Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack Headed to the PlayStation Vita

Post Thumb:


Drinkbox Studios has announced that its newest title, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, will be releasing in the first quarter of 2012 for the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system. Some of you have been waiting over 50 years to cast havoc on those mutant blobs, ever since watching Steve McQueen in the cult classic The Blob. Doesn’t that just make you feel all gooey inside!?!

From the Press Release
Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a side-scrolling puzzle platformer about an ornery mutant blob that, after being held captive in a lab that can only be described as something out of a retro sci-fi movie from the early ’50′s, escapes into the world and sets out on a path to destroy and consume everything! A follow-up to last year’s PlayStation®Network title Tales from Space: About a Blob, Mutant Blobs Attack will contain a wide range of exciting new features and gameplay modes designed exclusively for the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system.

“We are all very excited about PlayStation®Vita and to be part of the launch,” said Ryan MacLean, CEO of DrinkBox Studios. “The system’s next generation features have allowed us to really think outside of the box while developing Mutant Blobs Attack – it feels as though the technology has in some areas exceeded that of its console counterpart. We’ve had a lot of fun creating the game, and we’re working hard to get it out as soon as possible!”

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack will feature new levels, new powers, new PlayStation®Vita controls, new gameplay modes, new puzzle solving elements, a new (faster) blob player character, and more. Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is scheduled for a Q1 2012 release in North America and supported European territories.
