Current projects include:
Project: de Blob
Syfy Kids and THQ Inc., are partnering to bring one of the most acclaimed video game titles of 2008 to life on multiple platforms. de Blob presents the adventures of the lovable yet edgy title character who must save the world from an oppressive monochrome future. Taking on the evil I.N.K.T. Corporation who has declared "Color is a Crime!" and leeched Chroma City of all its beauty and interest, it's up to de Blob and his underdog group of determined Color Revolutionaries to use their unique abilities to color the world back to life and free the citizens from a black and white future. Syfy will initially focus its de Blob development efforts on webisodes, television and consumer products, while THQ will publish new games based on de Blob across multiple gaming platforms.

Syfy Kids and THQ, Inc. are also working together to produce a game based on Syfy's hit reality series Ghost Hunters Academy. The first in a series of games designed to extend Syfy's television franchises to additional platforms, the GHA game will be released on the Nintendo DS, Apple iPhone and iPad platforms, and will feature players competing to become a member of the Ghost Hunters team. The iPhone version will also utilize the device's camera for an augmented reality feature.
