What is BRINDIE FREE

Building an online presence for your game is a difficult and time consuming task. It’s challenging to build interesting content that will gather attention, but that’s just one part of it. There is a huge amount of work just to get your game’s store, Facebook, Twitter, etc. up and running, and a subset of that work is creating graphical assets that must comply to the size specifications of each online service. This means A LOT of different art asset sizes which, as game developers, we did on a case by case basis – and that was a huge time sync. This is why we made this guide and aim to update it regularly, so that asset creation for online social presence can be a little bit less frustrating task.

This guide is a list and a pack of source files available on GitHub. It contains .ai (vector graphics/ Illustrator) files with templates, so you can just pick that up and do your assets. We added everything we used and built so far, and will continue to add as we push our own games on various other places on the internet.

THE LIST

Here is the list of art assets per service. We marked down what is mandatory and what is optional, but of course, you can never really do enough to promote your game – we recommend doing the optionals as well. This is a Size Guide but if there are any naming conventions that must be respected, we mentioned that as well.

THE SOURCE FILES

This is a Work In Progress collection of AI files that contains all the sizes, in artboards and boxes, for every service. For example, the Steam Store Page.ai file  has precisely 7 art boards of these exact dimensions. Each artboard is named as asset that you need to create, and it also contains a box of the exact same dimensions that you can use to make clipping masks.


We really hope this helps! As indie devs we have too much to do as it is and so we just did this for future Valiant Game Studio, so it is easy to create all these assets for our next game and not spend an indefinite time making assets on a per need basis.

If you find this useful and want to help, then what would make us the HAPPIEST is Stars on GitHub <3 <3 <3 (ah, vanity!) and … just share it so you make one indie dev’s life a little bit easier?!
