Cool Internet stuff

A bunch of links and goodies, including software, web graphics, games and nice websites :]

✦ Free/opensource/abandonware software and plugins ✦

Blender, free and opensource 3D software, and also has tons of community-created content such as tutorials, add-ons and assets.

Tiny Eye, procedural eye plugin for Blender, available for free. Definitely one of the best ones out there, very easy to use and highly customizable!

Outline Helper is another free Blender add-on, specifically for creating outlines.

FireAlpaca, free digital art/animation software, extremely similar to MediBang Paint. While I personally prefer using FireAlpaca, both are almost identical and really nice to use. You can also find brushes online, like on this blog.

MojoWorld isn't free nor opensource, but abandonware. MojoWorld is a planet/landscape generator, and despite its age (2004-2005), it surprisingly still holds up to this day. While its graphics aren't exactly realistic compared to today's standards, it still works great for surreal or slightly retro renders. I might write a full article about MJW one day, it's such an underrated gem!

PureRef is free as well and great for organizing reference images or creating moodboards. Its "always on top" window mode is really useful, would recommend!

Ren'Py is a free and opensource game engine, mostly used to create visual novels. It is fairly simple to learn and use, even for complete python beginners.

Ublock Origin (Chrome and Firefox) is a must-have adblocker. Works perfectly on most websites (including YouTube), and allows the user to create their own filters.

Speaking of RPG Maker, moseni has a great library of RPG Maker (or rpg maker-like) games with descriptions and links. is a collection of video game maps (ranging from Half-Life to Psychonauts) you can explore and noclip into. Best part is it just works in browser, sick website :]
