A downloadable theme

Minimal theme for Aseprite 1.2+, focused on screen space and clarity. 

  • New small icons;
  • New small mouse pointers and crosshairs;
  • Truetype fonts;
  • Dark colors.

To avoid blurry text if you have ClearType on, set Screen Scale to 100% and UI Scale to 200% in the Preferences.

 If you still have blurry text, I've added a Pixel Font option to the downloads.

I'm playing with your theme on Linux and I encountered this error. It only happens with the non-pixel-font version. The pixel-font version works alright.

Hi there, thank you so much for the report! I have little experience with Linux, does it come with the Arial font family? As a work around you could try installing it. I asked the creator of Aseprite is there's anyway of having different fonts for different OSes and will bring you an update when he answers ^^

No, Arial is a Microsoft font. There are ways of installing in on Linux though. I'll try it out and report back. But yeah, picking something more universal or having different options for different OSes would be nice.

So even with Arial installed I'm getting this issue.

All right, thanks for trying, I'll try do some tests in Linux here and will update the next version to manage Linux. ^^

Heyy :D Just wanted to say, i absolutely love your theme, it makes Aseprite so much nicer to look at, especially with the new update.

There's only one weird thing i noticed both on Windows and Mac which is, when using the Color/Tint/Shade/Tone mode of color selecting and sliding the little circle along the edges of the selection window, it kinda "multiplies"... i mean the circle just kinda sticks there... seems to be a graphic error, hope that makes sense...

I attached an image, you can see the thing happening at the left and right borders...

Still, love the theme i hope you keep updating it :))

Many thanks!

Hi there! That's been driving me nuts for a while but I can't see to figure out where this error is coming from hahah. I'll try to post on Aseprite's community and see if anyone has any ideas on how to fix this. Thanks for the kind words and for reporting ;)

Finally managed to find the bug and correct it on version 0.4 of the theme! ^_^ Thanks for reporting!


Thank you!!!


Best theme I've seen for Aseprite to date. Nice work.

Thank you so much! ;) Glad you like it!

upgrade for new verssion aseprite pleaze ?

I'm using it in Aseprite 1.2beta12 without problems, are you sure you're using the latest beta?

yea the more I encounter the document in aseprite-theme, it does not detect it, I replace the default files, crash software

ok I just found the problem it misses the file "package.json" to be able to install it in .zip or move the file

Sorry, I still don't understand, there's no need for package.json on the theme files. If you compiled it yourself I suggest you go to https://community.aseprite.org/ and ask questions there, since I'm using the steam version myself.

I've got the same problem unfortunately... When i try to install the extension from the .zip file with Aseprite beta 1.2beta12, i get the following error message:

(I'm on Mac OS X Sierra)


Upgraded to the new version! Check it out, thanks for the bug report ;D


Looks beautiful, thank you!

You are welcome, thanks ^^


Thank you!

Glad you liked it ^^
