Hmmm, just found this page by accident, and it seems World of Goo picked up 4 awards, including best puzzle/misc game, and best soundtrack (and Best Game No-one Has Played!)

Still, a great outcome - might want to use this in some promotional way?!

hey, i'm an active member of that site lol. a lot of people hate on it a lot claiming it's not accurate and they pull their numbers out of their ass, ect, but they don't.

anyway, i was running my mini 'buy world of goo nows' crusade their for a little bit.

and for anyone interested in taking a look, a user has been doing a very rough vc/wiiware games sales chart based on nintendo channel usage data. [http://news.vgchartz.com/news.php?id=3143] the chart on this one says by about the end of february, world of goo had sold about 129 thousand copies on the us wii shop channel, and 48 thousand copies in europe. don't know how accurate that is [i'm sure ron would be a little stingy on sharing sales numbers, but maybe they might enjoy looking at this some and seeing how close they actually are to the truth.]

just throwing it out for anyone who's bored, and loves numbers.
