Virtual Gallery Game Occupy White Walls Finally Allowing Artists To Upload Their Own Work
By now, some of you might know that I have a bit of an obsession with Stiki Pixels' art focused game Occupy White Walls. For those who don't know what I'm talking about, the game has been around for a while, allowing art lovers to build their own virtual galleries that other players can explore. Since launch, it's primarily featured art from well-know historical artists. However, one thing Stiki Pixels has talked about doing the entire time is allowing artists to upload their own work to share with others. And the ability to do that has finally arrived.
Now, this doesn't mean you'll upload your work to your gallery and that's the end of it. Instead, OWW uses a system called DAISY to get to know what types of art players enjoy most and suggests related pieces to them to use in their own galleries. Think of it like someone retweeting your work. Other players can even leave messages about your piece. And, you can include important details about how to contact you.
Unfortunately, uploading your work to OWW isn't free. When artists want to upload a piece, they'll have to purchase an upload code from the OWW/KULTURA site. This code costs $9 and is a one time fee. Basically, it helps keep the game and all the various systems required to make it run going. (It's also designed to keep people from purposely spamming garbage into the system...like that 2 second ballpoint rendering of someone's wang.)
While the $9 fee may seem like a lot, it is worth remembering that physical galleries often take up to a 50% commission in order to display someone's work -- which works out to be way more than $9 per piece.
