About This Game

About the Game

Snowpainters is an arcade racing game where you play as speedy color-changing penguins. Play alone or with friends, change between colors, race on colorful paint trails, and bring color to a snowy environment!

Penguin Customization

Choose between three distinct penguins to race against your friends and other competitive penguins! Pick between the light, speedy Rockhopper, the heavy, controlled Emperor, and the well-balanced Adélie penguin. Choose between a plethora of hats to give extra personality to your penguin.

Color-Changing Gameplay

Use a new, unique mechanic to the arcade racing genre. Gather paint cans to fill your boost meter and speed through the track while dropping paint trails behind you. Strategically change your color to match the different paint trails on the track to go even faster!

Tracks

Play against your friends on 3 different arctic-themed tracks, “North Pole”, “Ice Caves”, and “Glacier”, to see who is the fastest penguin racer! Play on the North Pole, the Ice Caves, and the Glacier with eight total penguins. Wanting to roam the snowy mountains or learn the game for the first time? Play through the single-player tutorial to explore the vast icy tundra.
