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
