Year Of Goo

By Jim Rossignol on March 11th, 2008.


2008 will be known as the Year Of Gaming Goo. The other gooey game is Goo! In which you must surround your enemy with your viscous oozings. It looks like a fun idea and there’s a new build of the demo up on the official site. Unfortunately the game requires an Xbox 360 controller to play, and yet doesn’t recognise my one (which works fine with other games). I make sadface. Can anyone else get it working?

KG EDIT: I did. I suspect the problem is with reading the specific make of XBox controller Jim used rather than the game per se – it recognises mine, and I had problems with games recognising the one he used previously. However, when in game, the enemy Goos don’t appear to be visible, a problem shared by Meat Circus. But other people are having more luck. PC gaming, eh?

World of Goo

By John Walker on September 12th, 2007.

(Via Fun-Motion) San Fran indie developers 2D Boy have posted a trailer for their forthcoming World of Goo. Here’s my impression of it:

I absolutely haven’t got the faintest idea what’s going on here, yet I know that it is good. It’s one of those occasions when I’d far rather be utterly mistified, than find out the reality of the situation, no matter how excellent it might be. Like watching Spanish soap operas, or The Bloomberg Channel.

(So no, I never played Tower of Goo, which you can get here.) [You really should play it, John, it's brilliant - Rest Of RPS Team.]
