There's other tools out there for making pixel art but a little competition doesn't hurt. It's also a reminder of how versatile Godot Engine is, as a free and open source game engine it can also be used for making other tools like this.

This sprite editor has been created in Godot.

I posted last year about godot being useful for application development ( This sprite editor helps prove that point. The video shows off something really exciting here. I cant wait to download and try it.

Never heard of it before! How would it compare to, say, Aeseprite?
