World Of Goo Piracy Rate: “82%”

The post yesterday reporting World of Goo's 90% piracy figure drew a surprising response. The P-word regularly generates comments threads that scare our hosts, but this one was odd. It became a discussion about whether one could disprove the 90% figure, and then extrapolating this to reach peculiar conclusions. Some could see this as people claiming there were far fewer stab wounds than first predicted…

World Of Goo(d News): Euro Release Imminent

Updated below.Good news, Euro-people. World of Goo is officially reaching our shores this December. Now, obviously you're sensible enough to have bought the game directly from the 2D BOY site, so haven't had to wait. But you might know someone silly enough to have not done that for some stupid reason, and now you can let them know the news.

Oh Ye-Of-Little-Faith Special: World of Goo Demo

This is mainly of use to the cynics (and the evangelists, of course). Anyone who's even slightly vulnerable to purple-prose will have already worked out how to buy it and done exactly that. If you haven't - well, what are you waiting for? A demo? Well, wait no more. It's currently spreading across the net, but let's point at Filefront for this 33Mb slice of…

World Of Goold

It was only the other day that I was loudly lamenting the lack of more World Of Goo. What can be taking him so long? How could he tease us with that first chapter, and then no more for such a long time? Just how long ago did we place our pre-orders again? But phewie to the extremes, 2D Boy has declared the game has…

The results are in, with the winners announced for the 2008 IGF Awards.The standard of entries this year was just stunning, and when we've tried to pick out our favourite of the top prize entries, it's been impossible. For us it came down to three. Audiosurf has taken over our lunchtimes (and mornings and afternoons and evenings) this week, and is obviously a triumphant achievement.…

World of Goo(d)

I wasn't expecting my preview of IGF-Grand-Finalist nominee World of Goo to go up yet, but it has. Which is lucky, as I no longer have to bite my lip about getting really excited about it here. In it, I start like this...Having played through the preview code of this, the first twenty percent of the full game, I found myself desperately looking around for…
