They can't help it
Developer DrinkBox Studios just spread the word of its new Vita title Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, which will be shown off at the Penny Arcade Expo due to kick off any minute now.
The team didn't give much away about the game other than it's a sequel to pleasing PSN puzzle platformer Tales from Space: About a Blob, and should use the Vita touch screen and twin-stick set-up in interesting ways.
We'll have more on this game as it seeps out.
DRINKBOX STUDIOS ANNOUNCES NEW PlayStation®Vita TITLE TALES FROM SPACE: MUTANT BLOBS ATTACK!
Studio’s second title to feature new protagonist and touch-based powers.
TORONTO, Ontario (August 24th, 2011) – Toronto-based developer DrinkBox Studios has announced that it is working on a new downloadable PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system title called Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack. A follow-up to Tales from Space: About a Blob - the studio’s first game - Mutant Blobs Attack will feature new levels, new powers and controls, and a new Blob player character.
“The control systems available on the PlayStation®Vita have allowed us to experiment with all kinds of new gameplay possibilities. We’re finding that touch controls in particular can be used to complement traditional thumb-stick puzzle-platforming very well”, said DrinkBox Designer Chris McQuinn. He added: “We learned a lot developing our first game - we want to use that experience to deliver the best game we can in Mutant Blobs Attack.”
DrinkBox will be showing an early development build of the game at PAX Prime 2011, a PAX teaser trailer is also in the works. For more information, visit the official Mutant Blobs Attack blog at www.mutantblobsattack.com.
