    We're sure to get a ton of information and first hand game play accounts of this game after e3, so I figure I better jump on the bandwagon and start a thread to gather information on this game before it sweeps the web.

    Game info: Developed by 5th Cell, makers of Lock's Quest and Drawn 2 Life, the game is a puzzle/platformer featuring a unique mechanic. As you progress throughout the levels, you'll find obstacles blocking your path. In order to circumvent these hindrances, you have to scribble down a request for an item to blow through it. Find a bear in your way? Summon up some honey and it will be distracted, etc.

    First, here's the official Scribblenauts trailer:


    And second trailer with even more game play footage:


    Warner Brothers has licensed the game and has released some information about online wi-fi capabilities. It will feature some level editing features with the ability to control the relationships between items and how they react to other summoned items. Here's an article with more information about it: http://kotaku.com/5265732/scribblenauts-ha...ttle-bit-of-lbp

    Since the game is being published by a kid friendly company like Warner Brothers, all adult-themed items are currently removed from the game (or were never programmed to begin with), so no summoning of dildos or strap-ons. But here are a few articles about just how in-depth the item list is:

    http://kotaku.com/5261531/scribblenauts-stumpability-update
    http://nintendo.joystiq.com/2008/12/19/scr...he-totilo-test/

    Of course, with this much customization and variations of game play, a problem has arisen courtesy of DS Fanboy (with Screenshots!):
    http://nintendo.joystiq.com/2009/01/07/act...t-be-a-problem/

    Currently the game is scheduled for a Fall 2009 release. I'll continue to update this thread with any new footage, screen shots, developer interviews, or reviews as they appear.

    Interesting concept but bit too "kiddy" for my taste.

    Was about to create a topic almost the same as this one as I heard something about it on Destructoid. Looks really fun, although we'll really need to have it in our hands to get a good idea of how it'll play. Good work on the thread, it's well organised.

    This game looks interesting, but I can't imagine any possible way that it will live up to the hype they've generated around it. It just seems way too ambitious a project, especially for the DS. If it was a system where new objects could be routinely added, I could understand, but in a DS game it just seems impossible for them to be very exhaustive about it.

    This game can contain DLC! But you must go through strict checks of age [​IMG]

    I think if there were adult words, they could probably pw0n most other characters [​IMG]

    If 5th Cell have learnt something from Drawn to Life is that people like user-created content. if they're smart, they'll give us some ability to make our own objects and share them. They can also add DSi capabailities in the form of more objects. E.x. The game detects it runs on DSL, you will have 10 slots for objects (Like N+ slots). The game detects it runs on DSi, it will allow the player to choose slots depending on the memory available.

    I don't see the big deal about the adult words thing. I mean, summoning a rain of penises would be funny, but I can't imagine it being more fun than attaching a laser to a shark and having it fight a zombie.
