brackeys could you make a voice chat tutorial that would be cool so you could use the voice chat to talk to people in your game it would be good for games where you need to talk tatics c:

AskillZ says:

Nice video Brackeys. Very useful!

Ps: Please make a video like this one but for low poly 3d art. Thanks!

Lynx says:

I’d use aseprite it is designed for pixel art and allows for doing animation easily. Also with pixel art it is a bad idea to use jpeg for stuff except possibly backgrounds. PNG is the prefered standard for a lot of pixel art based games.

Shunketsu Sozosha says:

Good tutorial! Easy and fast

Sokar599 says:

This is great!

Pieas Asif says:

Great Video.
I am sad because I didn’t find this channel sooner. 🙁

Shunketsu Sozosha says:

Instead of Grid, i chose Dots. For me, this option was more convenient. The grid no longer interferes with the overview

Mr. Adhesive says:

For anyone who is disappointed because they can’t (or don’t want to) afford PS, check out piskel! It’s free and it is specifically designed for pixel art! If you are feeling edgy you can even turn up it’s resolution and have a normal image editing software. I have made two half finished games with it and one isn’t even 8-bit inspired.

Jemand Etwas says:

Photoshop has a navigator that does the exact same thing as dragging the canvas into a separate image .

Brackeys says:

To those of you saying that you should always use PNG over JPG in this case: You are completely right! JPG can cause compression artifacts and is meant more for photos.

Apart from that, hope you enjoyed the video! 🙂

Opin Ci says:

Ioane Feiqrishvili says:

Please make a tutorial: how to make realistic ship movement

Hungryhyena78 says:

Brackeys, I’m completely new to game making but I’ve always wanted to do it, I notice that in a lot of your videos, you make general things for certain objects, for example, you might have a script that enables gravity in an object, my question is, could you just make a folder on your desktop that includes a copy of all theses scripts, so that when you make a new game, you can paste them in and make life a lot easier?

Ahmed Samy says:

Samuel Kemp says:

Roguelike series!

JustABlitzprank says:

Piskelapp.com is dedicated to make pixelart, and does noet require a “beefy” pc to run photoshop 😉
its a decent alternative in my humble opinion 😀

Hungryhyena78 says:

Please help, I’m trying to make gravity false on a cube when the game starts but C sharp won’t accept it, I did exactly what he did in his video 🙁 what am I doing wrong?

It Man says:

Agnik Banerjee says:

Can you teach us advanced AI pathfinding with Nav-Mesh in a new video series? That would be a cool topic, and very helpful. Maybe some zombies.

Adam Eason says:

i use a program called pyxel edit (especially for animations) but photoshop is a great second for me.
