Cheeky’s New Home

Just gone live with a new web site for Cheeky. What, you don’t know Cheeky? Really!?

It is a new project we kicked-off some weeks ago at inviticon, where we work on a professionally designed emoticons theme. What’s so exciting about Cheeky are some exclusive facts…:

  • Professionality: The design is completely done by a professional artist, using 3D rendering technology and full physics simulation (including hair, cloth, gravity, facial expressions, light, …). Coding is done by a professional coder. This is commercial-grade stuff for free!
  • Unique Design: The “Cheeky” character is unique in its exclusive and provides a huge recognition value.
  • Cross-Product: Cheeky is provided not only for one single IM application, but you can use it with most of the favourite ones, including Pidgin, Gajim, AQQ, and Adium currently (more to come in the next weeks).
  • It is 100% Open Source (GPL v3), hosted on GitHub, and we really love to receive your issues!
  • Frequent Releases: New versions are published weekly.
  • Production Pipeline: We’re using a semi-automated production pipeline to be able to add many more emoticons and support any number of messaging applications.

…and since few days we have a web site for it:! 🙂
