Our final release day of May and this time it is a triple threat. New Fantasy Backgrounds, new Fantasy Music, and a treasure trove of amazing User Interface Materials! Let's take a look.
Bring your players into your fantasy cities with Minikle's Background CG Material Collection Fantasy part01! This pack includes 72 gorgeous backgrounds that cover 18 different locations you’d likely see as an adventurer visiting a city. Let your players see the well-trod dirt under their adventurers’ feet and all the items for sale at stalls as they explore alleys between stone buildings, or turn the fade to black when resting at an inn into a pleasing look at the room your heroes are snoozing in. Once your heroes have recovered and need a new quest, send them to the city’s guild hall where they can check out a huge wooden quest board or even meet with the guild master in their office! With other locations covering churches, noble mansions, and even party interiors, plenty of your possible city cutscenes now can have amazing backdrops!
If having all those locations wasn’t enough, each one comes in 4 versions so that you can perfectly fit it to your scenes. Have your merry market cutscene take place in the light of the day, while a more sinister scene could happen once darkness has fallen and everyone is asleep in bed. Or show just how long your adventurers have been relaxing in a pub by having the view from the window go from the oranges and yellows of dusk to the deep black of night!
Each background comes sized for both 816x624 and 1280x720 resolutions, so you can easily add them into your games whether you’re using MV/MZ’s default size or going with a 16:9 screen size! If you’re ready to make that fantasy visual novel you’ve been dreaming about or just want to help set the scene for your players when they enter a new place, pick up Minikle's Background CG Material Collection Fantasy part01 today!
Make your games’ cutscenes feel like they’re coming right out of a movie with Tyler Cline’s Cinematic Fantasy Music! Tyler Cline is back with another pack of incredible BGM that can help make locations and scenes more impactful to your players.
This pack’s 13 songs cover a variety of emotions, so you’ll be able to find some that fit your world! ‘Desert Nomads’ evokes visions of dunes and open skies, while ‘A Bright Day in the Market’ makes it easy for your players to imagine the cheerful chatter of villagers as they shop.
Choose ‘Cautious Serenity’, with its curious strings and beat, as your heroes explore a long-forgotten ruin or visit the home of someone who could be a new friend… Or a dangerous foe. The relaxing strings of ‘Peaceful Companions’ is the perfect background to a touching scene between party members resting around a campfire, or could make for a great track while wandering around a calm village.
Make your dungeons more ominous with the heavy drums and clangs of metal of ‘Fire Walker’, making your players feel like one wrong step could unleash a horde of foes to battle. Get your players’ blood flowing while they try to escape a trap with the fast drumming of ‘Shadowed Menace’.
Each BGM comes in ogg format, so they’re ready to be added to your MV/MZ projects. Bring your dramatic scenes to life with Tyler Cline’s Cinematic Fantasy Music!
Krachware is back with a new addition to the beloved User Interface series. This time you get a pack with themes that cover a huge variety of moods and settings, so no matter what you are working on, you'll find something that fits your game for sure!
As we're sure you've become accustomed to with Kracheware's packs, on top of the huge variety of windowskins, there are also a broad spectrum of matching title screen frames - which can be used for all kinds of things besides title screens!
Let your title screen shine with an elegant metallic curvy rim in gold, bronze and silver or have it look like it came from the future with a clean white and black frame with neon applications! Have your cut scene or title look cinematic by adding the beautiful film strip overlay! And if you feel close to nature, there are also several beautiful options to pick. Whether you are looking for nature, modern, fantasy, or more, the name of this pack is... well the name of the pack: Variety!
And for those of you who use more complex systems or want to build their own UI there is a Bonus folder filled with bits in different sizes to quickly build the needed backgrounds or buttons!
MZ’s default windowskin is nice, but could be considered a bit too sci-fi inspired for some games. But making a custom windowskin is tough, so what’s a dev to do? If the premade options out there aren’t striking your fancy, then you need to check out Blackxwolf’s Build-A-Windowskin!
Release day is here again, and this week we have three new packs to sink your teeth into! Heroine Character Generator 2 has made the jump to MZ, trot the globe with the first World Music Pack, and head to the stars with Tyler Cline's SciFi Music Pack.
