How to explain World of Goo, an utterly charming PC game? It’s basically sticky blobs that when connected have the ability to bridge gaps, curve around odd contraptions and create pathways for other gooey blobs to get sucked into a giant vacuum-like pipe. Oh, and there’s physics involved. Um, what?
I truly don’t have the words. So, here’s a suggestion: first, check out the above video. Of course, it doesn’t reveal too much except that the music is freakin’ fabulous ear-candy. Then download and play the demo, which is available for both Windows and Mac. You will fall under its spell.
And don’t come crying to me when you realize you’ve stayed up until 2AM playing with the yummy balls o’ goo and are now totally worthless at work. I’ll have no sympathy, but I will have company in my misery.
