Bitsy is a simple game-making tool for creating little art and adventure games. With its easy-to-use interface, creators can design graphics, write dialogues and create interactive stories without needing to be an expert in programming or art. The engine uses a grid-based system inspired by old computer graphics, allowing users to make games that look like they're from the 1980s. Despite its simplicity, Bitsy can be used to tell deep and meaningful narratives through clever use of mechanics and limitations. The tools are often used in game jams due to their accessibility which encourages quick prototyping and creativity on a constrained canvas size of 64x64 pixels per tile.
