  1. Well go on then, I’ll cut the price of Pixexix Pro by 2/3 so it’s £5 ($8) now, normally £15:

    there’s a free version too that works just fine :)

    for anyone who doesn’t know what it is; it’s a tool for painting onto 3D models :)

      Snagged Pickle.. great deal. I just finished an importer for my Super Play engine, using the trial version.

      I was looking for something like this for this jam – just bought one. And I already have one bug report and one feature request:

      Bug: After working with the program on Windows after a while “selection” tool refuses to work – selection rectangle is appears on mouse drag but then disappears on mouse button release

      Request: Pattern fill – setting for the “fill” tool to fill with pattern instead of solid (25%, 50%, diagonal, horizontal, vertical etc, like in Paint.NET). Would be very convenient for “mosaic” shading when working with low-color palettes.

      At first I thought, “What’s the point? GraphicsGale Free works fine.” Then I downloaded the trial..

      No more stressing over the GUI going mad just because I misclicked once.

    • bugninja says:

      I can’t find where to enter a coupon code on the checkout screens?

    • rylgh says:

      The trial seems great, but I was wondering if you’ve thought about adding an option to export an animation as individual pngs. With Unity + 2DTK, I think there’s a way to import a sheet, but I’d be happy to have the option of just throwing in pngs like I usually do.

    • cadin says:

      As bugninja noted above, you need to log in and complete the PayPal process before you can enter the coupon code (you’ll be taken back to the Pickle store to complete the order).
      I know this is a little strange. Unfortunately I can’t really control that part of it.

      If anyone is having issues with the order process or with Pickle please email support at

    An fascinating discussion is value comment. I think that it is best to write extra on this matter, it won’t be a taboo topic however generally people are not enough to talk on such topics.
