Summertime Madness is a first person puzzle game developed and published by DP Games. Players control a nameless painter, who is sent inside one of his painting by a mysterious figure. While this might seem like a fortunate event due to the painter's home in Prague being under siege during the war, there's a catch. If he can't escape from the painting by midnight, his soul will become trapped forever.
To escape, the painter explores the landscapes that he once created. Everything takes place on a single island that slowly grows and changes as you investigate its intricacies. This painterly world holds a number of secrets, with every puzzle completed letting you unlock new areas. Some puzzles might be straightforward, others are obtuse, but all must be completed as you fight against the clock to escape back to the real world.
The player, in the role of a painter who has made a deal with the devil, has to find his way back to the real world after being cheated and trapped into one of his canvases. A dreamlike journey into a surreal world of the artist’s own creations where the atmospheric gameplay provides mysteries to discover, puzzles to solve and artistic landscapes to explore.
