Happy Birthday World of Goo!

World of Goo is two years old today. My, how time flies. Coincidentally, and almost just in time, we have a surprise…

Back in march we were approached by David Lien, who came up with this crazy idea of making World of Goo beanie hats as a way of starting a company, doing something game related, and… yes… joining the family business.  See, David’s family owns a hat manufacturing and exporting business in Taiwan. Feel the love?

Since David approached us with sketches, we’ve seen him come up with design drawings, sorting out colors, materials, and styling with the factory, and finally getting the first prototypes in the mail. With the help, advice, and support of friends and family, the beanies finally went into production on September 19th and are expected to start shipping in late November.

Want one?  David is taking pre-orders here. You can buy the beanie on its own, or add $5 and get a copy of World of Goo you can keep for yourself or give as a gift.

    hey nice goo hats, very creative, have you thought about taking you’re Goo Hat invention to the “Dragons Den” and try to bring these hats to the mass market and major store’s shelves?

  25. World Of Goo: The Hat | Rock, Paper, Shotgun Says:

    […] all that. He plans to create an indie merchandising business, and as such has already snagged the blessings of the goodly gentlemen of 2D Boy to make these semi-official World of Goo hats. […]
