Eco-Sperm Physics: Polluted Planet

By Jim Rossignol on March 25th, 2008 at 10:39 am.


It’s interesting (and occasionally horrifying) what you can dig up by typing random things into YouTube. I just discovered the beta test of a physics game, Polluted Planet (danger – initially noisy website), which is about cleaning up a level using oil-on-water type particle interactions. It’s a pretty clever piece of design, even though it locked up my browser a couple of times during play. Everything requires physics to defeat, and the terrain itself has a rubbery, flexible quality to it.

After the jump, the video that led me to it.

    Very cute and very clever.

    Though, I have to wonder what this has to do with “Innovative tools for the 21st Century Lineman”. Thankyou very much, Google Ads.

    Someone’s been dicking with the variables. I can’t get spermy to do anything but sink, no matter which way he’s… erm… ‘producing fluids’.

    Hey, it’s me (the guy who made the video).

    I’ve uploaded 3 new vids, featuring black edition, beta2, and a version featuring surface tension. All have download links.
