Let's begin those tutorials about Tiled software !

As a reminder, Tiled is a 2D level editor that helps you develop the content of your game, developped by Thorbjørn Lindeijer since 2008. Its primary feature is to edit tile maps of various forms, but it also supports free image placement as well as powerful ways to annotate your level with extra information used by the game. Tiled focuses on general flexibility while trying to stay intuitive.

Tiled can be download at the official website. Choose Download at itch.io then Download. A window will pop up. You can contribute to help the development or just get it free. Then, choose No thanks, show me the download links..

Install Tiled
