Sketch Quest is an action-platformer that uses a unique drawing mechanic to have the player customize their character. You control a character in a high-school student's notebook and earn/draw weapons and enemies as you advance through the levels.

This project was developed by five students at the Vancouver Film School Game Design program over 3 months.

Needs more polish.

I give props to the author. I think the idea of drawing your own weapons & such is a great idea. It allows you really be creative & it makes the game a bit more fun. That's a cool innovation I appreciate.

The game itself is a bit of a clunky platformer. The controls are a bit awkward (meaning slow to respond) and the flight trajectory of your thrown weapons is tough to aim - especially when things are coming down on you.

I think that this is a good alpha version, but it really needs a bit more polish to make it great. Keep working on it! Once again, thanks for sharing a new idea with us!

This is so amazing...

...but extremely glitchy. After passing level two, the game decided that I didn't need my throwing apples any more, even though it had a sign stating that I could use them on that level. No big problem.

Then it would not let the "Press E to Doodle" sign go away. Even after I came across another place to doodle, it still kept it up.

The final straw was when it decided that enemies, like bees and cars, did not need to be stopped by solid objects.

I wanted to enjoy it, but the glitches became unbearable. It's such a great concept, so I think if you tweaked it (as well as worked on the sound effects), you'd have a really addicting winner!

Where's the separate sound options?

Your sound effects are nice (though the voice acting does get spammed sometimes), but overall they were funny and creative.

However, your music was awful.

Next time please put in an option to mute the sound and music individually, instead of both.

Good, but...

Not particularly original. A little too much like the Drawn-to-life franchise except adding increasingly irritating music and sound effects and little to no storyline. I enjoyed it, but yes, not as unique as you would first think.

However, the style of gameplay was original and I liked it how the background gave the feel and theme of a notebook with its unrelated drawings for platforms.

Pet dislike: The car bomber's voices drove me to the edge of insanity. "Pilot to bombardier".
