Été is a relaxing painting game where you freely explore a city in the summer, collecting ideas in your album, creating artworks on canvas, and decorating your studio by selling your art to your neighbours.


Été [pronounced /ay·tay/, French for "summer"] is a relaxing painting game that mixes exploration, creativity and story elements. Step into the shoes of a budding painter who travels abroad to Montreal for a summer. Unleash colour with your paintbrush to explore the city and capture its everyday wonders on canvas. Befriend locals by fulfilling their inspiring commissions or prepare an original expo in your very own art studio.

Explore Montreal in the summer

Use gorgeous watercolour to paint the world in 3D and reveal its wonders. Roam around peaceful open city scenes and bring them to life by filling them with colour.

Collect ideas for your album

Everything you discover while exploring — from flowers to birds — is added to your album, an ever-growing compendium of stamps that you can then mix and match in your artworks.

Create artworks on canvas

Create gorgeous 2D watercolor artworks effortlessly with Été's unique canvas system. Any stamp collected in your album can be added to your composition, moved, resized, recolored, and even spun around in 3D!

Show off your talent

Some NPCs will commission you with inspiring requests for specific artworks, but you're also free to paint as many unrestricted creative artworks as you like. Those artworks can then be hung on your walls or auctioned at the local café... and maybe, if you get famous enough, be exhibited in your very own exposition.

Decorate your studio and your apartment

Build your ideal creative nook by collecting furniture and arranging it your way with Été's flexible decoration system. Decorations can be placed precisely where you want them, combined into complex set pieces, and even recolored!

Grow as an artist

Accumulate the droplets of paint as experience to level up and upgrade your exploration abilities. Or, find rare pigment collectibles hidden throughout the city to mix new dyes for your artworks and decorations.

Befriend the neighbours

Meet dozens of locals with colorful personalities as you get acquainted with your new city. Some of your neighbours will have paid commissions for you to fulfill, while others will tend to unique shops that let you spend your hard-earned money on decorations.

Relax and smell the flowers

Été is a deeply relaxing game with no failure and no pressure. There is no time limit, no wrong way to paint and no order in which to explore or complete quests. Take things at your own pace and let your worries go as you immerse in your new life as the friendly neighborhood painter.

Été is a labour of love from Impossible, a small & diverse team of indies based in Montréal.
