de Blob arrives on PC, nine years after its original release

Paint the town red.

It only took nine years, but the 2008 Wii platformer de Blob has finally received a PC release.


Available now on Steam and GOG for Ł13.49 / $14.99 (a 25 per cent discount available through 4th May), this looks like a fairly straightforward updated port of the 3D platformer about a colourful blob painting a monochrome town.

The PC port was developed by Blitworks, who handled ports for Fez, Broken Age, Axiom Verge, Invisible, Inc., and more.

We recommended de Blob upon its initial launch on Wii. "It's got 'Destined For Cult Status' written all over it," said former Eurogamer editor Kristan Reed in his 2008 de Blob review.

Back in 2014 publisher Nordic Games acquired the de Blob IP from its original now defunct publisher, THQ. At the time Nordic Games teased that it would do something with the license, but all things de Blob went dark for a few years there. In that time Nordic Games renamed itself THQ Nordic because it could and it would stay in line with the properties it had acquired.
