This is a unique multiplayer that puts you in the seat of a blob. The objective is to absorb smaller blobs to get bigger until you eventually grow big enough to absorb other players. But be warned!

It’s a strangely addictive idea that’ll have you saying “one last try” to yourself for the better part of an hour.
