Lets celebrate 10 years of free game assets! Three of our most popular premium packs are now available for free, for one day only. Thanks for your support through the years!

The asset packs are a huge collection of sprites, tiles, dialogs, fonts and more in a single file download for each asset pack.  If you miss out on the giveaway it’s not a huge deal, as Kenney.nl assets are mostly all available for free right here, if perhaps in a slightly less convenient download format.

You can learn more about the giveaway in the video below.
