Noby Noby Boy Trophies
Noby Noby Boy is a peculiar experiment in emergent gameplay through a limited rule-set. Mimicking the structure found in Conway’s Game of Life, Noby Noby Boy challenges players with nothing more than the existence of random objects and living creatures, smattered across a pre-ordained landscape.
In this article, we will look at the steps required for the 12 separate Noby Noby Boy trophies that can be earned. As well as providing this listing, the article will try and read as a Noby Noby guide, with some further input and notes on the game and its trophies when necessary. The game consists of one golden trophy, four silver and 7 bronze, each with a playful method for unlocking.
Firstly, this article will look at the bronze Noby Noby Boy trophies and then continue up the hierarchy until we reach the zenith of the collectible’s found in the game.
