Miah: Wii U version is the 'definitive' version, Unlimited not possible without it

As we move into post-E3 coverage, we're finding more and more articles and interviews crop up. This one, over at VentureBeat, has a number of choice quotes from Jeremiah Slaczka, co-founder and lead designer for 5thCell.

"With the new object-creation feature and the possibilities it leads to, he calls Scribblenauts Unlimited for the Wii U “the definitive version of Scribblenauts."

"With the Wii U we’ve been able to make the game way bigger, because with the object creation—putting all that stuff together—the DS just can’t handle all that stuff…even the Wii couldn’t handle it, but the horse-power of this can really handle it."

“See that?” he said pointing to the screen, “That’s a giant plant tank that shoots hippies—a hovering plant tank.” Sure enough, on the screen was a giant tank made of plants floating around the screen.
“That’s what Scribblenauts is all about. It’s just absolute wackiness, like, do whatever you want, and I want it to be like that, so I’m happy to see that people are doing all kinds of crazy stuff,” he said.

Screenshots detailing Maxwell's family and more

Thanks to GameZone for posting this set of new Scribblenauts screenshots. Below you'll find some sandbox play, artwork showing off Maxwell's enormous family, and the equally big world map.

uh...I mean...did they...did they all come from the notebook or what?
No doubt a nod toward the classic Mario world maps

Here, have a bunch of E3 Scribblenauts Unlimited videos!

Videos are rolling in from E3 of people playing the game. Unfortunately many of them are really basic - you won't be finding the next God vs. Kraken here - but they give you a good idea of the scope that they're going for.

Official site opens up, lots of new screenshots

Not sure when it popped up, but the official site can now be clicked on and enjoyed. The trailer is the same as E3, but we do get some juicy new screenshots!

A wild west theme. Meets aliens. And uh, a crashed jet plane? Wild Wild West 2 confirmed 

Phantom of the Opera meets Cubivore. Meets an elephant.

Yeah, ok, like the guy in the $3000 banana suit would travel on anything but a giant ape. COME ON.

Ok, I understand this is probably a Monty Python reference, but that rabbit is freaking me out

Out of everything in this shot, I'm most shocked by the rib cage to the left. What's his deal?

Coming to TLC this Fall!

I think we've all had this nightmare before, eh?

Cat + Bread =. Antigravity?

Here's something I never knew of before. Thanks to GameFAQs for letting me know how to recreate this.

We all know cats land feet first, and of course buttered bread always lands on the buttered side down. So what happens when you attach a piece of bread to a cat's back? How will fate determine which side it falls on?

Let's find out.

First step, cat:

Next, bread:

And then:

Result? Black hole. Of course!

Very clever, 5TH Cell. Very clever.

SupScrib appears to be *done*, will be at Comic Con, and shares new artwork

Haven't had a "combo post" in a long time...mostly due to lack of news. But today has been strangely eventful!

First of all, I follow a few 5th Cell devs over on Twitter. For their privacy I won't share them here, but it would seem that Super Scribblenauts has entered the production stage. For the past few days they've been discussing getting the bug count down. Last night it appeared they squashed the last one.

Don't get too excited, though. The release date remains October 26th. Why is it done so early? Production is an ugly beast, requiring a lot of time and effort to ramp up the product and the marketing. Still, I'm extremely happy for 5TH Cell that they were able to finish up what was probably a very stressful time!

Then again, they may just be talking about finishing up a possible demo build for Comic Con, as the game will be there this year. If it's not an updated version you can expect it to be the E3 build. With more real people and less press you can expect more varied hands on impressions. Make sure to stick here for the latest, or simply visit Comic Con if you have the chance.

Finally, Warner Bros has shared a new set of artwork for you to use as wallpapers. It shows off the adjective system in the cutest way possible. Check them out here.

All around good news
