de Blob: The underground

So E3, a freaking huge video game conference has just happen. The announcements of many games and surprises. Game news pretty much flooded over and made us little geeks such happy things. There are things that I’m looking forward to very much (portal2 and kirby yarn are some must gets for me)

In the weeks leading up to E3, bluetongue; manly the team I was in was very busy with getting our demo ready in time and making it look awesome.

So I guess it’s no real surprises that a second blob game is to be released, our surprises was that it’ll be across all 3 platforms, wii, PS3 and Xbox360. (blob in HD omg!)19

For any of you who don’t know what de blob is it’s a game about a colourless world and you play as a blob who has the ability to soak up paint and colour the world pretty, free monochrome citizens and defeate the evil I.N.K.T corporation.

I think it was in my first year of uni when some kids from bluetongue had come over to RMIT to show us de blob, it was amazing and to be working on it’s squeal it almost mind blowing. I’m quite lucky to be sitting next to two amazing level designers, it gives me joy to know that one of them use to be an intern as well. :)

de blob was an amazing games, but the squeal just blows it away. And I’m not just saying this coz I’ve been working on it. It really is. When I compare the two games I sit there in shocked in how much the game has gotten better yet it’s still for the same platform.

de blob: the underground is a game that’s been made from love and lols. And I’m so happy that I get to add my own love and lols into the mix of it all.
