The Open Pixel Platformer


Join this ambitious collaboration project!

Way back there was a plan for a PJ game. Many artists joined in and many assets were created but lack of organisation put all the work to waste. Today I present you a brand new attempt, the Open Pixel Platformer. The aim is to create a CC licensed pixel art set usable for 'generic' platform games. If this turns out to be a success we could even try and take next steps and build an actual game with the community!

Over the last two months many discussions have been taking place with many PJ members. A style was chosen, DawnBringer has published his DB32 palette for us and art is being submitted as we speak!
Here in the 'jungle set' there are already many contributors, but feel free to discuss, edit & improve or create new assets for it.

Specifically I would like to invite all of you to help with the creation of a 'village set', which only started a few days ago!

Please note that everything submitted to this project will be licensed CC-BY 3.0 , which means that anyone can use your artwork for any purpose and modify it, as long as they attribute you as the original creator.

If you are interested in contributing, please have a look at the style guide and reply to the village set thread with your contributions!

JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/12/2013 12:26 I guess i've become the crazy cat person around these parts. Just for that, I will now pixel a cat for the village set!
