Peter Moore has updated his blog to reveal that he believes a game as simple but as effective as 2D Boy’s World of Goo is something EA Sports could learn a lot from.

“By every admission, I am more of a sports guy and this isn’t my default cup of tea, but there’s a ton to admire in something so simple, yet full of impressive physics that make for an elegant and somewhat addictive experience,” said Moore.

“There’s a lot to learn from the EA alumni who started 2D Boy and built something as creative and unique as World of Goo with such a small team and little money.

“It’s that type of creativity and entrepreneurial spirit that can really drive innovation, and I’d like to think we’re setting the right priorities and taking the right steps to deliver more experiences in this vein from EA Sports,” he adds.

    Here’s a thing, Peter – World Of Goo wouldn’t have sold even half as well if it’d cost more than a tenner. Bear that in mind when you ultimately get around to Boom Blox 2.

    Isn’t it a bit ironic that the heads behind 2D Boy were previously developing / prototyping for EA itself?
