New releases today: Two new tilesets from a new artist, plus a monster pack and a music pack from two returning fan favorites.
Set up haunted parties and creepy mansions with Gothic Blue Halloween Party! Aqua has created a MV/MZ tileset pack to help you create Victorian-inspired interiors that are ready for either a party or for kids to explore after getting dared to enter the town’s “haunted house”. 2 A2, 2 A4, and 2 B sheets offer up floors, walls, and living room furniture perfect for making the scene of a murder mystery or a cheery party after a long day of schoolwork. Set bright orange and purple couches in the center of a room with windows that reveal night is approaching, but don’t let that stop the party! Have your players enjoy colorful drinks from a witch’s cauldron and snack on candies from glass jars while they talk with other partygoers, or have them look at the fake spiderwebs and neon decorations in the corners of the room to avoid their bully.
If your game requires a creepier setting, then skip the Halloween decorations and go straight for the dark and grim gothic blue tileset, where rich blue fabric stands out from the cold black stained wood and tiles. Perhaps a vampire lives there and enjoys the aesthetics they grew up with or maybe the mansion belongs to a writer who just loves macabre decorations. Mix the tilesets together to make a dark mansion with pops of color coming only from forgotten jack o’ lanterns and hanging cobwebs. Pick up the Gothic Blue Halloween Party pack today and make the spoopy party maps of your dreams and the cool and creepy mansions of your nightmares!
Create a comfy home for your hero to grow up in and a happy little village with the Shabby Cottage Tiles pack! Aqua’s latest tileset pack may call itself ‘shabby’, but the quality is anything but! Create cozy homes that belong to grandmas with doily-style rugs and flower-pattern couches, childhood bedrooms with patchwork quilts and soft sunlight streaming through lattice windows, and even relaxed villages with cobblestone paths and vines crawling up wooden walls and patio railings with this pack!
A2, A4, A5, and 3 B sheets for interiors include wooden floors and wallpapered walls to help build a comfortable place to rest. Stoves and baskets for kitchens, tubs and towel holders for bathrooms, dressers and privacy screens for bedrooms, and chaise lounges and old-school radios for living rooms are just a few of the detailed tiles you can use to make each house a unique home! Premade sets such as a couch in front of a window and a vanity with curling vines make it even easier to create a gorgeous room without having to delve into parallaxing. A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, and 3 B sheets for exteriors let you take that comfy feeling from the home into the world! Wander down simple paths to the town cafe, where wicker furniture sits for you to drink some tea and enjoy the views of colorful pink and purple leaves from the magical trees.
This pack also includes door character sprites so you can make sure players can enter all those houses you’ve lovingly created! Wooden doors with rounded tops are a perfect addition to the adorable houses you’ll make with this pack. And if that wasn’t enough, this pack also includes the beta version of this pack, meaning you have another 13 sheets to mix and match with to give houses premade garden beds and other cute additions. So if you’ve been wanting a sweet home for your hero to return to or your cozy game needs some matching cozy maps, check out the Shabby Cottage Tiles pack!
Battle new painted foes with The Story of Pixels - Monster Pack! SourceByte is back with another pack, this time giving you some new enemies in their unique style for your heroes to fight. 8 different creatures have their own character sprite, static enemy battler, and face image so you can create full storylines about them. Let your heroes try to diffuse the situation by talking with an upset green-scaled lizardman before fighting them, or have the spear-wielding lizardman talk to your heroes after they defeat him and share secret skills to strengthen your warriors. Or have lumbering and furry yetis stomp around the mountains while your heroes have to sneak past them to avoid causing an avalanche!
Spooky scary skeletons and rotting zombies can wander your graveyards and ruined cities, or have them hang out in undead bars and offer unsolicited advice to your lost heroes. Battle hulking orcs and wolves with glowing red eyes in forests, and give your dungeons powerful bosses with a flaming volcano creature and an enchanting vampire woman! Each enemy image comes in 3 sizes (big, normal, and sized for MV/MZ) so you can choose the best size for your game or use the different sizes to create boss versions of each monster. So if you’ve been wanting to battle some snake-tailed lizardmen or need some more monstrous sprites to help flesh your world out, pick up The Story of Pixels - Monster Pack!
Set the stage for some spooky experiments with the Doomsday Mad Science Music Mini Pack! Joel Steudler is back with another music pack, this time focused on one thing: tracks that can turn a boring lab of white walls and metal tables into a creepy and dangerous place where neither scientists nor experiments are safe! 5 BGMs are ready to give your players a sense of unease, ranging from atmospheric electronic ringing to curious synth melodies to accompany your heroes when they enter a new town known for its less-than-legal labs. Explore abandoned buildings while echoey synth and lonely strings play, or use it to demonstrate just how empty a basement is… At least until your heroes find the hidden trapdoor that leads them into an all-new dungeon. Reveal who was behind the terrible experiments while a deep and dark tune plays in the background, with stings that send goosebumps racing down your heroes’ arms, or introduce the villain with quirky but concerning synths to put your heroes at ease before he strikes.
This pack also includes 1 SFX you can use as an ME to take a lab to another level of horrific. Slowly increase the SFX’s volume as your heroes approach a lab setup and let your players realize the bubbles and whimpers are coming from the creatures floating in glass containers, before they burst forth to attack! M4a and Ogg audio formats mean you can easily add these tracks to your current MV or MZ game, or use them in your favorite engine. Give your laboratories and science buildings some creepy tunes with the Doomsday Mad Science Music Mini Pack!
