PAX Winners!

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

PAX is over and the final scores are in.

Competition on both leaderboards was fierce in the final hours of the show. Here we see Geems one of his high score attempts (with a classic McQuinn photobomb).

The heat is on

At 6pm we closed off the contest and took stock of the final scores:

The Final Scores

And the winners are Geems on the Moon level, and PWG on the Desert level.

PWG

Runners up on the two levels were Eeease and Chris, both from PSNStores.com. Check out their recap of the intense final battle here (around the 16:00 mark, but you should listen to the whole thing!)

EEEASE and Chris

The fans, the press, and all of the other indies, we had a great time meeting you all!

Indies!

Get in the Game

Hi all,

We’ve been running a contest at PAX that will put the people with the highest scores for each of the two demo levels into Mutant Blobs Attack.

Today the contest really heated up. We had alot of turnover with people coming back multiple times throughout the day to reclaim the top spot.

With only one day left, we have Ian in the top spot for the moon level, and Eeease in the top spot for the desert level.

If you you want to be in the game, and you have some platforming skills, make sure to drop by our booth tomorrow at PAX. Even if you don’t get in the game, we’ll have some awesome buttons to give you.

Mutant Blobs Attack!

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Hi all, Graham here.

The team has been hard at work and we’re excited to finally announce the next installment in the Tales from Space series: MUTANT BLOBS ATTACK!

The game is being developed for the PlayStation Vita, and features some all new powers that take advantage of the Vita touch controls. Also features some new areas, and an all new Blob main character who is 65% edgier and 110% meaner than our beloved Orange Blob (+-2% error).

Ugh... Who turned on the lights?

This weekend, Mutant Blobs Attack will be playable at PAX at the DrinkBox Studios Booth on the 6th floor (booth 6413). We have a bunch of swag to give away, including some limited print buttons, and some game codes for About a Blob. And, as an added bonus, the person who finishes with the highest score over the PAX weekend will get to be in the final game!

As an added bonus, we have a surprise in store for people who like to perform random menial tasks and receive insubstantial rewards (I’m looking at you WoW players). We’ll be handing out an “Indie Passport” at the booth that will take you on a whirlwind tour of a select group of awesome indies. You’ll have to visit all of the booths and perform a different task at each if you want to claim your prize. (Better polish up your Rock-Paper-Scissor skills)

What will you have to do at these booths? Secret!

If you’re not already, make sure to follow us on Twitter at @MutantBlob and @DrinkBoxStudios. Also stay tuned to mutantblobsattack.com for all the latest news and updates for the game!

Hope to see you all at PAX!
