THQ Nordic says De Blob is the “perfect indie game”, reveal cancelled De Blob online game with Splatoon vibes

on

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’.”
