This is the one hundred twenty-ninth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.
87 different icons for fantasy RPGs, which come in three different sizes: 32x…
It truncates there, but I can confirm that the sizes are 32×32, 24×24, and 16×16.
If you hadn’t guessed, this is an asset pack, containing pixel art icons of various items and objects. These include fantasy staples like potions and bottles, herbs and plants, books, candles and lanterns, musical instruments, and other miscellaneous things. Owners of the pack can then use these for their own projects, as they are simply .png images that can be imported into any engine or development suite. The icons are provided individually and as sheets containing all of them, with one sheets for each of the three icon sizes.
This is but one of many such icon packs from Caz, but as far as I can tell it is the only one included in the bundle. It is the first of a whopping 20 commercial packs (which are collected together here), and Caz also offers 16 icon packs for free (collected together here). This pack, and I believe all the others as well, uses a generous end user license agreement based on the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license, which means owners of the pack are free to use the icons for both commercial and free products, provided they give proper attribution to Caz. There are a few extra stipulations not to use the assets for projects that are linked to cryptocurrency/NFTs or projects with hateful messages.
There’s not much else to say about this one. The icons on offer here are well done, and would look great on an inventory screen or in any game where items are presented as uniform size (such as a tile-based roguelike, for example). They look best at the higher resolutions but still look good at 16×16. If you’re developing a game with a pixel art style, these might fit in nicely. If you missed it in the bundle, PIXEL FANTASY RPG ICONS is sold for a minimum price of $16.99, and it is also included in the ongoing (at the time of writing) Indie Bundle for Abortion Funds, along with 1121 other things.
That’s 129 down, and only 1612 to go!
