Sorry, blob.

Australian studio Blue Tongue Entertainment — creators of the ludicrously enjoyable de Blob games — has been closed by owner THQ.

The original Wii-exclusive adventure was critically and commercially well-received — it scored an 8/10 in our de Blob review — and the team moved on to produce a sequel for Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360. de Blob 2 on PlayStation 3 supported PlayStation Move, but the move to HD consoles didn't quite capture the sales THQ had hoped, and now the studio has closed.
