New Details Emerge for Upcoming PlayStation®Vita system Title, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack  

DrinkBox Studios’ hungry mutant blob gets stuffed full of new features


TORONTO, Ontario – January 19, 2012 – Independent developer DrinkBox Studios, Inc. today released new information about its upcoming PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system title, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack. The Toronto-based studio also re-confirmed its intention to work towards a North American launch day release.


Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a side-scrolling puzzle platformer about an ornery mutant blob that, after being held captive in a lab that can only be described as something out of a retro sci-fi movie from the early ’50’s, escapes into the world and sets out on a path to destroy and consume everything! A follow-up to last year’s PlayStation®Network title Tales from Space: About a Blob, Mutant Blobs Attack will contain a wide range of exciting new features and gameplay modes designed exclusively for the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system.


“We are all very excited about PlayStation®Vita and to be part of the launch,” said Ryan MacLean, CEO of DrinkBox Studios. “The system’s next generation features have allowed us to really think outside of the box while developing Mutant Blobs Attack – it feels as though the technology has in some areas exceeded that of its console counterpart. We’ve had a lot of fun creating the game and we’re working hard to get it out as soon as possible!”

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack
Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack will feature new levels, new powers, new PlayStation®Vita controls, new gameplay modes, new puzzle solving elements, a new (faster) blob player character, and more.

  • Play as an all-consuming mutant blob as you explore (and devour) your way through more than two dozen interactive levels.
  • A wide range of environments: everything from a frat house to a metropolis
  • Next generation touch controls (touchscreen and rear touch pad) combined with those of a classic platformer for a fresh take on the platforming genre
  • “Tilt-a-Blob” bonus levels featuring gyroscopic controls reward players’ performance and add to the replayability
  • Growth throughout levels provide players with a constantly changing perspective on the in-game world
  • Challenging puzzles mixed into the action and mayhem
  • Competitive, collection-based leaderboards, support for special in-game achievements and Trophies


The announcement trailer for Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack can be viewed here:


Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is scheduled for a Q1 2012 release in North America and supported European territories.

    A long time ago I remember I had a trans. potion and I didn’t know what it did so I used it and it turned my pet mutant! (of course) Anyway, I really didn’t like it so I put it up for adoption. My question is what was it? It was light brown in color and it was a massive blob thing with random hairs sticking out. I thought it might’ve been a Chia but they look nothing like that now unless they were changed into what they look like now. Does anyone have any idea what it could’ve been? And if someone find a pic I would reallllyyyy like that. Thanks!

    This is what I saw from the TV show X-Men: Evolution.

    Magneto’s Brotherhood of Mutants:
    (Another guy who I cannnot recognise.)

    Mystique’s Brotherhood of Mutants:
    (Another guy who I cannot recognise. He wears a dome shaped thing over his head, and can shoot green stuff, kind of like Jean Grey.)

    However, apparently it is different in the comics.

    Magneto’s Brotherhood of Mutants
    Scarlet Witch

    Mystique’s Brotherhood of Mutants

    Which is correct?

    Im referring to the enemy of the x-men.
    The blob is one of the enemies from the comcs and the old Televiosion show. he wasn’t in the movies. he’s usually with Pyro, and Mystique

  • Shay H

    1. Is his mutant name is The Blob, why did he get mad when Wolverine called him that?
    2. In the beginning of the movie, when Wolverine & his brother joined that general’s group, The Blob was there, only he was skinny. (He had a tattoo of this girl on his arm and he said he loved her.) Well, why was he in the chopper? He didn’t have any super powers at that time, did he? He wasn’t fat yet, so he didn’t have any super strength or his own gravitational pull. Soo, why was he there?!?! Or am I wrong & he had another power 1st? If so what is it? Thanksx.
