Passpartout does a decent job of replicating the frustrations and concerns of being a painter, but that does mean it's purposefully difficult to tell what people want. I like that it gives you an excuse to indulge in some childish MS Paint creativity, but I'm finished with the art scene. These scum don't deserve to gaze upon the Stretch Face.

Passpartout: The Starving Artist is definitely a good catch for those of you looking for a casual and relaxing experience. If you're looking for a game to de-stress with, then this is exactly what you need. It's not a very challenging game, and there's no online or local multiplayer, so it'll probably be best for the “Me Time” section of your gaming collection. If you want a quirky and charming game for the Nintendo Switch in which you take on the role of a starving artist, then this is exactly what you need!

I do think it is a shame that the story built around this tool set doesn't go any deeper. The game really guides from point A to B without you having a say in the matter. That isn't the worst thing, but I do reckon it will put those looking for something deep off.

In the end, I found it difficult to keep coming up with new ideas for art works - and perhaps that's another piece of commentary to take from the game; when artists are forced into endless creation loops by the necessities of commercial demand, it tends to be difficult keeping the creative drive high. Despite that, I never stopped finding Passpartout enjoyable, thanks to its lighthearted presentation and biting, and yet amusing, sense of humour.
