The free art on this site is created in response to the tutorial needs of raywenderlich.com – so it doesn’t always fit the game idea you are working on.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could get a set of game art made to suit your game?
Well, now you can!
Submit your idea below in the comments for a set of game art you’d like to see.
When I am searching for an idea for a free game pack for this site (like I am right now), I will look through the comments. If I choose your idea, I will contact you for more details about your game.
Here are some things to know before you submit:
It Will Be Free For Everyone – Not Just You
Any art I make will be free for everyone to use. I will make it with your game in mind, but since it is made for this site, other people can use it too. This means there will be other games out there that might use your art. If you want custom art that is used exclusively for your game, do not submit an idea. Instead, hire an artist.
Choose A Simple Idea
The idea behind these game packs is that they help beginning developers publish their first game (or their first few). As a result, they are meant to be fairly simple, and something that I can make art for in a day or two.
This means your game is more likely to be chosen if it will work with a few characters, up to a dozen or so objects, and one or two backgrounds or menus.
See the game packs currently out there to get familiar with what I consider a simple game:
Rocket Mouse Game Pack and Squirrel Attack Catapult Game Art are good examples of the maximum suggested level of complexity for your submission idea.
It’s Probably Gonna Involve Animals
Sorry, I don’t do people (very well, anyway).
No animal in your idea? Don’t despair, I do games without nature too! I’ve done some board games, space games, and puzzle games with cool scenery. I’ve even done war/army-themed games, though those are not my favorites.
Give Me Some Creative Freedom
If you have your heart set on a specific character, animal, or theme, go ahead and include that. But keep in mind that if I don’t like the project, I will pick another – the more leeway you give me in coming up with ideas, the more likely I am to get excited about your game.
For example, when I created the Monkey Platformer game pack, here’s what I was asked for: “A platformer game where a character has to dodge falling objects and jump up on them to avoid being crushed. The background should scroll vertically.”
I got to come up with the idea that it’s a monkey, in a jungle, jumping onto safari objects. That made me very happy :]
Tell me your game idea! This is what I need to know:
- The type of game (platformer, top-down tile-based game, side-scroller)
- The general concept
- Ideas for character/theme (and if it’s okay if I come up with something on my own)
- The device you are creating for
That’s it! You don’t need to list out every sprite necessary – if I choose your game, I will email you for more details.
