Completely Free - No Strings Attached
Stykz is freeware, meaning it's completely free to download and use to create animations that you can
show off to others or import into other applications. No hidden costs, license or permission are required
to use Stykz to its fullest.
Stykz is the first multi-platform stick figure animation program in the world (as far as we know), so
you'll be able to use Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux* to create, edit and preview your animations. (*Linux is
in internal beta but will be available soon.)

Stykz also imports Pivot 2 and Pivot 3 Beta .stk files, so you can
use your existing .stk files you created, or download one from web sites like
