Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
A Boy and His Blob is an upcoming platform video game developed by WayForward Technologies and published by Majesco Games for the Wii. It is slated for release in North America in October 2009, while a European release date is set for late 2009.
The gameplay of A Boy and His Blob is very similar to the original game's gameplay, though it uses a visual interface to better identify what each jellybean does. The protagonist feeds the titular blob jelly beans to transform him into one of fifteen different objects that can be used to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. Screenshots indicate that the game will feature an overground city level similar to the original, and will be a side scrolling 2D platformer. The game consists of eighty levels (forty standard and an additional forty hidden challenge levels) with the standard levels consisting of an average of ten hours of gameplay. A Boy and His Blob does not take advantage of the Wii Remote's motion detection or IR controls.
Plus it has what all games should: A hug button, for when your blob gets scared. <3
