UPDATE #1: When you donate you can either send us your stickman drawing or email your photo and our talented artist, Annie Erskine will draw you as a stick person!
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 explore.
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 platforms.
Our Rewards focus on the same creativity we want to encourage in our game. Every backer gets the opportunity to submit a stickman. The stickman drawings will be reviewed for appropriateness and each approved stickman will be used to produce these incredible rewards which include:
• Desktop wallpapers
• A poster showcasing a level from the game
• A deck of stickman playing cards with a different stickman on every card
• T shirts and more!
Some of our other rewards include the opportunity to play an early beta version of our game and provide feedback, even the possibility to help design a level!
We will also be releasing a hard cover book full of concept art and articles that will track the development of this amazingly unique game.
Backers who support us with $10,000 or more will also be able to participate in our official launch event at the Wired Live Expo in November of this year! Space is limited, so hurry!
The money we raise will be used to hire additional creative people to help program, animate, increase the quality of gameplay overall and to get Draw a Stickman Epic to you sooner!
Remember to be creative every day and thank you so much for your support!
