What are they building towards?

The Goo Balls had come from every direction, from every species, from every island, through a filthy pneumatic pipe system, to build a giant tower into the sky! A giant tower of Goo! But how high can they go?

With the Sign Painter Telescope Operator's giant machine, you can now glimpse into the distance, to see far-off towers built by fellow Goo Fans. Yes, the World of Goo Corporation Tower Leaderboard is here! How high can you get? And will anyone ever beat Kamal?

Two weeks left for billboard contest entries

There are just two weeks left to submit your entries to the billboard contest! Entries must be submitted by Tuesday 30th June at 5am PDT/8am EDT/1pm BST/2pm CEST.

World of Goo Corporation Billboard Contest

The marketing droids at the World of Goo Corporation have been hard at work. Today they launched a billboard design contest to find new signage for the World of Goo Corporation Tower. The winners will receive a signed World of Goo box direct from 2D Boy, and all highly rated entries will make an appearance in the World of Goo Corporation level. Check it out and get drawing!

Use your vote!

After a couple of weeks of embarrassing brokenness, voting is working properly again on the site. Please take a moment to vote on all the addins you've tried. This will help make the site more useful for newcomers and also help us stress-test the voting system for the SECRET CONTEST we're launching next week. Oops, did I mention a secret contest launch? I meant normal day on the intarweb.


Sebastian Wolff has completed transcribing piano sheet music of the World of Goo soundtrack. You can find it on his website, or watch him playing it all on YouTube.

A recent new level worth special mention is XDboy's Infinitive Windows Freezer. Tired of being limited to 300 balls in the World of Goo Corporation? This level lets you build a tower with potentially unlimited black or Ivy balls.

GooTool 0.10.3, recommended for Windows users

GooTool 0.10.3 is now out. I wanted to get this released ASAP, as recent Windows Vista updates are meaning more and more people are getting "unable to start primary instance server" errors. This is fixed in the new GooTool.

Windows users can now adjust the volume of both the music and effects in-game, thanks to a utility by Maks Verver. Simply go to the "options" tab in GooTool and "enable in-game volume controls". Note that this isn't officially supported.

There's also now a .deb Debian-format download, along with a few other improvements and bugfixes. Read on for the full changelog or download it here.

The new GooFans team

This weekend saw the GooFans.com team grow from just xanax and myself. Now spazturtle, 30jon, FluffyWolf2, Bioran23, Pavke and Magical T have joined the team as moderators and authors.

World of Goo Corporation 2.0

Congratulations, you made it through. I hope you enjoyed meeting MOM 2.0. If you want to visit her again, you can find her here.

Unfortunately I spent 2 days writing a bunch of awesome code for this, but didn't leave enough time to make it very funny. So if you have any suggestions, leave a comment below and I'll update Smile

placating addin publishers...

A few more updates today. You can now rate addins; an overall rating (for all addins) and a difficulty rating (just for levels). So get rating and I'll shortly add a "highest rated addins" list and an option to sort by rating and difficulty. I'm also going to add this feature to GooTool so you can rate directly from there.

In other news, Soultaker has created a mod to let you control World of Goo's volume directly within the game - a feature that's been requested by players for ages! I'll hopefully add his feature to GooTool soon, but in the meantime if you have some technical skills check out his forum post. Read on!
