World of Goo hits iPad December 16

The pre-holiday release for the iPad version of World of Goo 2D Boy was hoping for has now been confirmed for December 16. What’s more, while talking with Indie Game: The Movie – an awesome project in itself – Ron Carmel, one half of 2D Boy, shows off some video footage (below) of the game in action on the iPad.

Carmel talks about the benefits of having World of Goo on the touch-based device, saying that the excitement for putting the game on the iPad was because the Wii remote and mouse are really just “proxies for your finger.” Those devices limit the interaction to a single point of interaction, but he says with the multitouch surface it’s possible to use multiple fingers to drag goo balls around and just have fun.
