has detailed About a Blob co-op play and PSN exclusivity today, as follows:
If you don't already know, in Tales from Space: About a Blob you take on the role of a tiny space blob that lands on Earth.
What's special about this particular creature is that he can eat anything smaller than him, which in turn allows him to grow. As the blob grows he can eat larger and larger objects. The player's goal is to find their way through all the levels and eventually eat the world.
We recently came back from the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) where lots of people got a chance to play the game for the first time. The feedback was great, and we were extremely happy to see friends and couples have so much fun playing together in co-op.
In Tales from Space: About a Blob, two players can play simultaneously and interact by climbing or jumping off one another. Although the goal is for the blobs to work together, players can choose to attack or push each other around if they want, and can compete to see which player is better at destroying the world.
Around the office, people usually ping-pong back and forth between working together to solve puzzles, then messing each other up near obstacles or enemies.
