Plays through pretty quick (although if you're the sort who likes to see if they can do the level over again but better, there's replay value). But it's one of the best small games I've played in a long while. Pity about piracy--the developers have filed for banktruptcy. So I say support 'em anyway and buy it; it's good stuff.

Actually it was publisher not developers.

Ah, my mistake. I'm a bigger fan of developers than publishers, so while I'm still a bit sad, I feel a lot better.

Buy the game anyway!

Fun, well-made, nice graphics and easy gameplay, plays well on my old laptop, ... It's definitely worth the 16€ (or 20$) spent on it!

The Linux version of World of Goo is finally ready for download! It’s available exclusively from our site, in three different packages depending on what your computer likes. (tar.gz, deb, rpm)
I just tried out the demo, and it was amazing; it really is worth the $20.

No, just a gaming section for fgo, which I don't frequent. In fact, I didn't realize until you pointed it out that that thread wasn't in OTW.

I'd love to support linux gaming, but I already bought it for Wii before I knew there would be a linux port.

the game demo segfaults when launched on my ~amd64 system :( I think it's audio related, since after putting "SDL_AUDIODRIVER" value="dummy" in config.txt the game starts... has anyone else experienced the same problem? I have all the emul-linux-x86 packages installed..
