The Blob

Hi guys, it's been a while since my last visit to the MBN. Good to see there is still so much activity!

Some of you may know me from the early days and maybe the first MBN meeting in Utrecht the Netherlands.

I had to think of the MBN when I read an article about our game in a French game magazine. The game is called “the Blob” and I developed it together with eight other students for the Dutch city of Utrecht. Because some of you may know Utrecht I thought you might like it. You can read more about it and download it here or here.
There is a Dutch and an English version you can download.







This is the team that made The Blob:

Jasper Koning: project lead/level designer/artist
Fabian Akker: lead level designer
David Vink: sound designer/level designer
Gijs Hermans: lead artist
Ralph Rademakers: artist
Fahrang Namdar: artist
Huub van Summeren: artist
Olaf Jansen: programmer
Joost van Dongen: lead programmer

Have fun!

Your nickname rings a bell. Eitherway, welcome back!
Judging by the screenshots, that's one hell of a nice game. There's no chance there is/ever will be a *nix version?

I don't get it. What do I do after I painted the city? Didn't find all coins, but did paint all special buildings.

Wow, It must have taken you a while to program it! What language did you use?
I find it very fun!

This is creepy.
I met Joost (Oogst) a few years ago, around that time I registered to MBN too.
Now Joost showed me this Blob game, but I had no idea someone out of his team would actually be on the MBN

It was a team of.. 8 people, right?

Anyway, I already talked to him about this.. This is one of the things that inspire me, that's why my study will be the Game Design in Utrecht too.
