Every time you successfully create a new item you’ll be rewarded with the wit and wisdom of some of the greatest philosophers and comedians of all time. Unleash your inner god with Doodle God™!

Oh yes! It’s a “sequel" because it’s the second installment of the “Doom and Destiny series". It’s a “prequel" because it’s set in a timeline preceding the events of Doom & Destiny, BUT it’s also a “reboot" because while using the same premise and the four main characters, it tells a brand new story set in a different timeline and even dimension than Doom & Destiny.
