    I read the hands on article from IGN here:
    http://wii.ign.com/articles/844/844908p1.html

    It's about the Wii game De Blob. It's going to be quite a cool game and it seems it's being developed by a dutch gaming team calling themselves "Banana games"! See their website here: http://binnenstad.hku.nl/

    It has begun as a study project done by a bunch of dutch students from Utrecht. They made a free pc download from it, because it started as a piece of information for the people of Utrecht to show how the city is going to change in the coming 15 years. So they made a game to give a "playful" demonstration of how the centre of the city was going to change.

    So you can download a sort of preview of the game that now is coming to the Wii.

    Wow, I'm proud that the Netherlands are finally going to put themselves on the gaming map! [​IMG]

    Well they're both involved it seems. On IGN you see both companies listed. I suppose that the original was created by Banana Games and I guess Blue Tongue developed it for the Wii.

    Still they're both dutch companies.

    Anyway I'm very curious about this game. It's a bit off-kilter, I like that [​IMG]

    Looks interesting.. good to see that not all small developers on the Wii are interested in shovelware.. some of them also have good ideas [​IMG]

    It's good to remember that Portal was originally a students idea..

    I didn't even know they were made by dutch companies.

    I do remember that "Garfield's A Tail of Two Kitties" for the DS that was made by a dutch developer Two Tribes, who come from my neighbourhood. Every day I drive past their office. http://www.twotribes.com/
    Whoa, I just read ontheir website that they also did Worms: Open Warfare 2! Cool!
