The New Snapchat Game Will Have Players Painting On a Gigantic Pixelated Grid
People playing Bitmoji Paint will first see floating islands that represent different servers players can join. Each server has hundreds of other players who all share a gigantic, pixelated grid with squares they can paint as a shared canvas. Zooming out will allow players to see the bigger picture and create pixel art.
The new Snapchat game has three modes — move, paint, and map. Users can use stock emotes to interact with players around the world, and a voice chat function is also available for those who want to talk to their friends while enjoying the game. The creations of the players will persist to allow everyone to work on their projects at their own pace.
Bitmoji Paint Allows Players to Paint Anything, from Simple Scribbles to Giant Landscapes
John Imah, Snapchat’s head of games and entertainment partnerships stated, Bitmoji Paint gives players the capability to do many things, from making simple scribbles and giant landscapes to sending fun messages to their friends. He also said he had been enjoying the game for a while and is excited to see people from around the world have fun with it. Snapchat has also made sure to address possible moderation concerns. It does not allow players that are not already friends to see each other’s Snap ID and offers easy access to necessary reporting tools.
Snapchat has long been known for using unique filters and games to stand apart from its competitors and pull people into its app. For example, its anime lens went viral, and people used it three billion times in just its first week. According to Imah, the company’s games have already become a success, with more than 100 million users playing them.
