Painters Guild is an upcoming PC game from indie developer Lucas Molina. The engaging browser-based alpha opens in Andrea di Verrocchio’s painting studio where a young Leonardo Da Vinci has just been apprenticed. It’s 1466 and Da Vinci and his mentor are working to complete commissioned paintings.
Click and drag to move artists, paintings and furniture in order to work efficiently on adorable portraits of the 8-bit patrons or on mini-versions of well-known paintings. (I noticed The Birth of Venus and The Creation of Adam, and I’m sure folks with a real art background could spot more.) When young Da Vinci is near his mentor he’s able to learn more too, but you’ll need to keep both artists hard at work in order to complete commissions before patrons get angry and storm off.
