Demo of World of Goo Available


There seemed to be a lot of demand for a demo version, so we made one! (download link) This demo contains the entire Chapter 1. More download locations are here. [update: jason over at fileplanet just informed us that they started serving up the demo as well and are also promoting it on their front page! thanks jason!]

Meanwhile, according to metacritic, we (theoretically) have a 97.5 if you average our only two scores that actually seemed to be counted. If you see any reviews online, post them here in the comments. We’re filled with glee over how the game been received so far, thanks to everyone who has written about us!

Update: If you are in a region of the world where you cannot get World of Goo for some reason, the version here is 100% region free.

Update2: World of Goo fan fiction, oh no! (thanks Kieron)

worldofsmiles.jpgUpdate3: 2D BOY has just received documented proof that World of Goo’s age rating (E for Everyone) is accurate.  This is Jack, he’s 4 years old, and he’s already made it to chapter 2!  Way to go Jack! (and thanks for sending the photo, Steve)

    My 3-year-old is also having a great time with it (mostly the freeform tower building part). She loves the goos and often wonders how they talk.

    […] Ok you got me, this is more of an honorable mention as its another example (one of too few sadly) of Indie games crossing over to the mainstream. Other examples in recent memory such as Darwinia and Alien Hominid made the leap succesfully, and now World of Goo has finally made the leap from being a student project, to a commercial product, and its a great simple game, all about building.. with goo! its a fairly straightforward and highly addictive physics based affair, that you can grab a demo of right here […]
