Description: Couple Creator is a simple application that allows you to build a couple or trio from 80+ pre-made characters that can be used for non-commercial/personal uses only. Please be aware that this application was a simple demo made to use as a way to learn some basic programming functions and while it works is far from perfect.The app may stall or hang for a moment when it initially loads due to the large number of pictures loading up for the main layout of the app and may have some issues running in Google Chrome. Please do not embed the application .

Please Note:The app may stall or hang for a moment when loading due to the large number of pictures loading up for the main layout of the app. The app may have some minor issues working well in Chrome 

I’ve posted documentation and a tutorial for this project on Patreon so feel free to check it out and use it to make your own dress-up game or character creator!

What is Couple Creator?

Couple Creator is my first demo HTML5 application. The app was meant to be a simple project I could work with while I learned some programming basics.  The application allows you to put together a character couple or trio from pre-made character images. It allows for multiple couple configurations and each character sprite can be flipped and moved. There are currently 275 character options in the program.

Objectives of the Project

Since my ultimate goal is to work toward character building applications I focused on learning the basic essentials for dress-up game mechanics.

Assets and Tools

I’m using Construct 2 to build applications and for this project I used what I could quickly make with vectors and assets I just had on hand. The character sprites are from my Fanpro Friday project and were built using ePic Character Generator Pro. The other assets are graphics I made myself in Photoshop with vectors I had from other projects.

Project Status

This project is currently finished for the most part. I may come back in later to add characters to it but there’s not much more I can do with it besides that at this point. I will be making a special edition of this app to go in my patron perks that will include a larger amount of characters and possibly more features in the future.
