Hey kids! This'll be our little secret.  



Is there a free demo I can get dirty with?

Yes!  You can get the demo here.  There's also a demo available on Steam.

I purchased the game on your website but haven't gotten a download link.  Where's my goo?

Several things could have happened....

  • Sometimes the confirmation email ends up in your  spam folder. Check and see if it's there.  You can also have the download link re-sent to you by entering your email address here
  • If you paid through paypal with an e-check, those take a few days to clear and you'll get the download link as soon as paypal processes the payment (log in to your paypal account and see what payment method you used)
  • Mysterious cosmic rays might have affected your payment.  If your payment has cleared and you checked your spam folder and still don't have your goo, send us an email and we'll take care of you

I can't decide which version to get, PC or WiiWare, which is better?

They're both better!  The WiiWare supports up to 4 players in a "pick up 'n' play" co-op mode.  The PC version has online leaderboards for each individual level.  Other than that, they're the same.

I bought the game on your website, but I want to activate it on Steam, is that possible?

If you bought the game before the release date, yes, you can activate the game on Steam with the magic key we sent you via email. From now on, if you want to get the Steam version, simply buy the game through Steam.

I installed the game on one of my computers and I want to transfer my saved game to another computer, is that possible?

Yes!  All you need to do is copy the saved game file which is named pers2.dat.  On Windows XP, it lives in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\2DBoy\WorldOfGoo. On Vista the file is located in C:\ProgramData\2DBoy\WorldOfGoo.  Copy it from one computer into the appropriate location on the other computer and voila!

I couldn't find the answer to my question here, what now?

Many questions regarding the game, gameplay, and some technical issues can be found on our forum.  Try searching there.  If you can't find the answer, please contact us and we'd be happy to help you.

What systems does World of Goo run on, and what are the system requirements?

The game is currently available on WiiWare and for Windows (XP/Vista) and Mac.  To play it on Windows, you basically need a PC that's 5 years old or newer (1GHz or faster CPU, 512MB of RAM, 100MB of disk space, a 3D graphics card, DirectX 9.0c). On Mac, you need OSX 10.4 or later, with either Intel cpu or PPC G4 or better.

Is 2D Boy a real boy?

No, he's just the name of our studio. He doesn't know he's not real, so don't tell him. We don't want 2D tears.

Who are you, 2D Boy?

2D Boy is an indie game studio recently founded in San Francisco.

Is 2D Boy a game?

2D Boy is not a game. Just the name and mascot of our little indie studio. The games we are working on are here.

Does 2D Boy like 2D Boys or 2D Girls?

2D Boy isn't a real boy (see above). Please no fraternizing with 2D Boy, he exists in only two dimensions, which means he has zero thickness, which clearly means he is very sharp. If you fall in love with 2D Boy, you will only get hurt.

Maybe we can just hug?

Yes! We have 2D Boy shirts that we made, really just for us, but you can get some too if you are feeling a little 2D. Option 1 and Option 2. Or, here are some hi-res logos for you to do whatever with.

2D Boy, I want to tell/ask you something!

We want to hear! Try this email thing.
