This isn't really a game, it's just an attempt to show the capabilities of Pico Illustrator and the upcoming Sprite Composer utility.

There are import and export options on the opening screen. Exporting will save your project in text, which you can paste into a text file to hold on to. Importing requires that you paste a project string into the import page.
To see an example project, copy this text and paste it into the import page:

Creating a second path of type line
Toggling paths and changing colors
Moving layers and paths using keyboard input
There are some shortcomings in v1.0.0. There is no undo functionality, and I would've liked to enable rotation and scaling. My goal is to begin a major code clean up and get underway with those features.
