First instalment of a six-part developer diary video series, recorded by 5th Cell’s Jeremiah Slaczka (4:31)
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released a video dev diary for Scribblenauts, a Nintendo DS game developed by 5TH Cell and scheduled for October 9th, 2009. In Scribblenauts, the player uses the Nintendo DS touch-screen to help his character, Maxwell, acquire the starite in each level by solving a series of puzzles. The twist is, in order to solve the puzzle, the player uses the stylus and notepad to write down the word for any object that comes to mind in order to reach the goal. Every object behaves as it would in the real world, and the player can combine countless objects together to create completely new behaviors. Every level has more than one written object to use as a solution, opening up the game to unlimited replay.
