Ete is an adventure video game developed and published by Impossible.


Ete [pronounced /ay·tay/, French for “summer”] is a relaxing painting game made for people who love exploration and creativity. Step into the shoes of a budding painter who travels abroad to Montreal for a summer. Unleash color with your paintbrush to freely explore the city and capture its everyday wonders on canvas. Befriend locals by fulfilling their inspiring commissions or prepare an original expo in your very own art studio.

Key Features

  • Explore Montreal in the Summer – Use gorgeous watercolor to paint the world in 3D and reveal its wonders. Roam around peaceful open city scenes and bring them to life by filling them with color.
  • Collect Ideas for Your Album – Everything you discover while exploring—from flowers to birds—is added to your album, an ever-growing compendium of stamps that you can then mix and match in your artworks.
  • Create Artworks on Canvas – Create gorgeous 2D watercolor artworks effortlessly with Ete‘s unique canvas system. Any stamp collected in your album can be added to your composition, moved, resized, recolored, and even spun around in 3D!
  • Show Off Your Talent – Some NPCs will commission you with inspiring requests for specific artworks, but you’re also free to paint as many unrestricted creative artworks as you like. Those artworks can then be hung on your walls or auctioned at the local café… and maybe, if you get famous enough, be exhibited in your very own exposition.
  • Decorate Your Studio and Your Apartment – Build your ideal creative nook by collecting furniture and arranging it your way with Ete‘s flexible decoration system. Decorations can be placed precisely where you want them, combined into complex set pieces, and even recolored!
  • Mix Your Own Colors – Find rare pigment collectibles hidden throughout the city to mix new dyes for your artworks and decorations.
  • Befriend the Neighbours – Meet dozens of locals with colorful personalities as you get acquainted with your new city. Some of your neighbours will have paid commissions for you to fulfill, while others will tend to unique shops that let you spend your hard-earned money on decorations.
  • Relax and Smell the FlowersEte is a deeply relaxing game with no failure and no pressure. There is no time limit, no wrong way to paint and no order in which to explore or complete quests. Take things at your own pace and let your worries go as you immerse in your new life as the friendly neighborhood painter.

Ete is a labor of love from Impossible, a small and diverse team of indies based in Montreal.
