Tomorrow's World of Goo

Posted by

The future is announced

While some developers are churning out WiiWare ad nauseum, the developers of the critically acclaimed World of Goo have yet to treat us to another game since the release way back in 2008, leaving the corporations free to gobble up most of those Nintendo Points.

All this is now set to change, with the announcement of a new independent studio formed by the co-founders of Experimental Gameplay Project, including Kyle Gabler, one half of the extraordinary 2D Boy.

Tomorrow Corporation is born, with a mission statement to end these giant conglomerates' reign of terror... tomorrow.

Teaming up with Kyle on his righteous mission to rid the gaming world of execrable franchise-bleeding and license abuse is Kyle Gray, of Henry Hatsworth fame, and Allan Blomquist, a fellow Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center graduate and contributor to World of Goo.

There is no announcement of any game just yet, or indeed confirmation of the platform, but considering the enormous success of World of Goo and previous reports, it’s more than likely that a WiiWare title of some sorts is in development.

It's comforting to know the indie spirit is stronger (and richer) than ever before.

@Strom_Owl: What part of "mission to rid the gaming world of execrable franchise-bleeding and license abuse" don't you understand?

Maybe they just said that to be ironic, Big A2.

Gee, though... an indie game developer bent on ending the tyranny of other indie game developers? I've never been so happy to be so confused.

Yeah, guys I think this article is just trying to use the cheeky tone of the blog itself it's a little misleading. Just go there yourself and read it.
There's no real indication one way or the other of it not being a sequel, but I wouldn't bet on it since they formed a new company and would probably prefer to move on to new material. If it were a larger company I'm sure it'd be an easy choice to do a sequel, but probably a bore for a few guys to do after all the time they spent on the first one.

I have to admit that I've not even come close to finishing World of Goo, so I sure hope they don't make a World of Goo 2. Hopefully their obvious talents will be put toward a more addictive game. Mind you, I like what I've played of World of Goo, and I love the style, but for some reason it just never quite captures me and I don't play it very long, and now it's languished for many months unplayed. Also, note that this is only one half of the World of Goo team, and who knows if they were the main influence or not. Maybe that would be good, though.

This is some of the best news I've heard in a while. From the sound of it I would expect them to develop a totally new IP. Besides, World of Goo is one of the greatest independent games ever made and a sequel could possibly detract from that. I'm gonna watch this one.

I personally don't know why everyone loved world of goo so much, I just couldn't get into it. The graphics were done well, but the dark and dissmal setting wasn't that 'inviting'. Also, the gameplay was kinda lacking... You didn't really do much. Hopefully they make the game a bit more complex next time with a more bright story? Hmmm...
