Hex Kit is a multi-platform desktop app that helps GMS design and build maps for their RPGs. You can pick it up for just $15 from Cone of Negative Energy.
Cecil Howe’s project was a Kickstarter that raised $17,148 little under a year ago. It’s not just Windows and Mac that have support; Linux too. The 1.1 update came out in August and added a dropper tool, improved exporting, added a hover and set overlay images to trace maps.
Cartographer and YouTuber Questing Beast was asked by Cecil to take a look at Hex Kit.
Ben can’t get the random generator for Swamps to work but the rest of the review is positive. He quickly puts together an overground map and then demos how easy it is to build an interesting looking dungeon. While this is a desktop tool it uses images of hand drawn tiles so the map will look utterly old school if you print out the maps.
It’s worth noting that the Traveling Through Dangerous Scenary and Fantasyland tilesets are extras you pay for. The Fantasyland Utilities tileset is a Pay What You Want with a suggested price of $0.00.
