    Info Grid Cartographer

    Hi, my name is David Walters I'm an independent game and software developer from the UK.

    I've recently released a program called Grid Cartographer. I developed it originally as a mapping tool for cRPG games such as Wizardry and Might and Magic. It has been well received by the RPG community with a number of features being added after it's initial release. I'm now starting to look beyond that audience and into the broader realm of map making - making good strides towards that with the recent addition of custom tiles and exporting maps to image files.

    I'm posting here as it may be of some interest to those of you who wish to develop maps in a grid and tile based manner. Perhaps to rapidly block out low resolution maps (in comparison to some of the beautiful illustrations I've seen on this forum) for your own computer or tabletop role playing game.

    Anyway, here is a link: Grid Cartographer | David Walters Development

    There's a free version and also cheap pro edition upgrade if you find the program useful, wish to take advantage of the advanced features or you simply want to support the project.

    I'm very keen to get feedback on my software and thanks to everyone who give it a try!

    edit: Here's an example of the sort of thing you can make with it:
