Game idea/demo: The Artist
« on: 2006-10-05, 02:08:58 PM »
So I have a demo project of sorts. I'd like to get some feedback from you guys. Tentatively, I'm calling this game "The Artist." It's about a security guard in an art museum. Everything's going fine until "the thing" happens (all video games seem to have that "thing" that throws the main character out of his/her routine). Some sort of supernatural force (specifics still unknown) is taking the very essence from the artwork in the museum. The art's soul, if you will. This leaves the painting in a state in which it isn't quite the same. For example, in this demo, Van Gogh's Starry Night appears to be more of a day drawing.

Enough story for now. Long story short, you can use a paint brush (with the mouse) to use certain abilities within the paintings. Right now I only have red paint done, but I plan on having at least six colors which you can swap between with a right click.

I uploaded the file here.
