The mod you are trying to view has ceased development and consequently been archived. If you are a member of this mod, can demonstrate that it is being actively developed and will be able to keep this profile up to date with the latest news, images, videos and downloads, please contact us with all details and we will consider its re-activation.

'Drawn to be alive' is an adventure/stealth game where the player will have the control of a character made of paper, extracted from a picture by an incredible magic Ink. This Ink was created by a professor who sells the paper creatures at a very high price. The character was about to be destroyed when he suddenly awakes. This is where the game begins.

Our little paper boy is lost into this world. His goal is to find out how he got out of his own pictural world and how to get back into it. But he's small, fragile and he doesn't know yet, very expensive. He will have to be very discrete and careful. His physical condition is an advantage for that but also and inconvenient. He's able to hide behind pices of furniture, into drawings, slip under doors but the fire, the water and the wind and even worse the human beings will be his greatest threats!

About the mod progress, we've fixed some bugs and made a US version: menus, subtitles and installer. We've decided not to release it yet in the current state. We want to make another level.

The interest shown by all of you by being in the top100 gave us a boost to our motivation and we'll find the time to work much more seriously on the mod. Another member of the team will soon work in the same town as two of us already do.

We wanted to tell you about a new video of Drawn to be alive which shows the effects of the natural dangers on this fragile paper boy.

The smallest cigarette end, any source of fire may turn the character into a torch. The player has to help him extinguish the fire.

Tabacco can hurt! Burnt and still running

The water is very dangerous too! A simple drip of water may hurt and falling into a dirty pool will soak the paper. If the character's wet, the player has to find a source of heat to dry the paper.

Flying Wet

But a video shows much more than words, enjoy! Download at Moddb .

Thanks again for your support!

the project's still alive! We're working on a new level at the moment but I won't tell you more about it yet.

I'm in contact with Vasity. You'll soon be able to watch a video mixing gameplay scenes of the first and second level.

See you.

I was going through their forums and this member posted this, this was in reply to another posting saying that there hasnt been any news in a long time.

"Same about french forum, we have absolutely no news from project for a long time...
It seems that project members are in job practice for months already, and have no time for project, at least from what i "heard" Wink

I really hope they will finish the mod, because looks like great idea, but for now, we can only wait Wink

In fact, it seems that more than "practice", the two programmers are working in firms now, and left the project...

Seems that it was a school project, and they had to present a prototype to a jury (composed with professionnals from gaming industry) in june 2006.... But it seems that it won't go further, unfortunately... :/"

I hope this is not true. :(

Just wanting to say that i cant wait to be able to play this mod. The trailer just blew me away with how well all the ideas seemed to just work perfectly ingame. Oh and i was just wondering if their was any parts in the game where the player would be able to use the majic ink themseleves. eg. drawing a ladder to reach a ledge that is just out of reach or maybe even being ale to draw their own character.

UT04 is a bargain these days and there are more great mods on it than Drawn to be Alive. It would be worth getting it for this one solely, I believe. Get UT04 and enjoy some of the finest mods made to day. Unfortunately not every mod is played as much as deserved. Its always good to see some new players!
