Stickman games are a popular genre in the world of online gaming, and here at Keygames you’ll find a large collection of fun games starring these adventurous stick figures. They may not be much to look at in terms of artist composition – just a couple of lines for a body and a circle for a head – but with the right music, animation, and story lines these characters can really bring a game to life. Check out the Xiao Xiao stickman fighting games, for instance, and experience how effective this basic and clean character design can be.
Stickman: a major player across the genres
Stickmen have made it into many of the major genres of online gaming, from stickman action and ragdoll games to shooter and sniper adventures starring stick figure characters. Part of the reason is that stickmen are easy to draw: anybody can put pen to paper and create one. They are often used to sketch out storyboards more quickly. Their very basic design makes them easy to animate, but you can also bring in some (pseudo-) 3D graphics and special effects to create something spectacular and visually engaging. This makes stickmen appealing characters for game designers to work with.
