World of Goo

October 21, 2009 § Leave a comment

Last year we stumbled upon World of Goo , a physics based puzzle / construction game with millions of Goo Balls. With little funds in the DMGC coffers,  price tag of $20 per licence, was a sticking point. However, with World of Goo turning 1, a new offer appeared on thier blog, one we felt we could support it. You can now pay what you think its worth. Hurrah.

So we decided to put Goo into one ICT suite and paid $150, or $5 a licence.  According to “d Boy Games, the birthday sale has been a huge success, and because of that, they are extending their little experiment / celebration until sunday, October 25. So go on, treat your students to some mental dexterity edugaming in the name of Science, well physics.here.

This afternoon our students got their first attack at Goo and it went down a storm. Not all the students were as enthusiastic as I was, but it certainly caught the attention / imagination of the more constructive students in the group. Tomorrow it goes out to the Powder Toy gang!

Still unsure, Yes!  You can get the demo
