AND iOS

Passpartout: The Starving Artist is a game combining adventure game and life simulation, developed by the independent studio Flamebait Games.

Story

In Passpartout: The Starving Artist, players take on the role of a French painter who tries to earn a living (wine and baguettes specifcally) by selling the works he creates. The story depicted in three acts is full of humor, but it does not lack references to politics and pop culture.

Mechanics

The overriding element of Passpartout: The Starving Artist is painting pictures. The game gives us a modest set of tools (two types of brushes and spray and a basic palette of colors), with the help of which we create our works. The title does not limit what we have to paint - they can be landscapes, portraits, still lifes, or even abstract sketches of geometric figures; of course, we can give our paintings any name we see fit.

Nevertheless, the key to success is to match the diverse tastes of art connoisseurs who are our customers - for example, some will not like the colors we choose, others will like the brush size, while others will appreciate the length of subsequent strokes. It is somewhat complicated by the fact that, as in life, once painted, the line cannot be undone.

Technical aspects

Three-dimensional visuals of Passpartout: The Starving Artist present a decent level, relying on a pleasing cartoonish style. The game features a catchy soundtrack composed by Synkronosaurus.
