We heard word this morning that the UK is getting its own localised version of Scribblenauts to accommodate the peculiarities of British vs American English. But how about Australian English?
I asked Warner Bros. whether any work had been done to localise Scribblenauts for an Australian audience. The answer is no, but we will be getting the UK version rather than the American. Makes sense, I guess, given our shared preference for the letters “u” and “s”… which I’ve just realised carries a certain irony.
So I want to test just how Australian Scribblenauts actually is. I know it does include some animals native to Australia (i.e. kangaroo) and certain objects we think of as our own (i.e. boomerang). But just how extensive is it?
Hit me up with your ideas of what things an Australian version of Scribblenauts should include and I’ll test them out and report back.
