Do you feel good where you are? Some people do, some don't even if they have everything in the world. Does love fix that sort of feeling, even if such feelings feel so hard to grasp and such love could be toxic to yourself? What is a loving muse to the artist who paints them?

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are at a stage in the development process of The Artist that we feel it would be beneficial to get the game in the player’s hands and gather valuable feedback and suggestions from the actual people who will be playing it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate that The Artist will remain in Early Access for approximately 9 to 12 months from its initial release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Including bug fixes and performance updates, we are also planning on adding two more acts to complete The Artist. This includes more dialogue, more choices, and more content.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first act of The Artist is 100% playable, providing approximately 1-2 hours of gameplay with enough content and story to give you an idea of where we are going with it. There are over 1,200 static renders, 12 animated scenes, 26,000 words of dialogue, and several dialogue choices that allow you to explore the setting in more detail, with each choice having an impact on the outcome of the story.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The first act of The Artist will be available to play for free. We plan to increase the price gradually as more acts are developed and released.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We highly value the input of our community and want to keep you engaged throughout the development journey. We will gather feedback and suggestions from the community here on Steam as well as through our social media channels.”

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

The game graphically depicts sex and focuses on a hard-hitting story above all else. Some situations may cause stress and upset to many players.

The story is not intended for players who suffer from mental health issues or are going through a particularly dark period in their lives.

All sexual acts in the game are consensual.

About This Game

Step into the shoes of a successful lawyer in ‘The Artist’, a gripping and dramatic visual novel that puts story and character above all.

Experience a mix of humour, romance, and drama as you navigate your relationship with Ava. With multiple possible endings depending on the choices you make, ‘The Artist’ takes you on an emotional and thrilling journey through the depths of love and trust.

After a run of bad luck on the dating scene, and having seemingly explored every avenue available to you, you unexpectedly meet a woman named Ava who captures your heart and attention.

You find yourself falling into a deepening relationship that is hard to get a grasp of. Ava is an utterly mysterious muse that brings curiosity and so many feelings out of you that make you second guess yourself endlessly. She is the kind of woman that will make you question everything you know about relationships.

Will you stay by Ava's side, even as the evidence against her mounts? Or will you cut ties and move on with your life?

The Artist is currently in Early Access, and the first act of the story is available to play for free. The current version features:

- Over 1,200 static renders

- Over 26,000 words of dialogue

- 12 Animated Scenes

- Jam-packed with Meaningful Interactions

- 10 Achievements to Unlock

- In-game Gallery

There are three major updates planned for The Artist, and these will be delivered in the form of 'Acts'.

- Act One is available for free to give you a chance to play the game, get a feel for the story and characters, and ultimately not waste your time and money.

- Act Two will continue where we left off, and will be around the same length as Act One

- Act Three will be the final release of The Artist, and will see the end of the story.

- We will be releasing bonus content in the form of DLC that go directly towards the production of The Artist and all future stories we choose to tell.
