There’s something intrinsically motivating about building things as high as possible, so 2D Boy‘s physics-based World of Goo is just a consequence of that compulsive and fun experience, and now it’s finally available on GOG.
Even if the game is already quite old and available on Steam for a while (actually in 2008), the gameplay remains highly addictive with the main goal to bring balls of goo to the exit of each level. This is done by building structures when connecting the little guys, each with individual abilities. The further one progresses, the more complicated and difficult it gets with new obstacles to overcome. Visually and aurally, the game has also aged very well with a great comic art style and an amazingly catchy soundtrack.
So there’s really no excuse not to try World of Goo if you’re into clever puzzle games with a Lemmings vibe, and now that it’s DRM-free, it’s even better news, although it would have been nice to be able to download the soundtrack as well. However, the title launches with a 50% discount until Thursday, February 12, at 10:59 AM GMT, so make sure to get this indie gem that supposedly started a revolution of the industry when small studies tried out crazy and original ideas.
