Welcome to another edition of Geek-Offs, where you'll find the perfect distractions to help you muddle your way through hump day each week.
Sitting in meeting after meeting all week, your mind probably wanders a bit. Chances are there are some pretty sweet doodles to be found in the edges of your TPS reports (and don't get us started on the cover sheet).
Well, if you wanna see your masterpieces do more than just line the recycling bin, then this week's Geek-Off, Sketch Quest, is your live-action doodle heaven.
Not your typical platformer, Sketch Quest is a fun side-scroller where your doodling skills are a requirement. You have to design your own weapons (melee, range and throwing weapons) with the handy dandy sketch tool. Though the game gives you outline ideas, take all the liberties you want, because there are few things more entertaining than shooting enemies with a giant rainbow popsicle.
Fight douchey football players, killer bees, rabid penguins and enemies of your own creation (your stick figure fighters may not look very menacing but damn, are they hard to kill with smiley faces) and search for secret doodles as you make your way through the levels.
