And I was just saying how the Wii could use more Geschicklichkeit games.

Still haven't finished DaH 2. But it was pretty fun. Could be pretty interesting on the Wii. From Ship control, to taking over human bodies...there's some potential here.

If some of the dialogue could be controlled via short phrases spoken into the mic, that would be neat.

blob was at GDC, looked great. glad it's found a home.

So I take it this is not the game made by Rainbow Studios?

Either way, it looks interesting.

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Anyway, it looks just like this blob game, but with the graphics a little more outdated.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.

Watched the video and the pc concept blob game looks really cool. The music is also kinda nice.

You know, I haven't bothered to check the internal Wiki at my internship to see what platforms DAH3 is coming out on. I just sort of assumed PS2/360/PS3.

DAH2 was developed by Pandemic Studios. This one is being developed by Heavy Iron.

And I think that is about all I'm at liberty to say.

DAH3 isn't developed by Heavy Iron (nor Pandemic Studios).

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.

Uh, then who is developing it?
.

I doubt that only one studio is responsible for all five versions. Here's the list of THQ in-house developers:

Blue Tongue Entertainment
Concrete Games
Cranky Pants Games
Heavy Iron Studios
Helixe Games
Incinerator Studios
Juice Games
Kaos Studios
Locomotive Games
Mass Media
Paradigm Entertainment
Rainbow Studios
Relic Entertainment
THQ Studio Australia
Vigil Games
Volition, Inc.

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.

It's funny how lots of publishers have been keeping an eye on indie studios' ideas and publishing them. Every Extend, Tumiki Fighters, and De Blob. Nice.
