Get a Head Start on 3DDGH Character Creation


[tab:News]SouthPeak Games has launched an online character creation tool for 3D Dot Game Heroes. You can check that out here. It gives you an idea of the character creation within the game, but, unfortunately, you can’t save the design for use later in the game. At least you can work on how to design it early at least. You can, however, save the image/design as a wallpaper or an animated GIF:

To help gamers prepare for all this thrilling and potentially life-changing (seriously, it’s that good) customisation, SouthPeak Games has launched a simple online character designer. It’s just a taste of the in-depth editing system in 3D Dot Game Heroes but gives you the opportunity to let your creative juices flow and you can even save your hero as an animated forum avatar, an image to add a dash of retro to your Facebook or Twitter page and a desktop wallpaper.

Let’s see what you guys can come up with!
