World of Goo publisher Brighter Minds Media has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The firm made the move on January 28. Unlike Chapter 7, which means the company’s to be liquidated, Chapter 11 is a step to allow the firm involved to remain in control of its assets while it reorganizes.

Brighter Minds publishes a range of family-friendly software as well as the gooey indie darling.
