Welcome to the doodle world! Armed with nothing but a pencil, play as Stickman as you explore a brand-new world. Solve intricate puzzles by drawing into the game, meet new friends while dodging scribble monsters, and make memories that'll never be erased!

Draw is a 2D sidescroller–an artistic story-rich journey of grief and acceptance through the doodles of Nathan, a high schooler dealing with the grief of a recently lost friend. As "Stickman," you will navigate a lined-paper world of fun puzzles and doodle monsters. You'll encounter different characters representing unique individuals in Nathan's life who play a vital role in his journey of self-sabotage, isolation, depression, acceptance, and recovery.
