Scribblenauts is an upcoming game for the DS where you solve puzzles and beat levels by writing the names of items you want to use. Upon writing them, they’ll magically appear in front of you and you can use them how you wish. Need a ladder? Write “ladder” with your stylus. Need a gun? Write “gun”. Need a freaking dinosaur? Write freaking “dinosaur”.
I heard about this game while a couple weeks back when some guy came back from E3 after playing the game and wrote a post about it on NeoGAF. It went like this:
I had played all the big titles at E3. Private showings of God of War III, Heavy Rain, Alan Wake. But at 4:00 on Thursday, I was wandering around the show floor, wondering what else I had to see. I saw a small little booth for "Scribblenauts!" in the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment section. I mean, who goes to that booth? But I remember hearing about it on GAF, and so I decided to check it out.
Best game of E3? Without a fucking doubt. Anyone who says otherwise did not play Scribblenauts. Best game of all time? Jesus Christ, I don't know, maybe. It's a game that challenges your IMAGINATION. No other game has ever done that.
So listen to this story. I was in the early levels; I didn't quite have an idea of how ridiculously in-depth the database was. I was summoning things like ladders, glasses of water, rayguns, what have you. But I reached a level with zombie robots, and the zombie robots kept killing me. Rayguns didn't work, a torch didn't work, a pickaxe didn't work. In my frustration, I wrote in "Time Machine". And one popped up. What the fuck? A smile dawned on my face. I hopped in, and the option was given to me to either travel to the past or the future. I chose past. When I hopped out, there were fucking dinosaurs walking around. I clicked one, and realized I could RIDE THEM. So I hopped on a fucking DINOSAUR, traveled back to the present, and stomped the shit out of robot zombies. Did you just read that sentence? Did you really? I FUCKING TRAVELED THROUGH TIME AND JUMPED ON A DINOSAUR AND USED IT TO KILL MOTHERFUCKING ROBOT ZOMBIES. This game is unbelievable. Impossible. There's nothing you can't do.
Holy fucking shit.
How freaking amazing is that? The database of things you can summon is so crazy. It has almost anything you can think of. A dang time machine! What the crap. Check out the guys from nintendorks.com summoning GOD (and Einstein):
Now I wish I still had my DS so I can play Scribblenauts. Its going to be amazing when it comes out this Fall.
Thanks Roger, for reminding me to post about the bestest game ever.
