Sketch Nation is a forthcoming iPhone app that takes iPhone photos of drawn images and uses them as avatars, obstacles and enemies in a customized fly-and-shoot mobile game. It's pretty sweet and was the winner of the recent AppsFire AppStar Awards for unlaunched iPhone apps. I was one of 20 judges for that contest and yes, I voted for SketchNation.
Check out these demonstration videos below and keep your eyes peeled for Sketch Nation to go live in the App Store. We have no idea if and when that will happen, but hopefully soon. This looks awesome.
It would be great to see other classic game-types that could be created using this same process (those old Nintendo hockey games would be fun to draw players for), but there's no indication yet whether that's part of the plan. SketchNation is also on Twitter, where we're sure they'll announce the availability of the app as well.
