Hi Adam!
I really love your Nanodex, and so I decided to make my own version of it, with new original creatures!
You can find it right here.

Please let me know if you think that I made an unfair use of your work, and I'll remove/edit my game accordingly.


Now one of my fav game on earth, love bestiary games!

Friendly reminder: don't f*** with Brian

Brian, Destroyer of worlds


almost snorted out my coffee when I got to brian - ty for this gift ✨😔✨


The descriptions of the NanoCritters are gold! Love this! 


I liked Mawth the most. That's some heckin good writing.

This was very comfortable and it's a great demo of the possibilities of bitsy.


It brings to my mind an intense wave of Tamagotchi nostalgia. 



I feel personally attacked by the Capybara description


This is so great, lovely idea :)


these small critters have evoked some big feels


"Likes: collecting garbage, eating garbage, being garbage."

same tbh


wow, 32 of the ORIGINAL nanocritters! Yeah, I like these better than all those newer ones which devolved into using household objects for ideas (oh wait the mugu nano :P)


"dislikes: eye violence". Don't we all :P

birb! (-type)

Breb crumbs!!!

Is it read as one word, "bevil", or is it "b-evil"? I'm guessing the latter.

nope, Bevil is a nano.

Hee hee, fedora-type

wow, #20, thenix, I thought at first they looked like a guy doing pull-ups but thought that didn't make sense and that there are many ways to interpret sprites and was probably a squid of some sort. Turns out I was both wrong and right.

Nono!! Refusal-type! (not to be confused with Refuse-type). I'm pretty sure you ran out of ideas for sprites and animations so you you made that, then immediately named it. :P

Aardbark, that's a good name actually. Though in bitsy it's hard to make it look more aardvarky...

Were you really really hungry when you made these.... this is like, the fourth "seafood-type" I've come across!

This sigment is adorable!

These are all amazing! I had lots of fun reading through them, and also got a lot of ideas (to steal :P) for sprites! I hope you had as much fun making as I did reading it! And hey, maybe they'll catch on with your kids too!
