Noby Noby Player Numbers Dropping, GIRL May Never Reach Mars

There's a brilliant meta-game feature in Noby Noby Boy, which compiles every player's "progress" in the game and uses it to propel a single "GIRL" across the solar system. But her progress is danger.

See, it relies on lots of players playing lots of Noby Noby Boy for those cumulative figures to get her anywhere. And while first-week sales saw the player base reach around 60,000, which got her from Earth to the moon in only four days, there's now only around 1000-2000 people playing the game.

Which means that, at the current rate, it'll take her over 2000 days just to reach Mars. We could extrapolate that and work out how long it'd take her to reach, say, Uranus, but that would be both childish and depressing.

If creator Keita Takahashi built this feature into the game to guilt us into playing it more, well... congratulations, Keita, you sick bastard, it's working.

    They should have released it on 360 as well as PS3, if they had done that and brought the fanboy fight into it I'm sure atleast one GIRL would be beyond the edge of our solar system

    Gotta love those Uranus jokes..

    Anyway, I sort of knew this was
    going to happen the first time I set eyes on this game.
    I am pretty sure the other 58.000 ppl did too.

    This is a weird game, and for that reason alone people will either love it or hate it. I downloaded it and I kinda wish I hadn't. I messed around with it for a little while and it just got boring very quickly. I only started playing again to get all the trophies (I looked up a guide on the net so I don't have to spend too much time playing it). I've just got a few trophies to go and that's it for me I have absolutely no desire to play this game.

    Don't get me wrong I'm not against new and different ideas for games, I downloaded Flower and loved it. This however I just can't get into.

    Just thought of another reason why I don't want to play this game.

    A girl reaching Uranus is not my idea of fun.

    Sorry, I had to do it. If I can't have any fun playing the game, I'm sure as hell gonna have some fun making jokes about it.
