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.

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".

Not a bad game per se...

This game has such promise, as all games with such unique concepts do. And what a concept this one has -- draw the weapons for a random high schooler's doodle to wield in his quest to... finish the game? Some levels you can even design the enemies you fight. Sounds like an artist's video game dream.

While the concept is slightly off putting, since one might not necessarily be skilled at drawing via a mouse, the game itself is rather lackluster. Everything just feels so... unimaginative. Since this is a game based on fighting doodles, one would thing the ideas would be more fleshed out or varied. And the controls, simple as they are, are just plain clunky. That, or the bad guys' AI is. I'm not sure as to which.

The artwork that is there is of course well put together, and you wouldn't think the background music would be memorable but it gets in your head. Still, when everything is put together it doesn't make for anything exciting. It's worth a play or two, though, because It's not a terrible game. It's not even a bad game. It's just an extreme disappointment.

So it's basically Drawn to Life but with less customization, no story and more fidgety controls? It's okay I guess but another game did this concept better already. And had two sequels. Not really original.

Has potential

I really liked the idea that you can draw your own weapons and change your appearance by drawing hats but I have to say that the music was horrible .I would love to see another game like this but with more polished drawing system where there would be tools like put up 2 points and it makes a straight line.Overall I have a score of 6/10 . The idea is fresh and original but the game itself with its music and levels lower the score considerably.
