapter :)
