The Pitch: Scribblenauts Is Just…Epic

jeremiah-rooster-hatWe asked 5th Cell’s Jeremiah Slaczka to sum up Scribblenauts in just one word.

The Pitch is where a developer has to answer five quick-fire questions about their game in just 25 words or less. It’s all about their ability to hone down their game to its bare essentials and tell us precisely why we should be interested.

And hopefully, it’s a bit of fun for you guys.

So, lets hand it over to 5th Cell’s creative director and co-founder, Jeremiah Slaczka. Yes, that’s him in the rooster hat. Jeremiah, your time starts now!

Give me the Scribblenauts elevator pitch.
An emergent action-puzzle game where the player types in any they want words that create objects they can use to solve levels.

What sort of gamer is gonna dig Scribblenauts?
Everyone. Old or young, boy or girl, gamer or not.

What’s the first awesome thing I’ll do in Scribblenauts?
Help a little girl get her cat off her roof by riding a chainsaw-wielding Cthulhu while wearing a monocle.

What can I do in Scribblenauts that I can’t do in any other game?
See above.

Describe Scribblenauts in just one word.

Scribblenauts is due out on September 16 for Nintendo DS. How do you think Jeremiah fared? Are you sold on his pitch for Scribblenauts? And do you like his hat?
