"Linux Community...Prepare to get Goo'ed.
"Kyle Gabler and Ron Carmel are Indie Game Developers. They've
both spent some time "in the trenches with companies such as
EA...they made fairly good money and had steady work, but something
ate at them...something uncomfortable and nagging.
"It wasn't the fairy dust and wind chime world they wanted to
work in. Reality can suck...why make your living in it? Most of us
have to. They don't...they write games.
"And now they've written a game and ported it to Linux.
"Reported in 2008 as the most stolen game on the Internet, The
World of Goo is a joyful, giggleful, and beautiful way to
completely waste hours of your life. I know."
