Hey everyone, I’m here for a Work-In-Progress Wednesday to show off what I’ve been working on!

This time, the focus is on some spooky upcoming Halloween art. First up, the next big asset pack: A mimic chest monster!

It begins as an unassuming treasure chest, but once opened reveals glowing red eyes, and deadly-sharp fangs!

Once the player gets near, it goes in for a chomp!

Zombie Pack Update!

Hey everyone! For the first of many Halloween-themed updates, today I’m happy to present a long-awaited update to the Zombie Pack: Crawling animations!

Ever since it was requested, it had been something I wanted to add. However, I couldn’t make the time when I was doing freelance programming. Plus, the workflow for this asset pack wasn’t easy… Between the different variations (3 different heads, 2 different legs, 2 different arms, 7 color themes), there are 84 unique zombies. That means 6 recolors to do and 84 spritesheets to update. In the past, I did some crazy stuff with batch scripts to try and make it easier, but even then it was hard. More recently though I’ve improved my workflow overall with some new tools to help me out in this area, and I was able to make the update smoothly!

Hi everyone! New tileset today!!

I’m pleased to present my largest and most detailed, high-polished tileset yet: Super Pixel Sewer!

This is the eighth tileset in the Super Pixel series. Like its recent predecessors Ice Cavern and Laboratory, it has 30, 45, and 60 degree slopes as well as multiple midground pieces and tons of alternate terrain tiles.

Super Pixel Sewer takes it up a notch by adding dozens of decoration pieces and game objects!

It includes destructible blocks, toxic barrels, an elevator, spikes, and a flow control station.

Decoration-wise, it includes all-new larger sizes of decoration pieces, going all the way up to 128x128px. The archway and stone columns are my favorites!

Hey everyone, I’m here for a Work-In-Progress Wednesday to show off what I’ve been working on!

Remember the alien-looking environment from a couple posts ago?

I’m working on some character asset packs to go along with it! The first one is a sci-fi soldier.

I’m really looking forward to animating him! He’s going to have a few different attack animations, including multiple-direction aiming and firing. It’ll be the perfect hero character for the new alien environments!

Holiday Update 2019!

Hey everyone! To celebrate the holiday season, I’ve added 30 new treat, dessert, and candy items to the Super Pixel Objects and Items asset pack!

Get it here: https://untiedgames.itch.io/super-pixel-objects-and-items

I’ve also updated it so that those of you at the $5 tier (and above) can now download it. If you’ve previously claimed it in itch.io last month when the asset pack was free, you should also be able to download the new update.

Also, a quick update on Super Pixel Laboratory, the next tileset in the Super Pixel series. I thought I’d be able to finish it earlier this week, but it’s taking a little longer than expected. It’ll be here Soon™.

In the meantime, here’s another teaser below. I’m really digging the atmosphere of this one.
If you look close, you’ll notice I set it up so the terrain interior pieces can be used as part of the midground interior too! It’s definitely the most customizable tileset so far.

Thank you for your support, and happy holidays! See you soon with more art and videos.

By the way, I’ve been planning out the first few months of 2020, and let me tell you… it’s going to be a BIG year. I’ll be doing more art than ever!
