Interesting figures have emerged regarding the Linux release of World of Goo. 2D Boy have revealed that more copies were sold on their website on the Linux release day than any other day. They beat the previous record by 40%
Those are some amazing figures, I think this just goes to show that the Mac and Linux platforms are being very much ignored by many games companies and the mainstream gaming press. For a small independent company like 2D Boy these figures are really going to make a big difference to their financial outlook.
As a brief aside, it was on Valentine’s Day last year the the first Chapter of World of Goo was released to pre-orders, what a year it has been for Ron and Kyle.
