Coming from THQ Nordic development director Reinhard Pollice…
“De Blob is the perfect indie game. On the Wii, it was a bit underrepresented – it should have been on Steam in the first place, it would have been a massive success. Although it’s not that hardcore, in terms of the visual style, the mechanics are so cool and it’s so relaxing. I remember when we looked into that, I was playing it with a Wii emulator and I felt like I could play it forever.
Before THQ went bankrupt, they had an online De Blob game [in development] which was basically like Splatoon. It was never released, but I think they invested a couple of million into it. They were making it for Asia. It was pretty far [through development], it wasn’t far off soft-launch. But it was funny, because when Nintendo announced Splatoon I was like ‘hey, I’ve already seen that – that’s literally De Blob Online’.”
