" [Editor's Note: The video portion of our review was recorded before Noby Noby Boy unlocked The Moon, which is why we say "you'll get to The Moon." We are now working towards getting o..."
"When artistically-inclined creators set out to do something different in the videogame "space" - like thatgamecompany's Flower, to take a recent and excellent example - they often start with the subject matter, the atmosphere, the style. They might create something that has the bones of a game, but the looks of a painting and the heart of a song - something that creates a different mood in the player. Noby Noby Boy, released today for PS3 on the PlayStation Network, isn't like those other experiments. It's deeper, wilder, more unhinged, more radical - and more brilliant. It disposes with even the bones of gaming, reducing it down to its very core - the simple notion of play - and then elevating that to an art form. It doesn't just change your mood; it changes your whole frame of mind. Noby Noby, or nobinobi, is a Japanese term meaning to stretch, to relax, to be yourself, to take your time, to be late. In Noby Noby Boy, you control BOY, a cheerful little quadruped whose body can stretch to almost infinite length. You control his front and rear end independently, one with each analogue stick. Pull them away from each other and he stretches like rubber, straining for a second, before popping out into a rainbow-striped, floppy snake. Keep pulling and he keeps stretching, and growing, and stretching, and growing. And growing. And growing some more."
"In all, this was a very interesting technical demo, but at $4.99 it is also a pretty expensive one. Considering that most tech demos are free and the only other paid tech demo on the PSN is Linger in the Shadows, which was already expensive at $2.99. It was fun to see the interesting physics accomplished on the PS3, and for what it is, it’s very polished, but it’s still a tech demo in the end, and five bucks is a bit too much to ask for something like that."
