World of Goo Released!

February 13th, 2009 by soultaker

Thanks to the many readers who let us know that 2D Boy has released World of Goo for Linux, the acclaimed puzzle/construction game featuring hundreds of Goo Balls.

The game was previously available for Windows, Mac OS X and Wii, and was very well received (for example, IGN called it Best Puzzle Game for PC as well as Wii Game of the Year 2008).

The full game costs $20, but the first chapter is available for free as a demo, so you may want to check that out first.

    Frickin’ rules!

    Beware the silence on the ‘net as a ton of Linux users fall into the terrible addictive Goo universe.

    And this port does appear to be identical to the Windows version – if anything it is smoother and faster on my Linux box than my wife’s Windows laptop, but then again, my Linux box is packing a GeForce 6800GT which is something of an unfair advantage… :-)

    just tried the demo and it runs freaking smoothly on my openSuse 10.2 box. DLed the RPM, installed, worked like a charm. Way to go.
