Where to find free art for your games

Finding good art for your games is not an easy task. And if your budget is 0$ finding art is really hard. Here is my list of sites where you can find free and legal art resources for your games.

1. - amazing collection of cool stuff. Your number one stop for art resources.

2. - cool vector art made with inkscape. Actually inkscape is something very useful for creating simple but stunning vector images

3. - I don't need to describe this one or you've lived in a cave somewhere. You can use google image search and select an appropriate image license from the options.

Where to find quality free music and sound effects for your games

Music and sound effects are an important part of the game. Probably if you don't have them, your game will be overlooked by the players and portal owners and eventually you will consider it a failure. Although that is not always true and there are great games without any sound, its always better to have some high quality effects and nice music. Many people don't include music because they don't know where to find it.
I'll share with you where I choose music and effects for my games.
  1. - great music by Kevin MacLeod, licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0. You can learn more about CC3 license here - Creative Commons 3.0
  2. - at the good, old newgrounds you will be able to find anything, just be careful with the license
  3. - a lot of random game resources. You can find good sound effects and loops made by newbie composers. Again be careful with the licenses
  4. - tons of sound effects and loops. Great place to start your search.
  5. - just look around for appropriately licensed music

How to embed sounds and music in FlashDevelop AS3 project

Its really easy. Lets have soundfile sound.mp3 in folder music.

        private var musicClass : Class;        
        private var mymusic : Sound;

And then this:

         myMusic = (new musicClass) as Sound;                 ;

Here is the full sourcecode:

    public class MusicTest
        private var musicClass : Class;         
        private var myMusic : Sound;
        public function MusicTest()
            myMusic = (new musicClass) as Sound;         
        public function playMusic():void {


Strange Inspiration

For some time I have this idea - a platformer with flixel. Flixel is really cool game library for flash with lots of cool features (and some small things that I don't like but overall very useful library). So I've started a platformer and here right at the start I met an obstacle. And its a big one. I am not good at drawing. Of course I can buy art or find some free stuff but its not fun like this. I want to do it myself. And I want it to be pixel art. But my pixel art is ugly, I am a developer, not an artist and my knowledge about art is mostly theoretical. (I've read every f**** pixel art tutorial that I've found)
So then I thought - why not an ugly game? With constantly complaining character? I like the idea of game character that don't like the game and so on. Sounds cool, right?
So i decided I'll use 8x8 sprites and I'll make them. Actually they are not that ugly that I thought they would be but anyway they fit the idea.
