Hey guys, Almost 2 years im not play wog or check this site is this site still active and where are you people ?
World of Goo Custom Level for Android | Preview | Tutorial | Tools |
In case you're wondering, the site's fading away slowly. New addins and new fourm topics are somewhat rare, and spam's pretty much gone.
As for the users, more seem to leave then join. That is, the actual people. Some users do nothing.
I give critique to recent levels.
World of Goo 1/2 Chapter 2 is finally here!
Dying forms are sad
Also, you're not spam, right? If not, welcome to goofans!
I'm not spam. I just thought of world of goo that I used to play on the Wii a long time ago. I looked it up to see what it cost to get it on PC and ended up here. I have a morbid fascination with old forms and saw your post. I decided I had to reply so I made an account. Who owns this website? Someone somewhere is still paying for serverspace or stil running an old server in their basement somewhere.
Thank you for welcoming me. It's a shame you seem to be the last one here. Since 2011, that's a long time ago.
It makes me sad to think the places I post now might be like this six years from now.
I'm going to see if I can find out who runs this place.
What I find to be one of the saddest things is that it's not even properly possible to submit new records to leaderboards since they're defunct, and it's not possible to register GooTool on the site for the purpose of uploading profiles anymore...
The way that the community around this game developed somewhat doomed this game on the records front as well - level time improvements are only measured down to a second, gooballs and moves are both discrete and finite, and nobody does, say, speedruns of the whole game, which is something I might do if anybody else had interest.
It's been almost a decade now since the game came out though, and not every indie game gets the chance to have had a community around it active for so long, so in someways it's fortunate things lasted as long as they did. But I would certainly be very happy to see some new life breathed into this old community.
Speaking of which, I found a trick a while back (no idea how long ago) and I was going to make a level requiring it (but not obviously so); however I don't think that I'm going to have time to finish such a project in the near future (and I've held on to the trick long enough already), so I'll try and post a video and explanation tonight when I have access to my desktop computer.

There are still active Goofans here, and I am one of the only active moderators here, still keeping this site alive by publishing levels that Goofans submit. Me and a few other Goofans are currently working on a WOG Fan Expansion project, in hopes of somewhat bringing the community back to life

In case you were wondering as to why I'm here since 2011, I joined young, so as of now, I'm not caught up in college/university/jobs. It's a nice freedom.
Anyway, It's nice seeing new users. It's what really keeps the site alive, because if there weren't any new users, the pre-existing ones would just die off. Fresh levels are also awesome. The recent levels section is a little empty nowadays.
If you're wondering who made this site, take a look at this: http://goofans.com/user/davidc
