If you are one of those who enjoyed any experimental game back in the Wii era, it is very likely that you remember the particular puzzles of World of Goo. The duo of Tomorrow Corporation and 2D Boy surprised the entire world with some black slimes that they were capable of joining together to form structures of all kinds; skill on which this entire puzzle experience was based. Now, 15 years after building bridges, towers and structures that miraculously remained standing, these strange drops with eyes return to the fray with a totally unexpected sequel.
We learned about the existence of World of Goo 2 during The Game Awards 2023; gala that has served to show a brief trailer of what awaits us in a still undetermined date of 2024. In short, 2D Boy will continue in its line of offering challenges where the management of ‘goo’ and the ability to build varied structures are key to advancing throughout its multiple levels.
