Animated GIFs!

Using GifCam I made the following animated GIF of Score Rush Extended:

Score Rush Extended: Destroying the first boss.

I created it for the Score Rush Extended DevLog (please join and post!).

This animated GIF is 2.48MB in size, so they are taxing on the resources.

A lot of TIGSource DevLogs use animated GIFs to help showcase their game quickly, right within their forum thread. A great example of this is Return of the Obra Dinn.


That is all!
