really awesome, well done.

Hiya it seems nice but can you please add some transparent colour in the sprite editor if its possible? thank you! Looks very nice.. also i dont mind there being links from your gameengine to your website but as it is now its a bit annoying when you click here there you get there anyway xD

The pencil tool, fill bucket tool and eraser tool all have an opacity setting which you can use to add some transparency to your colors. The engine works fully offline, but it also does include a few links to features that can only exist online, such as the Community (user forum) and the Explore section (view projects published by other users).

Thank you! I must not have realized I started doing some sprite you see and then I was like ooh I have to have it as block somehow

Looks good, I'll try it ~




This fun to use engine is constantly evolving and growing. Love it, can’t wait to see what the future brings :)


Really nice! I'll try it
