Massive layoffs hit Scribblenauts developer 5th Cell

It feels like 5th Cell never really caught on after Scribblenauts. It had a string of 'naut ports, but Hybrid didn't hit it big, and neither did anything else, for that matter. Sadly, the studio has announced that it has let 45 people go to...

Second Fig crowdfunding campaign Anchors in the Drift failed to meet its goal

Scribblenauts developer hopes for $500,000 on Fig for its next game

I took a break from the crowded show floor of San Diego Comic-Con to relax for a bit with the latest build of 5th Cell's upcoming game, Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure. Scribblenauts has always been one of those games that's easy to pick up but hard to break away from, but the new superhero twist in this latest game gives us even more to get lost in.   read

Top Ten THQ Games
When assessing a publisher's impact on the industry, we tend to focus on the highs rather than consistency. THQ was anything but consistent, putting out Nintendo DS shovelware, rushed licensed games, and taking part in one of...   read

Scribblenauts Unlimited
The problem with a game like Scribblenauts is that the promise of boundless freedom comes with strict boundaries. A game that promises you can conjure any item in existence to solve puzzles can be broken pretty simply in a wo...   read

Mega64: Selling ONE PERSON on Scribblenauts Unlimited
