After months of teasing the port, 2D Boy announced that acclaimed PC/WiiWare physics-based puzzler World of Goo, winner of the 2008 Independent Games Festival's "Design Innovation" and "Technical Excellence Awards", will finally release for the iPad on December 16th.

Ahead of that launch, the studio released this trailer produced by BlinkWorks, the filmmakers also working on Indie Game: The Movie. It's a neat video that has 2D Boy's Ron Carmel praising the combination of iPad's "natural interface" with World of Goo's touch-friendly gameplay.

If you've yet to play World of Goo, you can grab the indie game -- which has you dragging and manipulating globs of goo to build different structures, bridges, and more -- on Steam for just $9.99.
