Concrete Genie is an action adventure game about a boy called Ash who discovers he can bring his paintings to life. As you might expect, given that our hero is an artist, a lot of the gameplay in Concrete Genie is about having fun with paint. Using the DUALSHOCK 4 motion sensor function, you can effortlessly create stunning landscapes that come to life and even make your own cast of unique creatures to hang out and play with. Our goal is for anyone to be able to paint in this game. The paint strokes you make on the walls will turn into beautiful living artwork.

PixelOpus previously worked on Entwined: http://www.post-gazette.com/ae/cybertai ... 1406280007

This sounds like a video game version of Penny Crayon.

Concrete Genie review - a bright and thoughtful exploration of some dark and difficult themes

Metro gave it 5/10: https://metro.co.uk/2019/10/08/concrete ... -10879445/

Hmmm.

Majority of reviews have been in the 7’s and 8’s which is what I was expecting. I am looking forward to playing it but it will have to wait until I get through Links Awakening.

Looks like a wonderful game that unfortunately doesn't get made much these days, for £25 it looks well worth it. The art style of the characters remind me of the Coraline film.

Finished the main story, just a ton of collectibles to get. What a wonderful little game, if a bit too easy.

It is like Coraline. The art style reflects that. Also there are dark plot stories, just like Coraline (although not as scary!) Also the painting gives off the vibrant colours like Pixar’s Coco.

Well recommended.

8/10

Great to hear! I liked it when it was first revealed. Too much on now but I will definitely get around to buying this.
