16x16px RPG character sprite sheet for up to down games.

Adapted from opengameart.org "NES-Style RPG Characters" and "More NES-style RPG Characters".

License: CC BY-SA 3.0

It comes in 2 styles: old style (original) and new style (revamped by me). 

For the "new style" I included the original aseprite file, which has the animations with the sprites in different layers: hair, head, clothes, body so you can customize your own easily.

The 2 styles animated and compared:

Top: Old Style, Bottom: New Style


New Style:

Old Style:

can i trace it for my game?

Hey what do you mean by trace? to use it?

Everyone is asking me the same it’s nice to ask but you don’t need to :)

Please read the description, the assets can be used in any kind of project, since the CC license allows it.

I am going to use this for npcs in my pixel art top down game would you like credits on the product page or in the in game credits?

Credits are nice, I wouldn’t say no :)

people using this in their projects are not required to give credit, but thank you anyways!

It's amazing, Thank you very much.

Hi! I really like these characters! I understand it's okay to use them for commercial projects? Do I credit your name here on itch?

Edit: is it okay to recolor as long as I mention that it's recolored?

Thank you!

yes You can modify them, it’s CC licensed

May I use these for commercial use? The license and README doesn't state that it is not okay for commercial use.

Really Cool Characters! I would like to use them in the Autumn Game Jam, is that okay? :) You will be credited of course :D

I got them from the GDevelop 5 Asset Store and they look slightly different i think, but it redirected me to your page ^^

Reminds me of Dragon Warrior 3 on GBC :)
