Free Sprite of the Week

Recommended Posts

Our company has been doing this Free Sprite of the Week thing for a little while, so I thought I'd let you know about it, as it's probably useful to some people here.

 

The idea is that one of the animated characters, creatures, etc. that are normally for sale, is given away for free, and there is a new one each week. It seems to be working well for now, and if people don't abuse it, we intend to keep doing this for some time.

 

This week it's an unicorn... and everyone loves unicorns, so you should absolutely get it! If you don't love unicorns, then there's something wrong with you, really ;)

There are also other free sprites if you look in the Market area of the website, and some of them (no, all of them) are really cool :) The ones that aren't free are still very cheap, especially now, since it's all a new thing and literally everything is 50% off for another week or so.

 

The characters with a + next to their names are "premium" ones, that have a much higher resolution, higher frame rate, a larger number of camera angles, and a more complete animation set. The animation sets have been made in a way that makes them suitable to any type of game, from platforming to point-n-click adventures, to isometric RPG's, etc.

 

Just as an example of what one of these animation sets includes, most of the + characters have the following animations seen from 12 different angles (8 isometric and 4 straight-on ones):

 

Idle, Angry_01, Angry_02, Assemble, Bow_01, Bow_02, Bow_Curtsey, Box_PickUp, Box_Pull, Box_Push, Button_Push, Celebrate_01, Celebrate_02, Climb, Crouch, Crouch_Walk, Dance, Death_Backwards, Death_Backwards_Get_Up, Death_Forward, Death_Forward_Get_Up, Door_Pull, Door_Push, Fall, Fight_Stance, Give_Item, Hang_Ledge, Hang_Ledge_Left, Hang_Ledge_Right, Hang_Wall, Hang_Wall_Left, Hang_Wall_Right, Happy_01, Happy_02, Item_Pick_Up, Jump_Up, Jump_Flip, Kick_Flying_Kick, Kick_High, Kick_Low, Kick_Mid, Kick_Spin, Land, Lever_Big_Pull, Lever_Pull, Magic_Raise, Magic_Sky, Magic_Throw, Magic_Thrust, Point_Down, Point_Forward, Point_Forward_Down, Point_Forward_Up, Point_Up, Pull_Up_Ladder, Pull_Up_Ledge, Pull_Up_Wall, Punch_High, Punch_Low, Punch_Mid, Punch_Spin, Reach_01, Reach_02, Run, Sad, Sitting_Cross_Legs, Sitting_Talking, Sitting_Down, Slide_Down, Slide_Left, Slide_Right, Smash, Standing, Standing_Fold_Arms, Standing_Hands_On_Hips, Standing_Look_About, Standing_Up, Stand_To_Climb, Stand_To_Fight, Step_Backwards, Swim, Talk, Throw, Walk, Wave, What

 

Hopefully you'll find something useful in there.

 

Also, if you have any requests for something that you'd like to see, or want stuff to be made exclusively for your games, this is sometimes possible, so if you want just send me a message and I'll forward it to the people that do these things (I only write code and know nothing about art and animation).

I have received a few messages from people who where unable to download the unicorn  :mellow:  I apologize for any technical problems, which have now been fixed (so if you couldn't download it, but try again now it will work).

 

Apologies, and I hope to see some more games with unicorns now :)
