2D Boy’s puzzler World of Goo has been released on the Android Market, and from now until December 5, the game is 40% off and will only run you $2.99. 2D Boys has said the game will run on the majority of devices running Android 2.2 or newer; however, since there are devices out there of “varying capabilities”, it recommends users try the demo first.

World of Goo developer 2D Boy’s next game will be a WiiWare title born out of its Experimental Gameplay Project, it has emerged this morning.
“The three of us are cooking up a new game for WiiWare, currently ‘in the works’,” Kyle Gabler told Nintendodpad.
“We haven’t mentioned anything about it to anyone, but here’s a clue – the new game from the three of us is based on one of the experimental games from our past.”
The other two – as Eurogamer points out – are Kyle “Henry Hatsworth” Gray and World of Goo programmer Allan Blomquist.
More details on The Experimental Gameplay Project can be found through the titular link.

Mastertronic Group has launched a new label for indie titles called Great Indie Games and the first game to make the cut is World of Goo, slated for a July release.
Great Indie Games will bring independent games to retail to gain a wider audience than just through digital distribution, where most indie titles are offered.
“We are on the look out for more indie developed games, so any developers who want their game sold at retail should get in touch with us,” said Mastertronic’s managing director Andy Payne.
“With the many and varied PC games offerings out there, casual or otherwise, there is a place for great games that have been produced on a lower budget than normal by small development teams.”
Other games are to be announced at a later date.

The WiiWare version of World of Goo is headed to Japan.
Soon, goo balls regurgitated by beastly frogs will be used to build bridges in the East as well. Praise be.
Nintendo will be the distributor and Japanese gamers can expect it sometime this spring.

The Linux version of World of Goo has been a rollicking success for 2D Boy, with the launch seeing over 40 percent more games sold via the company’s website in one day than ever before.
It’s only been 2 days since the release of the Linux version and it already accounts for 4.6% of the full downloads from our website. Our thanks to everyone who’s playing the game on Linux and spreading the word. Here are a couple of nifty stats:
- About 12% of Linux downloads are of the .rpm package, 30% are of the .tar.gz package, and 57% are of the .deb package.
- More copies of the game were sold via our website on the day the Linux version released than any other day. This day beat the previous record by 40%. There is a market for Linux games after all
Go Linux, etc. More through there. Thanks, The Reticule.

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.

Peter Moore has updated his blog to reveal that he believes a game as simple but as effective as 2D Boy’s World of Goo is something EA Sports could learn a lot from.
“By every admission, I am more of a sports guy and this isn’t my default cup of tea, but there’s a ton to admire in something so simple, yet full of impressive physics that make for an elegant and somewhat addictive experience,” said Moore.
“There’s a lot to learn from the EA alumni who started 2D Boy and built something as creative and unique as World of Goo with such a small team and little money.
“It’s that type of creativity and entrepreneurial spirit that can really drive innovation, and I’d like to think we’re setting the right priorities and taking the right steps to deliver more experiences in this vein from EA Sports,” he adds.

World of Goo designer Ron Carmel has claimed in this RPS thread that World of Goo has a 90 percent piracy rate.
Carmel claims he’s seen torrent sites with “500 seeders and 300 leechers” and has received emails from people bought the game after downloading it, although that number makes upa “very small percentage.”
Luckily, he said, “We’re doing ok, though. We’re getting good sales through WiiWare, Steam, and our website. Not going bankrupt just yet!”
Phew. Thanks Joystiq.

Plenty of detail through there. Thanks, Tonka!
