Since yesterday I’ve found some video of Boy and His Blob, both the new and the old versions. It’s quite staggering the difference between the two. Obviously the machines they run on are worlds apart but the art direction has equally gone off in a different direction.
From an initial look it seems as though its more a reimagining than a remake. Everything seems cuter and cuddlier and infinitely more accomodating for younger players. The boy even seems to have found some rudimentary platforming skills.
