See the professional's artwork before you try it yourself in Paint by DS

LONDON, 14th November 2007

Mercury Games today released new artwork from the Paint by DS game and a new video showing the game in action.

Paint by DS is a digital colouring book which enables the player to recreate masterpieces by renowned artists such as Hokusai, Cezanne and Van Gogh, in their own artistic style. The player uses the DS stylus to mix oil and water-based paints to create colours and consistencies and then paint the artwork.

The game is published by Mercury Games and distributed by Atari in the UK. The game will be released in December 2007, priced at £19.99/24.99.
