I own several different copies of World of Goo, I was fortunate enough to get a review copy from 2D Boy, I bought it directly on release, I bought a copy on Steam, I have a copy on my Steam press account and I also bought it on iOS for my iPod Touch. Soon, I will be buying it again on Android as 2D Boy have confirmed the Android release is coming soon. It will be available for both Android tablets and phones, and I can’t wait to play one of the most charming games ever once again. Goo!
World of Goo sits fondly in my mind as one of the best indie games, nay, one of the best games I have ever played. Developers Ron Carmel and Kyle Gabler deserve applause for putting so much character in those little balls of Goo. With the recent release of the iPad and iPod/iPhone versions of the title I thought it was the perfect chance to catch up with Ron on how things are going for 2D Boy and World of Goo. …
With certain new games set for release at ever higher prices, while others (such as Men of War) have a distinctly lower price point and regular sales, it seems time (as ever, I suppose though) to think about what games should cost. Rather than blathering on in an opinionated fashion, I did a little survey, firing off a short list of questions to a section of The Reticule’s eminent friends in development to see what they thought about it. …
After a long wait all you European World of Goo fans can now buy the game. It is available right now on Steam and amazon.de as well as a host of retail outlets. The game is retailing for €20 and Ron Carmel has said that they are looking at getting the game on the UK amazon site as well.

Good news for all the European fans of World of Goo, 2D Boy have managed to change some things with their Euro publisher, RTL Games. As such the game will be coming to Wii Ware and the PC in both retail and digital formats sometime towards the end of December.
The PC version of the game will cost €19.99 at retail and it will also be coming back onto Steam in Europe.
There is some bad news however, as of right now that mysterious “6th Chapter” will not be included in the European retail release as was originally planned. The boys want to keep all versions of the game the same wherever possible.
When I asked Kyle further about this “6th Chapter” he revealed the following:
It’s possible it will never come out. It’s also possible that it will come out as an expansion for all versions of the game, at the same time, available to all regions. The thing I feel great about, though, is that we can finally say that there is one and only one definitive version of World of Goo, available to everyone.
