It might not be one of the Wii’s most renowned games, but puzzle-platformer de Blob is certainly an interesting title. Released back in 2008, the game allowed players to paint entire worlds in various colors, restoring happiness to the populace and defeating the oppressive INKT Corporation.
Now, Austrian publisher Nordic Games has bought the rights to the franchise from THQ. The purchase is one of many IPs the company has acquired from THQ, alongside Darksiders, Red Faction, and the THQ trademark.
It is likely that Nordic Games intend to make another sequel to the de Blob franchise, bringing the total number of games to three. A statement from production manager Reinhard Pollice regarding the acquisition seems to indicate that this is indeed the case.
“de Blob is just a great and truly unique franchise. We are excited about what the future holds for this polychromatic extravaganza as the newest addition to our portfolio. We will evaluate opportunities with the existing games, as well as potential sequels.” —
