More World of Goo Sales Stats

2D Boy has an article wrapping up their World of Goo sale where customers could choose their own price for the platformer, offering more statistics and analysis on the 83,250 copies they moved during the sale. They start off by pointing out that the average price increased immediately following their previous update on the topic, which pointed out how cheap some customers were being. Other trends they highlight include that Linux users willingly paid the most and Windows users the least, that Switzerland was the most generous country and Turkey the least (the US and UK are pretty low on the list). This also gives them the opportunity to thank one generous customer who bought a copy for $150.00.

Good for 2D Boy! This turned out to not be my type of game at all, so I consider the 3 bucks I paid for it a donation to a cool indie developer.

Urg, you are right. You may notice I generally tend to use "Windows" instead of the generic "PC." This was a particularly bad story to fail to do that.

Blue, you're fired.

Make that Windows users, Blue. A lot of Linux users are also PC users.

This game was neat and all, but it really lacks in longevity. Once you play through it, it's like, meh.

And that last level is a DOOZY!

A bug hampering certain aspect ratios from working correctly was fixed within weeks of the game's release.
The last I read (months after release), was that it still required mucking about in config files, and parts of the game was still off-screen. They tweaked it a bit so you could actually progress between levels, but that was it.

If they haven't done anything about it since then, it's status quo.

Did they ever get around to adding proper support for various resolutions? That's why I never bought it, not the price.
You've been able change the resolution to anything you wanted to since the day the game was released. A bug hampering certain aspect ratios from working correctly was fixed within weeks of the game's release.

I wonder how much exchange rates were a factor too.

Those country stats are pretty facinating and I wonder how they reflect differing cultural attitudes. South Korea near the bottom where software is viewed more as a public good, while socialist European countries near the top for example.
