Scribblenauts: Elephants and Bazooka Fun

For those of you who may have missed it Joystiq recently had an interview with Jeremiah Slaczka. If you aren't sure who he is he's the Creative Director at 5th Cell, the company behind the new DS game Scribblenauts.

Well enough of an introduction, it's time to talk about the point of this post, the awesomeness that will be Scribblenauts. If you don't remember skip to the bottom of this post to see the embedded trailer of the game.

In his interview with Joystiq Jerimiah answered a question about emergent experiences they've found so far in development of the game. Below is his answer:

Have any items turned out to have emergent uses in-game that you didn't expect?

Oh, all the time. Last week someone gave a bazooka to an elephant, who picked it up with its trunk, and then Maxwell threw a rock at the elephant to see what would happen. Of course the elephant got upset and started shooting randomly to defend itself. It wasn't very accurate - it's an elephant using its trunk to shoot a bazooka after all. But after all those explosions Maxwell didn't survive the ordeal. Still it was pretty funny though.

Here is the trailer in case you forgot.

That has to be the coolest game I've seen in a long time. It reminds me of the old King's Quest games where you typed commands to make your character act. In too many modern games of this genre, you just hover your mouse around until it changes shape.

The elephants with bazookas comment is great. I like the cop with a doughnut attempt at the end of the trailer.

To be perfectly honest, this is by far my most anticipated game on any system. The creative freedom it gives players is amazing.
