At last year's E3, everyone went absolutely ape-crap over Scribblenauts. Before the con, this DS game word-drawing puzzler was under everyone's radar, but quickly took the whole place by storm with its innovative gameplay. Today, Warner Brothers announced a sequel: Scribblenauts 2 will be available in fall 2010.
The big innovation: Adjectives! Scribblenauts 2 will allow players to add descriptors to their nouns, so rather than just draw Cthuhlu (my solution to all problems), you'll be able to draw "Vengeful Cthuhlu" or even "Vengeful, Constipated Cthuhlu." According to the game's official description:
"Adjectives can change the colour, size, elements, behaviours and many other aspects of the object they are describing. Multiple adjectives can be combined together to produce incredibly creative objects, allowing the player's imagination to run wild for a truly unique and individualistic experience."
Can adverbs be far behind??
I wonder if the excitement and hype of the first game can be matched for its sequel. I think a lot of the reason people dug it was because Scribblenauts literally was like nothing anyone had seen before, where a sequel, even with adjectives, is by definition very close to its source material. On the other hand, any game that rewards you for thinking of interesting nouns is awesome. What do you think?
