I was sceotical about the fact you can draw kanji with 4 directions controls but the nice inertia you added to the brush really make it possible.

Thanks! It goes well beyond my expectations. I wrote hiragana:

Made some splatoon fanart by changing X to switch ink colors :D

I made an expressive face. It doesn't look like much but it was very fun to do!

The art people made with it is probably the best part, I too was impressed at what Shodo can do with 4 arrow keys. 5/5 would make calligraphy with again.

beautiful!! love the simplicity and elegance of this.

could add some inkpots to the side for changing colours? (autohide when not near or during stroke)

This is so much fun! Mine... Got a little weird....

Took me a bit of doing to get a W that was vaguely legible but it was worth it as learning the brush physics made the pyramid and eye a lot easier.

This is impressive. Being able to reproduce such an organic style of painting in this limited electronic system is really something.

Impressive, the controls are perfect !

I discovered this through the pico-zine and after you mentioned the Macintosh MacCalligraphy application I attempted to search for it online but cannot find any information other than one expired ebay posting. I was hoping you could talk about its features as I am very intrigued. This is a very lovely little program.

@jctwood
Actually, I only have read about the software in a magazine and have no experience using it. So I don't know about its features in detail. Shodo might be rather different from the original Mac Shodo(MacCalligraphy).
By the way, I found a Japanese blog post including a photo of Mac Shodo's box made of paulownia and a screenshot.

This is incredible! I feel like I can do anything in this!

P#19278 2016-03-17 21:10 ( Edited 2016-03-18 01:10)

This game could use some mouse support!

P#22481 2016-06-07 23:49 ( Edited 2016-06-08 03:49)

This game does not need mouse support. What makes Shodo nice to use is it's inertia, something you can't get with a mouse.

P#22492 2016-06-08 02:25 ( Edited 2016-06-08 06:25)

I'm working on it. Shodo will have both mouse and keyboard input.

@oinariman, that すし is fantastic!

P#22547 2016-06-09 07:17 ( Edited 2016-06-09 11:17)

@cheapshot Thanks! The key point is to move the pen when it is going to up from paper.

P#22597 2016-06-10 06:55 ( Edited 2016-06-10 10:55)

I tested the mouse support on PocketCHIP. It didn't work well. It seems to cannot detect mouse release (touch up).

left_shift is working to switch from mouse to pad in the browser, but i don't seem to find out to make it work in the pico-8 standalone, any hint?

P#39752 2017-04-18 02:03 ( Edited 2017-04-18 06:03)

Rediscovered this and it is so charming, thank you for making it. I would love to see more exploration of digital painting like this where the feel and organic imperfection of strokes is leaned into.

Hmm, nice relaxing cart ... I'm wondering if this is possible to do with a mouse.

P#56052 2018-09-02 12:48 ( Edited 2018-09-02 16:48)

@dw817 if you press left shift it enables mouse mode.

Thanks, FlowingLily.

It was the LEFT SHIFT I didn't know about. No undo mode ?

I made these glyphs.
