I've just bought WoG for Linux, and I'm mighty impressed with the quality of the game. It's $20 very well spent, IMHO.

I'm running Slackware 12.1, and the game works flawlessly.

So a big thank you to 2D BOY for bringing this great game to Linux.  :)

I just reached the WoG Corp. cloud ranking system in the Demo and am highly impressed. I am running Ubuntu 8.10 and this game runs great and it's so fun! What an awesome job 2D Boy has done. I can't wait to finish the Demo and buy the full version.

I'd like to chime in with another big Thank You! Awesome of you guys to release a Linux version. I tried the demo and it ran perfect on my Kubuntu 8.10 laptop. I'm definately buying the game on the 25:th when I get payed (poor student at the moment, heh).

Keep up the good work 2D Boy!

I also want to thank for the linux port!
I just bought it even thought i played nearly all levels already on the computer from a friend.
And i just bought it because i can install it on my ubuntu linux!

Thanks for the good work!

Another Linux user thanks you!!!swiftnet02/17/2009 - 14:52

I downloaded the demo on my Asus eeePC 900 running debian's eeepc distro. The game runs smoothly and is quite entertaining. I purchased a full copy for two reasons: one the game is fun and two because you guys/gals/goos believe there is a market for Linux based games.

Thank you guys very much for the effort of porting this game to Linux, this fun native game is really worth its money.

Ditto - running Mint Linux 6.0, and the game runs exactly the same as Windows - to the point that the same tweaks work (like disabling the 2Dboy animation).

Thank you for the linux port! I played the demo and instantly bought it yesterday. Thanks for this!
I runs fine in Ubuntu 8.04 ( AMDx2 4600/nvidia 8600GT )

Another happy Linux camper here. It's rare for a Linux native game to be of such high quality.  I tried the demo and within a couple of minutes I was sold.  My compliments to the coders (and everyone else involved).

I am also not paying anymore for games that are not supporting linux or are full of drm. Today, I bought "world of goo" because there is a linux port. Thank your for supporting the platform... and for creating a nice game ;)

I'm very satisfied with the game myself and think the money was spent good! So far not a single issue except for some sound issues but a simple restart fixes it.

2D games are the best! :D
