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. Epic.

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?


    I was sold on Scribblenauts the day Kotaku posted up a quick preview of it. This just makes me salivate.

    This game might even make me recharge my DS. Poor DS doesn't get much joy now that I have a xbox 360.

    It's not a rooster hat, it's the hair of the character in Scribblenauts. I hope this game lives up to the hype!

    If there's never a PC version, I might just cry.

    Or buy a DS.

      Buy the DS anyway. I mean it has got a bunch of other great games besides Scribblenauts. Now if only I could find my own DS but it seems it must still be stuck in a box somewhere from my house moving that I haven't gone through...

    Given the level of interest in this game, I would like someone to directly ask the developers on whether the game is likely to appear on other consoles.

    If there's no word of Scribblenauts coming out on PC before launch, I may just buy a DS for it.
