Stop What You’re Doing & Play Strip ‘Em All – Free, Online, Right Now!

Stop What You’re Doing & Play Strip ‘Em All – Free, Online, Right Now!

Okay, so fans of comics and video games don’t often have very much in common. There’s almost no crossover between those two camps, as evidenced by the complete lack of any comic-related content ever having been translated to interactive electronic form.

(Cough.)

Yeah, clearly kidding. Comics and games collide frequently, and sometimes in wonderful ways!

Athletic Design’s Strip ‘Em All, however, offers a pretty innovative twist on that combination.

In Strip ‘Em All, playable for free worldwide right now on Athletic Design’s website, you’ll use your brain (and, um, fingers) to switch up panels of a comic strip to change the meaning and reveal the inner nature of its characters.

Ever wish you could change parts of a story? Rearrange things a bit? Maybe turn the good guy into a bad guy?

I’ve tried Strip ‘Em All, and it’s a very interesting, brain-teasing puzzler. You’ll have to rely on logic and creativity, and there are new twists all along the way to keep things fresh and gripping.

Strip 'Em All - 01

When you play the tutorial, it all seems so simple. Then the game starts…and you really see the brilliance of the concept in action.

I highly suggest you give it a try for yourself.

Supported by the Culture Administration in the City of Lund, and featuring beautiful artwork by renowned Swedish comic artist Daniel Ahlgren, this highly unique and interactive point-and-click experience developed by Ola Hansson takes comic-creation to new levels. With its seven comics and intuitive tutorials, players are initially guided through the process of moving and changing the content of comic panels. From there, the real challenge begins as stories such as *The Little Cynic*, *The Narcissist*, *The Egocentric*, and *The Self-Destructive* offers increasingly complex storylines, but also great incentives, rewards and new mechanisms along the way. Ultimately, it is your objective to recreate each story to match what the developer originally had in mind.

A groundbreaking new concept in interactive gaming, best experienced first-hand.

I will second that sentiment.

Best experienced first-hand, indeed. You will be sucked in by this strange, intriguing game – or your money back!

(Heh. Free.)

There you have it.

  1. Thanks for the write-up, Tony!
    We are working on additional comics for the game. The next one – “The Obsessive” – should be ready in a week. We’re also working on score based game comics based on classic arcade games like Pac-Man, Track & Field and Donkey Kong. They will be similar to Strip ‘Em All but also feature animation, time pressure and other more gamey mechansims.
