DOODLETRIP! The dream-like RPG about exploring childhood memories!
Built in Game Maker Studio 1.4, the game uses a 2.5D perspective with pixel art inspired by childhood doodles, giving it a unique visual style!
DoodleTrip takes place in a kingdom called "Pastelle", an imaginary world created from the childhood drawings of our protagonist, Wendell Lockhart.
As a kid, Wendell dreamed of becoming a cartoonist, and would draw his own comics about having adventures in Pastelle. He would imagine himself being there in that world, and would often get lost in it!
But as he grew older, he ended up losing his passion for creating bit by bit, until eventually he gave up on drawing completely. He forgot all about Pastelle...
Many years later, Wendell is now an adult and living on his own. One day, he finds a dusty cardboard box shoved in the back of his closet that he didn't remember having. Curious, he looked inside...
...and discovered a huge collection of his old childhood drawings!
At first he was surprised to see them, as he didn't think he had kept this many of them.
But looking through it all, he was reminded of his broken childhood dream, and considered shoving the box back where he found it. Despite this, he took the box out and decided to go on a little trip down memory lane.
There had to have been hundreds of doodles, sketches, and poorly-stapled comic books he had made in there. So many, in fact, that at some point he drifted off to sleep...
The last thing Wendell probably would have expected when he woke up... was that the REAL trip down memory lane was only just beginning!
Join Wendell and his three companions on a trip across Pastelle, to find a way for him to get back home to the real world! But don't get too comfortable, because it won't be a walk in the park...
Wendell learns that King Darkmore, the long-reigning tyrant of the land, has cast a curse over Pastelle, which has turned its once peaceful creatures into vicious foes! It seems the only way to lift the curse is to infiltrate the King's domain, "Darkfall Castle", and defeat him once and for all!
Coincidentally, the only known exit that leads back to the real world is in the castle, too... so if Wendell wants to get back home, he has no choice but to stop the King!
It looks like their work is cut out for our heroes! Will they be able to defeat the darkness? Or will its ever-growing shadow swallow them whole...?
