Default World of Goo

It's a real fun indie game. Only $20 and will be DRM free

I bought it and am playing the preview version of chapter 1. Coming out on PC, Wii, Mac and Linux.

Its like a bridge building game. You have to use the blobs to build a way to the vacuum pipe. The blobs can only move along the structure you build with the other blobs. A kind of mix of lemmings and elefunk on the PS3. The blobs kinda act like lemmings in that they are they are always moving around, but they also act as the building material to build the bridges and are a finite resource. Like Lemmings, you need to get a certain number of them to the vacuum pipe to get to the next level. And like elefunk the number of blobs at a point in the structure can cause it to sway and possibly collapse under the weight.

I couldn't believe I bought it. I was thinking I wouldn't but after watching the youtube videos I just though it looks interesting and it was only $20 and will be DRM free so I went for it. I just love the preview chapter, IIRC the full game comes out Monday and I can't wait.

I got the full version today and I am about 1/2 way through the second chapter and this game is awesome. I highly recommend it. One of the best casual games I have ever bought.
