WJ4 Asset Sharing

Recommended Posts

A thread to find assets you need, and donate assets that you have. If you've made something cool the rest of us can use, great! If you know where to get some good free stuff, even better! If you know where DB Cooper hid the rest of the money, doubleplus extrabetter!

If you want to specifically use assets from a previous gamejam you can leave a message here, DM the person, or more likely ask for them in the #game-dev channel of the Slack!


Because of how big the list is, any "tools" or "engines" will be found over on the main announce page for the Jam in time. This is just for stuff that is already made and you can use. If you have any other suggestions, please feel free to reply in this thread.

Just a reminder that the Jam will be hosted over at the Itchio

There's also a thread about Eric's songs where he regularly updates about new pieces he's made. You can see it here:

I expect he'd appreciate hearing from people who use his stuff. ^^

For anyone trying out Unity for the first time, I have a draft project up on git that you should feel free to download and consider using as a starting point for your game.


It contains some basic stuff that takes up time and you often won't think of until you are down to the wire and would rather be adding some other finishing touches (or hidden jokes). 



  • Basic game state machine to help you lock down when certain actions can occur without millions of confusing if-thens.
  • Basic title screen that you can adjust to meet your needs.
  • Basic GUI for title screen and in-game menus. 
  • Absolutely nothing aesthetically pleasing is provided so that you can be motivated to make it look good yourself!
  • A simple sample game object to show how you might use the state machine provided.
  • A pauser. Press "p" to pause if you keep it as-is.
  • Pull up in-game menu with the escape key. All action will stop in the game while the menu is active.


Please download the project and feel free to send me suggestions/changes, or make your own branch through git if you want to work that way. This can be improved to be a simple framework for anyone to use and save a few headaches when you just want to jam!


Check it out here!

Keeping busy at my in-laws' over the holiday:



If anyone wants a high quality recording in this style, maybe to add some ambient nature sounds to a game, I can make something. I was thinking if I find some good fart noises, a pretty solid swamp ambiance could emerge.

I give blanket permission for Wizard Jammers to use any of my music, which can be found at


I'm also planning to make some annoying stuff built out of "bird noise, "fart noise" and other such iconic noises over the course of the jam. 

Nice one!
