Hey Eclipse I have a question. I’m considering scrapping my game and creating a website portal that specializes in selling 2d game assets. There would be multiple styles of game assets and they would be sold in game “packages”. I think the art would be far too cheap to sell as individual peaces. So in order to obtain the game art you would have to purchase the whole thing.
The game packages would all have drastically different styles, some cartoon art, some more polished and professional, some replicating pixel dungeon games ex. So if the first tile-set released was not exactly your cup of tea you could wait a few months for the next assets to be released. There would be two available Leasing agreements to purchase for each package. A Standard Lease or an Exclusive Lease. Both would include all of the same exact elements. The only difference is if you purchase a Standard lease I could sell the same art to as many other people after you as I would like. The exclusive would mean I would never be able to sell the assets again. The only term to the exclusive is that anyone who purchased a standard lease prior would be able to continue to use the assets.
Each game package would come loaded with tiles, sprites and everything you can imagine. They will also come in .png and .bmp format, the .png’s would of course have transparency activated. The art library’s would be massive and organized by category’s. The game art would be sent to your emails after purchase as a digital download, you can also request a hard copy sent to you by mail by either USB or CD ROM.
The first set would be my game package entitled “Soulscape” :
The set would include:
50 spell icons
100 character/enemy sprites
This thread is simply made for me to get an idea of what the eclipse community thinks of this idea. My purpose here is not to promote my own graphics or website or anything.
I really just wanted to know what you guys would pay for the tile-set above. Keep in mind the tile-set is massive, includes snow terrains, dessert, housing interior and much more!
So eclipse…. What would you think would be a reasonable realistic price for this package and others? A price range where you would actually go out and purchase to build your game with. I know a lot of you are not artists and would still like to build a custom game with different graphics. I think we are all sick of the rpg maker tiles…
What would you pay for a standard lease?
What would you pay for an exclusive lease?
