The Kickstarter campaign for Spriter, the awesome 2d game animation tool is about to enter its final week. Spriter has gotten the attention, endorsements and support of many really great pro and independent game developers...
"Seriously, awesome job on the editor."
- Tuomas Erikoinen, lead artist of Angry Birds
“Up until now, these tools were kept as a sort of "secret weapon" by companies with deep pockets who would use them to reduce dev-time and increase quality. It's often too costly for smaller companies and independents to create their own - and when they do they're reinventing the wheel every time because there is no standard. Spriter finally brings us a commercial solution and with it comes the potential of a universal standard. “
Dan Fessler, Professional game artist, Lead artist, A Bit Lucky
Since the Kickstarter campaign began, there's now working basic beta Spriter support for lots of Game authoring languages and system...

With continued funding we can continue to work full time and get additional help to make Spriter the ultimate 2d Game animation tool and get full Spriter support in all the popular game authoring systems as quickly as possible. Please help spread the word.
Thank you very much.
