Update: Ok, all systems appear to be functioning.
Hi everyone, we’re in the process of moving to a new server, so some parts of this site are still gradually coming back online. Our old web hosting provider (bluehost, avoid them!) canceled our account with no warning for using too much of our “unlimited” resources. If you emailed or tried to contact us in the last 24 hours, you might want to try again. The good news is, there’s actually a level about crappy web hosts in World of Goo!
This wonderfully out-of-the-ordinary-review caught my attention -
“World of Goo is a game about industrialization, alienation in the modern world, post-modern commentaries on consumer culture, and the downfall of technologically advanced societies. It is all there for those who want it and it demands interpretation, but for those not interested, it is not mandatory. [...] This game is a quietly subversive joy.” (link)
From a blog called Experience Points, with smart reviews that are focused more on theme analysis, than button presses. Of course, that’s all crazy. World of Goo is a physics game about squealing little balls!
