Fresh, compelling and rapidly developed. De Blob was created by a group of students at the HKU (Utrecht School of the Arts) and Utrecht University. The game was subsequently bought up by THQ and is now being developed as a new Wii title by Blue Tongue games in Melbourne. This is a great example of a young team getting an independent game project up and running and then commercialised. This kind of innovation doesn’t happen often enough but with more online distribution of games and the broad appeal of the Wii platform hopefully there will be many more! More info and also a video demo of the game here.
