Praise for the Gray Painter:

  • “I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.”
  • “I came in without expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The characters feel deeply flawed but still understandable. My first impressions of everyone were all totally wrong.”
  • “What just happened, I was utterly not expecting that, stop messing with my head!!!!”

The Gray Painter depicts drug and alcohol use, smoking, inferred suicide, explicit sexual content, horror, and high-impact violence and gore. The story also features themes of body insecurity and dysmorphia. This is a story for adults aged 18 and up.

  • Play as straight, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, or all of the above.
  • Meet seven complex, flawed, human characters.
  • Immerse yourself in the sprawl of New Jersey in 2012.
  • Turn a mild-mannered accountant towards a life of sex, drugs, and rock & roll.
  • There are no secrets in this game. And if there were any secrets, it’s best not to look for them.
