Not Your Average Stick Figures

When you think of stick figures there's no way that entertaining animated ones pop into mind because that's certainly far from the ordinary.

Users are given all kinds of segment shapes which means you can get real creative and unique with your figures. It also means that no two figures will be alike so you’ve got full customization options. Your stick figures don't have to look dull and boring as you can also add color to them either per segment or on a scale basis.
