Aseprite sprite editor running on Ubuntu 18.04

Yesterday I spent a couple of hours re-learning Gamemaker, or more accurately Gamemaker Studio 2. Fasteroids was developed in version 1.4 of Gamemaker. Just because I don't have enough to learn I decided to buy Aseprite. I've heard from a few people that Aseprite is one of the best tools for creating animated sprites, and at $14.99USD at the time of writing it seemed like a great deal.

Unfortunately my Amazon.ca gift card couldn't be used to pay for Aseprite (despite the fact that there's an option to pay through Amazon.com). To keep things simple I picked up a pre-paid credit card. That $14.99USD gets you the Windows, Linux and Mac OS X version of Aseprite. I installed the 64 bit .deb file on Ubuntu 18.04 without any issue.
