Concrete Genie is getting into the holiday spirit with a free DLC pack that will let you paint the town with Christmas cheer. The game’s creative director Dominic Robilliard has announced on the PlayStation Blog that today’s new 1.06 update–available to download now–comes with the Holiday Brush Design Pack. When you load up the game after the patch you’ll be asked if you want to activate the pack, and if you opt in your in-game painting designs will have a festive touch added to them.
You’ll be able to toggle the holiday brushes on or off from the top menu, so once December 26 rolls around you can keep playing without a Christmas theme if you so desire.
According to Robilliard, these brushes have been added to give back to the community after a successful launch, and is inspired by the families who are playing the game together. “We designed the game and its story to appeal to all ages but, in particular, we hoped that families could benefit from the universal themes and creative gameplay,” he says. “This has been so rewarding to watch! We hope that many more families over the holiday period (and beyond) continue to enjoy everything that Concrete Genie has to offer.”
Concrete Genie received a 7/10 in our review. Reviewer Hope Corrigan wrote that “most of what Concrete Genie has to offer is fun and beautiful in a sort of childlike way.”
