What is this “Droopy Blocks” game?

“Droopy Blocks” is a fresh new take on 2D action/puzzle games designed specifically for tablets. The Droopy Blocks are cute, living blocks of goo that were made in a secret laboratory. They were accidentally melted and now must be put back in their original shapes. To get the Droopy Block back into its original shape the player uses little creatures called “Suckers” to suck the gelatinous block in different directions. While the Suckers pull the block in the direction the player chooses, the player holds the parts of the block they do not want to move with their fingers. Through this fun, finger-twisting and mind-bending gameplay the player can reshape the “Droopy Block”!

Key Features:
  • Innovative dripping and holding puzzle gameplay mechanic
  • 80 puzzles set in 4 diverse stages
  • Puzzle with character! The Droopy Blocks giggle when poked in the mouth or wince when stuck in the eye
  • A high-score, 5 minute, Championship mode that allows players to compete against each globally via OpenFeint leaderboards.
  • Family friendly content and 4 profile slots so multiple people can play on the same device

This all sounds quite intriguing, when will it come out?
  • The target release is early 2012, January or February

That's a bit weird

The guy on the video brushes his teeth first and right after that eats the breakfast.

Haha, good point on the tooth-brushing sequence. Any funny ideas on how we could destroy a Droopy Block in a future video?

Gameplay Video

Glad you liked the teaser. The gameplay video will be released this Friday.

Do people typically update the existing thread for a game or make a new one for each trailer etc...?

Thanks
