2D Boy, developer of the critically acclaimed glob-tastic puzzle/construction game World of Goo, have revealed that it is currently working on bringing the game to the iPhone, CasualGaming.biz reports. In a brief statement, one of the developers, Kyle Gabler, said of the upcoming title, “It’s not done and we don’t have a release date yet. We have it running well on the iPhone 3GS, and with a little luck we hope to get it running smoothly on the 3G as well. Hopefully more news on this soon."
Also, to celebrate World of Goo’s one-year anniversary, 2D Boy is offering gamers the chance to pick up the dev’s breakout title for as little or as much as they want to pay for it. As Gabler explains, “One cent, a million dollars, the usual 20, or any creative number they let you type into the text field.”
It’s the same thing Radiohead did back in 2007 with its album In Rainbows, but I can’t recall another instance in the gaming world where such an approach was taken. Of course, the deal won’t last forever; it’s only good until October 19th. So if you feel like finding out how much you value creative and unique gaming, just head over to 2D Boy’s site. I’m sure you will do the right thing. The WiiWare version of the game still costs $14.99 (1500 Wii Points), in case you need a jumping off point.
Do you know of any other games that were offered on a pay-what-you-want scale?
