It’s been a good year and a half since it was first announced that Katamari Damacy & Noby Noby Boy creator Keita Takahashi would be joining Tiny Speck — the company behind upstart web MMO Glitch — and in all that time, I hadn’t really been able to suss out exactly what he’d be contributing to the project, but then the answer came today, and the answer was dinosaur butts.

Detailed today in a blog post for the game, Takahashi has added a new transportation system to the game in the form of six sleeping dinosaurs scattered throughout its massive land, whose mouths can be crawled to travel to “Shim Shiri”, a decidedly Keita-like area that serves as an exchange where you can get sucked into the opposite ends of each of the dinosaurs and be instantly whisked to your next destination.

From what I have gleaned, Glitch players have given the area the colloquial name ‘Asslandia’ — for his part, Takahashi, says Tiny Speck, offered this new mode of travel simply because it would be “more fun and more crazy” than the game’s existing traditional subway.
