I really liked the idea, but found the actual pictures a little too hard ><

Fun game and nice execution! I think I experienced a bug where it thought my entire painting was wrong (exceeded 400 pixels wrong on a painting that wasn't too far off).

Very cool game. It went well until I lost $2k to some snob that didn't appreciate my fine art skills.

I really liked it, having to do all the actions yourself. But sometimes the mouse button would get stuck and I had to repeatedly click to let something go, which was a bit annoying. But awesome entry nonetheless!

Dude, that was way too hard. xD
It was fun though!

Pretty interesting, the payouts seem a bit too skewed towards extremes though. The first playthrough I didn't even come close to making a profit.

Sometimes objects don't respond when you click on them. It seems to happen more frequently the longer you play.

Great concept, and it was executed pretty well. I played with a trackball, but had no problem raking in cash. ;)

A few small suggestions:
1. I love the tactile-feeling UI, but the paintbrush should be a simple circle indicating where I'm actually going to paint; it's very hard to be precise because it's unclear where the paint will go.
2. The canvas image's torn edges can really throw you off since it looks like you're closer to the edge of the image than the game treats it.

Otherwise, loved it. Were you by any chance inspired by Jon Blow's Painter game? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAJ60gBBjjU

I'll let you know once I've ported this to Java 6.

Too difficult for me, but the idea is neat.

The controls were a little buggy, or I did not do something right. For instance I could not drop the paint brush that easily. Other than that, I really liked the idea, and playing the game was really fun!

My girlfriend laughed about me, but I'm an artist now. \o/

Very fun, but it just is depressing to see how bad i am at drawing stuff :D

Nice take on the theme, but I find the game a little hard :P

Very original concept, and very fun as well.

This is without a doublt one of the best and most fun games I've seen so far. Amazing concept in its semplicity and very addictive!

I was entirely horrible (there's a reason why I used ASCII art for my game :D ) but it's a very clever idea!

Fun game, a bit hard to get very exact with a mouse but that was no doubt the point. I liked it.

Very nice - I really quite enjoyed it. Great concept, well implemented.

Great game, just a bit work on the controls (took me a while to grasp it), but everything else was wonderful :)

Super awesome! Painstakingly reproducing a difficult work and getting rewarded really well for it is a great feeling. I definitely like how the rewards are heavily weighted towards very close reproductions - makes it really seem worth it to work slowly and carefully instead of just churning through sloppy work to make money.

Funny one ! And you made some great goodies like the possibility to paint anywhere :D

Liked the style and presentation- had a little difficulty with stuff getting stuck to the mouse, load / trash / purchase of canvas being automatically place would have been cool, I got fined heavily as I had trouble swapping between the brush and the canvas. Great idea though, would be cool to see it polished a little more - would make a great mobile game. :)

So hard to draw with mouse ^^ I like the concept. It could be very interesting for a mobile version ;) Great job !!

Amazing game haha, really innovative. I hated drawing circles because it's so damn inaccurate but really really good game. Kudos!

Perfectly fits to the theme. Extremely simple and intelligent. Congratz!

Cool concept. I like how everything is draggable and how you can scroll the view up to get back to the title screen. Although I found it a bit difficult to draw accurately with the mouse. Managed to get to level 14.

Haha, I earned 38k, my best was $2495. Reached lvl 52. Pretty fun.

May 11, 2013 @ 2:46am

Really liked this and I think you executed it quite well and did fair justice to the concept. Good job!

Very fun and really hard! And I do digital art for a living!

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
