Horde of Cuteness!

Flare artist Justin Nichol has an amazing new free culture art project live now — Horde of Cuteness!

Justin is building a collection of CC-BY-SA (Share-Alike) images especially for the free/libre game dev community. I love the way these little storybook style monsters look! One of my definite dreams with the Flare engine is to have a kids adventure game that follows the imagination of youth. These critters are setting up the perfect art style for that project.

These Creative Commons Share-Alike art packs are useful for all sorts of game projects. Check out these cards by Thane Brimhall, featuring art by me and Justin!

Art in Flare

We’ve recently added many more styles of melee weapons in Flare’s core game data. These were commissioned by the team at Exiled Kingdoms which makes great use of lots of Flare art.

Here are the basic models for these ten new weapons. The Blender models (CC-BY-SA) can be found in our game repo here.

Justin added paint-overs for nice looking icons. These are CC0 along with the rest of Flare’s icon sets.
