World of Goo Update Time!

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

esrb_rating-e.gifWorld of Goo will be finished THIS SUMMER. :) The precise release date depends on whenever our publishers think is best, offset by mysterious submission processes, humor translation, and floating point rounding rules. But here’s what I do know:

1. We got through ESRB with a rating the whole family can enjoy! Muahahaha.

2. We got a brave new 2D Boy Paul to help look for bugs, and make sure all the Goo tastes just right.

3. Everything is getting translated into 5 languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian, German

4. There were some rumors, so just to confirm: Yes, the Wii version will have multiplayer co-op play in every single level. Additional players can join in or leave at any time. We have not tried (yet) on any child specimens, but I think this will be a very good mode for parents playing with offspring.

5. We submitted an early test submission to Nintendo so they can let us know ahead of time if we’re missing anything, spelling Nintendo wrong, etc.

6. We’ll likely be doing a final round of beta. I’ll post more about beta volunteering on the forum a bit later when the beta builds are ready.
