Awards, Numbers, and Charity

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

1. World of Goo won in the Best Downloadable Game category at the Game Developer Choice Awards last night!  It was a marvelous end to an incredible year for us.  World of Goo was up against four fantastic indie games: Braid, Castle Crashers, N+, and Pixeljunk Eden.  My hat off to Jonathan, David, everyone at The Behemoth, Raigan, Mare, and the guys at Slick, and Dylan and Q Games.  You guys are amazing.

2. A bunch of people have asked for the slides I used in my IGS session, so here they are. Some of the slides don’t make a lot of sense without my commentary, so if you’re interested in this stuff I recommend you check out the video recording of this session when it becomes available (I was told it would be made freely available online soon).

3. World of Goo is part of the MacHeist 3 bundle, which is promotion running for another 12 days.  In total, 12 Mac apps for $39 and 25% of your purchase price goes to the charity of your choice (Action Against Hunger, AIDS Research Alliance, Alliance for Climate Protection, Direct Relief International, Humane Society International, The Nature Conservancy, Save the Children, Save Darfur, Prevent Cancer Foundation, World Wildlife Fund).
