A downloadable asset pack

Buy Now$9.99 USD or more

REQUIREMENTS: This is an animation expansion for my Character Base asset. It adds two new pages of animations, so you must own the Character Base in order to use this.

This asset adds two new pages of combat animations to my Character Base. All these animations revolve around using a spear or polearm, and include the following actions, all in four directions:

  • Drawing/sheathing a spear
  • 4-frame combat-ready idle
  • 4-frame combat-ready move
  • Slashing attack
  • Thrusting attack (2 versions)
  • Parrying an attack
  • Evading an attack
  • Getting hit by an attack
  • Getting knocked on the ground
  • Lunge/leap forward
  • Retreat/leap backward

I've also included a text file explaining all the animations, along with some suggested timing, and a sample gif showing all the animations. As well as a separate sheet with all the spear and effect sprites so you can set up your own animations using elements of the base, or change the way I have them arranged.

The spear itself only comes in one variant and color palette, but the character sprite comes in each of the ten natural skin tones found in the original base.

Note: I plan to update this asset in the future, with a couple more animations, and alternate weapon sprites. Those additions will be free for anyone who owns this.

I notice the monster package is side-view. Is this package side-view as well?
I.e. does this base attack with its spear only to the left and right, or also upward and downward?
(my game is sort of a mystery dungeon meets zelda I adopted by chrono trigger... thing)
(and is in desperate need of better art than mine)

From the product description:

"All these animations revolve around using a spear or polearm, and include the following actions, all in four directions:"

Sorry about that.
Thanks for the prompt response.

I feel the Terranigma in this one.

Are there any outfits that go along with these animations?

Not yet, I'm afraid. It will happen eventually, but I might finish a couple more combat add-ons before doing them all at once.
