  • Support Linux Gaming - Buy world of goo for as much as you like !! (for 1 week)

    Hi.

    Now is the time to show your support.

    For 1 week to celebrate their birthday 2dboy are selling world of goo (for all formats) for as much as you would like to spend !

    http://2dboy.com/games.php

    (like radiohead did....)

    I know this game will not be for everyone - for me it reminds me of the lemmings madness .....

    The demo was addictive and am looking forward to playing - I have just bought it (for 8 dollars (about ?5) ... bit skint this month..)

    Although one word of warning - I can't actually get my download at the min - the link reads

    "The Birthday Sale has made our poor little server VERY busy. Try loading this page again in a few minutes, or even a few hours later if you want to be extra nice while we scramble to get more mirrors up. Thank you, from both the 2DBOYS!"

    hopefully i'll have it soon!

    I imagine this game will last for some time also (unlike many modern fps's)

    regards

    EDIT : Download link now working !

    Its actually more awesome than I thought - you can choose multiple versions - i.e you can get a .deb / .rpm and (important for arch users) a .tar.gz file.

    Linux users had the highest average payment. And made up 17% of the downloads, but that may be misleading because I bet there were a lot of people like me who downloaded all three installers.

    Heh... I'd have done it save I'm kind of broke right at the moment- unplanned for legal expenses (that are still ongoing), un-planned for vet bills, and one of my horses going to the US Arabian Nationals have kind of left loose cash kind of absent in my life for a bit yet to come...

    Yes and no...

    Most of the people paying are cheapskates, paying one thin cent to them per the figures given with an average of roughly $2.

    Not a good showing of things. Fortunately, there were roughly 3500 people that paid at least $10 or more.

    I bought this game on the original Linux release (12ε if I remember correctly).

    Highly, highly recommended! It's a highly polished, fun, addictive and slightly surreal physics puzzle game. Plus (spoiler - spoiler - spoiler), you get to explode the Goo corporation! Nice twist there.

    Ok, you're right. But I guess I'm a little bit cheap so I went with the next best thing (tm).

    Well, I'm not _that_ cheap. :P
    It's a great game, albeit a little bit short, so anything less than 10$ would have given me the feeling to rip the developers off.
