SYNOPSIS
DW is an adventure/RPG game set in a colorful world made up of drawings. You play as Jake, a human teenager who finds himself trapped in this world. Unfortunately for him, the people there don't take kindly to humans. Armed only with a mysterious paint brush capable of unique powers, you must find a way to escape from this world while avoiding the police through the use of disguises. Gameplay leans heavily into adventure game territory, with emphasis on completing side quests and interacting with NPCs. Side quests are unique and varied, ranging from things like running a store to fighting gang members. Rather than grind through fighting, you gain levels by completing these side quests. The battle system is decision-based, requiring you to use a revolving suite of tools, tricks, and abilities to get the upper hand on foes. Abilities change based on what disguise Jake is wearing in any particular chapter. There are six chapters overall, and the game is very story-centric. Each chapter has you exploring a different locale. There's also a post-game developer commentary mode.

CHARACTERS
  • Jake - A human boy who awakens in a world of drawings. Quick on his feet and not afraid to cause a little chaos if it benefits him.
  • Bill - The DAPD's deadly serious officer, and the one in charge of hunting Jake down.
  • Scoop - A journalist who frequently partners up with Bill. Has a kind heart and surprising knack for detective work.
  • O'Kendall - DAPD's chief of police, and the one who organizes the hunt for Jake.
  • El-Weirdo - A mysterious masked man who likes fire a little too much.
  • Leon - A private investigator with a mean streak. Not aligned with the DAPD, and seems to have his own agenda.


SETTING AND/OR WORLD DEVELOPMENT
  • DW takes place in... well, DW. It's a world of drawings, and weirdly mirrors real life in many ways. While the game takes place in only one of DW's three major countries (Drawing America), it's home to a lot of weird and colorful locales, from a bustling city to a town modeled after the Wild West. Drawing America enforces rule of law through its extensive police network, which works side by side with the Drawing America Military (DAM) to hunt down any and all threats to society. Unfortunately for Jake, that includes human beings.

The fact all the tiles are quite literally re-drawn and simplified, and thats the point of the setting, is charming in a way.

That's what I was going for! Wanted to make it feel like it was a world straight out of someone's doodles :) Thanks!

Feeling cute, might make an essay on the presence of Malaise in the gaming industry. idk
Just went to Metrocon here in Tampa Florida. My first anime convention. They had an anime chess battle and some funny impromtu comedy. The comedy was my favorite part. How is everyone?
I'm thinking about opening a "game in development" thread, though i'm not entirely sure yet. It's still really early in development, and most i have to show are assets or really chaotic map WIPs. There is a lot of story +the world itself though, and i struggle with converting all of my notes into readable text, and a thread might help...?
I see a button in a game, I press it. Cannot resist the temptation even if I know it's a trap.
