World of Goo
The basic concept is you use balls of goo to build a path to a faucet to suck them up into. The balls stick together and you can arrange them in a variety of ways. Physics also come into play as you have to balance your build so it doesn't fall over or get you into other hazards. As you play, new types of goo are added that have different abilities. Each level has a goal of the number off goo balls you need to rescue.
In some ways it is oddly reminiscent of Lemmings, but it is definitely a unique game. Anyone who likes puzzle games should definitely check it out - it is definitely one of the best releases in a long time.
A fan community has developed around the game as well, with level editors, new levels, goo ball mods, and other content being developed for the game:
