Link to Tons of Free Sprites!

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Sun Aug 07, 2011 11:55 am

Here is the link and the information posted from it, I hope you all find it useful!

http://www.gamedev.net/topic/544073-free-2d3d-art-assets-09/

aka Sprites, sprites, and more sprites! redux

This is a list of free graphics for games. These aren't just restricted to sprites and 2d graphics, 3d is great too (I just don't know of very much). Know of any more good sites? I'll add in suggestions!
And frankly I need suggestions, because this list could be much better.

[Do note that I'm not especially comfortable with linking to sprites ripped from commercial games that have not been specifically released by their creator(s); I'm looking at you, Megaman sprites.]

Nice. Thanks. I think you mentioned a site or two I visited before. I will check my list this evening after I return home from a documentary I am being filmed in. I think the ones I knew of were from YoYo.
