Re-Animated zombies is periodically updated with new visual art resources.
The sprites are ready for use in almost any kind of game, be it indie games for mobile devices, browser games or something completely new.
With the expanding indie game development community and the growing possibilites of implementing ambitious approaches and new game ideas, there is also an increasing demand for affordable game assets ready to be used by hobby-programmers or developer teams with limited budgets.
2D games and some of their graphic styles are becoming increasingly popular and they are well on the way to getting acknowledged as a unique art form.
Retro-style-games are equally in the ascendant as high resolution 2D games, making use of modern hardware and technology.
Designing games has always been my dream and I have spent the past 3 years working and trying to make this dream reality.
My vision is combining art and programming, finding solutions to methodically create art and automate the process of generating art to a great extent.
In over 3 years of learning and experimentation with free game engines and graphic and animation software, I have gathered experience, learned how things work and how they do not.
And I have evolved an art style complying at least with my standards.
Creating game characters is one of the most pleasing parts of game development for me, so I have put the most effort in that particular subject.
Quality and consistency
I have managed to come up with techniques, allowing to create characters of high quality and to animate them in a partially automated process, allowing for good looking motions and functionality while maintaining the consistent style.
Keeping things simple whilst producing good quality is one of the greatest challenges of 2D game and graphic design.
I will keep on using these techniques to create characters for my own games, yet I want to share my experience with other people to and provide unique-styled, user friendly and versatile assets at a low price.
A character set contains
- 20 different animations covering the most important motions needed in games
- 4 scales resampled/resized to achieve the best optical result
- 256 frames in total for each size
These sprites can be used for many different purposes, it goes from any kind of sidescrollers over fighting games right up to adventure games and much more.
The side-views of the characters are designed in a way making no front and back views necessary.
They even look good in games with gradient-scaled walkable areas that generate the illusion of depth, when moving towards to or away from the player.
I initially set the focus on zombies, just for the reason that they are so much fun.
Beginning with undead pirates, there will be more zombies of all kinds, reaching from fantasy and fairy tale creatures to historical inspirated characters of various epochs (imagine stone age, viking, egyptian, indian, roman, western and medieval zombies).
Maybe I will even add some non-zombified characters someday.
Further development and special requests
Check out the shop of re-animated zombies, tell your friends about it, give me your feedback and don't hesitate to suggest new characters, animations or other elements.
You want a specific game character that is not in stock? Let me know!
I am also open to exclusive commissions that will not be published in the shop.
