Now playing is a series talking about games currently getting playtime at Press to Jump Towers. It can be anything from an epic high definition role-playing game, to a freeware download, all the way to a classic we’re playing through again.

Now, a new contender has appeared: agar.io, A massively multiplayer online game where you play a blob that hoovers up dots to get bigger and avoid the other players’ dots.

Eat cells smaller than you and don’t get eaten by the bigger ones, as an MMO
