I never saw your comment, sorry! I should have received an email notification but it never came...

As the error message says, you have to download the game files archive into the package build directory, or configure a download agent in makepkg.conf in order to build this package (as well as for the other humble bundle games).
Check the ArchWiki for more information about that:

By the way, the hib-dlagent package doesn't work for me, I have to use hib-dlagent-git.

@trya: I would gladly accept your offer.

And regarding local:// vs hib:// - I presume that the current usage of local:// is to hint the person, who is building the package, to place the World of Goo source file into $srcdir. The hib:// approach keeps such functionality for people who haven't defined a custom value for hib::// in /etc/makepkg.conf. This (along with the reason smls pointed out) eliminates any reason to use local:// instead or together with hib://.

Update: Actually, when you buy the game directly from it still goes through the Humble Store, so I think hib:// should cover that as well.
(Of course humble:// would be a more appropriate/inclusive name for it, but everyone is already using hib:// so I'd say let's stick with it.)

Regarding local:// vs. hib//, I think it's possible to specify alternatives like so:


But I haven't tested it.
If it works (i.e. first try the hib dlagent if any, if it fails use local), that would be the ideal solution imo.

You don't have to wait for a new maintainer to volunteer, before disowning a package.
Simply disown as soon as you're not interested in the package anymore, or as soon as you know you're not gonna put in the work to maintain/improve it anymore.
Then new maintainers can just pick them up (otherwise they wouldn't even know that it's available)...

(For what it's worth, I'd be willing to maintain World of Goo and Braid myself, I love both games and still play them from time to time.)

@C5OK5Y: I'm still not too keen on doing it, because World of Goo is not specifically distributed through the HIB. Nevertheless, I'd gladly let you maintain the PKGBUILD if you want to (Braid in the same case, I'd like to disown all my PKGBUILDs of commercial games).
