We recommend that you visit Construct 2 and see some Scirra Stores for further info and specs before you decide to enter this comp.
Construct 2
Construct 2 is a powerful and easy to use drag-and-drop game making program that lets anyone make games! Use Construct 2 to put your pixel art into motion. With a thriving community and nearly 50,000 monthly active developers, you'll be able to turn your game ideas into reality faster than you've ever been able to before!

Scirra Store
The Scirra Store is fast turning out to be the leading marketplace online for 2D game assets and tools. We've sold nearly 20,000 third party assets and tools to date. If you're looking to make some money from your pixelart by selling licenses to it in our store to game developers, this is a great opportunity to do so. See an example of a popular pixel kit HERE. Please be aware that to keep things simple for potential buyers, we license all assets under a simple "Royalty Free License" which permits the buyer to use the assets in unlimited non-commercial projects and a single commercial project. This means if they make 2 commercial games with the assets, they need to buy your assets twice. You're welcome to sell single pixel artwork in the store, packs of pixel art or pixel game kits! Anything a game developer might want to buy, you're welcome to try and sell in our store.

That's where you making top notch quality assets available will change the world :)

IMO these stores only make games look more generic and artists less valuable.

This is not a collab comp.
Store accounts let you make extra $ from the pixelart you are already making.

I did wonder if the OPPers want to enter so that the OPP project has a store for all the things already made.
You guys are not selling them but maybe its possible to list in a store for the most minimal amount following the Scirra Store policy as a marketing tool not really for profit?

I am happy to see this collaboration with the marketplaces :)
