Being a front-end developer by day and with my youngest son, @sms195, going through college (and hopefully uni) to become a game designer/developer, I am keen to get myself up to a level that when he is coding or needs help with almost anything, I can help him out as much as possible.
This post will detail any Awesome #gameDev resources, including;
- Sound assets
- Image assets
- Game development tutorials
- Awesome game developers on Twitter
- Improving your work flow
- General guides and relative things of interest
I will add any resources to this list as and when I find them, so be sure to pop back from time to time.
May, 2014, Brought the one-stop shop for any game developer; GameDev Market. A community-driven marketplace that connects indie game developers with talented 2D, 3D, GUI and Audio asset creators. Reasonably priced, and easy to grasp licensing docs.
This offer from @KenneyWings is absolutely fantastic; Pay what you want for a complete package of 5,500+ assets (graphics, sounds, fonts, game sources and textures). You’ll receive a single ZIP archive with all elements categorized. Oh, and the assets are absolutely top notch!
Being a front-end developer and somebody who tries to steer clear of an element of design, I started looking for freely available graphic assets to begin my baby steps into game development.This is when I stumbled across this site in early 2014. At that point, there was already a fair few image assets for game development. More than enough to get me started, anyway.Oh, and the best part? The assets provided on this site are completely open source, without the need for attribution (but it wouldn’t hurt to show a bit of love!).
At time of writing, you can buy this fantastic resource pack of 3,000+ sound effects for $20. Multi-purpose high quality sound effects library containing thousands of sound effects ultimately suitable for any game genre. Updates are free for existing customers!
Stock Music & Sound FX – Free Commercial License. Although this site is still a work in progress (at time of writing), you can tell it will be an awesome resource for any game developer. Why? Because it is a sister site of the brilliant openstockproject.com
The sound effects available on this fantastic website can be used in any commercial, non-commercial, broadcast multimedia/audio visual production.
Note: Please pay attention to the requirement to credit the artist in order to legally use these assets for both private and commercial use.
CC0 NO RIGHTS RESERVED for this library. It may be used without royalty or credit (though we would love to hear how you’ve used our sounds) for any application, personal or professional.
A fast, free and fun open source framework for desktop and mobile HTML5 game development.
One of the key features of this fantastic app is that it works with any game engine (and it will save you a shit load of time!).
