About A Blob Coming To PSN This February

One of our “Most Anticipated Games of 2011” will be heading to the US Playstation Store in early February. Tales From Space: About A Blob, if you don’t know, is a puzzle platformer where you take control of a Blob who recently has crash landed on Earth. I think this video illustrates what I am talking about.
Besides absorbing everthing in sight, the blobs also have other special powers. Back at PAX, Eric and I had some fun testing out the “magnetic” abilities which can create some rather fun traversal puzzles. A new power, which wasn’t at PAX, electricity was just recently announced. With that you can turn certain objects on and off.
The full game features a healthy amount of content. Each of the game’s seventeen levels contain special speed run and collection achievement targets. We have also included online leaderboards to track top speed run times for each level.
So all of that will be available for PlayStation Plus members on February 1st, while us regular folk will have to wait until February 8th. There is no price set yet, but I hear that it will probably come out at around $15. We should have a copy in hand next week, so expect some video previews!
