As some of you may know, I'm currently working on a 2D game engine. (http://uboachan.net/fg/res/91.html
There's surprisingly few free tilesets out there, and none of them are complete or comprehensive. Even less of them come close to meeting my standards or requirements.
So, I turn here. Maybe someone here can into tiles. We want a good, comprehensive library of tilesets for testing and demo games. Any tilesets produced will be re-released for free as part of the tile engine.
We're looking for 16x16 or 32x32 tiles, in the style of old games like Final Fantasy 6 or Secret of Mana. If you're interested in helping us, apply here. The criteria of the application is to post a few samples of your tile art, according to the following prompts:
* A 2 tile by 3 tile tree with some snow on it.
* A portion of a cliff face of some sort.
* A bookcase.
This is to give me a general idea of your style and skill.
If I get any applications, I'll (hopefully) select one or more people to work on tilesets for the game engine. People selected will become members of OmegaSDG, which is my group working on Tsunagari, and the parent organization of this site. I probably can't pay anyone, for the time being.
Remember that our engine uses alpha transparency. Attached is a sample of the sort of tile graphics that warm my heart.
