Here’s a neat opportunity you might want to seize from 2D Boy Games.
Their World of Goo is a unique and quirky physics-based puzzle game that won both the Design Innovation Award and the Technical Excellence Award at the Independent Games Festival in 2008.
World of Goo’s success demonstrates not only the rise in popularity of independently-developed games, but also the emphasis on physics in several recent puzzle games. World of Goo is included in a survey of casual games guests can play on the first floor of Strong National Museum of Play, home of NCHEG. In addition, museum guests will soon have the opportunity to play the physics-based independent game, Crayon Physics (2008 IGF winner) in our National Toy Hall of Fame exhibit.
This week only, in order to celebrate the first birthday of World of Goo, 2D Boy Games is offering this game to the masses at the incredible price of “pay whatever you think it’s worth.” It’s available for Windows, Mac, and Wii, and we highly recommend this opportunity to try out a fabulous game at a great price.
