how many sprites are there?


Simple but beautiful


These look insane for such a simple art style, but I was wondering if there are any more player character styles? Such as different body, or ones with hats

Nope, just one simple character currently. Glad you like the pack!

Alright then, well I appreciate your work either way :)

hi can i use it for my college assignment?

Yep, enjoy.



making a whole game using this thank you

Welcome, hope you enjoy the assets.


Hi-hi! We just released a little game jam project made using your assets (with credits of course), thought you might want to have a look!

Hi, can I use the art style for a game, I won't copy the exact sprites colors or something like that I just really like the art style, soo, can I use it for my game ???


I released Paper Pixels as CC0, this means you can use the sprites as you wish, and you can for sure work in the same style.


This style is great!! I'm using it in my game I'm working on now. I may be adding in my own (poorly drawn) sprites but the style and everything really comes across well. Love the color palette too!


This is such an interesting tileset. Great job !


Hey, thanks a bunch. Glad you like it.


Thank you for the incredible art. Do I use your assets in my new Youtube Channel Video please...??

Thank you onehuang. I am glad to see my assets being put to good use.

I'll be giving your game a play shortly, I'm sure it will be a great one.

Thanks for sharing.

my friend used this and I did too! this was amazing thanks!

Hey, this art is insane! I'm looking foward to make a game with this, but I was wondering, is there any file for the background?

(3 edits)

Thanks, glad you like it.

The pack includes a single tile for the background, you can loop in your game or use a photo editor to make a background out of it.

Edit: Oh, forgot to mention, I'll looking forward to playing your game.

Thank you for sharing and making these available for free. I love these designs!

I wrote an article about Why Do Indie Games Use Pixel Art. In it I included your image, credit to you and a link that redirects back to this page.

If you don't desire to have the image or link included please notify me and I will remove it immediately. 

I am more than happy to have my assets feature in articles. Thanks for your kind words, and thanks for the feature.

The dark version is just great! It reminds me of a Skeletor colour scheme I use in my text editor :] And it should be easy to adapt to the PICO-8 palette.


Ah, a PICO-8 pallete is a great idea. Glad you like the dark themes, enjoy the assets.

Yo solamente necesito decir que es exquisitamente genial este pixelart. Me tomo un juego a tu salúd, muchas gracias amigo.

Thank you for the art. Here is a little game I made in 4 days  using it, where you play as the bee: https://desward.itch.io/wet-bee

Hey, I gave this a play, great use of the assets and a fun game. Thanks for making it. I always enjoy seeing my assets being used.

Hi man! This is probably one of the best tile packs I've stumbled across while browsing itch and I've ended up using it for my entry for the Brackeys game jam. I really love it as much as all your other work I checked out. Keep up the good work!

Just played your game, great concept, it was quite a bit of fun. It is always satisfying to see my assets being used.

Thanks for the kind words, it means a lot. I have many more asset projects on the way.

Making a game with these assets!

Please do share it when you are done.


Absolutely, beautiful assets.  So far need some level design, UI/UX and a couple of AI's and I'll be sure to let you know!

Hello VEXED, awesome job! There is any chance i could contact you in private? Thanks
