It's been a long time since I've hung out on this forum, but I always remember that being a really happy time. A time when I was head-over-heels in love with Minecraft and just beginning to explore the PC indie game community.
The Minecraft community was always (and I'm sure still is) a very creative bunch. Perhaps some of you may be interested in a sandboxy painting game. There are RPG leveling up elements, as well as idle-clicker elements.
I wanted to drop a small thread here to share that creation with you - this community may have some interest. The game is called The Painter's Playground. And it's a sandbox for 2D artists. There is an online component where you can buy, sell, and 'like' other's artwork. All of the backgrounds were painted by hand. We are in beta now, and there are still a few features on the way such as Daily Challenges, and Leaderboards. There is a whole collection/curation aspect as well.
