For all the hype behind a behemoth of a game like Spore (2+ years of hype and delay!), this little game may come out of nowhere and steal some of the thunder for best game of the year. Enter World of Goo, a new puzzle game due out in a week (October 13) for WiiWare and PC that brings something entirely fun and new to the genre of puzzle games. From what I can gather so far, you basically form bonds to build structures out of blobs of Goo.
Here's an early review delivering a ton of praise.
Here's a link to a handful of video clips from IGN.
And here's the link the official website (check out the blog for info and updates).
There's much to look forward to here! Best of all, it shows how innovative indie-gaming studios have the potential to break through.
