Drawn to Life is an [[NeedsMoreLove incredibly underrated]] video game developed by 5th Cell about a village inhabited by "Raposa," [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter small, furry creatures]] [[CartoonCreature supposedly meant to be foxes]]. The Raposa village you name later has been under attack by Wilfre, who covers the village in shadow (feel familiar, anyone?). Mari then asks the Creator for help. [[AGodIsYou You're the Creator]], and you draw a hero to help. This hero... well, you can draw it and it moves. Pretty cool gimmick. The hero must travel across the world, through the four gates in the village, defeating the shadow, returning the lost Raposa to the village, and collecting the missing pages of the Book of Life to restore the village to its former glory.

* CrystalDragonJesus: The games story carries a pretty strong Christian set of themed, what with the Creator creating a savior at the behest of a character named Mari to help save them from the shapeshifting [[SatanicArchtype Wilfre]] and his [[TheCorruption corrupting shadows.]] The second game ups the ante by having there be [[spoiler: A DreamApocalypse the villain is trying to stop, Mari losing faith in the creator and siding with Wilfre, and having TheReveal that the series events are due to a girls prayer.]]

* CowardlyBoss

to:

* CowardlyBossControllableHelplessness: In a unique fashion too; [[spoiler: The Mayor of the first game is stuck down by Wilfre in the woods and lies on the ground injured. If you know where to find the Mayor, all you are able to do is listen to his VisibleSilence and leave him to lie there until he is found by the other Raposa later on.]]
* CowardlyBoss: The parasitic shadow infesting the second boss - Deadwood - constantly runs about his body trying to get away from you.

A sequel called ''Drawn To Life: The Next Chapter'' has been made. The version for the Wii happens directly after Drawn to Life, but before Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter on the DS. The Next Chapter features a much darker storyline, incredibly improved drawing functions, better platforming, no arbitrary outlines where you can only color things in...

* FridgeBrilliance: Some of the Raposa saved in the first game are odd choices, to say the least: A pirate crew, an Indiana Jones expy, a vampire, a bodyguard... It all makes sense after TheReveal. [[spoiler: Mike is the young boy who thought this world up, so his subconscious is creating Raposa characters based on types of characters he likes.]]

* NeverTrustATrailer: The trailer made it look more like a gimmick game than the epic platformer we all know and love. Plus the woman's expression? EpicFail.

* MoodWhiplash: Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter's Galactic Jungle, a {{Cyberpunk}} place where there are millions of harsh laws all PlayedForLaughs, takes a turn for the worse when you realize [[spoiler: Click]] was behind the whole "government," and it only gets worse the further you play into the game.

In addition, it's much harder and faster-paced. What happens in it? Color is drained from the world and then... well.
