Nearly a decade after its Wii release, PC gamers will soon be able to experience 3D platformer de Blob's "color revolution", courtesy of THQ Nordic.
For those scratching their heads, de Blob is about a blob of paint called de Blob, who has to battle the I.N.K.T Corporation which is giving Chroma City a dull black-and-white look. With the help of his friends, he'll have to save the city from such a fate.
The process of doing so will involve battling "massive tank battalions, speedy I.N.K.T. racers and elite Inky soldiers", as well as making your way to the "impenetrable I.N.K.T. Fortress" and super-sizing de Blob against larger enemies. The gameplay revolves around getting paint and hurling de Blob at various parts of Chroma City and adding color to where he lands. Paint has to be collected after being depleted, and pools and hydrants are required for rehydration. Knowledge of colours will come in handy too, as the starting red, blue and yellow colours can be blended to create other colours.
In addition to the single-player mode, there are eight local multiplayer modes as well. Supporting up to four players and four-player splitscreen, these include:
The Steam store page doesn't mention any special features for the PC version, so it seems that all we can expect are nicer visuals. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, I suppose.
There's no precise release date on Steam at the moment, but the press release lists April 27 as the date of the colour revolution.
