A Boy and His Blob

For a second when I saw the title I read "A Boy and his Blowjob". O_o This game oozes with charm. As for that hug button? EVERY game should have one.

Fine! I'll get a God damn Wii already. Fine!
It almost looks like they were trying to take A Boy and his Blob's game play and emulate Braid's art style/vibe with it. I mean, the two games are vaguely similar.

This game looks pretty neat. Very Maple Story styled graphics.

I feel like I've been waiting for this game longer than it's actually been in development. I don't believe I'll be disappointed. :) Moai head!! Sweeeet. I hope they'll put the NES version on VC soon. Business was Milon's Secret Castle hardcore.
This definitely looks like a game to play with a girlfriend or something. super cute!
fuck this game looks like fun

Looks great... Love the animation... Another mark for the Wii in my decision on getting one of them or a PS3...
New drinking game. Take a shot every time Vinny says "aww" and try not to get alcohol poisoning.
I just keep imagining this as a 2D version of The Maw. That's a good thing. And it just makes me want to shout in a high pitched voice, "Blob? BLOOOOOOOOOOOOB!"
" New drinking game. Take a shot every time Vinny says "aww" and try not to get alcohol poisoning. "
okay so the blob boy is brother to Sophie from the lucidity-Nanna game and Tim from Braid is their adoptive parent?
I can't believe someone decided to remake A Boy and His Blob, one of the worst games of all time. A real good example of the half-assed flood the market with anything nature of the 80's, the soundtrack of the game even featured an astoundingly long pause between the looping of its grainy beeping off-beat jumble of sounds. Why anyone would think to touch this game again, I don't know. But I have to say, it does look charming.

When he hugged the blob and Vinny exclaimed I lol'd so hard. hahahaha
I like it.
That hug is adorable. Riding the anvil was pretty damn easy to figure out, so God damn thank Drew for being there...what would GiantBomb be without him!? i feel like getting this, my Wii collection is so damn small.
I love the art style of this game.
Every game now needs a Hug button.
I really want a hug right now
Hug button should be in all games now and into the future. . . Playin some Gears? Go run up to a locust and hold the bumpers down BOOM give him a huge that makes him EXPLODE!
This is a great Quick Look. That blob is some kinda cute. The black stars remind me of Mario Galaxy.
It seems very hard for those clumsy wii controller, better played with analogs sticks , i guess.
Awesome quick look. LOL @ goo gone.
i wanna hug the blob
I kept changing between the extremes of "Aaaw! this game is adorable!" when the characters hug, and "OH GOD THIS GAME IS FUCKED-UP D:" when the boy fell to his death. It looks like a good game, if I ever get a Wii I'll have to hunt it down.
This game is sooooo racist.
ok sorry but awwww
I think this game gave me diabetes.
Looks great but it's a shame it's only on the Wii. If it was on the 360 I would buy it immidiately...
Man, every game needs a hug button.
Game is absolutely adorably beautiful.
It looks very nice, but the gameplay seems like it would get boring and frustratingly slow quickly
I remember playing Boy and his Blob on the NES. That game was really hard from what I can remember.
But the Hug Button was my favorite. Vinny's reaction was priceless. And any talk about the blob really. "You don't understand the physical properties of the blob."
I wasn't sure about the game. Then I saw the hug. MUST BUY.
