What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Because we want to make a very fun game for the gamers, we need their ideas and feedback. Because Steam is the biggest distribution platform on the internet it was our goal to launch the game on Steam. On Steam we know we can get the best feedback to make our game LEGENDARY. Also this game so far is made with a 0€ budget and because graphics cost money and sadly can't do them myself we need a budget, because some Kickstarter projects ended up being a disaster we're already giving you early access to our game including Steam achievements and trading cards to collect.

During each update we will put up new levels with different play styles. According to the feedback of users we will tweak to make them easier or harder (More challenging).”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game is in Early Access to get feedback from the players to give them the experience they want. In most games you're doing the same thing over and over and over. That's something we try to avoid with making Blob From Space. We will use the feedback from players for ingame features, other ways to play the game and new game modes to make the game as challenging as possible. For more details about these features please make sure you read our answer to "How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?" We try to keep the game in Early Access for 6-12 months depending on the support we get from the players.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have better graphics and over 100 levels of different challenges. During these challenge you could be either flying/driving a vehicle trying to escape from the evil planet, or walking your way through an upside-down level, dark levels in which you only have a short amount of sight, under water levels in which you don't need to jump, but you need to be carefull for swimming enemies. Also some missions will not just be go from point A to point B, but there will be levels in which you need to collect objects. When you collected all objects you are able to go to the next level with a new challenge. There also will be different settings. Lava levels which are way harder than normal levels and ice levels which can be very untrustfull (With slippery tiles and cracking through ice).

All levels will have a puzzle element. This means you will need the transform powers to get through the level. Most levels are solvable in different ways.

The Blob will also have more powers to use. These powers will be unlocked during the story mode. These powers are slowing down enemies and jumping against walls. There will be over 10 enemies all with their special powers. These powers are needed to solve puzzles in levels. This game will offer you a very fun gaming experience. A game experience in which you can challenge your friends to beat your highscore. We also will add a leaderboards so you can challenge people all around the world to beat your highscore.

This game will even feature local co-op mode in the full version. Play with your friend on the same computer. In these co-op mode you will need to help eachother or play against eachother to get the best score.

During Early Access we will try to put out an update every month or every 2 months with new levels, features and achievements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At this moment we have a "rage" game with over 15 levels (You will need to replay the game a few times to see all the levels) with Steam features like achievements and trading cards. We already implemented the dark levels and the mini-games are already in the game as well.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We can't promise to keep the price the same at launch. This is because we maybe need a bigger team to help making the game better. By expending the team we need a bigger budget.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will listen to all the feedback the gamers have. Sadly we can't use all the feedback, but we will learn alot from it. On the forums people can leave their ideas and we will try to put it in the game. Ideas that we really appreciate are ideas to make the game more challenging and ways to change the style of playing the game.”

Change in Blob From Space

As many of you know, the last couple of months there hasn't been a big update to Blob From Space. I will change that, but sadly need to change some ideas of the game as well. My idea:

Blob From Space will become a 2D platformer combined with a text based adventure. The choises you make will have impact on the story and the 2D platform levels you will be playing.

There will be 4 short stories.
- Blob From Space: Origins
- Blob From Space goes Hollywood
- Blob From Space: Defenders of the multiverse
- Blob From Space: Light V Dark

Each planet you see in the game will start a story. There will be different achievements in the game which are unlockable in the 2D platform levels, but there are also achievements that are only unlockable during the text story. So playing a story again will unlock different achievements.

I hope you guys like the idea and the path we're going on and hope you will like the stories as well.

The planning is to release the first short story in December or atleast January.

Keep playing and have a nice day!
- Jos

About This Game




With this game we try to challenge the player to finish the entire game with only 3 continues.

There are no save points so you have to make the entire run in one go.

If you have friends (Or the internet) you can share cheat codes to skip some levels, but don't forget you will not get the maximum amount of points and maybe not able to unlock certain achievements using cheat codes. The choice is yours.


With this game we're trying to get back to the old retro gaming age. Of course back in the time we didn't had Steam and it's awesome features, so it's not completely back to the retro gaming age.

We try to make the game challenging as possible. Easy to learn to play, but you will need some skill to complete the game, because the further you get in the game, the harder the challenges will be. At some point you will have less vision, or maybe you're Blob will be upside-down.


Paying homage to games from the earliest days of video gaming, Blob From Out of Space is easy to play, but difficult to complete 2D side scroller.

Blob is flying through space when his UFO gets shot down by a rocket and crash lands on an unknown planet. Blobs brother is promptly captured by the planets evil leader and it's up to Blob to save him and to escape from the planet.

How the game plays is up to you. Each decision opens up a new path. Collecting diamonds opens up more choices, but with them comes addition risk. With only 3 continues available and no save, risk is a bad thing! Discovered a cheat? Share it with your friends, but use a cheat and you won’t get the maximum number of points. The choice is yours.
