Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

a world of goo

so, you know those bridge-builder games where you have to build a bridge across the gap so a train or a car or a goat can get across? world of goo is like that, but much more organic, and with a lemmings kind of feel to it. also cooler because it has pretty colors and decent music

gooqb9.jpg

your goal in each level is to use your supply of gooballs to build a goo tower, bridge, or whatever you can to get you to the end of the level, which is actually a pipe leading to the goo factory (since, you see, the gooballs are delicious). there are a few different types of gooballs that you get to use, from the standard to balloons to reusable to some things i've only read about but never used since i just bought this. it's all quite sexy.

here's a trailer form well over a year ago, which is what got me excited for this game in the first place:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-A_JfkzPwww


and here's the trailer that i guess belongs to the wii version (although it is also out for steam. you should buy it for the wii anyway since it's a wiiware title and everyone needs a reason to turn on their cute little white box every so often)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o30HZquEnuw


so you should buy it because everyone loves physics games and supporting independent games is super cool
plus it's only like $15

potatoe on
I tried to write "but that" and my hands naturally wrote "butt hat", which is vastly superior in every way.

    I just went into the MMORPG forum to see if anybody had anything interesting to say about CoH and there's a thread about the BioWare/Lucasarts announcement on the 21st or whatever and I read some of it and oh god some of those posts.

    I kind of want this, but I was terrible at Tower of Goo.

    Maybe I'll be less terrible with an objective.

    I love the style of the game, but I'm absolutely horrible at these kinds of games.
    Seriously my mind is just incapable at some of the feats of engineering that the later levels will inevitably require of me.

    But dammit I will probably pick this game up if I have spare cash moneys in between everything else that is coming out.

    The second trailer reminded me of Samurai Jack. Which is a positive thing, so I'll buy it.

    This is painful.
    It is a good pain.
    Except I'm in chapter one with all of one of the paths, and I'm struggling with the "build a gigantic fuckoff tall free standing tower" level on the other path. RRRRRRRRR.
    Was kind of building something three squares across, but it always ends up toppling, I guess I don't have the mental agility to just build quickly up.

    Just beat the first act. Second one is much harder. It's fun though. The difficulty actually gets less frustrating as you figure out the "tricks."

    Chapter 4 was by far my favourite. But they were all fantastic. Time to try and get all those OCD scores. I need to save all the gooballs.
