Asset Creation Resources

Didn't get enough useful resources last week?  Want to know where to get art, models, music, and sound effects for your games?  Pow!  That was this week's talk hitting you squarely in the face, spilling its contents all over the floor.  It'll take forever to sweep all this stuff up.  We probably should have just handed it to you, instead of throwing it at you like that.  Sorry.

This week we're back with even more helpful resources, this time focused on assets!  Last week was all about design and development, but those don't add up to much without good assets to make your game as fun to look at and listen to as it is to play!  The asset resources we looked at tonight were...

2D Art

3D Models


Sound Effects

We also made a game in Twine, everyone's favorite text adventure game engine!  The finished product is here.  Oh, and if you just want this week's slides, they're here!

Whew, that was a lot of linking!  You're welcome.

Now on to the important announcements!
  • This Saturday, October 1st we'll be hosting a Twine Jam!  Sign up here for an afternoon of hanging out and making very silly things.
  • GameDev T-Shirts are on sale!  For the next 2 weeks, you can get a cool blue shirt with our logo on it for $5!  As of 2015, that's less than a foot-long sub!
  • We're starting a new thing!  Starting Saturday, October 8th, we're going to have Sandbox hours from 1-5pm on Saturdays that we don't have a workshop!  Use this time to study, work on game projects, or just hang out!
See you next week!
