Open Game Art Bundle

January 18th, 2016 Comments off

Open Game Art Bundle: Humble Bundle meets Kickstarter – Pay want you want and if enough cash is raised all game assets (music, sprites, game code) are released into the public domain. This campaign was completed months ago but I would love to see more of this.

I recently joined Gameful (it’s free):

Gameful is an online “Secret HQ” where you can connect with other people who believe in the power of games to make us better and change the world.

It is a great resource for game developers to discuss ideas and collaborate on projects. My user name is ej2, if you would like to friend me.
