World of Goo Soundtrack Now Available

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

Thanks to everyone who wrote in asking about a soundtrack! I probably never would have put this together otherwise. I spent this weekend pulling together all the audio, reconstructing some of the older songs, and “remastering” them all like they do to Snow White DVD’s. The final soundtrack is about 49 minutes long, and all free here. (another mirror is here) Hope you like it! Kyle

Update: Wow, that killed the server fast. Would anybody be able to mirror this file? I’ll try to set up a mirror or two too. If you have one, post a link below in the comments!

Update 2: I just created a temporary mirror here, and provided 4 more download locations. If anyone knows how to create a torrent, please go ahead and send me the link and I’ll post it!

Update 3: The multi-talented Sebastian Wolff has created sheet music for some of the tracks. More info on the forum topic.

Game-in-7-days: Robot and the Cities that Built Him

Friday, January 11th, 2008

This is a 7-day-prototype I made a while ago (my first using AS3). I didn’t have time to finish it, but thought I’d post it anyway so it doesn’t rot to death in a pile of old hard drives. There are only 2 robots, so don’t play forever looking for the last 4!

lovebot.jpgGame Design: I think this is the only game ever created while listening to Bette Midler’s version of “From a Distance” on loop for a week. It’s also one of my only games involving genocide. What is man? What is machine? What does it mean to be human? Perhaps from a distance we’re not so different from giant kill bots? Can a computer make you cry? Yes, if it has lasers.

To play: Use the mouse. Blast stuff with lasers, collect hearts, buy more stuff for better blastage. But watch out! Humans blast back after a while. click to play
