World of Goo

I caught sight of World of Goo while browsing slashdot of all places. It turns out that a Linux version of it was recently made available, so I had to give it a shot.

The style reminds me a lot of Tim Burton’s movies.  The gameplay is similar to fantastic contraption mixed in with lemmings.  I’ve only played for a few minutes to get a feel for it, I suspect it gets a lot more challenging as you go on.  The little bit I did play, impressed me enough to want to tell others about it.

There are versions for Linux, Mac and Windows – as well as Wii.  If you’ve got any interest in puzzle games, give this one a spin.  Kudos to 2D Boy for  making a cool cross platform game – nice to see that a small team with a vision can still make a go of it.
