World of Goo is a very nice and smart computer game, recently released by two game developers. We gave it Josh as a birthday present, and both me and barb are addicted, too. I'm very much looking forward for the Linux version, so I don't have to use my kids windows based computer for playing. (I couldn't get it to work using VirtualBox...)
It runs fine under Wine.
that did the trick, thanks! (only what will now keep me from "wasting" all my waking hours on building goo-towers?)
You might be able to talk some solace in the game being fairly short in terms of play time. It is definately a lot of fun though. (I finished it on saturday)
you can find free version of crossover for games, it works like charm
