About de Blob

The evil I.N.K.T. Corporation has declared “Color is a Crime!”, robbing the beautiful and vibrant Chroma City of all color and imprisoning its citizens. Only the iconic hero de Blob can flip, bounce and paint his way past the evil Inkys to launch a color revolution and save Chroma City from a future without color. Developed by THQ’s Blue Tongue Entertainment, players take on the heroic role of de Blob and lead an underdog group of determined Color Revolutionaries in a battle against massive tank battalions, speedy I.N.K.T. racers and elite Inky soldiers on a quest to free the citizens of Chroma City. Deadly traps also await de Blob on his perilous journey to the impenetrable I.N.K.T. Fortress, including hot plates, electric shocks and Inky turrets. Featuring a deep, single-player campaign spanning ten levels, numerous quick-fire sprint challenges and over eight multiplayer options for up to four people, de Blob allows players to creatively remix the city by using custom paints, patterns and soundtracks. The race to rescue Chroma City has just begun, and only de Blob can save the world from a black-and-white future!

“de Blob was developed from the ground up as a platformer game that takes unique advantage of Wii’s gameplay mechanics,” said Nick Hagger, producer, Blue Tongue Entertainment. “A highly intuitive control scheme will have players bouncing and painting as de Blob in no time as they begin a vibrant adventure of restoration.”

de Blob is also available from THQ Wireless for the Apple iPhone and on mobile phones.
