World of Goo made the top 10 best selling PC games list for US retail stores for the week ending January 17. We mentioned at the time that the retail version of 2D Boy's acclaimed puzzle game is being published by Brighter Minds. Well, it appears not even the high sales of World of Goo is keeping Brighter Minds for filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
According to our sister site GameDaily Biz, the publisher filed for bankruptcy protection on Jan. 28 which means it can stay in business while it reorganizes. Little else is known about what's going on at the company and how it will affect its deal with 2D Boy for retail distribution of World of Goo.
