A while back I experimented with the idea of rendering pixel art using post it notes. That game was pretty bad, but the idea of rendering pixel art in interesting ways was pretty neat. Inspired by past experiences and this painting by tubbypaws I decided to test out if I could render pixels to look like they were painted. The results were surprisingly good, so I crafted a smallish game around that. A big chunk of the game was made at Karlshamn game jam with Martin and Niklas.
