Anyone know of any similar looking assets (paid or free) that would fit with this pack? I'm looking for more background/landscape tiles, more building types, etc.

You can search for other 16x16 tile assets with a medieval/nature style.


Hi! an update should be coming really soon with more modular ground tiles!

Are you referring to the expansion you just released or another update to this asset? Fantastic work!

(1 edit)

this expansion I released, haha

One request, a single zip download for all your new sprites.

update pushed, and at the bottom there’s a single zip to download the whole expansion!

thnk u for the support bro <3 


Hello Shade, Im very gratefull for having this assets in my project! Thanks for giving us this great sprites, i loved it. I wanna ask just 1 thing, im developing a mmorpg online game and your asset pack fill my conditions, but the character animations dont... I need hurted and dead animations to it works fine on my game, can you made them and update it? Or if i have the permissions to edit it manually and make animations as i want, i can do it? Im just asking, its free for use but the info above dont say about modifying it...


yeaah you could add / edit / modify em however you like 
my bad i forgot to add death animations because i didn't know how it should look like lol

Hello Shade!
I used some of these sprites in my latest tiny game and have credited you in the game. Thank you!!

thank you so much bro, can i try your game? I'm happy that u used my assets man

For sure! I sent you a download code for the paid version to your Instagram account.

Free version is available here:  https://megabyte-games.itch.io/battle-god-free-demo


bro i tried it its AMAZING. bro/sis this is the first time I've seen my assets made as a full functional game. great job bro/sis! :D


Thank you for that! Battle God is my first released game so it means a lot.
This pack of yours is flexible enough to do lots of things, I really enjoy it, nice work.

The first second I saw it, I want to make a game out of it.. so much, that I now learn round-based strategy coding that one day I can code a really good game out of it!!!

Loved the aesthetics. Question, could you make 48x48 tiles as a paid job?


hi bro ^^ sorry late reply been through exams and some school stuff, I guess I could say I can do commissions :D but not a job doe :( bcz I have a work in real life 


Hi, wops, I meant commision, sorry. Ok, I will keep your itch.io link at hand or, if you prefer, send me a contact that I could reach you.

Hi! Oh my, sorry for the late reply. I got no warnings from itch.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm very much intending to use your asset for my new game, I liked your style. I'm developing it, but it will still take 2 to 4 years to complete.

Keep your awesome work. I will keep in touch.

sure bro ^^ thank u for appreciating my work :D
