The Blob (De Blob in Dutch) is probably one of the most original games you've ever seen. It's even more amazing when you learn the story behind it: apparently, The Blob was developed as a course project by a group of nine students at the Utrecht School of Arts, in just four months.

Their main goal was to depict the physics of movement in a realistic way and believe me, they must have got an A for this.

The game itself is simple: you control Blob, a round shaped alien who crashed with his space ship on Earth and is being chased by the police.

Blob's mission consists on painting certain buildings with a given color, which you get from other characters spread all over the map.

Controls are a bit chaotic at the beginning.

You move Blob just with the mouse, but it takes a while until you get used to speed and movement. Also, once you're done coloring the buildings, that's pretty much all about it, although there's a secondary goal to keep you amused: collect the 50 coins that have been hidden all around the city.

De Blob is a 3D game in which the player controls a ball of paint rolling through the city. The ball can absorb coloured NPC’s to become larger and change its colour.

With the paint, the player can then proceed to paint the entire city. Almost everything is paintable: buildings, trees, cars and using the paint trace even the ground.

The main goal of the game is to paint all 17 landmark buildings. Hardcore fanatics can also try to collect all 50 coins that are hidden around the level.
