Three Guys That Paint
"Has anyone ever told you that you're kinda weird?"
Nigel is a house painter. While trying to earn money with his two colleagues (Terri and Arthur) and taking care of 6-year-old Alicia, Nigel decides to take in a new tenant: Morwenna.
Despite being new to this whole ‘parenting’ thing, Nigel is becoming a good parent for Alicia. She and Nigel are having a pretty okay life. However, there have been recent reports of mysterious disappearances around the neighbourhood. And Morwenna seems to be acting stranger and stranger...

Behind the Scenes Booklet
Praise for Three Guys That Paint
"The story is weird and fun in a way that feels like one of your childhood fantasies coming to life." - Jay Is Games
"I dig the concept, the diversity, the different fashion trends, the somewhat androgynous ladies, the idea of playing a Canadian bisexual middle-aged adoptive dad because when have you EVER seen that in a VN... I find all your characters pretty interesting, but actually most of all I'm looking forward to seeing Nigel interact with Alicia, because compelling parent/child relationships are pretty much absent from games at large." - Fox Lee
"Three Guys that Paint by Katy133 is a visual novel that reads much like a children’s storybook... There is less about painting than there is about mysterious disappearances, bathroom portals, and parenting – And I wouldn’t have it any other way." - Bluebirdplays
"My thoughts on this game is it's really cute. It's really... adventurous... it's out there... If you're into dinosaurs, space adventures, that kind of thing, you'll probably like this." - RaynebowWolf
"It's a quirky game." - Tryinmorning
"I quite liked this one." - ChrisTenarium
