So I’m pretty darn excited about our latest package over at GameArtPartners. To say the least. The first of three War Machine game art packs not only includes vector art in both Flash and Illustrator formats, but also has animated PNG sequences in 1x and 2x formats. So for you game developers, you’ll have no problem making use of these sprites right away. The animations have even been saved in .atlas folders, which you Xcode users of course know makes it one step easier to make these usable in your iOS apps.
And since I had a little hand in animating and exporting these (and setting them up in Flash), I went ahead and created property list files that are easily importable into CartoonSmart’s iOS Starter Kit. Which brings me to this, a little demo video of the art in action….
Hot off the press we’ve got a new set of platform game art, The Egyptian Template Platformer Tileset. This one comes from one of our rising stars at Game Ar tPartners, Franco, dab Simirk Graphics (that links to all his art so far). As many of you know, I’m a vector-art guy, perhaps even an aficionado of all things vector, but I love his hand-painted style. These are really beautiful pieces and if any of you game developers are listening, a nice crispy game character will look great playing through these. Cartoons look terrific with hand-painted backgrounds. And this set is royalty-free (but not free =) !
Thats the news for now!
Golly I must be in a good mood today. I just feel like giving away some quality free game art. So here goes. This latest freebie at GameArtPartners.com is a 2d military game art character, affectionately titled Jughead and slightly inspired by one of my favorite movies, Starship Troopers.
This dude is fully animated and already exported with 1x and 2x sized images. The full list of animations is…
- Firing from Idle
- Walking and Fire
- Walking (aimed down)
- Walking and Fire (aimed down)
- Jump and Fire
- Toss Grenade from Idle (Special Attack)
- Toss Grenade from Jump
Plus this hombre is drag n’ drop ready for the Fantastic Worlds iOS Starter Kit. The property list, Xcode texture atlas folders, and everything else is included. You just have to import it and start the level with Jughead!
You’ll also receive the Adobe Flash files to re-export out each animation if need be.
