Here is your World of Goo/Braid for 2009: Night Games

Nintendo made a lot of noise yesterday about upcoming releases, so some stuff probably got lost in the shuffle. Admittedly, some of it probably should have…

But Night Games, a WiiWare exclusive title developed by Cave Story developer Nicalis, should not. The title is a nominee for a 2009 Independent Games Festival Seumas McNally Award (say that five times fast), so you know what that means — it’s nothing like, say, Killzone 2

What it does look like is a gorgeous and atmospheric experience that has a similar look and feel to Nicalis’ other titles. That is to say it looks incredible, of course. The gameplay appears to involve using physics to push a glowing sphere throughout the world.

Forget talking about Night Games though; check out the trailer that Nicalis released exclusively to our friends at GoNintendo. It’s pretty stunning, and I think it’s a game you’re going to be hearing a lot about in 2009.
