Default NOBY NOBY BOY - by Namco





Quote:
This is one app that's just way too out there for us to explain, so let's have BOY's friend the Fairy give it a try.

Hello!

I'm the Fairy. Nice to meet you!

So, you want to know what NOBY NOBY BOY is all about?
Hmm, how can I explain this...

See that pink creature in the photo? That's BOY.  
Enjoy stretching his body around and writing messages on his body.

For example, try following the steps below when you're late for work!

1. Write the message, 'Sorry, I'll be late for work!' on BOY's body.
2. Take a picture of the message on BOY's body.
3. Send the picture to your boss at work.

There's a high chance that your boss will get angry, but who knows, he or she may just forgive you!

Other things that you can do in this app include the following:

1. Transform BOY's body to become the hands of a clock.
2. Take pictures and have them appear in the application.
3. Stretch BOY's body using GPS.

When stretching BOY's body using GPS, he will stretch according to how far you have travelled.
So if you're an outdoor salesman, you can see just how hard you've been working!
And if you like to keep fit, you can use GPS while jogging to keep track of your progress.

Hmmmm. I see.
Thank you very much for the detailed explanation, Fairy.
Well, that sure left a lot to the imagination. But what did you expect from a fairy?
Anyway, enjoy BOY in as many ways as you can think of. That's what this app is all about!

Features of NOBY NOBY BOY:
• Simply put, this application lets you have fun stretching BOY.
• There are many ways to stretch him. There's even a menu for enjoying nothing but stretching.
• Memo: Use BOY's body as a notepad.
• GPS: Use GPS to stretch BOY.
• Mail: Take screen captures and attach them to mail.
• Facebook: If you're logged in to Facebook, you can see who passed on BOY's length to GIRL at each of the points on the map. You'll be able to use BOY to make friends all around the world.
• GIRL: The length BOY has stretched can be passed on to GIRL out in space.
• There are many other ways to stretch, so have fun and experiment.Use it for productivity and relaxation.

Noby Noby Boy (のびのび) is a video game for the PlayStation 3 by Keita Takahashi of Namco Bandai, creator of the Katamari Damacy series. The game was released worldwide on February 19, 2009. A version for the iPhone OS has been confirmed by Takahashi to be in development.
[...]
The player takes control of a worm-like quadrupedal character referred to as BOY. Using the controller, the left analog stick moves the front of Boy while the right stick controls the back. By moving both ends in opposite directions, the player can stretch Boy's abdomen to great lengths.

PSN game originally. But this looks very different from that game, so definitely not a "port." I imagine the game mechanics/goal are the same though. Just uh...don't ask me to explain what those are. Besides, I'm not sure anyone really knows anyway.
