Looking to make your next role playing game? This might be the game asset for you. Animated RPG Icons is not just any game asset, it is specifically designed to bring your role-playing game to the next level with animated icons. Whether you’re creating games similar to Final Fantasy Tactics, Shining Force, or Golden Sun, these icons will help you to set the perfect fantasy tone for the players.

One of the biggest benefits of using Animated RPG Icons is the pixel art style. Pixel art has become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. The retro look and feel of pixel art creates a unique charm that still holds up really well by today’s standard.

Animated RPG Icons comes with 40 unique icons, each one representing a different aspect of fantasy. From swords and shields to magic wands and coins, these icons have almost everything you need to bring your game to life. Each icon is designed to be easily recognizable, so players will quickly understand the meaning behind each one. The resolution of 32 by 32 pixels also ensures that the icons will look great without compromising details.

If you have any suggestions for new icons that you would like to see added to the game asset, feel free to send me a message.

Animated RPG Icons is available over at Itch.io, Unity Store or GameDevMarket.
