Gary's animation tool

Does anyone know what software Gary uses to make his brilliant character animations in Thimbleweed park? Thanks in advance.

I use photoshop and an extension called AnimDessin, but sincerely I have no idea what tricks these masters use! I think mostly it’s their immense talent, they can even use the worst software but I bet the result would be still awesome. :slight_smile:

I think it was stated somewhere in the blog that he uses Photoshop.

But if you’re looking for a low-cost pixel art tool I’d suggest Aseprite, I think it’s a wonderful piece of software.

Both Gary and Octavi just used Photoshop. We looked at Aseprite when the project started, but it lacked to laying ability we need for talking and gestures. We also need to have multiple animations in a single source file, which it didn’t allow. I know a lot has changes sense then, so it might do what we need now.


Ron, thanks for taking the time to answer my question, and congratulations on your successful game!
