Update 11/10 We've released the game on Steam — get it here! Of course, the version on itch will remain playable with the same features.

Update 07/20 You can now create a user account and when you submit a picture while logged in it will associate that picture with your username so other people can see which paintings you created/edited. 
When you view a painting there is a link to see other paintings by the same artist.
On the login page there's a notification icon so you can see how many likes your paintings have received.

Deluxe Edition

To help pay for server costs we have introduced a Deluxe Edition that includes several special features:

  • 9 exclusive colors!
  • smaller brush sizes
  • brush smoothing

We really need your support to keep this game running so we hope you'll consider making this one time donation to unlock the latest features!

💬 We started a Discord Server!

Feel free to join to share your work, your favorites, and talk with other players/artists! 🖌️

Your friend, a conceptual artist, has invited you to their latest exhibition.

You enter expecting to see their art adorning the walls, but to your surprise, the VISITORS are the ones drawing the art — they’re even drawing over each other’s work! It’s up to you to protect the exhibition from being covered in artwork that is, intentionally or otherwise, truly awful.

  • Explore a never-ending, ever-expanding gallery full of user-generated art — and snarky guests!
  • Add a new layer to art that needs a redo!
  • Draw new art to fill the exhibition!
  • Rate art to boost the good and hide the bad!
All of the art exhibited in the game is 100% created and remixed and rated LIVE by other players. Yes, we host all of this art and load it in dynamically. We hope that you will choose to fix the (inevitable) unacceptable art!

In addition to the main gallery there is also a portal to the "gallery of the week". Every week there will be a new gallery with a particular theme. The main gallery is pretty crowded so your art may have a better chance of standing out in the gallery of the week!

Почему я не могу найти свой холст с эмблемой "ЧВК Вагнер"? Или удалить вздумали?

does anyone know if there's a way to either reset your password or recover your password on the steam version of the game, I accidently logged out and now I can't log back in because I forgot my password, thanks

someone putted a twin painting i edited it saying im osama bin laden

don't you dare apologize for this masterpiece


is there a way to connect a drawing tablet / drawing pen to be able to draw instead of on a mouse/ mouse pad?

thats a skill issue lmao. 

if its a screen then options -> display menu-> make main display to the device and then run the game, if just pen, then make sure with the devices software is able to reach all of your displays (if you have multiple displays) and/or the full entirety of the screen , the pens are supposed to basically be a mouse so if it is not working for the game then there might be something wrong with your pen.

i walked in one direction for 20 min and there is no end but i think i saw all of the pictures because all the canvases in every room i entered were empty

sometimes you see exhibits like this and they are by the same person


to the person drawing dicks and swastikas on everything: great job and keep it going. oh wait. that was me. :)


You're a shitty excuse for a human being


Who's been drawing dicks?!


wtf is wrong with you


Wow, so cool that you have nothing better to do with your life and that you think dicks and swastikas are peak comedy. I bet you could be a comedian. /s

So glad they added weapons to this game! Too bad everyone's already dead.



how much is the deluxe package and how do we go about paying for it ? can we use the itch version and not download it 

what is your username in the game?



Thank you :)


game goes hard 10/10


that keeps happening to me too


The game won't fully load in (the drawings/pictures) for me and it will not let me log in. Is this happening for anyone else??


Did some art for the first time in a whole! thanks!


woahhhh, this looks good! 

thank you @u@


LET US DO SECOND LAYER FOR OUR OWN PAINTINGS AGAIN!!! will you really delete this man from existence just because we cant edit our own paintings??? es em ache :(

So I have an idea. So you have it for free darker colors and then for the deluxe one. You can put RGB color. boom lol I had that in my head for a while. but you don't have to .


anyone else find this very long bubble in latin (i think) it translates to stuff about the  lord, life, death and pain. very strange. great game tho!


Perhaps its written by the older guard?


That is dummy text



The artist must be really pro

omg hax?!?1! /j



this game slays


love this game

Ayo bro that kinda sus

I just spin for some reason.


Thank you, this was a very interesting experience to say the least.


Help. What is this place?

You are the chosen one.

Backrooms 2

Can you add a feature that lets you change your account email/delete accounts? It turns out the email I initially used was wrong, and made a second account by accident. I even have deluxe on the first account, and I'd hate to loose it. 


Will this be available for download for mac? I would love to get the deluxe version.

such a wholesome concept! Humans are so cute


i cant see the end of the horizon.... HATSUNE MIKU?!!?



This is such a fun and cute idea, thank you for creating it!

Show post...

Nice concept but too many bad actors drawing tits and cocks. please remove tits and cocks.

Racism At It's Finest.

Dont Be Racist Kiddo's.

Sounds delicious



Has anyone else found this?

What the-

were you playing at night? why is it black?

Theres a button in settings if you click esc 2 times to get th esetting to show up theres one called "dark mode" it will turn black and white if you click it


Several times over.

Has anyone else seen this floating blue pyramid shape? It rarely shows up and seems to drift slowly from room to room randomly. If you take your eyes off of it, it disappears. Maybe it has to do with the exit?

May i ask, Are you in the normal non Premium Area?

Yes, I am. I found the statue in the above comment by going 11 blocks straight ahead of the entranc

i see alright ill try and find it


going forward 11 rooms from the entrance (room past the statue room) then go back the way you came, while going back periodically check behind you and wait a few seconds to see if it appears.

Huh. Sucks that I passed it up, then.


can anybody find the exit? it's like infinity lo


wait.. ITS SCP 3008 ....


(1 edit)

its either scp-3008 or the backrooms.. who knows lol

(1 edit)

 Edit: theres Homophobic People Playing This Game Now? What-..

Lol its true theres so much weird stuff if you go far enough
