The Wick Editor is a free and open-source tool for creating games, animations, and everything in-between. It's designed to be the most accessible tool for creating multimedia projects on the web. Your creations can run on any device with a web browser - that means mobile too. And since the Wick Editor lives in the browser, you don't have to download any extra software to use it!
- Very similar to Animate and is still being updated!
- Easier to use than Animate. Friendlier scripting API. Always growing. Bug fixes & new features added to GitHub source almost every day. Friendly devs and forum. It can't do everything Animate can (yet!) but give it some time. It sure beats Adobe's monopolistic business practices!
- Really good for a free download, can do almost anything animate can.
