So, I've been doing a PICO-8 game development workshop for a while now. One of the ideas for the workshop that ultimately didn't pan out was for me to make a top-down tileset that would allow us to make a game during the workshop quickly.
The workshop went a different way, but a good tileset is a sad thing to waste - so I finished it, and I'm hereby releasing it to the PICO-8 community. The CC tag on the cartridge is not a coincidence - as far as I'm concerned, this tileset is public domain and you can use it and abuse it however you wish!
Wanted to make a PICO-8 medieval tactics game? A Heroes of Might and Magic demake? A Harvest Moon rip-off? A strategy game of some sort? This should help you at least a little bit :)
There is 64 empty tiles left to be filled. If you actually start a project and make some headway, I'd be happy to do a few tiles specific to your game, time permitting.
Lastly, the biggest reason I could spend the time to finish this tileset instead of working on $$$ projects is the people on my Patreon - so a big thank you to the guys and gals supporting me there :)
I've been hitting my ancient dos game collection looking for demake ideas and I look at this tileset and it just SCREAMS for a demake of Ultima 6 or 7. Well, Maybe not 7.. That game was so huge they had to break it into two parts each with two chapters. But maybe a demake of the B&W gameboy Ultimas.
