For Mac OS X
Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

Roll, jump, and slime your GooBall through dozens of fanciful worlds of wonder as you control the cutest little alien around, the Goober. Being trapped in a gooey ball of protoplasm has never been this fun!

Be careful not to "fall out" over the edge of the world, pick up jewels along the way for extra lives, and have a blast as you roll and jump around like a wrecking ball in a china shop. Use the GooBall's "sticky" mode to slime up walls to reach otherwise inaccessible areas and goodies, or use it as an emergency brake when you start rolling too fast!

GooBall was developed by Over The Edge Entertainment and published by Ambrosia Software. Although the game did not sell as well as the developers had hoped, the developers found that the tools they had built in the process of making the game were useful, and turned the tools into their own product. That toolset is now known as Unity.

GooBall was the origin of Unity? I'm shocked not to have known that. It would definitely be a good idea to start archiving some of the very old versions of Unity!

Thanks for finding and uploading GooBall, Sfiera!

Oh, we should probably add old versions of Unity here too! Some (not all) pre-3.4 versions can be found at: http://download.unity3d.com/download_unity/unity-X.Y.Z.dmg by substituting the version number for XYZ, for example 1.6.0. I don't have an OSX machine to verify them, and I'm not sure of the older licensing scheme, but perhaps someone who is interested can check them out and make a page?
