Become a voxel sculptor with Qbics Paint, the new project of the Spanish indie studio Abylight
The brilliant artist Michelangelo thought that sculpting master pieces such as David or the Pietà is actually pretty easy: “all I do is chip away everything that is not my statue”, he said. That’s the core idea behind Qbics Paint, the new project that the Spanish indie studio Abylight is announcing just today: a game to put 3D modeling and painting at your fingertips. In Qbics Paint you will become a sort of Michelangelo: you will have to sculpt blocks with your own fingers to “free” the Qbics hiding within.
Sculpting won’t be your only task: once you unlock every Qbic you will also be able to customize it, paint it and put it into one of the varied landscapes available. And what exactly is a Qbic? Well, they are this cute little voxel-characters that you can see in the pictures below, of course! And in case you didn’t know, a voxel is just a 3D cube, the smallest unit of every single 3D picture.
Abylight showed Qbics Paint for the very first time during the last Barcelona Games World, a Spanish game fair. The project, financed thanks to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports, is still in the first stages of its development and thus without an estimated release date.
