In Mondrian – Plastic Reality, you join Piet Mondrian and his modernist friends on time-tripping heists through art history to uncover their lost works in a colorful, brickbreaking, mind-bending experience with roguelite-esque and creative-centric sensibilities. Included with the game are toolsets that offer artists a new way to share their works with the world. These include Mondrian Maker, an easy-to-learn level editor, and Mondrian Studio, a graphic design suite tailormade for today’s connected creatives. Players can import their own artworks as background images for their Mondrian Maker/Studio creations, and upload those creations to Steam Workshop with the press of a button.
Gaming has always been a frontier for creativity. Whether in the nostalgic paintings of Kid Pix or more recent adventures in Roblox, gamers have always found ways of inspiring and challenging each other. With Mondrian – Plastic Reality, we set out to create a platform that could fit the needs of creative gamers looking for new artistic outlets, of casual gamers looking for something into which they can easily sink hundreds of hours of their time, of hardcore gamers looking for quick ways to challenge their friends, and of retro gamers looking for something fresh but familiar. We hope that this demonstration can give players just a little taste of the infinite, spiraling canvas of fun that awaits them in Mondrian – Plastic Reality.
