You may remember that a few months ago Keita Takahashi had surprised everyone by announcing Nobi Nobi Boy, even if it was thought he'd quit games after Katamari Damacy. We didn't know much about the game except for a few screenshots, but Takahashi was at the GameCity 2007 in Nottingham today with a playable prototype of the game, with just an empty background and no "back story". Still, quite a concept! Many thanks to Jonsend for the video.

only played the first area (after the prologue), and it's more openworld-ish than the other From games. very vertical , and wider play area. (37 minutes ago)
