Hello everybody,
The final week for Sprite DLight on Kickstarter is running, all stretch goals are met and the project is more than 500% funded.
Sprite DLight is a tool that generates instant normal maps from 2D sprites in one click. 
This way, you could create a game featuring dynamic lighting on pixel art characters and objects, simply by processing the existing game art and using the normal maps in combination with a shader.
An animated dynamic lighting preview of a normal mapped sprite sheet:

Multiple sprites, re-rendered for different environments, based on the normal map:

There are a lot more previews and information on the Kickstarter project page, including 3 videos.
Sprite DLight is also on Steam Greenlight, every single vote is appreciated.
During the Kickstarter campaign, the tool can be pre-ordered at a reduced backer price, and backers can participate in the beta. Edited by Deeee
