One thing many programmers struggle with is finding art for their game. There is a new site, The Open Pixel Project that aims to make life somewhat easier for people. It’s essentially a community for publishing, requesting and downloading pixel art graphics. It just went live and there are already hundreds of tiles and sprites available, all under the Creative Commons Zero license, which is about as liberal as they come.
I did a quick hands-on video on the Open Pixel Project available below.
The only immediate recommendation I have, beyond fixing the png links, is that they publish to a much higher resolution. It’s easy to go down in resolution, but not so easy going up! It will be interesting to see how this project turns out.
