With Passpartout you can truly live and feel the life of an ingenious, down-and-out artist looking to make it in the world. You get to create the pieces of art then try to sell them to customers, who will have very strong opinions on your pieces. You can progress from street corners to galleries and live the dream of a troubled, decadent artist, looking for meaning in the world.
The art style is truly wonderful: As you progress through the game, you’ll pass through cut-out set pieces which are framed in ambient lights and set the mood perfectly. It’s enough to make you want to brave the elements to set up your own art stall. Or, you can play Passpartout -- much warmer doing that.
