I love the title of the game, because it reminded me of a great horror trash movie...
In fact "The Blob" is great fun to play. Everything is very well done (especially the graphics) and I really like the concept.
But again I´m to tired to write a proper description, so here is what the developer said himself:
"For the past four months I have worked together with eight other Dutch students on a game called The Blob. The game was a school project for an outside client. The station area of the city of Utrecht in The Netherlands is getting a thorough face-lift, as the station and many buildings around it are being rebuilt. Our task was to make a game that plays in the station area as it will be ten years from now, so that while playing, the audience is informed about what is going to happen. The game was to be played in a centre with information about the changes, but also be downloadable for players at home. This means the main target audience will walk by, play for a few minutes, and then walk on, but it should also be fun for people who download the game.
The resulting game is The Blob. It 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.
The game is finished, so we are hoping many people will play it now!"
IMPORTANT: Don´t try to run the game by clicking on the .exe. Use the shortcut instead. It won´t run otherwise - at least not on my computer.
