i remember a unix based app from years ago (late '90s?) that let you build WOG-like structures and fling them around.  they would deform under stress and break just like in WOG.  the WOG model seems so similar to what I recall - does anybody know what this old program was?  is credit given anywhere in WOG?

I think Newton came up with a physics model similar to the one in WOG.

You mean the simulation? I believe it's called Open Dynamics Engine.

According to Wikipedia, the physics engine is the "Open Dynamics Engine" ( or, an "open source, high performance library for simulating rigid body dynamics."

I also remember something from long ago that WOG reminds me of... but I can't find it.

Besides Tower of Goo and Bridgebuilder (Pontifex to some), I wouldn't know.
