Are you a game developer or game designer? Are you searching for free graphics for computer games? Than you know the best, how quality graphic is important for your application, no matter if it is for Android, PC, or Mac.
Gamers have been always attracted to quality graphics. Yes, you can create a wonderful video game with an interesting story and amusing gameplay, but how will you convince people to download / order your game without an attractive in-game appearance? Many consumers look in screenshots first and if they do not like the graphics, they won't give a try to your game.
People should like it at first sight; but how, when this is all about the personal preference? In general, more detailed and realistic illustrations are more popular. However, a good graphic designer is able to make a minimalistic good looking sprites / textures for any computer game.
Of course it isn't enough that every picture in a game is nice and detailed, but a crucial aspect for gamer's overall impression is in-game graphics uniformity and color balance; especially if you develop a 2D video game. To be more specific, all pictures should have approximately same level of detail and they should match same concept. Imagine playing a realtime strategy game where one unit is a photorealistic soldier and another is a simple sketch made of a circle (for head), rectangle (for torso) and lines (for limbs).
But how can I create an attractive and uniform graphic for my game, when I don't know (or haven't money for) a professional designer? Then you should try free scalable pictures. You can edit them easily through Inkscape and change them to match one concept. Also you can quickly produce many color / shape / detail variations of one source picture; for instance, a different characters for your RPG / adventure game. Moreover, if you support vectors in your game engine, you are able to perform smooth picture transformations directly in it and your game will never disturb user's eye with ugly rasterized images. Especially mobile games developers know what we are speaking about, because they have to handle with different display sizes and resolutions.
