A downloadable tool for Windows, macOS, and Android

CharGen is a simple character generator made with Corona SDK for PROCJAM 2016.

It's not entirely relying on Corona SDK features so you can make it work with LÖVE 2D, Defold or any other Lua powered engine with a little bit of tweak.

First of all, you should know that I kept the overall resolution very low to adjust with the assets. They are pretty low-res, actually 32x32 pixels.

Also, I didn't have the time to categorize assets to the related folders so the characters created are not necessarily "medieval" or "modern". It is included as a groundwork for your projects. You can easily tweak the project for your needs and use those categories as "man / woman", "warrior / mage" etc.

The art included in the project is taken from PROCJAM website, made by Tess and licensed under Creative Commons Legal Code Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported.

You can tweak and use the code in any way you like but if you do, I would love to know that it's being used so don't forget to send me a message :)

Can this be used in commercial projects such as games?

Other than the art, sure. Art is subject to other licenses I mentioned in the project description.

By the way, you can also use another tool we created "Character Creator" if you need a more detailed solution. It's also free to use. Here: https://marketplace.coronalabs.com/app-templates/character-creator

By the way, if you manage to release your game, let me know. I'd love to see how it worked out for you.
