Title: Royalty Free Sprites and Bitmap Fonts
Post by: spicypixel on 2011-Apr-26
I thought it'd be nice to offer something to the GLBasic community before I start asking allsorts of questions about compiling to the iPhone lol. My name's Marc Russell and I'm a professional games industry graphic artist specialising in pixel art. I do love my programming also and it'll be good to dabble with GLB. For now I hope you find these sprites, level tiles and fonts useful.

Hi and welcome to GLB

Those are some seriously nice pixels :)

Compiling for iPhone is not problematic - it's everything else that goes with it (especially where Apple is concerned) that's troublesome! :P

Welcome to the forum, from me too.

Those graphics looks awesome. Beautiful, really.
..I know I've seen the screenshots somewhere before, but nevertheless...they look fantastic.  :good:

I thought I'd seen the  first screen before - was it a game made in BlitzMax, with little blue creatures with big eyes? Sort of like Lemmings? Can't remember its name though.

They were used for a commercial game that was written in BlitzMax called The Bloobles and released by BigFish

Wow. These are really awesome.
I think I might use them in a demo game for my SEUCK project. So cool.

Ah, these look familiar, the last time I saw these was in The Bloobles? :)

Great work, and very generous of you for releasing them! :)

Very very nice looking GFX. As soon as I saw them I thought of Mayhem in Monsterland on the C64 with a bit of Zool for good measure

Thanks

Thank you very much, it seems these have been quite popular amongst the GLB members. Next set I will release is going to be an AlienBreed type tileset and specifically for GLB licensed members only, so if anyone is interested by all means show your interest.

Definitely interested in anything Alien Breed-ish. I loved the game back on ye olde Amiga. Might be nice to do a remake/re-imagining.

It would be also great if players did more then open door/shoot, more interaction with its scenery, maybe fog of war too.
I would be interested in anything alien breed other than last official remake...
