Last night I was talking with my wife about some really amazing music she was writing, and said “I need to make a game set in castle that is inspired by this music”.
The only trouble is, I know this game would be entirely too ambitious to complete (with the limited time I have available to me). Even so, I decided to do a little looking around for inspiration and typed in “castle platformer” into Google image search.
I came across some nice tilesets and decided I would like to document them so I can find them again later, when I decide to make this game.
2D Environments by Brullov Studios
I found this geogeous tileset at https://brullov-studios.itch.io/2d-platformer-asset-pack-castle-of-despair made bybrullov studios for $29.99
I love the way the hero is thrown back in that exaggerated hurt pose. This set cost $10.
As long as we’re exploring top-down tileset, this season Overworld plus Dungeon is a great throwback to games like The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past.
This tileset costs $14.00 USD, or you can just buy the overworld or dungeon for $8.00 each.
