free software and misc. useful tools to make pixel art and sprite/tile assets for games
Piskel -- free and open-source pixel sprite editor that works in-browser. simple to use, featuring onion-skinning, multiple exporting options, and a solid toolset.
Pixelorama -- another excellent, free pixel art tool with more in the kit for animation and art than Piskel, and made entirely in the Godot game engine.
Pixelable -- a free (with non-intrusive ads) pixel-art app on iOS devices that offers multiple layers and color palettes, with animation exports as gifs.
free programs for making small, pixel games, with a focus on being easier-to-use than most other ways
GDevelop -- drop-down-menu-based, works in-browser, though download is very recommended. extensible with simple plugins, and many templates available.
GB Studio -- drag-and-drop-based software for making GameBoy-style games that can run on original hardware!
Scratch -- a very learner-friendly, browser-only engine that uses stackable blocks to represent visual coding.
bitsy -- well-loved pixel game-maker right in your browser. excellent for story games and particularly tiny sprites.
RPG Paper Maker -- an engine for adorable JRPG-style pixel games, but in 3D! free to use for non-commercial projects, with a paid commercial license.
