One-man indie masterpiece Your Doodles Are Bugged! Steams ahead

26 APRIL 2011 LEAMINGTON SPA, UK Your Doodles Are Bugged! is the amazing creation of master indie developer Johannes Hubert (Spyn Doctor Games) who designed, coded and drew all the art for the game himself– a true one man operation. Already a hit on Xbox Live Indie Games, the PC version of YDAB features new levels, new gameplay modes, achievements, Leaderboards, online game saves and an in game editor that allows players to create and share their own custom levels online. These custom levels can be created either using the in-game art, or by loading your own images as backgrounds that the bugs can then interact with.

Your Doodles Are Bugged! is a game with a lovingly hand-doodled art style and unique gameplay. Follow the story of Doodleus, the Master Doodler, who has accidentally hexed his pet bugs into his doodles during a magic explosion in his studio. Your job is to grab the magic pen and draw new lines into the doodle, changing the layout, building roads, bridges and stairs that allow the squeaky-voiced bugs to reach the honey pot and their route to freedom.

Find out if you've got what it takes to become a Master Doodler with the following features:

-          1000s of cute fluffy bugs to save from a fate worse than death

-          24 levels of dastardly doodle fun

-          Portals, gravity inverters, magic mirrors and deadly ink

-          Create and share your own levels online in Doodle Studio

-          Unlockable bonus doodles

-          Free-to-play arena

-          Steam Leaderboards and Achievements

-          Steam Cloud save support

-          Can you uncover the secret of the Blue Bug?

" Your Doodles Are Bugged! is easily one of the most fun and creative games I've had the pleasure of playing since Lemmings,” says Neil Holmes, Blitz 1UP’s Producer.“It's been an absolute joy to help bring Johannes' vision to Steam. Buy this now– you won't regret it!"

Adds Spyn Doctor Games' Johannes Hubert:“As a game developer, I believe that a few bugs can only make a game better. With Your Doodles Are Bugged! I’m happy that I can contribute a game to the Steam library, which will give players the ultimate bug experience - I hope that they will enjoy this buggy invasion of their computers.”
