Joy Exhibition is an art game that tasks players with creating free-form painting as a way to communicate with mute alien races. Created by game developer, Strangethink, Joy Exhibition is a wonderful celebration on the power of art. The game functions on proceduraly generated elements and has players operate a paint gun to create abstract pieces. Each piece created by the user is added to a larger gallery where stone faced aliens appreciate the player made creations. There is no judgement or critique, but there is a sense of enjoyment garnered from the aliens. The game also offers alien landscapes for players to explore and draw inspiration from.
Playing Joy Exhibition almost feels like an act of meditation. While paintings require focus, it is easy to become engrossed in the work and there is a sense of pride in completing a piece. The process can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes, but in that time full creativity is given to the player allowing for full expression or exploration.
