Dear Friends of Silo,
We are very excited to announce the final release of Silo 2022.0, which is ready for you to download now! This update comes with some MAJOR fundamental improvements to the deep inner workings of Silo.

Pixel Art / April 5th, 2022
Pixelmash 2022.1 is here, and you can now export animations as video files, not just as gifs!

To export your animation as a video, simply choose a video format from the extension list when exporting, after which you can choose the number of times you want your animation to loop in the video. Give it a try!
