What is Aseprite?
Aseprite (previously ASE, aka Allegro Sprite Editor) is a program to create animated sprites & pixel art. Sprites are little images that can be used in your website or in a video game. You can draw characters with movement, intros, textures, patterns, backgrounds, logos, color palettes, isometric levels, and more.
Aseprite source code is freely available from GitHub but pre-built binaries are paid software.
You can download the source code, compile it, and use it for personal/commercial purposes, but you cannot redistribute Aseprite to third parties.
The paid version, $14.99/USD, includes pre-built binaries for Windows, macOS, and Linux, as well as updates and priority support. The trial version does not allow you save your work.

Said about Aseprite as an alternative
Aseprite covers the pixel art aspect of Marmoset very well, and it's the best alternative when it comes to that kind of art.

still paid if you'd like to use the most up to date versioned releases, but overall just wonderfully customizable software. A great variety (and still growing too) of plugins, themes for UI style, scripts, you name it. consider this software if you want something to your full liking that you can mess around with.
PS. I love to use this for game development, its just my thing. Though I also tend to switch between different software out of my mood being different towards something else some days, Aesprite I always come back to.
One if not the best Pixel Art Editor
