Indie game developer Edmund McMillen goes full circle, so to speak, as Bigshot Toyworks releases a couple of plush toys based on his award-winning PC game Gish, starring a loveable ball of tar out to save his girlfriend.

With a new Gish game on the horizon and a cameo by the grinning black ball in Super Meat Boy for WiiWare, it's high time we got our own version of the loveable slimeball to cuddle secretly before we go to sleep. Gish comes in two sizes, 4 inches and 8 inches, which will run you $8 and $16 respectively at the Bigshot Toyworks website.
