We've been greenlit!
Release date: December 2016
Play it here, 100% free

In Canvas The Gallery, you are given an empty gallery, a spray can and let loose. You can paint whatever you want, and people will come and view your drawings. Share your galleries with your friends, or upload your own pictures and have them shown in your gallery. Featuring music by Chopin that will adapt to your painting activity.

Each gallery in Canvas The Gallery is a convenient folder, with all paintings available as .pngs. It is very easy to share your galleries with friends. Just send them the folder, or individual paintings, and have them put it in their CanvasTheGallery folder. Then, your friend can edit the gallery, and send it back!

Use any picture
Due to the fully accessible painting files, it is possible to swap any picture in and have it displayed as a painting in your gallery. Use your photography photos, photos of your cat, or create a gallery entirely of memes, no one will stop you.

State of the game
The game is 95% done, all that is left is tweaks of the current settings, and polish up the menus. I also aim to increase the color and stencil selection. More adaptive classical music will be added as well.

There game will be absolutely free. You won't hit a paywall or have to drudge through ads.

There will also be a 1.99$ add on which yields a complete color wheel, and more stencils to choose from. You will also get an option to "paste" images, either in the game already, or I will have a folder set up so you can throw in any image you want and the game will let you paste them wherever you want, as much as you want.

I believe this is a good model, as those who are enthusiastic about the game and want to support the developer will buy the add on, and those who just want to give it a shot can try it out for free, no strings attached. This will also let your create a gallery, and you can tell your friend to download the game for free and view it at no charge to them.

mspaint simulator... We've really hit rock bottom at greenlight... Look I get what you're going for in this but this, but after 10-20 minutes of play I would be done after my first crappy painting... :steammocking:

@miststream Hello, not quite sure what you meant there. You are able to change the size of your spray with the mouse scroll wheel and the stencil/texture with right click. Is that what you meant? It could be consider quasi collaborative, as you could send galleries back and forth, albeit you cannot work on them at the same time. I will definitely note this requst though!
