We’ve known about 2D Boy’s physics-based puzzler for a little while now, but news reaches us today that the decision has been taken to switch its release from a disc-based Wii game to a downloadable experience from WiiWare. Sounds like a sensible move to us.
World of Goo is built around the idea of creating large structures using interconnected balls of, well, goo. The objective is to guide a requisite number of goo balls to the pipe representing the exit. In order to do so, players must use their various abilities to build bridges, towers and other structures to overcome gravity and various other perils such as chasms, hills, spikes and cliffs.
The title is split into five different chapters, each with its own graphical theme, musical accompaniment and unique atmosphere. Also confirmed is a bonus meta-game called World of Goo Corporation, where the objective is to build the highest tower using goo balls which the player collected through the course of the game.
The PC version of 2D Boys’ Lemmings-alike will also allow players to compete against one another online in a meta-game called World of Goo Corporation, in which the winner is the gamer who can build the highest tower of goo. Whether this feature will be implemented into the WiiWare version is yet to be soon.
World of Goo is still without a release date, but we’ll keep you posted.
