DrinkBox Studios , an independent Toronto-based video game developer, is releasing their second video game title Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack. Launching after the success of their first title—Tales from Space: About a Blob—which was one of Sony’s Top 5 Best-Selling Pub Fund Titles of 2011, Mutant Blobs Attack promises to be a PlayStation Vita success.
Available for purchase on February 21st in the PlayStation store, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a side-scrolling puzzle game that follows the adventures of a mutant blob that escapes from a lab. Set out to destroy and consume everything in its path, players take the blob through fun levels, such as a frat house, enlarging the blob to an ill-proportionate size. The game is fun to play, even for people like me – beginner players, and incorporates PS Vita controls for a different playing experience. Players should look out for fun Easter eggs in the background detail of the game such as references to other indie games or Internet memes.
DrinkBox Studios was excited about the challenge of creating a game on the PS Vita platform, in comparison to PS3. “When Sony gave us the opportunity to let us work on the platform (PS Vita) we sort of set out to do stuff we could do with it that we wouldn’t be able do on the PS3. Just to experiment, have fun and do something different,” said Ryan MacLean, CEO of Drinkbox Studios to Business Review Canada.
