Take this as an implied mea-culpa: in my quick-post yesterday I noted Nintendodpad’s news about Experimental Gameplay Project co-founders Kyle Gabler, Kyle Gray, and Allan Blomquist collaborating on a new WiiWare project based on an old EGP experiment, and shorthanded — with the post’s 140 character brevity, and as did Nintendopad — their ‘company’ as 2D Boy.
Though Gabler and Blomquist did work together on the WiiWare version of World of Goo as 2D Boy, this new proposed project is being undertaken without the involvement of 2D Boy co-founder Ron Carmel, and so — as they’ve just clarified in a new Experimental Gameplay post — is not to be confused with a new 2D Boy game.
The game is still, the team says, due to be based on a pre-relaunch EGP prototype (all of which you can find here), but they add (luridly) that “it’s probably best not to speak about it in more detail prematurely in case the game doesn’t evolve as we hope and we need to shoot that baby in the crib.”
And that’s also not to say that work on 2D Boy’s sophomore effort isn’t moving forward, though Gabler says there’s nothing more to say on that yet, as he and Carmel “are shy and afraid to announce prematurely against World of Goo sized expectations, because we might have a Britney sized meltdown.”
