In the german magazine Maniac they are a new wii exclusive game "De Blob" for Wii. They game will be published by THQ and the release is 2008. Later some translated informations for the english speaking audience.
damn, the Wii version better not just be a PS2 port. de blob looks pretty interesting too though. seems people are jumping on the stylized elebits bandwagon. i dont mind it, as long as its ground up, it might just be awesome.
The blob game? Holy ****. There was a poster on the Wii boards on IGN who posted a link to a blob game he was making. Like 8 months ago. Maybe more. He wanted to make it into a Wii game.
It was a PC demo. He said he wanted us to try it out, and give him our thoughts. Played it some. It was fun, but you couldn't do much (it was obviously a very early demo).
I'll see if I can find the post. I doubt it though. It was quite a while ago.
Anyway, it looks just like this blob game, but with the graphics a little more outdated. What you do, is roll around and run into the buildings. The buildings then turn into a color. The color depends on what color your blob is.
You can change your blob color by running over something. I forgot what. There are black enemies that turn you into a black blob. That will erase the color from the buildings, turning it black I think.
Now if I can find it....
Edit - Now that I look into things further, it seems like the PC game from 8(?) months ago inspired the new game.
Played it, seems pretty cool. I like the way the textures change as your blob touches objects, it runs really smoothly too. I hope the full game is far more fleshed out with proper objectives and rewards, and of course more levels. Could be a very interesting game.
I doubt that only one studio is responsible for all five versions. Here's the list of THQ in-house developers:
Blue Tongue Entertainment
Cranky Pants Games
Heavy Iron Studios
THQ Studio Australia
Btw, the magazine news also mentions a new 360/PS3 action game called Darksiders which I assume is Vigil Games' unannounced project. Regarding MX vs. ATV 08 (360/PS3), I guess Rainbow Studios is once again the developer.
