Back in 2009, a little game called Scribblenauts blew minds across the world with a single ambitious concept: you could make anything. By typing a noun on the in-game keyboard, you’d conjure that object into the game’s world. The game could recognize just about anything, from common (dinosaurs) to esoteric (Shoggoth).…
The Gameological Society had a simple idea: take the creatures, beasts and people from Scribblenauts and pit them against each other. See which thing, real or fictional, could kick the most ass.
I have a lot of action figures. Every once in awhile I like to pull them down from their shelves or out of their boxes. I admire each one. Maybe I'll pose then and take a few pictures. Then I get bored and put them away again. Playing Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure feels just like that.
The new Scribblenauts is out, so grab your dictionary and go on some wacky adventures with your fave DC heroes, or make some insane superheroes of your own with the game's editor—the PC community already seems to be having lots of fun with that. Above's the launch trailer, and here you can find our impressions.
Here's exactly how my short play session with the upcoming Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure went at the San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. "What about...DAMMIT!" Rinse and repeat.
There will be Supermen. Yep, in the plural.
Imagine a video game that includes 33 Batmans (Batmen?), 130 Green Lanterns and even Aztek The Ultimate Man. Imagine a game that, its creators say, includes ever super-powered hero or villain in DC Comics’ nearly 80-year history. That game is real. It's scheduled for a fall release.
People howled when word spread that the creators of Nyan Cat and Keyboard Cat were suing Scribblenauts over the unauthorized use of those memes in the series' latest game. Frivolous lawsuit! Bullshit! Well, think of it this way: Big Video Game is finally getting sued by the little guy—for copyright infringement.
Oh man. The guy who created Keyboard Cat (Charles Schmidt) and the guy who created Nyan Cat (Christopher Orlando Torres) are suing Warner Bros. and 5th Cell for using the two cat memes in their game Scribblenauts.
We live in divisive times. The public discourse is rife with bickering and malice, and yet there is at least one thing we can all agree on: Scribblenauts is adorable.
The Scribblenauts games are for people who like using their imagination, but what if using one's imagination didn't mean creating something new? What if it meant creating Scribblenauts versions of some of the coolest movies and games ever?
As your best guesses and Photoshop efforts had already worked out, the upcoming Scribblenauts Unlimited will feature cameos from some of Nintendo's biggest stars, including Mario, Link, Zelda and Luigi.
This image for the 3DS/WiiU-exclusive Scribblenauts Unlimited was teased by GameStop today. Who are they graying out?
When Jeremiah Slaczka isn't answering your questions here on Kotaku, he's running 5TH Cell, the game development studio behind Scribblenauts and other interesting games. There's a Scribblenauts on the Wii U and—wouldn't you know it—he would like to show it to you.
Scribblenauts will be coming to the Wii U in HD, giving players an insight into Maxwell's story. Players can use the Wii U touchpad to design and edit creations to add to the world, like the auto mutt shown, going above and beyond the previous Scribblenauts games' word entry capabilities. Scribblenauts Unlimited…
The App Store's rotten with platformers. Everywhere you turn, there's some developer revisiting his or her childhood with their own take on the hoppy/jumpy left-to-right adventure genre. Many of these stink or are otherwise unremarkable. But 5th Cell's Run Roo Run is different.
The iPhone iteration of 5th Cell's magical word puzzle game gains voice control on the 4S, integrating Siri's voice recognition technology in Scribblenauts: Remix to make you say things like "Giant Flying Kielbasa" in mixed company.
The premise and the promise of Scribblenauts always was extraordinary: write any noun (concrete noun, no proper names) into the game and the virtual object it represents will appear.
