How to get assets?


If you are indie developer and you don’t have graphics artists in your team it’s always hard to create a game. Lot’s of my indie friends struggle the same problem:

“from where can I get assets for my game?”

It isn’t easy topic but you should think about assets from the beginning of your idea/design. Keep in mind that you need to create game with assets that you can buy. The best approach for me is to search those sites and based of what I found I’m trying to find idea for a game:

  • Unreal Marketplace
    Its getting bigger and bigger every day.
    Don’t forget about Epic examples! You can use assets from them as well!
  • Unity Asset Store
    Currently biggest asset store for game developers. If you are buying 3d assets ask creator if package contains .FBX files. I see that new packages have Unity binary format instead of .FBX files that you can import to 3d program and export to UE4.
  • Turbosquid
    Focused on graphics only, but lot of assets!

Those are the first places for me to search. If I can’t find what I’m looking for I’m trying to find it on Google or change the idea. Searching for assets takes time but it’s always better to work on a project that have graphics that you like 😉

You probably know those sites and linking to Google isn’t so fun. That’s why every asset that I will use here will be linked and added to Assets Stores Links. Every asset that I will use in this project will be from Asset Stores.
