Scribblenauts: Unmasked to Feature Every DC Comic Character Ever
We all love video games and comics, and the two have proven to blend well together over the last three decades. Now, D.C. Comics and video game developer 5th Cell are trying something completely different, by combining the D.C. Universe with the Scribblenauts gaming franchise.
If you’re not familiar, Scribblenauts is a Nintendo DS series. The games are about solving puzzles, but you do this by coming up with any word you can think of, and conjuring different characters and items with these words. Each word serves a different purpose, and you’d be amazed at just how many words are actually programmed into the games.
Now they’ve taken the Scribblenauts concept and mixed in as many DC characters as they could remember, and squeezed them all into Scribblenauts: Unmasked. The game features every character in the 80+ years of DC Comics.
Players assume the role of Maxwell, who is a Scribblenaut, and his sister Lilly who are sucked into the DC Universe. Players jump from iconic DC locale to locale, such as the Batcave and Metropolis, and save people by solving puzzles.
The game is difficult to explain with just words, which is exactly why there is video accompaniment. There’s more to this game than you’d expect, and if it’s like previous entries in the series, it’s going to be quite addicting.
