« on: February 12, 2019, 03:28:08 AM »
Not a wargame but the graphics look incredible and the idea is interesting.

"You are a traveling painter, exploring the island of Eastshade. Capture the world on canvas using your artist’s easel. Talk to the inhabitants to learn about their lives. Make friends and help those in need. Visit cities, scale summits, unearth mysteries, and discover forgotten places!"

A peaceful open-world exploration-adventure full of character
    -Compose paintings anywhere in the world and offer them to the locals to unlock secrets and gain items
    -Acquire crafting materials and schematics to surmount obstacles and solve quests
    -Make friends along the way through fully-voiced dynamic conversations and unlockable topics

No, but there's a Spanish Civil War mod, for more abstract painting.
