While I realize this will have limited interest to most of the folks here, this really is a well designed (and free) tool.

Unlike Petmate this runs in the web browser.

PETSCII is the Commodore version of ASCII. Many computers in the 1970s and into the early 80s couldn't create bitmap graphics as we know it (due to memory limitations, using dumb terminals, etc) so they had to use the character set.

Now it is its own art form!

That's the rest of my day gone..thanks!!

I am loving the resurgence of both character art and pixel art! Sadly however, I am just as talentless in my 50s as I was in my teens lol

But this is exactly what we need to widen the userbase and when people post stuff that genuinely interests them, it rubs off and makes the post more sincere
