Minifantasy - A Myriad Of NPCs


---

Minifantasy is one of the largest top-down fantasy asset collections out there, and definitely the largest at 8x8 res! It is perfect for prototyping or making polished games full of character.

Originally released in April 2020, it has been expanded with a new asset pack every month since then. Minifantasy will keep expanding with a constant stream of regular new content. 


Minifantasy Bundles

      

* Essentials Bundle and Expansion Bundle contains different packs. There are no repeated packs in those bundles. 
** Complete Bundle contains all the assets in the collection, including the ones from Essentials Bundle and Expansion Bundle

Welcome to Minifantasy - A Myriad Of NPCs, an incredibly complete collection of layered resources to create hundreds of thousands of unique and diverse NPCs for your game.

This asset pack is divided into two sections:

  • The first section is a selection of premade NPCs ready to use. These premade NPCs cover all the crafting professions included in Minifantasy - Crafting And Professions I & II, such as blacksmith, alchemist, cooker, etc. The animations included for each NPC are Idle, Walk, Dmg and Die. Premade NPCs also include a Working animation compatible with the workbenches found in Minifantasy - Crafting And Professions.


  • The second section is the real heart of this asset pack which makes it a potent tool: A layered selection of different character races, clothes, hats, hairstyles and facial hair that you can freely combine to make, literally, hundreds of thousands of unique and charming NPCs. The animations included for each NPC are Idle, Walk, Dmg and Die. 


Inside the asset pack, you will find separate layers for each customizable element. But also well organized Aseprite files to create your NPCs and export them directly.

Hey! I want to buy your complete bundle because I really LOVE this art. But I saw something with a difference with Free license and Commercial License. If i buy the ultimate bundle to get all assets. can I use them in commercial projects? or do you need a 1 time donation of 2.99? I saw that somewhere? 


Romek

Hi Romek! Thanks a lot for the kind words :) I'm glad you like the collection.

If you buy the complete bundle, you can use the free packs content in commercial projects. 

Ah OK! And the bought ones as well. Always wanted to make a small adventure gams

I think these asset packs are the right fit. I was like this is it!!! When I saw it haha. Keep up the good work! 

What sprite packs are on your list? 

Hahaha :) I'm very glad you found Minifantasy! The collection is definitely a great starting point for a new project, it will get you covered ;)

As for the upcoming packs in the collection, I release a new asset pack every month. The fun part is that Minifantasy is run by my Patreon community,  supporters suggest and vote for the upcoming packs, so they are in total control of where the collection is going :D 

For this month they voted "Minifantasy - Lost Jungle", an ancient jungle tileset with dinos and other cool stuff. It will be ready at the end of the month.

Question, from the preview, the characters generated can have idle, walking, hurt, in 4 directions (nw, ne, sw, se). Does it also have attacking in 4 directions as well?

Hi Surabaya,

They don't include attack animations. These characters are intended to be non-aggressive NPCs to populate towns and other areas of the game to act as merchants, shop keepers, inn owners and townsfolk general. 

If you are looking for characters with attack animations you can fin them in Minifantasy - Creatures and Minifantasy - True Heroes.  Also, I add new characters and creatures every month as exclusive content in my Patreon.

If you have any other questions let me know :)

Bought the whole bundle, my suggestion for this pack would be additional premade for each profession NPC, I find one for each seems lacking ;) 

Question about 50% discount for Patron, how does it works, Is it in the form of coupon that has limited use. And the discount can only be used only when I'm currently a patron?

Thanks, Surabaya! I will have into account your suggestion, I always try to improve the asset packs based on you guys feedback :)

The 50% discount is applied on individual packs under request for active Patrons. However, if you just got the full bundle you will not need the coupons as the collection bundle has a better discount, almost a 70%. Also, active Patrons get all a new asset pack released on itch.io at no extra cost every month, plus monthly Patreon exclusive content.

Hi Alvin! I'm happy you like Minifantasy assets :) 

I'm not really sure if they will work well with GB palette. My guess is that you will probably need to do some colour editing to get them fully matching the palette limitations. 

Do you know there are 2 free asset packs? Minifantasy Dungeon and Minifantasy Forgotten Plains. If you didn't do yet, you can download both and do some test. 

If you have more questions or want to speak further about it you can reach me in Twitter @krishna_palacio. 

I would love to see it working in a GB game! ^^
