Today on /r/gamedev a new online tool for generating procedural 2D sprites was just released. I did a quick video of Spritify in action you can check out here on embedded below. Spritify is a free browser based tool for generating procedural sprites. The tool is quite simple but could certainly use some improved documentation ( or… any documentatio for that matter! ) but it is certainly usable now.
Essentially you start by painting on a fat grid pixel display using these controls
Draw the contour and your shape, fill the body accordingly with optional mirroring like so:
Various controls are available about how your sprites should be generated:
And at the bottom of the screen, several different procedural sprites will be generated:
Pretty cool tool over all.
