de Blob lives on as Nordic Games acquire IP
Another casualty of THQ’s untimely demise, Nordic Games have announced that they have acquired intellectual property de Blob.
Developed by nine students studying at the Utrecht School of the Arts and Utrecht University, it was eventually picked up by THQ who reworked the game before releasing it on Wii. Despite the sequel being brought to multiple platforms, it was a sales flop that performed well below expectations – eventually resulting in developer Blue Tongue Entertainment shutting shop.
Despite that, Nordic Games have shared their excitement about the “polychromatic extravaganza” joining their portfolio, looking to evaluate what they can do with the existing games and potential sequels. Hopefully they can draw up something, and we’ll be certain to keep you posted!
