World of Goo on iPad Releasing Soon

World of Goo on iPad! We’re just about finished, and hope to release the game in the App Store as soon as we get approved and make it through the scary gates. In the meantime, here are some answers to some “frequently” asked questions:

Q. When will World of Goo release on iPad?
A. As soon as we get approved by Apple. We hope before the holiday season.

Q. What’s World of Goo?
A. World of Goo is a game about Goo, originally for Wii and PC/Mac/Linux. It won a bunch of awesome awards, including some “game of the year” honors, and is still one of the highest rated Wii games. More info and video here.

Q. What about iPhone, iTouch, iEtc?
A. Maybe. There’s a lot of iGoo to pour in, and we don’t want to release something if it doesn’t run absolutely buttery smooth.

Q. Will the iPad version be multiplayer like on the Wii?
A. Yes, you can play with 11 fingers on one screen. Which means you can play two handed, with friends, an animal, anything up to eleven fleshy things touching the screen. World of Goo is rated E for Everyone.

Q. Can I wear a Goo Ball on my head while playing GooPad?
A. Yes, visit here for all your head warming needs.

Q. Will there be a World of Goo 2?
A. A second World of Goo is a possibility, and something we would enjoy working on. Working together again on GooPad has reminded us how fun it was to make the original. A second World of Goo will need to feel like a perfect and appropriate continuation of the first game. No Red Bull Can levels or rapping Goo cutscenes, according to our official design doc.

UPDATE (11/24): We just submitted World of Goo to Apple… Waiting For Review!

    Be careful with the name ‘Wogpad’. It’s an ethnic slur in some parts of the world.

    The first part of the name, that is.

    “…doesn’t run absolutely buttery smooth…”

    What about iPhone 4/iPod touch 4G version? They have same processor, twice as RAM as iPad and smaller screen which needs less resources. I don’t see why wouldn’t you make it for iPhone 4.

    THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH! I CAN’T WAIT!! I have been patiently awaiting this on iOS since it was briefly mentioned by you guys about a year ago.

    This game will prove a huge success once again, and this time on the iPad. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

  27. Andrea Says:

    Android too!!!!

    If only I had one of those iphone like computers. That would be swell. :D

  29. Kyle Gabler Says:

    Hey thanks to the readers above for alerting us that “wogpad” is a racial slur in some parts of the world? How do they come up with these things? So let’s not call it that? But I’m glad we had the learning opportunity. What a strange and diverse world filled with surprises. World of Goo, on the other hand, welcomes Goo Balls of every color. Kyle

  32. joff Says:

    have to agree with OzzY

    WTF do all these developers release exclusive ipad games when the iphone 4 is the same tech under the hood. both use the same processor, iphone has more memory and the iphone has a higher resolution screen then the ipad.

    this game will be awesome on the phone 4 and i really hope its on iphone 4 soon

    WOG2!!! Especially if you bring it to iOS, you’ll be friggin millionaires.

  36. LK4O4 Says:

    Please DON’T make World of Goo 2. The original is a beautiful game, and I would much rather see you guys make another wonderful, creative child for us to marvel at and love.

    Also, please update more often. We miss you sometimes.

  37. James Says:

    While Making World Of Goo would be nice for some, it would actually be a let-down for others:
    Good parts is that we have more levels, some nice work and art, and the creative minds of a few great indie developers poured into a great game.
    Bad parts would be if it got old and no body wanted to play it. Wouldn’t it be something If World Of Goo #0605976498756 v.5 complete bonus edition came out that soon? ;)

  39. \Decimae Says:

    What about non-iGoo? A goo android?

  40. Zack Says:

    I must admit after reading some of the above comments I think that I would be just as happy you making another game. Just as long as it’s creative and beautiful as the original was. All I really need is some extra levels and I’m good to go. So in conclusion:


  41. Zack Says:

    Sorry for double post but What I meant by the above post is you could make a new game that is not part of the world of goo series, and that I am happy either way as long as it stays true to your creativeness and professional look that you had in WoG.

  42. Tacomann13 Says:

    wow, so, WoG2 might actually be happening…..
    2DBOY, Im making TM13’s WoG2, its set on the other side of the world..
    If you want to see it, contact me on thanks

    Ive got TONNES of ideas and currently they are becoming real
    Chapter 1 – The Goo Filled Tree
    Chapter 2 – The Other Factory
    Chapter 3 – Sci-Fi City
    Chapter 4 – The Gooey Bridge Over The Crack
    Epilogue – The End

    if ANYONE wants some info about any chapter tell me via my email (see above)


  43. ori Says:

    strange you don’t have it in FAQ, as for the owner of the original PC version will there be anything new? is it just an Ipad port or completely new levels?

  44. dakuten Says:

    Hey not-already-in-3D Boy ;)
    Would you please port WoG to Android too ? We can run great games such as yours too ! (And tablets are coming too !) (Too many too-s in these sentences …)

  45. Pavke Says:

    Me again… Yeah, GooPad and World of Goo 2 both sound cool but maybe cleaning your forum from hundred thousand of spam members would be nice

    I really hope there’s hope for an iPhone release..! :)

  48. Ron Carmel Says:

    everyone who’s been asking for an iphone version… we first need to get the ipad version out, then we’ll have time to look into iphone. the main obstacle is user interface… the iphone screen is smaller and your fingers cover a large percentage of it, which might make the game difficult/annoying to play. if we can find a way to make that a good experience, we’ll release it on iphone, but otherwise we’d rather not. we’re on it though, we will surely try.

    Thanks for the update on a possible iPhone version! Love the game and its soundtrack!

  51. Pavke Says:

    hey Ron

    I might consider your and Kyle fingers are larger then World of Goo players fingers, because players are mostly children! :)

  52. Rowan Says:

    I love WOG! I bought the PC version, and the Mac version (only bought PC version as Mac wasn’t ready yet from memory)

    IPad version is a day one instabuy for me.

    Hey, you really should launch the Mac version in the Mac AppStore – will expose goo to new people. Worth it.

  53. Vince Says:


  54. Paul Says:

    Righteous! I can’t wait, this thing looks awesome as like, well just awesome.

    Too bad my iPad doesn’t exist… but it’s on my mac, so yeah!

    btw, if you have low hard drive space, does it delete the save file, or is that just my computer?

  55. DEFE Says:

    Oh man, World of Goo 2 sounds awesome. I’m filled with excitement.

  56. Eric Says:

    Big fan, cant wait.

  57. James Says:

    Me a third time. :P

    I believe Team Meat also said something about no sequal to Super Meat Boy, for basically the same reasons you said. I like World Of Goo 2, but I wouldn’t want the series to get old. 2 goo, or not 2 goo. That is a very serious question. :/

  58. JW Says:

    With the release of the Mac App Store to reduce piracy, I’m sure 2dBoy will start on creating World of Goo 2! I’m counting down the days for WOG on my iPad. So far 6 left. How do I know this, because I’m a developer and when i release games, it takes about 5-7 business days.

  59. Bonewire Says:

    So excited. Instant iPad buy for me!
    To the other guys saying the iPhone has the same specs: No!
    The iPhone does have a lower res. And even though the processor is also called A4 , it is much slower than the iPad’s A4 processor.
    So there is definetly a difference beetween the iPad and iPhone 4. But the iPhone 4 does have twice as much ram (512 compared to 256 of the iPad)

    Thanks 2D Boy, you made my day. This is the best game evaaaar!

    Cheers Glenn

  60. Yeshua Watson Says:

    So, based on my experience with Apple submissions, we should expect review and approval around Dec 1-2, 2010. As long as it doesn’t crash and handles “Low memory” warnings (and subsequent memory dealloc) gracefully, we can expect our gooey fingers to be building and destroying the mighty corporation soon. I’ve played WoG on a tablet PC and it works wonderfully with pen, so fingers are going to be awesome. BTW, isn’t it funny how the similarities to the WoG corporation and their product unveilings are similar to Apple and iDevices unveiling? Just saying.

  61. ChatoXL Says:

    Yay! My Dad’s Gonna Buy an iPad Soon! I Hope You Make an iPhone Version Soon!

  62. Tacomann13 Says:

    I like the IDEA of WoG2
    If 2DBoy mentioned this earlier than I wouldve changed the name of my mod, ‘TM13’s WoG2’

    sorry Kyle and Ron

    Do want an iPhone 4 version. Pretty please… with Goo on top!

  66. Buttersnack Says:

    I was starting to think you guys weren’t making anything together anymore! Anyway, what price will WoG be for iPad?

  67. Jonas Says:

    I’ve played World Of Goo since the first beta release, I own an iPad, I’ll definitely also buy this.

    Even though It’ll be like the fifth copy I get ! :D
    First release – steam sales – indie bundle – more steamsales ! :P

  68. Madison Says:

    Any word on a release date from Apple yet? With such a premium title submitted they sure are taking their time…. I need WOG on my iPad NOW. :-) Since the first day I had my iPad I’ve been saying ‘I wish WOG would be ported because touch controls would really work well’ and you did and now Apple is slooooooowing it down. Come on Apple: approve and release please. Like now.
