About This Software

Indie Graphics Bundle is a content pack comprised of modular graphic .PNG files that can be combined, remixed, or modified to create your own sprites. The current pack includes over 20,000 graphic files with more to come.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The IGB is not a game or software application

To be fully utilized, it needs an imaging editing program or game engine. Our graphics have already been tested in many Game Engines available on Steam. The IGB is great for game prototyping, placement graphics, or final product.

Key Features:

1) Create Unique Creations - On purchase, you receive 20,000 graphic files, we are still developing much more.

2) License - Use the Steam IGB Package for your game, web, print, or other commercial development project. All assets are royalty free, no hidden costs.

3) New Content - Content evolves depending on support. Get us to work on what you specifically want.

4) Full Access - You may edit, manipulate, and change the graphics in any way for use with your game development. Some Photoshop files included.

THIS IS NOT SOFTWARE! If you go into that expecting software, you're going to be disappointed.

This is a collection of royalty-free 2D art, which is something that is very very hard to find on the internet. As a developer, I've used bits and pieces from this product in AI War: Fleet Command, Bionic Dues, and The Last Federation.

Do I think that you could sit down as a novice and just create a game from whole cloth with this pack? Probably not. This isn't game-creator software, and there isn't 100% of what you would need for any particular genre of game. You'll still need some supplemental art.

That said, there is a ton of good-to-great art in here (that varies a bit), and a very small amount of questionable art. Some folks are complaining about the price, but what you're looking at here is a ton of artwork for the equivalent cost of what would be a few hours of an artist's time.

In other words, if you're serious about game development and have a project in a genre of these sorts, this is a steal of a bargain. If you're trying to do a $0 art budget game, and you have no art skills of your own, then you'd probably have a rough time just using this. You could do it, it would just be hard.

Taken for what it is, I heartily recommend this. Just be sure you understand what this (or any other product!) is before you buy it.

It's ok. But everything is just so haphazard. For example:

-Some graphics have layered PSD versions, some don't.

-Some graphics look painstakingly illustrated, while others look crude and slapdash.

-Some animation sequences are poorly named, causing most programs to display them in the wrong order when importing.

-The folder structure is all over the place. Want some rocky ground? No problem, just go to \jungle scene & platform\rocks .........or......... mini packs\spaceforce\terrain ............or........ \landbuilder ..........or......... who knows where else. Searching won't always help, because not all files are named helpfully.

-The pack is all over the place stylistically - pixelart, painterly, cartoony, 3D render, etc. - yet chances are that no one style is represented enough to really be useful for a whole game.


Because of the haphazard nature of the pack, and the uneven quality of the graphics, this isn't really suitable for anything more than a backup library that you dip into infrequently, for placeholders or starting points. That's all I personally needed it for, so it's done its job, and I'm reasonably satisfied.

However, for what it is, it's definitely overpriced. I feels very "quantity over quality", yet the quantity of graphics isn't even that great. At this price, I can't really recommend it.

Sprites are not bad. These are good, and useful for developers.
Also, Price is not too bad when i think free royalty and how many sprites are put in IGB.
However, Some folders names are vague (Example as 'Effect2', 'Shot1'). It may be good if they are named more detail (like 'Green color Hit Effect', 'Red color gun shot'). Furthermore, IGB Application in steam isn't useful, Because This app doesn't give any functions to you, If you click 'Open Graphics Folder', this app doesn't open it, just says 'All your files are located in Your Steam/SteamApps/Common Folder or where you had Steam download...'.

Anyway, in my opinion, This content is good. If possible, I recommend you buy this when this is in discount sale.

The best part of this package by far are the space assets. There are a lot of different ship styles, each with a lot of individual pieces that can be put together to create different looking ships that still look like they were made by the same culture. I can't really speak to the quality of the other assets, I haven't had need to use them. But for me the ship builder assets have made the purchase well worth it.

One caveat that I would fell obligated to put forward though is that as I was browsing through the other assets many of them were basically the same object in different colors. So you would have a collection of six different objects that become 18 or 24 objects just because each has 3 or 4 different color variations.

This pack is a MESS! I've read other reviews stating that the files are all over the place and that's pretty much true. There's no logic in the overall system on how the assets are stored, other than a general categorisation, while some assets could also belong to other categories. That means that you need to browse a lot when you're in need of assets for your game.

Then the comment that this pack also includes ALL assets from the other 2 packs (Character Creator - Graphics Pack & Space Galaxy - Graphics Pack) which I both reviewed as good. Those 2 packs hold around 6500 assets and this one just a bit over 20K. So for a bit over double the price you get a lot of extra assets!

Like those other 2 packs, these assets are NOT meant to copy/paste 1 on 1 into your game (though the platform tiles would allow you to). You do need to put in some extra work to model them into what you want them to be and make the game look more 'your own' than just a cheap copy/paste result with assets that have been used in other games.

Couple of (negative) comments on the pack though
- Why on earth are there over 1500 assets of crystal gems that are all looking quite the same while it's only 13 different gems?
- Why are there hammer parts in the weapon creation pack (good pack in general IMO) while there's no wooden stick to connect them to (can make it myself, but WHY?)
- Why make icon packs and give them all different dimensions?
- Why make an platform pack that feels incomplete (though in general is well made)

Also worth to note, the pack is NOT worth the default price of €135. But I picked it up on the Stream Summer Sale for €34, which is more around the worth of the pack...
