I decided to start making a random platformer style game today. Mainly just so I can keep honing my skills.
I’ve decided I’m no artist so I won’t even waste my own time trying to draw my own assets. I saw a recent post on reddit’s /r/gamedev advertising free art assets from a pixel artist and game designer. I had a look and thought they were nice and made my mind up to use them. Here’s a link to the asset’s I used. Although I decided on Ansimuz’s Grotto Escape assets, his original post on reddit was advertising his RPG Town Pack, the Grotto Escape pack really struck a chord with me and was instantly weaving threads of ideas together in my mind.
