Blue's News mentioned a 32 MB playable demo version of World of Goo (not Warcraft) for Windows/PC (also available for Nintedo's WiiWare).

This game is an addicting puzzle type that combines Worms (2D versions and without weapons and explosions), Lemmings, Jenga/Jumbling Tower, etc. Its official description says: "A physics based puzzle/construction game. The millions of Goo Balls who live in the beautiful World of Goo don't know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious." Wikipedia's description says: "... The game is built around the idea of creating large structures using balls of goo... The game is divided into five chapters, each containing several levels. Each level has its own graphical and musical theme, giving it unique atmosphere. There is also a bonus meta-game called World of Goo Corporation, whose objective is to build the highest tower using goo balls which the player collected through the course of the game. Players from all over the world can compete, as the height of the tower and number of goo balls used are being constantly uploaded to the 2D Boy server. The main objective of the game is to get a requisite number of goo balls to the pipe representing the exit. In order to do so, the player must use their various abilities to build bridges, towers and other structures to overcome gravity and various terrain difficulties such as chasms, hills, spikes or cliffs. Extra Goos recovered in the pipe are pumped through to the World of Goo Corporation, a sandbox area where the objective is to build a tower taller than those of other players of the game, whose towers are represented by respectively named clouds floating at altitudes corresponding to their height..."

Ant decided to check out the game after all the hype. Boy, was he addicted to it for two hours (with breaks). And now he has a headache and is stuck on one of the end of the chapter levels/maps titled "Tower of Goo". :D The music/soundtracks are awesome. There is plenty of humor and there's even cuteness (eyes and audios). He won't be getting the full game due to lack of time and still need to play his OTHER games from like last year. :P
