Looking for a way to create animated sprite's? Tile Studio is a small application that many people have never heard off. I am always digging for the small creative applications that do that little bit extra for those special projects. I you are into 2d game creation or just need to knock out a small pixel animation you could do a lot worse then tile Studio.
Tile Studio is a complete development utility for graphics of tile-based games.
The application contains a bitmap editor for creating tiles and sprites and
a map editor for designing level maps.
Tile Studio was originally designed to be used with the
Game Library for the
language Clean (a functional
language, developped by the University of Nijmegen).
But Tile Studio can be used together with ANY programming language, since
the output is completely programmable!
You can program Tile Studio to output your maps, animation sequences,
bitmaps, palettes, etc. in any format and include the output directly
into your source code!
