3 comments by CiroContinisio on Feb 2nd, 2012

After the big adventure that was the Global Game Jam (I'm going to post about it in a while) where I had the pleasure to work with Arvi Teikari and the Vlambeer guys, here's the promised update. This time, some familiar faces are going to be unveiled, they are...

THE GOO BALLS

(from World of Goo)


From 2D Boy's World of Goo come the mythical balls of goo in their most classic grey guise. You will find them in the story mode in an UFHO that is boarded using a bridge made of goo balls. After beating them, they will be selectable in multiplayer as usual.

STORY
These harmless grey balls are part of a somehow simple race that more evolved species call "Gooo". The name suggests that they are ancestors of the Gooys in the evolution tree, but they also share two bright eyes with the Jeevils. In fact, research shows they may be the species that originated both of these aforementioned races, which developed different evolution traits after being exposed to different climates and ecosystems.It is known in fact that the Gooys developed a bigger and visible brain that gives them increased reasoning capabilities.

The Gooos instead tend to be simple-minded and stay in big packs. They also show a tendency of building high structures when in big numbers, getting one on top of the other, and stay in this position for a long time.The reason for this behavior is uncertain. Some Gooy scientists affirm that they have observed that they tend to do it near pipes, but this theory has no scientific ground and is shrugged by other Gooys of science.

GAMEPLAY
The Gooos have 6 moves like many other races.Their peculiarity though is that they leave a goo trail behind them, each time they move. If the trail is not broken by rotating rooms, they can use their last move during a turn to sling back in the room they started from, using this goo trail as if it was an elastic to quickly go back on their path to save moves on the next turn.


If a goo trail is broken by the rotation of a room or area, the Gooo can only go back as far as the trail is still intact. Don't forget the World of Goo is available in the latest Humble Bundle! Don't let the name fool you, it's for Android as well as for PC, Mac and Linux.

This is all for now, stay tuned because another guest is coming tomorrow.Also, we're into the last week of the campaign. We're almost at 50%, help us in reaching the goal before the deadline!

Awesome game it seems! But I can't buy it :s
Don't say "get a job" because im 11 and in the place I live kids like me cant get a job, even if it is selling lemonade. I'd ask my parents but I don't wanna give them too much pressure :s
Plus, sorry to say, but I don't like buying games that, when you end them, you end. I'd rathey buy games like minecraft, wich never end(And I did!)
