What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While the game is already playable, it's quite raw. We plan on deepening current mechanics and implementing some new systems. There is still a long way to go in the evolution of the project.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until we feel it meets our standards. About a year or so.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We will continue to develop the game, add new card mechanics, locations, quests and characters. We also plan to add a system for sharing content created by users.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable and can be completed. It includes procedural level generation, 4 main locations, 300+ characters, and 300+ magic cards. Ability to draw any card or object in the game and re-voicing the characters.

You can easily play 50+ hours and have lots of fun.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No, the game is free to play.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are listening to all feedback we get, primarily on steam. The game has lots of raw, unpolished features, and the way we develop them can be affected by said feedback. If you feel like you have some cool ideas - please share them with us!”

About This Game

Sketch Crawler is a super-creative deck-building roguelike RPG, in which the Doodlers rescue the King of Cartoons from the evil plots of warlocks and tricksters. In this world, drawing is a real magic.

The Magic of Drawing
With just one click, you can redraw any object in the game: creatures, spells, walls, furniture, and decorations. Your drawings will be saved and used for further generations of the Sketch Crawler world.

The Мagic of Сolor
In the world of Sketch Crawler, colors have their own mysterious power. By adding a color to a creature, you can add new abilities and powers to it. By adding a color to a magic spell you can greatly enhance it.

Endless Fun
The procedural generation of dungeons and enemies gives you endless gameplay.

There is no need to kill to win here. You can let your enemy escape, the amount of loot and experience you get will not change.

Experimental Game
We are experimenting with letting players create whatever they want and make it matter in the game. We want to tempt players to draw.

A Place for a Scene
You will also be able to record voiceovers for all your characters and even for your enemies!

- Everything you draw appears in a procedurally generated world.
- Conquer dungeons with turn-based card combat.
- Build your ultimate deck from cards you find.
- Redraw found cards to give them new properties.
- Draw creatures and see them fighting for you.

What we try to achieve in Sketch Crawler?
Is it possible to mix drawing and gaming? Can comedic fantasy and user-generated content be mixed? Can there be a benefit to a computer game? Let's explore.

Sketch Crowler is a experimental game and we plan to experiment well with procedural generation, comedic cartoon fantasy and user-generated content. We think it can be fun.

Experimentation will keep coming. We're looking for a golden formula for a game that will come together into something friendly and holistic that will be a joy to play for years to come.

We don't know where it will take us. We believe that only by exploring the unmapped paths can we discover something new. Ideally, it's not demanding to hardware game, which will live, even without internet, just on the user's computer.

A little about the graphics of the game. The simplicity of the style of drawing in Sketch Crawler is our conscious choice. First, it is much more expressive and charismatic than realistic characters, secondly, it is much easier for players to add their own drawings in this world, they look more holistic, in a third, it is a meme graphics, and this supports the comedy of what is happening.

We chose a form of free play model with in-game purchases to give everyone a touch of the project and ensure its longevity. We are also looking for a good form of monetization. We know the difference between dark and light monetization and we are definitely on the light side. We think there should be a fair exchange between players and developers.

In our opinion, the phenomenon of beneficial games is an obvious fact. These games are games that develop the player and give him practical benefits in life. The game is not an escape from reality, but a way to discover abilities and take them into the real world. This is the kind of game we see in Sketch Crawler.

In Sketch Crawler the player practices his drawing skill. The game constantly tempts to draw. And the longer the player plays, the better he will draw. And it also develops his imagination.

Creativity will save the world, and Sketch Crawler will help with that!
