…And Steam user Kirbyrocket has reached Artist Level 50! Big congrats to them, and everyone else who took part in the contest! The tablet is in the mail!
Thank you all so very much for playing. Happy Painting!!
Check it out! It’s awesome!
Get the game here:
Feb. 22 at Noon EST, The Painter’s Playground 1.03 is available. A lot has been accomplished in the past two weeks, and we couldn’t have done it without our awesome community of artists and collectors.
The funny situation I’m in: I want to link the patch notes in the current build, but I can’t link it until I post the patch notes, so the notes have to be posted *before* the build goes live…
Here are the patch notes, please read carefully, since it differs from the previous announcement.
We are working on our road map for The Painter’s Playground right now. We can do a small-to-medium sized update in about one month, or a larger one in about three months.
We’d really like to give you some new painting tools, we’ve had lots of suggestions from this thread. Getting them right will take time. And there’s also the Golden Gallery to think about, *and* an art gallery companion app on Android!!! So yeah, busy
Keep painting, spread the word, and enjoy!
Today at 130PM PST/430PM EST time, Steam user/YouTuber/Streamer will be Twitch Streaming The Painter’s Playground and will also be giving away 3 keys!
Follow along for some Saturday afternoon fun!
…And we’re off! Thank you again to all of our beta testers and supporters for making this game a reality. We are forever grateful.
To all newcomers experiencing The Painter’s Playground for the first time – WELCOME! We hope you enjoy your stay here in Painter’s Port. The community so far has been *wonderful* in every way possible. Bob and I will be quite active in addressing any issues, questions, comments, or concerns through the Steam forum.
Alright, now onto our two launch contests!
DLC KEY CONTEST
Create a LetsPlay video of The Painter’s Playground, and post it here on the Steam video tab in the community hub. It can be anything you want, as long as it’s at least 5 minutes long. Ideas for videos could include a tutorial, tips and tricks, or just you doodling. Once you’ve posted the video, either friend me on here (you can unfriend after I give you the key, if you would like, no worries), or email the evidence to Dorkoski at ohio.edu.
HUION DRAWING TABLET CONTEST
I will buy and send this Huion Tablet to the first player who reaches Artist Level 50. This contest will require some serious work – you’ve been warned haha 😀
The only caveat is that I have to be able to ship it to you through Amazon. If by some reason I cannot (or the shipping is insane), I’ll send you $20.00 USD through a Steam Gift Card instead.
Now we said we weren’t going to do save wipes – and we aren’t. BUT if you plan on going for level 50, we ask that you in-good-faith delete your current artist and start over to be fair to newcomers. Thank you!
Post your level 50 screen shot here on Steam and also email the link to Dorkoski at ohio.edu. We get an email when someone reaches level 50, but this will nudge me.
Thank you all for reading. Happy Painting!
Ryan and Bob
Next Zen Mechanics Limited
In the meantime check out this *awesome* LetsPlay:
We are *very* excited! A big thank you to all who helped beta test. We couldn’t do it without you. The artwork we’ve watched pop up on the database over the last few months has just been beyond expectations. We are also excited to welcome new artists to Painter’s Port.
Final Steam build approved! Launch is for realsies!
