you can draw things in the paint panel, then place
them in your world in the room panel. you can write
dialog for your characters (aka sprites) too. you can
also animate your drawings if you want to!
* room - a place in your game world
* avatar - the player's character
* tile - a piece of the scenery
* sprite - interactive characters or things
to try your game, switch the room to play mode:
* walk around with the arrow keys
* talk to sprites by walking up to them
you can make multiple rooms, but make sure you add
some exits to connect them to each other!
use "share game" to download the game as an html file.
you can email the file to a friend, or host it online!
if you want to talk about bitsy, report a bug, or share
a game you made, i'm on twitter @adamledoux
or you can post in the community forum
