Two years ago, we released Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack for the PlayStation Vita to great critical and fan acclaim. Last year, we did nothing Blob-related and shipped some wrestling game. This year, we’ve been working on ways to make the experience bigger and better for customers who want Mutant Blobs Attack in the living-room. Soon, we’ll be adding you to our design process, so that you can help us shape the future of how Mutant Blobs do their Attacking.
A powerful new category of actual reality headheld controllers is on the horizon for the previous generation of next-gen platforms.
The Power Hat prototype, developed under the codename ‘Project DrinkBoculus‘, is a DualShock 3 controller lashed to the top of a bike helmet with little bungee cords. Today, we are happy to announce the Power Hat offers full compatibility with 18% of Mutant Blobs Attack and 100% partial compatibility. (We’re still working on a Power Hat for the 360, but we’re unable to get the motion sensor in the 360 controller to work for some reason.)
We have also created a prototype commercial for our prototype, filmed under the codename: Project DrinkBoculus Commercial.
