A downloadable game for Windows

PAINting (v 0.1) is a 2D side-scrolling adventure where an artist has reached a block in their work. The artist no longer has inspiration to create paintings! The artist goes to the Museum of Modern Art in hopes of finding new inspiration from the various paintings there. While looking into the Starry Night painting by Van Gogh he finds himself transported inside the painting! The player controls the artist going through the Starry Night painting level clearing out the various enemies there attempting to reach the asylum where Van Gough himself is waiting for the player. The player will gain inspiration from him and continue to future levels.

Controls: Use the WASD keys to move and right shift to attack.

This game was made in Unreal Engine 4.12.5.

When making this game we were unable to completely implement the use of combat and certain parts of the 2D animation.


  • To implement combat that works according to design, including PAINT splash until enemy death. The goal would be to allow modification to gaming background.
  • HUD / UI for start, pause game over
  • Enemy sprite movement and combat
