Super good stuff! I used this to design the playable character in my game


  • Can you add tumbling animations

Hello there! First off... I love your software. I'm hoping to use the characters in a game I'm making. Say this game is a tower defence game which features the characters, would it be within the licence terms to use a screenshot/video to promote the game? Obviously it will feature several of the characters in an environment but they should be of a size that they can't be robbed from the screenshot/video.

Does this have animations besides an idle animation?

Yes, jump, also you can choose between platform or top down modes (means it casts shadow or not). I don't know if there'll be any updates sadly, as the creato not answering anybody anymore from 160 days ago.

 I will purchase if I see an update I see you are working on this tool, you are answering your messages and that is very good!


hi , i just bought your tool..waiting for a big update soon!

Thank you ^^

Just bought this. Looks good, but the current version was last released almost 2 years ago. 

Are there any plans for an update? Any new features in upcoming versions?

Please let us know. Thanks

I'm working on it everyday for a month now, i have left my main job to be able to focus on it, the new update will allow you to create, import and edit the Images inside the app, it's a huge update and I'm so sorry for being late, thank you.


Thanks for the response :)

No worries mate, I'll wait patiently :)


I'm working on it, sorry for being too late -.-.


how I can open in Mac ?

check this https://itch.io/post/2945133


What are all the animations this Software gives you?

According to the creators post on Youtube video reply: idle - run - jump - die

this is so entitled, jfc. are you paying this person? do you even know if they're healthy or alive? get over it. the internet is full of unfinished projects. the sadfaces are such nonsense. sorry to all devs that have to put up with comments like this.

Deleted. it was not mean to be offensive, but realised Mounir got into development hell. Meant to encourage Morin to don't give up on development after this,  and I feel sad for this project's unfinished state. Mounir replied to this post, but deleted the answer, so I assume no health problems. "Get over it", see my comments this one is a month old, and my first is nearly a year old. I gave up on this for a while after asking for update release date for months, and meant no harm.  Idk who are you, and don't care, but please before offend anybody and justify me, try to ask for reasons, but for now "get over it"! If I offended Mounir sorry for it, but please behave yourself yewyn!

@the dev, if you want me to shut up and delete my comments, i will

"development hell" is a term that is used when a project has been delayed indefinitely because of internal factors like a lack of competency, people not being paid, conflicting concepts that have not been resolved, high stress work environments, bad leadership/management, etc.

a single dev not updating their freeware on itch.io after a year or however long is not 'development hell.' it's just life.

speaking as a creative writer and a coder, there are few things more irritating than someone blowing up your account, DMs, inbox, comments, whatever repeatedly asking for updates when you don't owe them anything. of course it's lovely that you like a person's project, but projecting your disappointment at their speed in creating it is the worst, most entitled way you can express that. your sadness is irrelevant to my comment and from the way you've described it, asking for updates over and over, it sounds like you've been pestering this dev for a while.

as for behaving: i speak bluntly. you don't have to like that.

Dude  Mounir promised update with big things that don't happened. Get over it like me, and find sy else to fight with over nonse things.

thank you all, yes the comment was painful because I have been through so many changes in my life and also I'm learning everyday, I have family, life to live like a normal person and I'm working on the project to add [ pixel Editor and animation player ] when I have gone through this I realized that there's still so much to learn to be able to do it at least correctly, the code to draw ellipse can drive anyone crazy and am not that type who will copy and paste code without understanding it, Currently I'm learning C++ alongside with Godot to be able to learn programming correctly to improve my skills, I'm not sad and also you may think for a while [ don't I need money to keep going on this all ? at least to buy myself a better pc and graphics card ? to pay for bills and to hangout like normal persons ? ] surely I do and I'm not going to give up on my dreams, all I have done here is to pack you some sprites that you can have in your game but it's so limited, and all was done in one script so it was so hard to be extended, I'm starting it from the ground and I need to learn more to be proud of myself, thank you all, yes I'm late and I could just have added some more sprites and release the app and you will be happy with it ! but I'm not that type of persons, I want to make you able to [ import - edit - create animations and sprites inside the app - import palettes and to have an extension to the sprite files and also to have online updates ] to do all of that I have to manage how ! and to manage how I should learn more and more everyday, read and create more contents over time whenever the projects needs it ! It's not that easy to connect everything together with only knowledge of Godot 2d and control nodes, I need to learn advanced language like C++ to be able to improve my programming skills ! I'm building it from ground and currently I'm on the half of the way, please be patient the same way I'm patient on this to create an App that can be extended using a game engine, thank you :)

This need new update with custom pieces

already i have made lots of costume pieces and i'm adding a pixel art editor to the app, that's why i'm late and i'm sorry for that , i just want it to have the basic tools of a pixel art editor then i will implement it and publish the app for testing

All this is beautiful man, will it be possible to modify the pixel art of the character maker with your implemented software? I love this, the wait will be worth it, take your time mate

yes you can edit or create new images inside the app , there will be different pixel editors , one for characters and it's animations , another for tilesets and their animations , another one for UI elements and one to create bitmap fonts and each one will focus on it's own job like aseprite and pyxel edit , for the first release i will focus on the character creator and the pixel art editor because they need lot's of work specially on how it should work to create new characters with bigger size like 32x32 and create it's hair and other extras with materials that can be changed for the whole character like the first version , it's a hard job and i don't want to make spaghetti code to be able to update it or fix bugs easily and also a standard extension for saved files that can be shared or moved across the next versions. for example each character will be saved in one file [ character_1.char ] alongside it's layers[character parts] and materials which can be shared later with other users and will allow me to share new characters publicly as files that reads only inside the app.

Hi! Any news about the update? I halkted my game and waited for May, as we discussed, but now is August and no news about any update :(

시발 낚였다. 캐릭터 수정 못한다. 색만 바꾸는 거다. 3달러 버리지 말아라

Does this tool work on M1/Big Sur?


Worst thing I did was buy this tool. You can't edit each character, they're points and I can only change the colors, I don't even have access to the graphics. These graphics were already available for (0x72).

Hi! where you found the graphics? What did you exactly mean about "edit? I made the cherecters this too, and edited later.


Please update this! Give the possibility to add custom parts in order to make the software longer-lived, in this way there are few characters, if you give this possibility the software becomes beautiful


Hi, i made a game with your tool... https://pichinep.itch.io/3rd-goal Great work!!!


it looks amazing <3
thanks for sharing


Hi!! Is there anyway you can add a feature to export a HASHMAP/json file that correlates to the sprite file output? This would contain the attributes for each character that is shown on the sprite file in sequence.  This is very helpful for showing attributes on websites



Yeah, I totally curious too, as I halt my project because I wait for the update. Mounir Tohami write about the end of May (see below), but it's already July :(


sorry for being late, i was having exams and was making some other projects while working on the new version, it could be easy to just update the sprites of the old version but i'm making a whole new app from scratch as an update and i will change it's name to pixel designer, you will be able to import and edit all your game assets includes , characters , robots, tilesets, and UI, also thinking about adding a music editor on the later updates and an internal image editor, i will publish the app for testing soon, i'm sorry again for being late.

Will it be a separate app (should we buy again), or really just an update?


just an update but the price will be higher for the new purchases , the developers who have already purchased it will always have the updates for free.

Wow, thank you!


This is really very cool but it needs character updates, I want to advise you to add a setting that allows you to import your own custom model pieces


Sorry for bothering you with this, but when do you planning to release the update you mentioned before?

I just want to know, because I should plan my game developing schedule, and it's dependant on the update.

Thanks for your answer! :)


I'm really sorry for being so late on the release, I was so busy learning Godot for the past few months, I will release it at the end of May because currently, we are working on a 3d strategy game , thank you.

Thanks for your answer, I'll schedule my game project according to this :)

Hi! I am on a mac and I keep getting an error that the app can't be open! Any suggestions there?


extract the app in your Applications directory, then paste this in terminal "cd /Applications/Pixel_Character_Creator.app/Contents/MacOS" and press Enter , it should change your directory to /Applications/Pixel_Character_Creator.app/Contents/MacOS , if true then paste this in terminal "chmod -R +x" this will change permission for the folder to Read/Write/Execute, then paste this "sudo spctl --master-disable" and try to double click the app again . if it doesn't work then paste this "chmod 755 /Applications/Pixel_Character_Creator.app/Contents/MacOS/Pixel_Character_Creator" and try to run the app again , it should work now and you should enable your master again by pasting this command "sudo spctl --master-enable" , please reply to this comment if the problem was solved , thank you :)


I had this issue. An easier route is to go to settings > security & privacy > general. At the bottom it will say that Character creator tried to open, click on "allow anyway". Note: You must have tried to open it first, and must have admin permissions.

I have bought it.

I hope some update... like new characters, possible to create "battle animation" and other...

The background on this page is killing my eyes :D

it took some time to create it in Godot engine, and i was so lazy to recreate it because i didn't save the scene, but don't worry! I will fix that on the future updates by adding more of them running in all directions :D

This looks amazing! Let me know if you ever expand it to also generate back sprites. I'd love to use it to generate sprite sheets for some isometric projects, and would get this in a heartbeat ;-)

I would love backsprites. I imagine it would be easy to implement. Please add!



Hi, Mounir Tohami!

I bought your tool, and so far I love it!

I want to ask you two question:

1. Are you planning to put the different parts (Skin, Clothes, Hats, etc..), on different tabs? Sometimes I don't know what I'm clicking on. A helmet? A cloth?

2. Are you planning to make the helmets individual parrts like the hats? It can help me a lot! :)

3. Are you planning to add any support for community content?

Thank you for your answers!

hello Igaz!
yes i already have designed and separated the beard, horns, hats and accessories from the styles and they will appear on another tab and i'm working on allowing the users to import bodies then add to it their different parts , also i'm adding tilesets and ui elements, and also will make a discord server on the next release , thank you so much for getting in touch.

Thank you! Also one more question: are you planning to make the shadows optional? It's not a big deal to erase them in an image editor, but I think It's worth to ask.


you can switch to platformer mode and they will disappear in preview and export


Thank you, I didn't realised! I'm looking forward to the update! :)

Any chance for a mobile version?

no , because this app targets game development and it happens only on pc

I don't understand what you mean by that, could you elaborate? I have game development apps on my android. 

Can you tell what apps you get on Android? Seems like I can't find any :O

currently i don't release apps on google play store because i didn't make serious games or apps yet

(1 edit)

I'm confused by your license agreement. We are able to use this art for projects, however we cannot give a copy of the art to someone...what do you mean? Like we can't give away sprite sheets or something? I'm looking at using these in a collectible type game but am worried that it will be perceived as "giving" away the art because it involves the pixel characters.

Also, I'd like to somehow integrate the ability to randomly generate in game. Can I get source for this to enable in game? As it stands the tool is useful but not if you want to use all the characters in game...

(2 edits)

you can't share the sprites or sprite sheets like you send them to someone else or you sell them , but you are free to use all of them in your projects free or commercial

Understood, but I guess part of my question with that is if we modify sprites from here, does that grant us the right to then sell/send them? Some of these sprites look fairly identical to ones found in this generator: https://0x72.itch.io/pixeldudesmaker

So I feel like its difficult to understand how our modifications can be differentiated.

(1 edit)

you can edit them to fit your project but you can't send/share them with anyone or resell them, also I did edit all the characters for the new version and the license will be the same for all the art in this version or the upcoming ones, I don't understand what you want to do with the app but if you want to create a character generator in your own game and you want to sell the game it's ok because in that case, you aren't sharing the assets with anyone but only you are using them in your project.

I rly like your tool... Are any new updates coming soon? I saw somewhere you were working on weapons

yes , the problem is that i'm making it from scratch with so many changes and also I was learning more about Godot Engine so I can make a version which doesn't need any code changes in the upcoming version and only receive art update and can be extended with custom characters , also I'm adding weapons / animals / tilesets / UI / enemies to the next version , I can update the art of the current version soon under 1.11 version but for v1.2 it's still a long way to go

Ty for replay. Thats on whole other level, sounds great :)

Will there be a version for rpgs that are not sidescrollers, so that it has idle/walk up/down?

currently, I focus on sidescrollers because it matches top-down and platformer styles , but maybe I add this when I make new character bases later

298 - 301 hope to see more updates :)


A very nice and clean software, my advice is to buy it now, I'm confident there will be big updates in the future! So it's really worth it! Great job boy

I want to buy this is there anyway i can pay with debit
btw the software looks awesome cant wait to try it

you can by creating a paypal account and add your debit to it and buy from itchio using paypal


Awesome little software that's really useful and made with my favorite little engine!

I used this to create some character art for a game jam I host
[created included of course :)]
