I'll let my son play this, but the words will say "See son, you don't really need an XBox."

Who'd have thought it would be so difficult to draw a key in a penis's hand?

Not bad. Bit like drawn to life.

What was that awesome stick fighting animation that was around in the early days of Newgrounds? Xiu Xiu?

I was going to j'accuse the lot of you for drawing a penis when it asked for a key.

Wow that was fun, thanks! Clever use and manipulation of sketch mechanics. I felt a little bit like the artist in the famous Looney Tunes Duck Amuck.

Draw a penis for every answer. Really.

I am so ashamed of myself.

Sometimes I feel strange that I'm the only person who doesn't draw penises in sketch programs, takes pictures of his junk with digital cameras, and generally leaves his technology un-dicked.

This is why it's probably a good idea virtual reality communities never took off and why the Internet should remain text-based for several generations at least.

Except for the porn, I agree with this. Images and video are usually useless compared to the purity of text.

And it's weird that you're the one that feels weird...and it's just how it is. Penises always make an appearance.

I agree entirely.

So does this one! Sort of. Warning: crayon and paper RPG.

I admit I liked this better when I thought there was more than one path through the game and the reason my balloon turned into an egg was because it was misshapen and not fully closed. But it was still pretty cool.

Of course the only proper accessory to give your stickman (at least to start with) is a halo.

I almost cried a little when it told me "that's not a ballon!" I was like, what, I can't even play a stickman game right?"

And then, I guess most people draw their stick people with one arm on each side, rather than with both arms reaching to the left of the page.

So my poor awesome stick guy defeated the dragon by backing that ass up.

This doesn't work very well if you don't play along. :/

I tried drawing an owlbear, and it just kind of spasmed and flailed around. This amuses me.

Are you sure?

it's alive! Unfortunately, like a Tamagotchi, mine will likely die soon.

OK, after the third time I feel I can venture a penis sword. Joke, joke! It's a vagina drain!!

I didn't draw a penis until it asked me to draw a sword. Then dragon got dicked in the mouth until death. Then I drew a UFO for the rain cloud.

I haven't gotten past the flood. I started over so I could draw a two-headed stickman with too many arms and legs and a better dragon-dicking sword-penis.

This is cool. To bad the system doesn't let you share the things you draw. Watching everyone else's creation would be awesome.

I also disobeyed their commands of what to draw! Because when they said "draw a cloud to make rain", I thought, I'm more creative than that!

I drew a Herne the Hunter type figure, with a giant triangle shaped man-chest, antlers, and skinny stick legs with a large penis dangling beneath.

Everything he said seemed that much more epic. "A box!" became a roar of herculean rage. "Draw a rain cloud" became a prayer to bring down the wrath of Thor. "Quick! Draw me a sword!" became a call to arms.

My guy had a penis by accident, and then I couldn't figure out how to undo it.

Kinda like real life, I guess.

Draw a stickman.

Stickman? I read it as dickman. Somehow it worked.

Ctrl-f, 'penis'

...

Okay, so i wasn't the only one.

I started trying to draw a boat even though it didn't tell me to do so. When it wouldn't let me, I got kind of sad.

Really enjoyed it except aparantly I can't draw stick people with my fingers.
posted by Katjusa Roquette at 9:45 PM on September 21, 2011


I tried again -- drew a sailboat instead of a key, a birthday cake instead of a balloon, a firetruck instead of a rain cloud, and a cowboy hat instead of a drain. Game stayed the same! Also my guy had hipster glasses and one foot.

Drawing a 20-foot sword does not permit you to stab the dragon.

I drew an egg as well. I was hoping for a yolk and some eggy soldiers, but got a dragon instead. Which was nice.

cromagnon: "Draw a penis for every answer. Really. "

I was quite proud of my cloud, which was a huge clump of pubic hair and testicles, out of which poked eight or nine penises.

Who'd have thought this beloved stick character would be so effective at fighting a dragon?

When the giant penis started raining and flooding the whole world, I knew I'd gone too far.

I always give my stick people rocket boots. So when it was all "draw me a balloon" I was like "bitch, don't you notice the upward-propelling flames shooting out of your feet?? I moved beyond balloon-assisted flight by kindergarten!"

Maybe I'm easily amused, but I did like how the dragon's breath burnt up the banner ad.

You know, my instinct was to draw my stickman with a sword, because you never know when your stickman might need a sword. And then I had to draw another one, and I was sort of disappointed.

Someone elsewhere observed that it's a bit odd to ask you to follow their specific instructions, but THEN get urged to "create something every day".

"following instructions" =/= "being creative."

This thread is surprisingly similar to the reddit thread. I'm honestly surprised.
