Free 2D Game Art for Your Projects

Eric Matyas

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I’ve begun creating 2D game art that you are welcome to freely use in your projects. Some is pixel art, some is derived from 3D objects that I created, and others are backgrounds that might be useful in visual novels and interactive fiction. You’ll find them on my new “ART” pages on my website:




The art pages are located at the bottom of the menu list on the right side of the screen.


At this point I’m experimenting with different styles and methods so hopefully I will be able to offer a good variety of things. Please feel free to modify / edit as needed. If you happen to find any of these images helpful and decide to use them, please attribute me in the “game art” section of your credits area.

I ventured into new territory this week and experimented with creating animated game art. Made a couple of lanterns that might work in RPGs or other things. One is an old style hand-held one…the other might work for a street or attached to a tavern or inn. Both shimmer with an amber glow. You’ll find them here:


I also created a treasure chest (with a couple of variations) that might come in handy. They are here:


Feel free to edit as needed.

Greetings everyone,

Continuing my mad experiments with various game art styles, I’ve got some pixel art planets and space rocks here:


They live toward the bottom of the page, so make sure to scroll down.

As always, feel free to edit and modify as needed.


great work!

Hey guys,

More experiments with various game art styles. I’ve got some pixel art-style map templates here:


You’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the page.

It was suggested to me that they might also be useful as backgrounds. Feel free to edit and modify as needed.

Btw, if anyone happens to have kids (or know someone who does) I’ve created a learning series that teaches them environmental stewardship in a fun way through stories and characters. It was my first try at making films with a DSLR…(they can be very challenging to work with in the field)…but I think the films came out pretty well. The organization I made them for was very happy with them and uses the films all the time…hopefully others can benefit from them as well. Please feel free to share with teachers, family, friends or anyone you know who might find them useful.

How is credit handled with these assets? I might end up using some of the textures in the future and as long as it's just cc3.0 then it's all fine.


First thing on his website:




when you click on Attribution info you will be redirect to this page https://soundimage.org/attribution-info/ and will be able to read this: In order to use my work legally, you must credit me in your video, game, interactive novel, etc.…not merely on the info page on Youtube, Google Play, etc. (The reason is that people often don’t read that information section.)

So if you make a video of your game and show up Eric"s ressources  then you have to credit him on your video (the easiest way would be by the game shoutbox)

Greetings Earth People,

This week’s new music tracks are:

On my Sci-Fi 7 page:

"INVASION!" – They’re heading this way! Run for your life! Aliens? Zombies? Slimy monsters? Something else entirely?


On my Funny 6 page:

“PARTY GHOULS” - Rockin’ it in their haunted party mansion. This track might be fun in a goofy Halloween-themed game or something like that.


And two tracks on my Positive / Upbeat page:

"OF SUMMERS GONE BY" – Here’s a high energy 80’s-style piece with a sweet, slightly magical feel that might sound nice in a game, video or perhaps something else.

CAREFREE DAYS AT PELICAN SHORES – Carefree and creative…bouncing around town without a worry in the world. Wouldn’t that be great?


All are free to use, as always, with attribution.

If anyone has kids or younger siblings, I've created a fun environmental learning series that (I hope) will engage them through stories and characters. The organization I made it for uses the films all the time, and I'm sharing them with the rest of the world. Please feel free to check them out and share with friends, parents, teachers or anyone else who might find them helpful.


Keep being creative and have a good weekend!
