It may look like a childish game at first glance, and it indeed may be considered as such. However, I'm 23 years old and I found it quite entertaining. Between two violent games, I just wanted to use my imagination and create my own universe and items; which the game does very well!

All in all, the game is repetitive if you don't use your imagination. I'd give it a 8 out of 10.

A must-try !

A game with lots of creativity. You control a boy who can turn anything to life by writing it on his notebook. Lots of crazy things to do in this game like shooting down a building with "Destroyer", turning a lizard into a Ice Dragon and make him fight a "Flamethrower Soldier", building a school underwater, make a health potion and drink it if you are hurt and low on health, add dead as an adjective... Instant death! and more fun and crazy stuff to do. The art design is nice. And lots of variety in characters and customization. Its more like a sandbox game where you can do anything you want. Also has cool story. Its not a game for Everyone though. You might get bored of it quickly if you don't like these kind of games. And...! You can get past most of the game without killing people! Type "Sleepy" or "Sleeping" as adjective insteed! Had a great time in this game. Will play more.

+ Creativity at Its Finest
+ Great Art Design
+ Lots of Characters and Customization
+ Improve Your Spelling Skills! :P
+ Good Story
+ Makes You Think
+ Truely Open World
+ Lasts Long

- Not for Everyone. Some People Might Get Bored of It Quickly
- Resetting the Whole level After the Death of a Quest Related NPC for Level Completion. Respawn Feature Would Have Been Nice...

Before I downloaded this game I though meh, just another cartoon game I'll play to get trading cards or something like that, boy was i mistaken, this game is awesome, and well worth whatever I paid for it, the game allows a crazy amount of creativity when approaching your missions and has some pretty easy achievements especially with guides, definitely recommend to everyone just for a fun time.

This game just makes me happy when I play it. It's fun and I laugh a lot while I play it. Do you really need anything else from anything?

It's not a difficult game by any stretch as a simple story game of collecting stars to help save somethign from something with a lot of cool/cute art and object making. It lets you use your imagination to create an enormous amount of objects to just drop into the world and play with. Want a monkey? How about a GIANT monkey? You can make one and then ride it. Hilarious notebook? Sure. It will make every NPC that it passes by laugh. Create a Living Garden Gnome riding on a Tiny Goat. You can even create NPCs that will fight with one another, or even jsut play nice. Using adjectives in front of objects makes them even more interesting than they already are.

You can save objects you create in your backpack for easy access, you can get objects created by other Steam users in the Workshop with simple in-game menus and a couple clicks. Tons of user created stuff is amazing and hilarious so make sure to spend a good amount of time in the Steam Workshop for this game.

This is a Family Friendly game that anyone with a soul should play and enjoy. If you are a ginger, well we know you have no soul, but even YOU would probably be able to find some joy here.

It's an easy 100% Achievements game and they just take the time of finishing all the stars mostly and making objects they tell you to. Trading cards as well of course.

Fun and hilarious casual game for all ages!

NOTE: If you look at the credits and use the Developer's names to create in-game characters they will all appear in the game with some sort of special attribute. One dev NPC has the ability to turn every hat you put on them to spawn wings that you can take and fly with for example. There are a ton of these and it is fun to mess around with. You can view the credits at any time so write down some developer names and experiment in the game. :)
