Charactron, a little character maker

Published 2023-06-12

This project was done for Picotron Game Jam (March 17th 2024 to April 20th 2024).

My plan was to do a character maker, something similar to what you can find on Picrew but for Picotron.

Everyone can use this avatar maker to make their own characters for any of their game projects (RPG or visual novel I guess?), mostly for Picotron. You can change the sprite, edit the character... The only constraint is to give a link or at least name this tool somewhere.

My ultimate goal is that people can reuse the cart and change the sprite sheet to create their own character maker. Currently, everything is a mess, so it's not really easy to change things with this tool. But I will try to make it as easy as possible in the future!

I want to add some things that I did not have time for during the jam. Here is a list :

This game jam was enjoyable, even though I discovered how bad of a dev I am. Picotron is quite new, there is almost no documentation... So it was a struggle for me. I thought doing a doll maker was an easy project. It was not. Thanks to really kind people on Picotron's Discord, I finished everything I wanted to implement before the end of the jam. I had a rough time managing my time too, between my work, my family and my friends... But I'm so happy to have almost finished this tool. If you want to help me improve the code, let me know. I would love to have some help haha.
