What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is in alpha stage now. Buying it on Early Access program supports my ability to continue the development. I'm also eager to hear new ideas from the Community regarding gameplay, level design and interesting things a player can draw.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I was planning to finish the game within a year but that was 2 years ago... I have to attend a full-time job now so can no longer dedicate a lot of time to the game development. This game remains one of my favorite hobbies however. I do some progress on it, slowly though.

Given the above, my new estimate on releasing the full version of the game is by the end of 2019”

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

“The full version of the game would have:
- more levels, puzzles and challenges
- more things to draw
- a better recognition of user drawings
- improved graphics”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Current game version has 6 playable levels (+1 one hidden level) and around 40 items a player is able to draw”

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

“I plan to gradually raise the price as I add new levels, and more drawable things, improve the drawing stuff, etc.”

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

“I found the Community feedback very useful during the Greenlight process, so I'm looking forward to your new ideas and game discussion during the Early Access stage”

“Most impressively, there are multiple methods for solving puzzles (provided you can get the game to recognize your sketches)”

About This Game

Play as an artist looking at a painted world. You're able to create new items in this world by simply drawing them. Use your own imagination to lead a stickman character through a variety of puzzles by drawing things he can use. There’s always a few ways to solve each puzzle.

Drawn Story is a puzzle/adventure video game about a world painted on a sheet of paper. You control a stickman character living inside this world and an artist with a pencil in hand looking at the paper from above. As a stickman, you can walk, climb, jump and use different items. As an artist, you are able to create new items in this painted world by drawing them.

Your stickman is always in need for some handy items to have his problems solved. Draw a saw and the character would go cut some wood. Or draw him a whole boat so he would not have to use the saw. Draw an oar and he would get a boat moving. Draw a key to open a locked door. Or draw an axe to crush through this door. There’s always a few ways to deal with an issue.

In Drawn Story you need to lead the stickman through a variety of puzzles: board ships, make your way past guards, explore castles, save princesses, escape giant eagle nests and so on. Your common sense and imagination will be your best buddies. Little drawing skills are required to create new items. After all, you’re just playing an artist and you don’t have to be a real one. But no one stops you from enjoying your drawing either.
