Ghent, Belgium, 18 August 2021: Developer Oisoi announced that they will release their art painting sim game Painting VR on the official Oculus Store with a multi-player system that enables users to paint together and share their work. Painting VR will also provide educational tools for art teachers and a platform for artists to gain visibility for their work in the metaverse. 
 

Painting VR launched in early access on 5 May 2021 and after three months, it had over 8000 users from all over the world. The simulator merges several creation tools in one – its users can create paintings, sketches or graffiti in virtual reality - and it offers a very realistic experience while still easy to use and understand for all ages. It requires no artistic background - which makes it a perfect tool not only for artists but also for people who want to learn to paint or just wish to relax with an unlimited supply of paint. 
 

By adding the multi-player system, Oisoi aims to bring users together in a low-brow international art scene: Painting VR World. It will provide a platform not only for self-expression but education as well: art teachers can use it to hold group classes or one-on-one lessons remotely. The multi-user feature will also enable artists to organise virtual exhibitions or studio visits in virtual reality.
 

After the early access release of the game, Painting VR World started taking shape by itself immediately, in the form of our community on Discord. More and more people started showing their work, encouraged by the words, tips and tricks of others. Artists like Fora De Compasso (BR) used Painting VR to make art they successfully sold as NFT’s, others like Ese Wey (MEX) became overnight Tik Tok successes by sharing videos of their painting process. It’s only logical to bring all these people together now in virtual reality.”, says Wim Reygaert, founder of Oisoi. “By implementing the multi-player system, users will not only be able to create and show their work but also to watch that of others, to play together, to learn together, and to share information, experience and inspiration amongst each other. And they’ll never have to worry about cleaning up afterwards.”
 

A crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter will launch on 1 September to support the planned release of the simulator in early 2022.
