Hey there! I made a little twitterbot recently that generates 8x8 sprites for PICO-8:


It tweets both a GFX tag ready for copy-pasting into PICO-8 or the BBS and an image preview of the sprite. Currently it has 3 colour modes (1, 2, or 3 colours on a black background) and 3 layout modes (top-bottom symmetry, left-right symmetry, and 4-corners).

Here are some examples of sprites it's generated so far:


If you're interested in how it works, I made it with CheapBotsDoneQuick and the source is available here. It's actually a pretty simple idea, but generating both the GFX tag and the image preview made it a lot more complicated (and more interesting IMO) than doing either one separately.

cool! next twitterbot could generate under-140-character carts maybe?

Cool idea. Consider it followed :)
