Decided to fiddle today with a "gleam of light reflecting off text" effect in - am considering using it in a project.

(redrafted for an image description, sorry)

*looks at the gradient background*

*wonders what would happen if instead of having 5 intermediate stages between 0 and 16 pixels in the fill pattern, it had 15*

*cracks open and gets to work*

Here's another, but starting from the checkerboard 50-50 gradient in the center and working outwards to the edges.

And accidentally ending up with diagonal lines, but keeping them.

Goes to show just how much expressiveness is possible in 4x4 binary fill patterns.

Made an entire cart for generating random PICO-8 fill pattern gradients.

Arrow keys to change direction of gradient in preview, z/[o] to copy hex codes for current gradient to the clipboard, x/[x] to generate a new one.

Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.

It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.

Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!

I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.

Please read the rules before signing-up :)

PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
