On Monday, Snap Inc. debuted Bitmoji Paint, a new multiplayer Snap game that allows millions of Snapchatters to contribute to a single, massive collage.
Snapchat users can enter Bitmoji Paint via chat via the rocket icon or via search.
You will see a planet with multiple islands floating in space, and each island is a server that players can join along with hundreds of other players. They are then placed on a living, editable canvas.
Players can paint, explore, and hang out by switching between three modes: map, movement, and painting.
Snapchatters can organically meet other Snapchatters in the game, but they can only communicate with emotes through a menu. Other players’ Snap IDs cannot be viewed.
Easy access to reporting tools is available in Bitmoji Paint when other players are not following Snapchat’s rules and the reports are quickly reviewed.
Snap is also introducing Snap tokens for Android users that they can use to customize their experience in Bitmoji Paint.
Snap tokens can be purchased and stored in a virtual wallet tied to Snapchat accounts. The token shop is accessible through users’ profile pages or through Bitmoji Paint, where they can be used to purchase in-game items such as hoverboards, ink painters, paint rollers and roller skates.
Game creators Jeff Cyrus, Julia Kelley, Chris Melberger and Julien Solomita streamed their Bitmoji paint experiences live on Monday morning using Twitch’s Squad Stream tool. All four livestreams are available on their respective Twitch channels.
