About

The project

Hello!  I'd like to create an old-school 2d tileset in the style of 'Alundra' to release for free to game developers.   I'm not a game developer any more, but I do run a site that hosts both free and low cost resources to game developers.  I also have a deep nostalgia for old-school 2d games.  This project is born from my passion to share stuff for free and do cool stuff.  The tileset will contain enough 2d tiles to create an outdoor scene similar to:

http://wolverinesoft.org/library/library14_files/image-008.jpg

The tileset will consist of completely original tiles, but will stylistically be similar to Alundra.  Once the tileset has been completed, it will be released on my site (Game Beep) for free.  Free as in beer.  Royalty free.  Free free free.

How will it be created?

In a word: elance.com.  I've had some good luck commissioning 2d tilesets from artists on elance.  I'll spend every penny raised to hire an artist to create the tiles.  My number one goal is quality, followed by quantity.  I've had a similar set created for under $200, so $500 should definitely be enough to hire some good talent.  If I'm over-funded, I'll have additional dungeon tiles created.
