World of Goo Is Metacritic’s iPad Game of the Year!

Sunday, December 26th, 2010

Our friend Amin just sent us a link to a metacritic report that names World of Goo Metacritic’s iPad Game of the Year, being the #1 top reviewed iPad game of 2010 with a score of 95.  Wow, what an honor!

Amin, by the way, is the mutual friend who introduced Kyle and I to each other back in 2006 so he is as responsible as anyone for the creation of World of Goo. Double thanks, Amin!

Hidden Meat Boy in World of Goo iPad Challenge!

Monday, December 20th, 2010

[Update: Challenge complete! See winner at bottom of post.] World of Goo for iPad has been out for a few days now, but nobody seems to have discovered that there is a little stowaway in the game yet.

There is a little Meat Boy hidden in one of the levels of the iPad version of World of Goo. Where could the little bloody guy be? He’s a slippy one!

Inspired by Willy Wonka, whoever finds the hidden Meat Boy first and tells us where he is via this contact form, gets A TOUR OF OUR FACTORY a free download code for gifting the iPad version. This is just for fun, and follows the honor system – please no decompiling the game or other forms of rotten behavior, or the Ooompa Loompas will have a song for you.

Good luck!

Update: Congrats to Detective Jimmy who found Meat Boy in less than two hours from the time this challenge was posted. Good sleuthing. Meat Boy’s location is revealed here, between the highlightable spoiler brackets:
