Have you always fancied taking up pottery but never got around to it? Let’s Create! Pottery from Polish game development company Infinite Dreams is a unique mobile game that lets you design your own pots and vases. Product description:
With Let’s Create: Pottery making ceramics has never been more simple and fun! Become a true artist and create “one of a kind” pottery items and share them with your friends! Throw the clay on the wheel, release all your artistic talents and take benefit of dozens of materials available in order to create your own design! Even when you glaze and fire your very first pot you will feel accomplished and relaxed as pottery is the best way to relieve your everyday stress and find your inner peace. An amazing, therapeutic and uplifting experience!
Using a smartphone or tablet, you can shape your own pots from virtual lumps of clay on a virtual potter’s wheel, then decorate them in the colors and patterns of your choice. Feel free to sculpt and paint to your heart’s content! It’s the least messy way to make a vase there’s ever been! If you love art this is a wonderful, creative outlet regardless of your artistic ability.
You can create whatever you want, fire it, decorate it, and sell it in a virtual auction. Then use your money from the auction to buy more stuff in the store. There’s also a mode where you are sent orders with a picture of what to make, and you can earn money that way to buy materials, colors, and brushes. The game also offers in-app purchases that allow you to buy stuff using real money.
Finish all quests, build your own palette of colors and brushes, and let your creativity flow. Once you’ve unlocked everything, you can let your imagination roam free and create as many pottery designs as you want, so each time you play is a truly unique experience. You can create hundreds of pots with different designs, colors, and shapes.
Join the Pottery Community
The Let’s Create! Pottery Community Portal (http://www.potterygame.com) is a virtual gallery where you can post your first pot and join an amazing community of potters from all around the world. Share your own creations, climb in the rankings, vote on other peoples’ creations, and compete with talented artists. Every day there is a Pot of the Day. You will meet people who support your work, and friendships can be made that way.
Convert virtual pots into real ones!
Once you put the finishing touches on your pot, you’ll see that there’s a new option to “print”. This takes you to a page where you choose the size of your pot and put in an order to Sculpteo, a 3D printing firm based in France. That’s right, you can order a physical copy of your pot straight from the app!
Sculpteo and Infinite Dreams are partnering to let you create digital potteries and get them 3D printed and delivered to your door. A range of sizes are available, and the pots will be printed in Sculpteo’s food-safe, waterproof ceramic material. Convert virtual pots into real objects that can be displayed on a shelf or be given to family or friends.
Artur Starzyk of Infinite Dreams said, “Thanks to this partnership with Sculpteo, we are combining two innovative technologies – smartphone or tablet touchscreens with 3D printing. Now users can use our application to send unique gifts to friends or simply to decorate their own homes. Imagination is the only limit.”
Arguably, there are other limits involved, too, since there is a maximum size and thickness, and price probably comes into the equation for most people, but in theory, this app will let you create your own personalized ceramic pot, made to your exact specifications, which is kind of cool.
