Sony first-party developer PixelOpus (the developer behind Entwined) announced their next game, Concrete Genie, at Paris Games Week 2017 earlier this year. Now they’ve shown off a substantial chunk of gameplay at PlayStation Experience. Check out the official gameplay video to see how the PS4 exclusive’s living artwork operates.

For more on Concrete Genie, here’s what creative director Dominic Robilliard had to say after it was announced:
As you might expect, given that our hero is an artist, a lot of the gameplay in Concrete Genie is about having fun with paint. Using DualShock 4’s motion sensor, you can effortlessly create stunning landscapes that come to life and even make your own cast of unique creatures to hang out and play with. Our goal is for anyone to be able to paint in this game. The paint strokes you make on the walls will turn into beautiful, living artwork.
Unfortunately, Ash has to contend with some bullies in the neighborhood, so the creatures in particular become really important to him: they’re the friends he wished he had in real life.
Concrete Genie is set in a small fishing town called Denska, which sadly at this point is practically abandoned. It has been heavily affected by pollution, but Ash discovers that his magic paint can cleanse the pollution from its streets and alleyways. Using the power of your brush to clean the walls is incredibly satisfying!
Concrete Genie is slated to release sometime in 2018 exclusively for PlayStation 4.
