The curious art curation MMO Occupy White Walls has released another update over the holiday season full of new features, a new website to help players find art easier, and several seasonal items for those who aren’t ready for the jolly time of year to go away.
The art searching website is known as Kultura, which lets players search for artwork uploaded to the game from anywhere as well as see stats like metadata, comments, and other details. According to the newsletter, Kultura is still in “early access,” which seems to suggest the website will be getting some other features later or will be continually updated.
As for the game itself, the State of Mind update has introduced features like an inventory search function, additional action bars, several passepartout display cases for smaller pieces of art, an arctic skybox, several new gestures and effects, and a variety of kinetic holiday decorations to celebrate the new year.
Speaking of the kinetic new year, the devs are hosting a contest that challenges players to “create something super cool” using the new assets added in the State of Mind update. Five winners will be chosen to get prizes like two million cubes, a spot on the game’s newsletter and page on the game’s website, and a portal in the hall of fame at the official new art gallery “phillycommon.” The contest runs between now and January 31st, with details on the link above. You can also get a look at what some of these assets look like in the video below.
