I took advantage of it and bought it. i payed 3 dollars, but I wished I payed much more. 2D Boy REALLY deserves the cash fo doing something so spectacular.

Gentlemen, I purchased this game back shortly after its release, when Steam had a sale of 75% off. Got it for $5.

Inventive, but I found some of the puzzles frustrating. I still need to go back and finish it. Still, worth every penny of the $5 for which I bought it, at least.

The goo is extremely delicious.

I bought it awhile back off of Steam. I paid $2.25 to get it for Mac and Linux. Its definitely worth at least $10.

Absolutely love this game.

Shame on you if you were one of the penny pinchers. WOG is one of the few indie games (not Valve indie) actually worth more than $20 IMO.

I saw the WoG thing over on Rock Paper Shotgun, and it looked like more than half of the people who bought it actually paid at least a dollar.

There were even 4 people who paid 50!

I got it when it was released for 20, and it was worth every penny for me.

I have this game, and I'm trying to remember if I paid for it.
I think I might buy it again just to make sure.

@Marcus: No matter what, there will be a limit to supply. Energy, time, (packaging for actual boxes). The world doesn't run on limitless energy.

Maybe I'll give this a try. Maybe.

So what did the goos actually get in the end? Or was this it?

World of Goo is made by 2D Boy, a company composed of exactly TWO people. That still didn't stop it from being massively pirated. This isn't an evil corporation, it's two people who want to make a good game and get paid! The piracy surrounding this game is disappointing.

Actually, Word of God on the WoG sale is that the venture was successful, with 29% of all downloads volunteering to pay $5-$10 for the game.

So yes, the "majority" may be for 0.01, but with a healthy minority ponying up decent cash for the game... it still was a success for the devs.

@Eternal: PayPal takes $0.30 PLUS 2.9% of every transaction, under normal circunstances.

That being said, they don't charge transaction fees for *donations* taken from PayPal balance (they do charge for the credit card operation), and the WoG sale was configured as a donation drive.

@Darthcaboose: supply and demand doesn't apply when the supply is infinite, like all software products.

*sigh* Having no credit card sucks. Anyone want to buy this for me? :p I'll send you two pennies, you can keep the change. :D

ZeroCool157, I love you and your reference. well, your reference, at least.

Also, I havent bought this game, but a local store actually has it for 3 dollars, so that's incentive.

They could have chosen to use something else. Paypal is one of the shittier services available.

@Eternal: False. Paypal takes ~$0.3 per transaction.

Bought it a while back for 5$, totally worth 10$

All of the people who paid under 2$, not one penny was actually received by 2dboy, paypal ate it all because of transfer fees and such so you in effect COST them money. Shame on you.

Keep saying it's all about supply and demand. If the producer says "Screw it, we'll give as many copies as you guys want for whatever the price", then you're going to get a lot of people buying it at $0.01!
over 8 years ago
I actually payed 5 bucks for it. They made enough out of the sales, even with it being an old game.

well; we're referring to World of Goo, the awesome one, not Battlefield Macho 5000.

I am a big fan of WoG I would at least pay 5.00 minimum

I payed 19.99 for it last year, it's definitely worth $10 though. If you buy it at your price, don't be a cheap ass, give em at least a buck!

I played the demo and disliked world of goo.
I shan't even pay a single cent for this game.
