Goo-d, goo-d: World of Goo sticks to 125,000 iPads in first month – on sale for $1

Who can resist tiny blob creatures with saucer plates for eyes and architecture for blood? People without souls, that’s who. Remaining millions of iPad owners, perhaps you’d like to explain yourselves?

“In the first month of sales on the iPad App Store, World of Goo sold 125k copies (thanks to being prominently featured by Apple),” developer 2D Boy wrote on its official blog.

“In comparison, World of Goo’s best 31 day period on WiiWare was 68k copies (thanks to a mass mailing by Nintendo), and on Steam it was 97k copies (thanks to two promotions at discounted prices).”

This, of course, is a very good thing, because World of Goo deserves to be loved and cherished. Also, if you have time and a big ol’ hunger for knowledge, the blog post contains some really interesting info on what goes into creating and marketing a game. If that’s your cup of tea, it’s well worth a read.

The game is also on sale for the low price of $1 compared to the normal asking price of $5.

However, the deal ends today, so get to getting it.
