thank you, i'm glad you liked it! yes, all the art in this game is made up of tiles, sprites and items beck gave me - if you're not familiar with bitsy, these are 8x8 pixel squares - which I then arranged to create the backgrounds.
I had a few vague ideas for the sprites and tiles I gave beck - i was aiming for a specific vibe i thought fit their style, and art like the heart at the end of their game was actually made of 4 seperate tiles that they had to piece together - but we didn't share anything about what we intended them to be. a lot of the fun was in finding out how the other person interpreted the tiles in a different way to how we intended
The exchange was beck's idea - they'd mentioned it to me a while before we started the project, and I brought it up during lockdown as a way to get back into doing something creative. it was a really fun thing to do, definitely recommend it if you're considering trying it out yourself!
