I use several of your packs for my game. They are top notch quality :D 

thank you so much!! ๐Ÿ˜€


how can i slice the sprite sheet? because for me in unity the sprite sheet becomes bad quality

(3 edits)

In Unity,

Make sure the Texture type is set to "Sprite (2D and UI)
Then, Change the compression to "None"
And, Change the Filter Mode to "Point (No Filter)"

The sprites should be clear now. Remember to do this with all pixel art!

(EDIT: IF that does not work, try moving up the max size of the sprite that should fix your issue. Mine worked at "8192")

thank youuuu  the first thingy didn't work but the thing that you wrote in edit helped !

can I use your work in commercial products? I couldn't find a license anywhere.


yes! Of course ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

super, I'd thought so but just wanted to be sure, love your work .


Hi! Your work looks awesome, and I was thinking of using some of it for a top down roguelike dungeon crawler, does this (or other characters) come with back sprites for running animations?

hey thank you so much!! And none of the dark series does, but I have seen devs use it for top downs (like 20 mins till dawn style). In the  stranded series pack, the hero runs in all directions ๐Ÿ˜Š


This asset looks great, but is a bit troublesome to work with. The main sprite sheet is has some animations that are hard to discern, like row 3. The Aseprite file is missing labels on a few of the animations. Other than that, it is fantastic and affordable!

how did you slice the sprite sheet? because for me in unity the sprite sheet becomes bad quality

I exported each animation individually from Aseprite.

Hello Penusbmic. I love your work a lot and I have bought some of your dark series before. Do you have plan to add more idle animation for the sword master hero? I feel like 1 frame doesn't give the same feeling as if the character swaying or bop up and down a bit. Thanks for your work, appreciate it a lot.

hey David! Thanks for the support, some additional animations for the sword master is definitely on my list, so I'll add the idle to the bunch ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you so much. Definitely looking forward for those as soon as possible. Keep it up good sir ๐Ÿ˜Š.

good job :)

Wow dude, this one is tasty. Great work. 

thanks Gamify! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š


You are welcome dude. Now let me if I can slice these up and put a fun prototype together. 

I love this character! Great animation as ever.

thank you โฃ๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜Š 

Well this is EPIC.
