Pixelbox automatically create all the required files for you. No need for additional boilerplate code, you can draw sprites on the screen and start your game right away. The editor keeps all your projects in one place to easily switch between them.

Pixelbox is taking care of starting a local server, building your code and preloading the game assets in a nice asset map. You can test the game directly in the editor or in your web-browser.

Create music and sounds
Pixelbox comes with 2 editors for creating music and sound effects:
- PataTracker is a 8-channels music tracker with NES-like, sampler and FM synthesizers.
- Bleeper is a easy-to-use sound effect creation tool in which you draw the sound from simple waveforms.
Both editors exports to JSON (readable by Pixelbox.js library) or MP3.
