World of Goo creator Ron Carmel has discussed the creation of his game, the early days of his development career, his time spent at EA Pogo, and weighs up working within a large publisher against being an independent coder. No prizes for guessing which he prefers.

Four Humble Bundle favourites – Anomaly: Warzone Earth, EDGE, Osmos and World of Goo – have been added in as bonus content in the latest indie package. If you’ve already purchased the latest Humble Bundle, the extra games are automatically added to your account for download – and if you haven’t, you can get on that here. As ever, proceeds go to indie developers and charitable causes at your discretion, you pay what you want, and all games are cross-platform and DRM free – even on your Android device.

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. OpenFeint has also been integrated into the game for those who like to post achievements. Thanks, IndieGames.

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.
