World of Goo is a multiple award winning physics based puzzle / construction game made entirely by two guys. Drag and drop living, squirming, talking, globs of goo to build structures, bridges, cannonballs, zeppelins, and giant tongues. The millions of Goo Balls that live in the beautiful World of Goo are curious to explore - but they don't know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious.

Selected Test Results

What works

  • All aspects of gameplay
    • Camera panning (including mouse-wheel)
    • Moving Goo around
    • Interacting with signs and buttons, menus, etc.
    • Selecting stages, chapters, etc.
  • Fullscreen and Windowed (Alt-Enter or add '-windowed' to launch options)
    • Resolution however, must be changed via editing Steam/steamapps/common/World\ of\ Goo/properties/config.txt in your wineprefix
  • Connecting to the internet in World of Goo Corporation to see others' clouds
  • Sound (sort of)
    • Music track restarts when you do things like hover over goo balls and makes annoying low, bass-y static.
      • This might just be my audio though...

What does not

  • When using fullscreen and using a game resolution that differs from your current display resolution, World of Goo will not change it back after exiting
    • This can be circumvented by running World of Goo in windowed mode, or using a fullscreen game resolution that matches your current display resolution


What was not tested

  •  Completing the game
    • I've gotten up to Chapter 3, but honestly, if it hasn't encountered an issue now, I doubt it will any time after.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:

Additional Comments

I give it Gold due to the resolution switchback not working, and my sound problem (though I have a feeling it's just me). It's JUST shy of platinum. If anyone else experiences or experienced the sound bug and know of a fix for it, please let me know :)
