There we go. That oughta clear everything up!
There we go. That oughta clear everything up!
Noby Noby Boy continued to confound the hell out of me when, earlier today, BOY stretched out enough to allow GIRL to make her trek from the Earth to the Moon, just four days after the game's US release. Do not take that last sentence to mean that I am in the middle of having a stroke. This is just how Noby Noby Boy rolls. If you've neither experienced Noby Noby Boy for yourself, nor watched our anti-informative quick look video, allow me to clarify. While Noby Noby Boy claims to have no overt objectives, there is a collective meta-game that underlies all of the action. As players around the globe stretch out their BOYs, they all contribute to the length of GIRL. As GIRL stretches out across the galaxy and reaches new heavenly bodies, new levels in the game are unlocked.

Hmm. Reading back over that clarification, it's probably not much clearer. Think of it like a shared, virtual Stretch Armstrong where, the more everyone pulls on his limbs, the...OK, that analogy's not really working out either. I guess, just...there's a new level for Noby Noby Boy available. It's The Moon. There are people and dogs wearing spacesuits, there are penguins, there are fish, there are ambulatory crescent moons. Perhaps most exasperatingly, there are MOTHER-EFFING MOONS ROLLING AROUND ON THE MOON.

Next stop is Mars. I don't know that I'll still be able to write cogent sentences by then.

Ryan, I regret to inform you that GIRL has not made it to the Moon.  It's actually a conspiracy by NASA and the government in order to beat the Russians in the Cold War.


You can go back to writing cogent sentences again.  Thank you.

Signed,
BOY

I just bought this game after having a Killzone 2 session and playing SFIV and Lost & Damned all night yesterday and I think this thing just broke my brain.

From a 1UP preview:

"They're planning a simultaneous worldwide release for early 2009, with the estimate that it will take the group of PSN players 1-2 weeks to stretch GIRL enough to reach The Moon."

Good thing they have more planets lined up.

That's actually a pretty cool feature. But my question is, once Girl makes to the Sun will we have to turn all the way around and head back to the other planets?

Noby Noby Boy is the biggest mindf*^k I've ever experienced in gaming, and I don't even own a PS3.

So Ryan... what you're saying is that, Noby Noby Boy is an early GOTY contender? LOLOLOLZ!

I love the whole meta-game aspect of this, even if I was utterly baffled when the game proclaimed "GIRL HAS REACHED THE MOON!"

If they expected it to take 1-2 weeks, they'd better have a lot more planets lined up. This may go faster than they had anticipated. :)

Does Soulja Boy have a PS3?  He may be the only one that can decipher the meaning of this game.

I agree.  I mean, we've already seen a game for those who like to drink and get drunk or smoke weed and get high...but what does Noby Noby Boy bring to the table that is new to that formula?

I think the guy who created this game was on mushrooms or something.  I haven't watched the quick look yet but it sounds like I need to so I can lose my mind with everyone else.

Oh man, I want this game so bad, and for that I need a PS3. I could care less about MGS4 and Killzone 2 right now, I want a PS3 for Noby Noby Boy.

I also showed that quick look to a friend that doesn't really follow games news, and now she also thinks Jeff's awesome. PACMAN-PACMAN!

so does a late downloader start with access to everything the community has opened already? Hmm, odd indeed.

Yep, seems that way. Levels are unlocked as a community, so the more people play the faster new worlds become available. Late downloaders will get access to all the worlds that have been unlocked, but if you buy it sooner you can help unlock them sooner. :)

If I'm understanding this correctly, then NobyNobyBoy could be the most innovative game to be released in a while.Well, that is, if the gameplay itself looked appealing in the slightest. But the premise, that's just genius.
