A picture is worth a 1000 words. Sometimes, you just need to show the player portraits of your characters, and if you’re going to do that, you might as well let them create their own portraits, too.

This is a simple, drop-in system for doing all of that, currently in beta. Since it’s in beta, keep these things in mind:

  • Test your game thoroughly before shipping, and maybe wait for the full release before going nuts and implementing this into all your games.
  • Open an issue if you find any weirdness or bugs, or to suggest new features.
  • Expect some oddities with things like error handling and user-friendliness.

The website and repo should contain all the information you need to get started. Feel free to hack on and fix things if you’ve got the knowledge.

If you have assets like these and would want to donate them to a similar system using art of a different style, please PM me, as I’d love to provide more artistic options to authors.

If you have your own custom assets already, support for that will be coming soon™.
