London-based System 3 are finally bringing back their much-loved blue blob, Putty, this summer. He will be starring in a remake of the unreleased Commodore Amiga platform action-adventure, Putty Squad.
The critically acclaimed Putty first made its way onto gamers screens on the Amiga in 1992 and now the old-skool hero, Putty, returns to celebrate System 3’s 30th year anniversary. In Putty Squad he returns to take on a quest to rescue his kidnapped friends in a reinvigorated and reimaged modern platform game.
The game was originally slated for release on the Amiga back in 1994 but despite amazing reviews and a demo it was never released on the system. It did however eventually make it onto the SNES and SEGA Mega Drive.
