Very cool! Perhaps inspired a little by the *really* old horror movie of the same title? [smile]

"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.".....V

Looks great, is it inspired by the game katamari?

I really like this, you've done very well in such a short time. I'm impressed with the performance and the completeness of this game. I also like the finishing touches like transparent buildings that occulde the view.

One point though, the mouse-pointer is not visible when the menu is displayed.

Well done.

We actually only heard about that movie after choosing the name. We tried changing the name then, but could not think of anything cooler, so we left it at The Blob.

A little bit, but none of us have Katamari, so we were not able to try it to get extra ideas. So it is only inspired a little bit by Katamari, but I agree the games have some big similarities.

Very well made game, extremely nice art. Maybe a bit difficult controls and you should be able to jump a bit higher (often got stopped by tiny objects on the ground). But concidering the time spent and it's purpouse it's an awesome game, Really cool graphics.

Hi,

I downloaded the english version and installed it but it throws an exception when I try to run it :(

Orge.log file:
16:37:12: An exception has been thrown!-----------------------------------Details:-----------------------------------Error #: 8Function: FileSystemArchive::changeDirectoryDescription: Cannot open requested directory Assets\NL/Menus. File: ..\src\OgreFileSystem.cppLine: 141Stack unwinding: <<beginning of stack>>

I have DirectX 9 installed already and VS2005.

All I did was install and run, let me know if you need any more info about my system or anything.

You probably tried to run the .EXE, but you should run the shortcut. The same .EXE is used for several versions and the shortcut gives it the right instructions for this version (several menu options are different for the version for the stand at out clients place).

Hi,

How silly of me to try and run the exe :P

Now that it runs I have to say I'm very impressed, it's a very fun game :)

Keep up the good work!

Hi !

I get this error when I try to install the game (english version)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v645/y2kh8r/error.jpg

Any tips ? The game looks like it's very fun . I even posted a link to it on my blog. . .

^this is not a shameless plug , I swear !

I'm actually quite ashamed of it , thank you.

But I do really get the error message .. I suppose a screenshot is proof enough of that .. .

Wow, that's weird, I have not seen that one befor. That part installs some DLL's from Windows, that was not made by us, but by Microsoft. What version of Windows are you running there?

I'm running xp pro without sp2 as well . . .

I'm the guy who posted anonymously , by the way - I thought it might be good if I registered !

It looks like the error was caused by visual c++ ?

### #19Anonymous Poster_Anonymous Poster_*  Guests

My best guess is that you don't have Windows Installer 3.0 (or higher) on your computer, which is required for the Visual C++ Redistributable to install correctly.
