JT has been hard at work to bring a bunch of new features to Component Studio. For episode 145 he talks about 2 new features that are outside of the normal workflow of Component Studio but will save users a lot of time and money. The first is the PDFtoPNG tool and the second is the SVG Optimizer.

JT also shares that the free trial has been expanded from 1 day to 3 days. And the code “firstk” is still valid until the end of the year to get $5 off your subscription for as long as it remains active.

Free Paper & Chipboard Products for Game Designers - (ONLY November 8th @ 8am-5pm CT)

The Game Crafter is giving away a bunch of miscellaneous paper and chipboard products because we don’t need them. We think game designers will love using these for prototyping and it’s a much better option than just sending them to recycling! (We will be bringing a bunch of other blank stuff to give away at Protospiel Madison too! So be sure to get your tickets to go to that.)
