The Humble WB Games Classics Bundle has a lot of super-biff for cheap

Today's Humble Bundle - probably the PC gaming deal of the day - contains a lot of grimdark Bat-biffery, and a few surprises on the side. Seven games for (up to) $12, mostly comics-themed, but with some underappreciated stuff in there. Plus, the incongruously bright Bastion and the wildly weird and happy Scribblenauts Unlimited, all capped off with the complete edition of Batman: Arkham Knight…

Layoffs At Scribblenauts Devs 5th Cell

Scribblenauts developers 5th Cell have laid off 45 employees but, contrary to initial reports, the company say they're not closing down. 5th Cell had been working on a new mobile version of Scribblenauts, their series about solving free-form puzzles by drawing almost anything into existence, but its surprise cancellation left them overstaffed. The situation's a bit unclear at this point, but they had also been…

Scribblenauts Unmasked review

The adventures of Maxwell, and his notepad on which anything written comes to life, have proven quite the lucrative run of games for 5th Cell. This latest version - out on Steam now for a sizeable £27 - comes with a massive DC tie-in, pitting the kid hero alongside the biggest (and smallest) names in the comic universe. How does the format hold up in…

Create Very Silly Heroes In Scribblenauts Unmasked

I think, at some point or another in our lives, we've all needed a hero. Someone to swoop in, save the day, and then feed us warm soup until the tummy ache goes away. As kids, sometimes we even imagined them, conjuring them out of thin air like so many baddie-melting laser beams from our mind's eye. Scribblenauts Unmasked is kind of like that, only…

DC Miniverse: Scribblenauts Unmasked Is Really Real

Or at least, as real as tiny god people from the bottomless depths of mute rooster boy's imagination can be. But yes, the oft-rumored DC edition of 5th Cell's boundless bowl of alphabet soup - titled Scribblenauts Unmasked - is now official, and it looks to be quite the thing. Adam expressed concern that attaching an official license to Scribblenauts might leave players with a…

This Is Happening: Scribblenauts Sued Over Cat Memes

Here at RPS, we make a policy of loving Scribblenauts in spite of its flaws, and sometimes we use it to construct elaborate, oddly poignant superhero parodies. And yet, even before DC license announcements entered the picture, I was always impressed by how carefully the series balanced on the glossy lip of pop culture without falling into a bottomless well of legal troubles. No, it's…

Trade Paperback Writer: Scribblenauts DC

IGN bring news that the next Scribblenauts game, to be officially announced at E3, will use the DC license. Even without potential legal problems, Scribblenauts has always been somewhat shy of licensed characters due to Max's inability to summon into existence specific people and places, described by proper nouns. The series has previously included Nintendo characters, although only on the developer's own platforms, but otherwise…

Scribblenauts No Longer Arbitrarily Unavailable In Europe

Remember when Scribblenauts Unlimited simultaneously launched in all territories thanks to the lightspeed techno-magic of the 21st century? Well then, congratulations. You evidently live in a pristinely wound clockwork dimension where things actually make sense. Others of us aren't so fortune. Case in point: the entirety of Europe. While North America got the whimsically open-ended puzzler back in November, Warner Bros decided to shove its European release…

Scribblenauts Unlimited review

Scribblenauts Unlimited has now been released in both North and South America. It's soon out in Australia. And Europe's not getting it until next year, and no one will say why. Sigh. And that's a damned stupid shame, because it's a ridiculously lovely thing, that I'd will everyone to check out. If only the could. Here's wot I think:

Er, Where’s Scribblenauts Unlimited Then?

Scribblenauts Unlimited - the fourth game in the magical series - released on PC for the first time this week. Kind of. If you're a North American, you'll see the game available on your Steam account, and indeed the Wii-U version in your stores. But if you're outside of the former colonies, prepare to significantly increase the tax on any tea you might want to…

Squeeeeeeeeeeee! Scribblenauts Unlimited Coming To PC

Was this already a known thing? 5th Cell's absolutely amazing Scribblenauts series is finally seeing a version released on the mothership. No one had told me. The utterly magical platform-game-meets-actual-proper-magic is going to be on PC, as well as Wii U and 3DS, and Scribblenauts: Unlimited going to be using Steamworks to let you share the madness you create.
