Make your games look amazing with your own custom color palette!
You can use external tools to create sprites for MakeCode Arcade, such as Aseprite, Piskel, and Photoshop, but until now you have probably been working with the default 16 color palette. But no longer! Now, you can create a custom palette to suit your game's design!
How about a stylish monochrome green "Matrix" look? Or moody Steampunk, earthtones? Gritty, yet neon-filled Cyberpunk? Cheery jewel tones? Blues and whites for a winter scene? Any of these are possible!
In this guide, you'll learn a bit of the history behind game color palettes, as well as how to use resources and tools to create and import your own 16 color palette into MakeCode Arcade to include with your game.
You can do everything in the guide inside the Chrome browser using MakeCode Arcade and its built-in game console simulator, or you may want to pick up a handheld game development system, such as PyGamer or PyBadge/PyBadge LC to play on the go!
