The vibes for this week's releases aren't going to be bright and cheerful. With a set of tiles perfect for a horror school setting, and a brand new soundtrack perfect to bring the edge to your game, these packs can help make your grim game even grimmer.
If you’re a fan of horror games and pixel art, then you need to check out Ann - Art School Tilesets. Karrina and Rongrong have teamed up to release a pack of tiles from their horror game Ann! With tiles focusing on an art school vibe, this pack’s A5 and 4 B sheets are ready to help you make a world for your student hero to survive.
Create a school with fashion, music, and art departments by keeping things in separate buildings, or combine them all to make a huge museum for your players to explore! Create common areas with vending machines and couches to relax on, and don’t forget to include the small offices for professors. With a selection of paintings and sculptures (along with broken pieces) to choose from you can make sure your maps look well-used by students and visitors. Don’t worry about those red stains near the wall, I’m sure they’re just leftover paint. But maybe avoid the old wing of the school where the floors are warped, the walls are grimy and torn, and you swear the piano just moved closer…
Also included are exterior tiles to help you build modern city streets. Create tall white buildings that loom over busy streets, and keep your walking NPCs safe by adding crosswalks and streetlights to your maps. Or create a small outside roof map for your hero to get some fresh air and escape any dangers inside. Just don’t linger too long, because who knows what could follow them up the stairs.
The pack also includes sample projects for MV and MZ, so you can see how the tiles all work together. If you’ve been hoping to add a new museum (haunted or not) to your game, or just love the look of Ann’s tileset, then pick up Ann - Art School Tilesets today!
Have you been worried about your game’s music being too cheery and upbeat for the story’s tone? Then it’s time to check out the Darkest Hour music pack! ayato sound create’s newest pack contains 20 tracks to give your game the right background music for your moodier scenes.
With a focus on electronic beats, this pack is perfect for modern or sci-fi games! Explore cyber cities or busy malls while the beats thrum in your players ears. Battle against thugs with the strumming of electric guitars playing in the background, or choose one of the tracks with a heavy and fast paced beat to keep your players focused on the fight. Or grab the more haunted tracks with creaks and almost ghostly wails to turn an empty building into someplace creepier and much more dangerous. Even the more upbeat tracks still carry a bit of underlining darkness, meaning that you can give your players a slight feeling of unease even during happy moments. After all, that cheeriness can’t last forever, right?
And with multiple file formats for each song, it’s easy to drop them into your favorite engine and start using them right away! Give your busy streets and lonely bars some fitting tunes with Darkest Hour!
Have you ever made or seen a “I need this thing, otherwise I cannot continue working on my game!” type of request? While I understand that some elements can be crucial to have, there is no reason to have the lack of a resource restrain you from working on your project. In fact, the lack should not affect you at all - for the moment.
