This week, we have two new tilesets from Kokoro Reflections, and a brand new soundtrack from ayato sound create!
Give your players sun-touched deserts to explore that are more than just the same sand tile over and over with the KR Untamed Desert Tileset! Kokoro Reflections is here with a pack filled with desert-themed tiles to turn boring flat wastelands into unique locations to explore. Have your heroes follow a trickle of water through yellow sand until it reveals a lush hidden oasis where an energetic trading town has sprung up from the ground, with wooden stalls and cooling awnings standing between stone and stucco buildings. If the desert is simply an area for your heroes to train while they search for the next story beat, then create an inn where they can rest and recover in small rooms decorated with shelves and potted cacti.
Make the wilderness more interesting to explore with a full B sheet of plants and cacti, marking the way towards an oasis with patches of grasses and reeds slowly turning into small groves of palm trees. Or show your players just how far they’ve wandered into a dangerous area by only having dead logs and shriveled bushes spread among cold stones and skeletons. This pack also includes animated sprites for fire and doors. Make sure your heroes can see while wandering the market built deep into a mountain by lighting the way with small flames, and let them enter town shops through wooden doors decorated with lattice glass windows. Create parched plains, relaxing oases, and busy towns carved into stone with the KR Untamed Desert Tileset!
Harness the power of Sol and Luna with the KR Sun and Moon Tileset! Kokoro Reflections looked to the sky for inspiration in this pack, creating beautiful tiles to help you make magical castles. A1, A2, A4, A5, and B tiles are ready for you to build exteriors and interiors of your palaces and dungeons, letting your players explore bush-filled gardens before wandering into a guest bedroom for a nap while they wait for their turn to meet with the kingdom’s ruler. Multiple stained glass windows, colorful mosaic floorings, and carved statues of the sun and moon can turn any empty room into a gorgeous temple, and simpler details like teacups, filled bookcases, and portraits give rooms a more lived-in feeling.
Both the moon and sun tiles are placed in the same spots of each set, making it easy to create a unique dungeon! Have the dungeon change depending on the time of day, or have your players trigger the change to help solve puzzles to reach the throne room. This pack also includes 10 sprites to add some animated events to your maps! Light the way with orange flames for the sun palace and blue flames for the moon palace, and cover open doors with curtains that can be whisked open. Flowing fountains are perfect for adding some details to the palace gardens and sleek treasure chests can reward your players for searching the entire dungeon. Create palaces for dueling kingdoms and gorgeous dungeons with the KR Sun and Moon Tileset!
Bring subtle sounds and music to your game with atmosphere! ayato sound create is back with another music pack, this time offering up 12 BGM tracks that focus on atmospheric sounds over bombastic beats and orchestral overtures. Let your players explore your game world as water burbles in the background and birds tweet cheerfully in the trees above their heads, or have wind chimes jingle in the background while they piece together important clues at the latest crime scene.
Not every map or cutscene needs blasting music for its audio, and this pack knows that. Mixing together simple instrumentals melodies with natural background noises, these songs create the perfect tracks for setting the mood without the need to add in extra BGS files. Let a slow piano piece play while rain patters in the background and the creaks of nearby neighbors pop in here and there to remind your hero that they’re not alone no matter how gloomy they feel in the moment, or have the crunch of footsteps and bird songs play as your players wander a not-quite-empty park early in the morning. Set your players off-balance with an eerie electronic tune playing over the thump of feet and muffled calls of children playing during a cutscene where your hero recalls the first time they met the villain, and have the woosh of cars driving by and calmer music ground them in the present once they step back outside into the sunlight. Each track comes in multiple file formats, so it’s simple to add right into your current project. Add in the right ambience to your cutscenes and maps with the atmosphere music pack!
