'Bob Ross: The Art of Chill' Uses the Late Pop Painter's Style

Bob Ross was an icon of the 80s and 90s thanks to the gentle instruction he provided on his PBS show 'The Joy of Painting', and Big G, a board game and puzzle producer, has released 'Bob Ross: The Art of Chill' in his honor. The casual game challenges players to complete Ross's paintings by slowly gathering up colors, and if they can finish ahead of Ross himself, they achieve victory and "chill" status.

The Joy of Painting was successful thanks to Ross's demeanor. He was notoriously mellow, with a soft, pleasant lilt that instructed on painting techniques while making anyone feel like they could put together a masterpiece, no matter their merit. Bob Ross: The Art of Chill aims to bring that attitude back in game form, letting players earn "chill points" by painting their own happy little trees alongside the Ross of the game.
