(Locked) Envato’s Most Wanted: Game Assets - $5,000


#1

This event is now over. Winners Announced Soon!

Envato's Most Wanted

Introducing: Game Assets!

We're extremely excited to announce the launch of Game Assets, our newest category on GraphicRiver! We've taken note of all our talented authors who have been creating high quality items with specific design and functionality suited for use in video games and game development. This Game Assets category will better showcase these unique items, and let the game development community know that GraphicRiver is the place to go for these functional and flexible assets.

We’ve further clarified our submission requirements for this new category and what it means for an item to be a Game Asset. First and foremost, to be accepted as a Game Asset your item must be game specific, with game relevant design, layout, and features. If your item is not created specifically for use in games, it should simply be submitted to the appropriate non-game asset GraphicRiver category as usual.

Please Read The Full Game Assets Help Center Article Here

We’ve also already identified and recategorized a number of our current items as Game Assets. If you believe your existing item also qualifies as a Game Asset and would like it moved to this new category, please let us know here.

Finally, to celebrate this exciting launch, we've put a $5,000 bounty on the head of Envato's most wanted file type - Game Assets on GraphicRiver.

quick question, can submissions be made with psd? :slight_smile:
Like what i mean to say is that it will all be done with vector shape tool and layer styles and stuff, will it be a problem? :slight_smile:

I think it is possible. In Game Assets Submission Requirements it stated “Depending on the nature of the assets you have created, Game Asset items should follow the technical requirements outlined in our Vectors and/or Graphics submission requirements.”


#10

This category will accept both SVG and PSD items. With the PSD items, you will need to take extra care in optimising them for screen and making sure the elements are all on separate layers and easy to edit. This is the same as items in the Graphics category, so I’m sure it won’t be any trouble :wink:


#11

OH! Shit :smiley: Really this is big opportunity must participate :wink:


#12

This is very cool!

Do we have to follow a particular theme?
e.g. jungle, space, industrial etc

also, can the Mobile GUI pack and Background asset pack have similar theme?
e.g.
Mobile space game GUI pack
Game asset - space game background


#13

“In order to be eligible for the above prizes, complete Game Kits must include all assets needed to successfully create a full game concept, including sprites, tilesets, user interfaces, and backgrounds (as applicable). We also have prizes for individual game asset types”

So, as long as your Game Kit has the same theme for all the elements, that’s fine :slight_smile: If you want to upload individual game assets, they will be judged separately to the Game Kits.

Yep, as Kate says a Game Kit should only include assets intended as part of the same theme/game. But the Most Wanted contest itself is open to Game Assets items of any style or genre! Shooters, builders, platformers, puzzlers, sci-fi, fantasy, adventure, casual, kid friendly, retro, and anything else you can think of! :slight_smile:
