Small Items


It just occurred to me today that as some of you fine folk may be planning 7dRL entries for this year, I should make a last ditch attempt to woo you! With that in mind, I'm going to try and get the next release of the tileset out this weekend.

One of the main things that the tileset lacks at present are items. While I still intend to soldier on with my grand plan for a System shock inventory system, there will always need to be symbols for the stuff that is actually on the dungeon floor. While I'm never going to depict 50 different swords within the space of a single tile, I at least need a symbol for swords as an item type.

Anyway, here is what I have so far, If you cant make out what something is, or if you have any specific requests leave a comment and I'll try and get a reasonably complete set of bits and bobs ready for the weekend.


  1. Any thoughts when to expect next release? :)

  2. I'm going to try and make it for this Saturday or Sunday. I can't be more specific than that though.

  3. So exciting!

  4. Another question: have you thought about making sci-fi/cyberpunk themed graphics like yours great fantasy one for roguelikes?

    1. Hi Dan,

      After I have finished with this project I might start over using a SF theme. I would probably use larger tiles though, as I can only really get away with such limited space here by using fantasy tropes. Making fiddly bits of tech or unusual aliens recognisable would require a few extra pixels.

      I will try and introduce a few more steam punk elements into this set - there will be a bit of this in the next post.


  5. Wow that's so exciting, thank you :)
