16 Attempts At Scribblenauts (Kotaku Preview)

"I am in possession of an early build of DS game Scribblenauts and an imagination. I mixed the two yesterday morning to try to clear one of the game's levels. It required multiple re-thinkings.

To set this up you need to know that Scribblenauts is a Nintendo DS game developed by 5th Cell and published by Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment, slated for release in the U.S. on September 15.

The 2D game's hook is that it allows players to type in just about any kid-safe concrete noun (no proper names), and the game will render it. Objects rendered can be used by the game's hero, Maxwell. Living things that are created have rudimentary intelligence, so a vampire might attack, say, a police man."

The story is too old to be commented.
