This is a little unfinished preview of what my free characters are going to look like.
I've designed the body shape / animations so that my characters can be used in side scrolling games and defence/battle games where they need to cover vertical terrain.
I'll be releasing each character in packs:
- Parts only; Separated and ready for customisation & animation
- Standard walk, run, jump, fight, die, etc.
- Separate special deaths; fire, electrocution, etc
- Separate special moves for heros
- Separate weapon / clothing / upgrade packs
The original vectors will be included, as always.
With a little effort, you should be able to customise the characters in your favourite vector program quite easily so that your game does not look too generic with stock characters - possibly a good subject for a tutorial in the future.
I just started working on my free character sets this week but should have the first packs for a hero and some villains posted on Monday - let me know what characters you'd like in my game asset suggestions blog post
and I'll add the most popular suggestions to my work list for future characters.
