Hey guys,
Just a tiny tiny update for you guys:

The style will be overhauled soon, check out these new images I attached
As soon as Bart is ready we will have the wiki online again, here at OGA
We have a proper game demo running on the Frogatto Engine which you can find here

All exciting stuff!

Yes, we do need the wiki. OGA's system does not allow for collaborators to update files. Also with an own wiki we can stay our own project rather than breaking into another community.

It seems that Bart wants to host us, which is awesome!

Hey Bart,

I took the wiki down and was able to download all the files and the database. If I want to get it back up I would need to fix it at some offline server first and install some proper anti spam measurements but as I am not the most techy guy it is going to take some time...

Would you be interested to help me out? Having it hosted here would sound ideal (though it still needs to be cleaned up and protected). Shoot me an email!

Don't worry, personal life is always more important than video game projects ;).


Actually we are in a stage of seeing if we can make a game out of this or not, I hope we can come up with a clear descision to either go for it or stick with a tileset. Once we are more goal focussed I will write that post for the front page!

Hey guys,

The OPP now has its own wiki! We could use some volunteers who update pages and check revisions, even if you are not an artist you can help us out!

Visit the open pixel platformer wiki



Oh, and I attached a mockup here to show you some of the stuff we already got. All for free!

Thanks for your comment :)

I have talked to Bart before even starting this project a month ago, but I guess he is busy now with his little one :). If anyone else is able to put a message about this on the front page that would be really really nice!

Also I've added another teasing animation to this post! You can find all the seperate animations for this toucan over here.

What a heavy discussion about such a tiny topic. Ill add my 2 cents anyway:

Rotation: Don't complain. If the artists added rotated sprites, check if they are there for a reason (pixel art or angled shading), if not, feel free to cut out the only sprite you need!


Transparancy: Don't complain. In many cases a single color is indeed enough for the artist, and it is little work for a programmer to remove a background when it is one solid color, compared to making a whole graphics kit.


Lightning: Yep, agreed. But this is not the only issue with the ship you linked to. Perhaps everyone who uploads here should follow some kind of 'game art tutorial'. If there was a game art tutorial I would definitely include the lightning tip in the part about rotatable sprites. If you find work from more experienced people that was intended to be rotated, you'll figure that it's usually done correctly. But if you are asking for free stuff, don't expect it to be professional.


In the end, this is all made available for free!
Every different way of publishing will appeal to different programmers.
A programmer with knowledge of an image editor can correct the first two problems in seconds.
If you want to do zero work and quality art, feel free to pay us and we'll do it for you :)

Cool to see this tiles develop :)
