World of Goo

World of Goo just came out for Mac and is only $20. We should bomb these guys with emails to convince them to port it to iPhone.

There was a thread before about this and someone said they contacted them and they were considering it.


Edit: maybe asking nicely would be better than "bombing them with emails," but you get my point.

I finally downloaded this yesterday for PC/Mac and it's surprisingly fun, if a little infuriating (selecting goo blobs can be hard even with the mouse, god knows what that's like on the Wii.) I'm not sure how well this would work on the iPhone because of the size of the screen and the sheer number of what would be tiny goo blobs but I'd definitely buy it if it did arrive. I figure it would need some type of zoom facility to really work well but these guys seem very talented so I'm sure it's something they can overcome.

What's really interesting about this is that it's an indie developer and it shows what can be done. Of course, that has to be prefaced by the fact that both of the people behind 2D Boy have previous professional game dev experience with Maxis and EA, so they're not fresh out of the block by any means but to have an idea, develop it and polish like they have done really makes me tip my hat to them.
