Draw a Stickman began with a very simple idea. What
if you could draw a stickman and he would come to life? In 2011 we launched the
website drawastickman.com an interactive adventure where you were able to do
just that. Your stickman would then become a hero in a short story where you
faced an assortment of imaginary obstacles and overcame them by drawing a
variety of things to help you.
Due to popular demand, Draw a Stickman Epic is taking that concept to a whole new level by creating a full length game!
Draw a Stickman Epic is an iOS and Android game that
is all about creativity. In fact, you begin the game by drawing your own hero!
Gameplay is based on using various pencils provided to draw into existence
tools and elements to help you overcome the obstacles that you may encounter.
Each new level presents you with new creative
problems and puzzles. You will meet a fantastic assortment of imaginary
creatures that will hinder, or help, your progress through the game.
Draw a Stickman Epic is so unique in its game play,
instead of collecting items and hitting switches to progress through each
level, you are in direct control over your surroundings through what you create
with each new pencil given to you. Your own drawings come to life and help you
on your quest!
The great thing about Draw a Stickman Epic is that
you don’t have to be an extraordinary artist to enjoy this game. It is an incredibly rewarding experience to live and
play in the Stickman world where your own creations become the characters and
tools that populate this imaginary world.
We have pulled the best elements from many popular
genres like RPG, adventure, and puzzle games to create an entirely new gaming
experience. We don’t limit you to a single path to follow. Instead we drop your
Stickman in the middle of an impossibly huge world where you are encouraged to
explore and to create to complete your quest! There are many ways in which you
can complete each level, each path taking you to a completely new area to
speed up development we created a specialized Hitcents "game engine."
Our engine allows us to design all of the animations, level layout,
events, triggers, etc. using Adobe Flash and then export them to a
proprietary format. That data is then interpreted by the cross-platform
engine written in C# that runs on Mono or the .Net framework. The
animators setup game events, define how drawings affect elements, and
create interaction - all from within Flash. This allows us to rapidly
develop large, complex new levels that run super-fast across multiple
