World of Go-on, hurry up and release It

I’d seen the trailers linked, but didn’t realise one of the World of Goo was a new one until Chris Evans mentioned it. And – blimey! – it really is something, showing a load of new bits and pieces from later in the game…

Message to 2dboy. Hurry up. For God’s Sake, Hurry Up.

    Those guys are just insane, the production quality and level of finish in the trailer videos alone puts half of their ex-employer’s work to shame.

  2. Chris Evans says:

    /agrees with Butler

    /agrees with KG on the ‘hurry up!’

    God damn I want the full version of this game….right now if possible :D

  3. Matu says:

    Goddammit, I’m already depressed and that music didn’t help a bit. And little crawly that look like maggots…

    Looks fun though.

    As far as i remember: PC and WiiWare version are released together.

    So: Nintendo, hurry up!

  6. Thelps says:

    Gotta love how in the other trailer (previously linked on RPS, the top one shown on Chris’ blog) has the words Coming ‘Soon’ in it. The inverted commas over ‘soon’ show a refreshing amount of honesty, and make a nice change from the usual ‘it’ll be done when it’s done’ epithet.

    Are console heretics allowed here?

    (I need this game like, now)

    World of Goo: This year’s most epic physics game.

  9. PleasingFungus says:

    Is it properly a physics game? I mean, it has physics, but it’s not really what I typically think of as a physics game. (As opposed to, say, Armadillo Run.)

  10. Alex says:

    Are console heretics allowed here?

    Yes, ofcourse.. *whispers* just don’t mention the war!

  11. Smee says:

    That music! It’s a remix of Kyle Gabler’s ‘Best Of Times’ song from a few years back! Those drums aren’t drums! It’s just banging cardboard on chairs!

    I’m very pleased with myself that I know this.

    I just had to find something similar to keep the waiting from getting to me, so I got Lemmings and Troddlers from (Lemmings being the thing we weren’t allowed to play on the school computers, so I missed it the first time round). Don’t know of anything more modern that could be considered in the same genre.

  13. kyle gabler says:

    Thanks for the shoutout, kg! Smee, how in the world did you know that :)

  14. The_B says:

    Damn you Wii for the delay. DAMN YOU!

  15. Noc says:

    I guess they’re just taking a little while to get their Wii up.


  16. ChrisL says:

    Is there a demo yet?

  17. Niccus says:

    Pre-ordering will allow you to play the 1st chapter of the game (like, right now) (well, since February) and will secure you the extra-special Profanity Pack.

    (it’s good awesome.)

  18. Bobsy says:

    Isn’t it amazing just how much difference a decent bit of music can make? It continues to baffle me why most games still refuse to acknowledge just how important music is.

  19. Chris Evans says:

    All the latest from Ron Carmel regarding what we see in the new video and on release dates here.

  20. Ian says:

    If they can make the trailer for a game called World of Goo seem intense, dramatic and epic I believe they can do anything.

  21. wiper says:

    Ahh, bloody Wii-induced delay. Still, World of Goo Chapter 1 was an awesome Valentine’s Day present (certainly the best one that’s ever been sent out en masse by a games developer), so I can forgive. A little.

  22. Crispy says:

    Definitely looking forward to this. Indie originality strikes again!

  23. Mr Pink says:

    po: I would consider Armadillo Run if you want something else to play while you’re waiting. Great physics fun, I still go back and play it occasionally.

  24. caramelcarrot says:

    Having just tried it, it reminds me of Pontifex (a bridge building game) quite a lot – except simpler, more dynamic and more friendly to use. Of course there’s more to it than building bridges.

    Why not try some Tiffany jewelry animal charms.
