Oh boy, I’ve wanted to cover this one for ages! Perhaps you’ve seen it on the list of IGF entrants…
Goo! is a new and strange action/strategy game from PillowFort (previously Amorphous Games), which is actually TIGS regular Aubrey Hesselgren and Tommy Refenes (Bezzy and Tommunism on the forums, respectively). In Goo! you control an amorphous blob of goo trying to overwhelm and absorb opposing blobs of goo as they try and do the same to you.+ Actually, that’s just one of the many play modes planned for the finished game, but whatever. Watch the video.
Now, this video isn’t a trailer exactly — it’s more of a live demonstration. It shows off some of the modes, skins, procedural effects… and touches on many coming additions.
Check it out!
This is definitely something to keep an eye on. Show some love, people.
MAC USERS: If the above video is trouble, check out the version at PillowFort’s site.
SEXY UPDATE: Oops, nearly forgot — you can follow Goo!‘s progress (and read up on its storied past) over at ’s development blog">its development blog. Until the new PillowFort site goes up, that is!
