[prMac.com] Vancouver, Canada - Dingo Games is taking pre-orders for their soon-to-be-released game Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds. They have also released a new trailer for the game, showcasing the two player cooperative mode. The premise of Tasty Planet is simple. Players control a ball of goo with the ability to eat anything smaller than itself. As the goo eats objects it grows bigger, thereby giving it the ability to eat even larger objects. The goo could grow from the size of an ant to the size of a mountain in a single level.
Players will eat their way through six different time periods: modern, Late Cretaceous (i.e. dinosaurs), Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Feudal Japan, and the distant future. Each time period features a unique set of objects for the player to eat. Mice, cats, Tyrannosaurus Rex, mummies, gladiators, and flying saucers are just a few of the hundreds of objects available for consumption.
Comic strips throughout the game tell the story of the two scientists who accidentally create the grey goo. Made out of nanotechnology, the grey goo has the ability to consume anything smaller than itself. The goo starts traveling through time after it eats the scientists' newly created time machine.
Development is wrapping up and Dingo Games will be releasing the game in the next few weeks. Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds will be available on Windows and Mac.
