E3 '12: Scribblenauts Unlimited

Nintendo pleased a great many fans during its E3 2012 press presentation when it revealed the development of a new Scribblenauts game for the Wii U called Scribblenauts Unlimited. As an aside, they also mentioned that it would also be ported to the 3DS, but it also turns out this one's coming to the PC as well!

Scribblenauts Unlimited will have you helping Maxwell solve puzzles and challenges by summoning objects as varied as anything your twisted mind can come up with, but this time around, the game will actually offer up some of the hero's backstory, with information about his parents, twin sister Lily, and how he aquired this magical notepad.

"Bringing Scribblenauts Unlimited to new consoles lets players become Maxwell and experience the game play in entirely different, inventive ways," said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "On Wii U, for example, the game is further enhanced by the touch screen on the new controller giving players an innovative way to interact with the action and a simple way to type in the word of his or her desire."

Both the Wii U and PC versions of the game will feature a brand new "Object Editor" that takes the creative gameplay to the next level by allowing you to make, name and share your creations online. You're no longer limited to what's in the in-game dictionary. Now you can create your own objects from scratch or customize any in-game object by tweaking it however your fevered brain desires. You can then store these creations in Maxwell's "magic backpack" for future use.

Scribblenauts Unlimited can also be played cooperatively with your friends in local multiplayer on Wii U. That's all Warner Bros. and 5TH Cell are saying at this point, but don't worry, they'll surely have much more to say between now and the game's "holiday" release date, so we'll pass the info along when we get it!

As much fun as adjectives were in Super Scribblenauts, I couldn't help feeling that the game had moved away from being a sort of "action puzzle" game toward being a "crossword puzzle" game -- the point wasn't to do something so much as to think of the correct word. Everyone was like "Finally, you can move Maxwell with the D-pad!" but... how many of the levels actually require you to move around?

This new game kind of interests me, but the reason is something that I've only seen hinted at in the trailer and the tagline "Imagine Anything. Explore Everything." The impression I get is that they're moving away from the sorts of levels the first two games had and making it more a sort of exploration game.

I'd like to hear more about what you do with your super powers this time around before getting too excited.

1) Hopefully they include Steam when they says 'PC release'.
2)Yay Scribblenauts!
3)Create your own objects? Must be moderated surely... if only to prevent the cock goblins and venus fly vajayjays that will no doubt be made in abundance.

Scribblenauts is such a fun game. I played it in my iPhone and loved it. The new Wii U addition looks like its gonna be gorgeous and even more fun to play. I gotta get us another 3DS for when it gets ported so I'll have someone to play with in the co-op mode.
