THQ’s de Blob for Wii – Free PC Taster Inside

Paint the town red. Or yellow. Or blue. Etc.

Posted by Staff
One of SPOnG’s surprise ‘one to watch out for’ Wii and DS titles on show at E3 this year was THQ’s strangely named (and strangely capitalised) de Blob – essentially a blob-rolling game a la Katamari, where you paint a grey alien town in lovely day-glo lurid colours (pictured here).

de Blob’s barking mad storyline pitches you, the eponymous and gelatinous paint-sucking blob, against the fascistic colour-hating Ink Corp. The Wii Remote is of course perfect for games which involve rolling blobs and balls and whatnot around mazes and puzzles and cities in the sky (Super Monkey Ball and Mercury Meltdown Revolution have both proved this in spades).

de Blob began its life as a student project, and now you can download the full version of that initial game, which won plenty of well-deserved awards and stuff for being ‘Internet Game of the Year 2006, right here at, ’.

SPOnG urges you to download de Blob on your PC immediately, although we also have to warn you that it will destroy any attempt you thought you might make at doing any productive work today.

Try de Blob out and then just think that THQ is publishing an even better, more polished Wii and DS version. Hopefully in time for Xmas (we'll confirm release date with THQ as soon as we can). Ace!

Watch out for SPOnG’s detailed de Blob preview in the very near future.

Definately sounds like Katamari meets Wizball
