The Wonderful End of the World (PC)
Where to get it: Steam or dejobaan.com
Developer: Dejobaan Games
Price: $9.95

Like a poor mans Katamari The Wonderful End of the World is full of crazy characters, catchy music and lots and LOTS of random crap for you to collect.

Find out why you should be playing this fun indie game after the break!

This game is about collecting things pure and simple. Start with the small stuff and work your way up. The world is coming to an end and you're here to collect everything.
When I say collect everything I mean EVERYTHING. The first level starts off a little Katamari like and the developer seems to know this. When you start in the same location as in the first Katamari game after this first level however the level variety changes greatly. From the 2d creations to being put inside a retro arcade machine and having to collect everything from Pacman and Pong to Centipede the level design is simply wonderful.

The one thing I could fault the game for is the collision detection when you hit an object you can't pick up yet. From my experience I seemed to bounce off the object without it even touching me but since you grow in size pretty fast you don't have a lot of these moments. The other fault is still collision detection as often times I'll find myself going through objects that won't even register as being touched.

Long story short it's a great Indy game with higher production values than most. It's obvious the creators have put a lot of time and effort into making it and it should definitely not be over looked.
