Analog is a freeform map editor for 2d games. Unlike most map editors it’s not based around tiles but free placement of a variety of shapes and geometry. You don’t have to be locked to a grid when creating your art or your levels, so you’re able to make much more interesting, organic maps without that ugly blocky feel.
Windows download (version 0.5).
For a change list and older versions see the version history.
- Geometry – Use points, rectangles and polygons to make up your level
