I streamed my first 1.5 hours knowing pretty much nothing about the game other than seeing the teams excitement about the release via twitter this week. I felt very immersed and am invested in the world and story now. I would love to title and sign my paintings in the game.
It is interesting how when I gave away my first painting which I made experimenting with the controls and was not very attached to, it was easy. When someone else wanted a painting which I spent more effort in creating and was fond of, I could not part with it. I do not know how artists can sell their originals.
I am emotionally attached to my original paintings in your world. That is a design feat in itself.
