The first time we got to meet the adorable little blobs who were coming from space to well, absorb us, we enjoyed ourselves. To be honest, we didn't know if we'd ever see them again, but Drinkbox Studios isn't one to rest on their laurels, and since the release of the original game on the PSN, they've been hard at work on a sequel, this time for everyone's favorite upcoming handheld, the PS Vita.

We're not quite sure yet when Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack will release, but the fact that it is in development is enough to put a smile on our faces. The original was a pretty clever mix of Katamari Damacy and Gish, and it seemed like a good choice for portable gaming. Apparently we weren't the only ones to think that.

“The control systems available on the PlayStation®Vita have allowed us to experiment with all kinds of new gameplay possibilities. We’re finding that touch controls in particular can be used to complement traditional thumb-stick puzzle-platforming very well”, said DrinkBox Designer Chris McQuinn. He added: “We learned a lot developing our first game - we want to use that experience to deliver the best game we can in Mutant Blobs Attack.”

Promising to deliver new levels, new powers, a new blob to control (we're not sure how you distinguish one blob from another) and of course new controls, it sounds like a winner to us already. If you haven't checked out the first game and you enjoy puzzle-platformers, it's absolutely worth your time to log onto PSN and check it out.
