Today saw the first new look in over a year at Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi's new PS3 downloadable game Noby Noby Boy. It's a game so impenetrable even its own website doesn't try to explain it, so I've taken some extra time at the end of the day to try and connect the dots between what little we know about the game now to a then-seemingly wildly rambling speech Takahashi gave a year ago. Elsewhere today we saw that Daniel Pemberton's Little Big Music album we got an exclusive preview of last week has now gone on sale, read that Myst MMO URU was going open source and fan-created, that Half-Life themed Peggle Extreme was being offered for free, and that gorgeous PS3 art/platformer PixelJunk Eden was about to get a bit mercifully easier. We also downloaded a demo of the unapologetically psychotropic PC strategy/shooter Space Giraffe, listened to a new song created with Toshio Iwai's musical DS software Electroplankton, reflected on the hyper-targeted demographic of last night's brütal Spike TV Video Game Awards, and, charmingly, saw homebrew DS software made solely to use as a marriage proposal.
Just trying to live a wild, pure, simple life.
