Simple Sprite Generator

Post by PriorBlue » Fri May 02, 2014 10:09 pm

Ok, for all the people, who don't see it already, i present you my simple sprite generation tool.
You have a few possibilities to modify the sprite output and add fancy shader effects. The source code is totally hard-coded for now, so beware. :) You can’t save at the moment, so you have to take a screenshot. I will implement this feature in one of the next releases.

Technical info:
I just used the cellular automaton method (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cellular_automaton) to create a clean bunch of pixels , then i mirrored them in the middle to get a symmetry.

Use this tool in your next game jam for time efficiency or even better, integrate the algorithm for infinite game-play fun :D

If you generate an interesting sprite, please post it here, i'm curious about your findings.

Now you are no longer curious of my funds


No but seriously. Kudos. I don't think I've seen too many of these and it really helps with getting ideas for pixel art.

Looks really cool, unfortunately my 7-year-old laptop doesn't support shaders, so I'm going to have to mess around and try to make a shader-free version before I can use it.

They are so cut :nyu: I'm actually having some ideas for this, the big one are the bosses the smaller ones are the little wondering creatures, maybe I'll code something with this.

I already created a shader free version -> https://github.com/PriorBlue/Simple-Spr ... r/releases

Kinda reminds me of that one game where it's a space-invaders style shooter and the aliens are representatives of the files on your hard drive, and shooting them deletes the file. (The game was called Lose Lose, but I'm not going to link it for fear that someone will try playing it without actually reading any of the warnings about it). I think the sprites in that game were procedurally generated as well.

This is great! I'm going to use this to generate player icons for my game, if you don't mind of course. Would you like me to credit you?

This was surprisingly entertaining to use.

Minor thing: You have two parameters called "Param 2" on the interface.

Also, here's a guilty fat hamster:

You can do what ever you want with the code/icons and you don't need to credit me. When you find a cool icon, give credit to the god of randomness :), but i think it's even cooler, if everybody think, you are a great pixel artist ;)

@kikito: oh, thanks. I will fix this.

And at least, my best founds for now (recolored):
(Bear Costume, Wolf emblem, Gas mask, Panda skull, Flying whatever)
