# RPG Maker XP Style (2D Top-Down RPG) Sprites and Tilesets Collection

I'm creating a bunch of games similar in style to RPG Maker XP -- 2D, top-down style adventure/action/RPG. I used RPG Maker XP in the past, and their sprites are great. Their content is packaged into something called an "RTP", which is a collection of sprites, tilesets, etc. which is available for exclusive for use with their tool.

Is there an alternative, free RTP I can use out there? Or, is there a large collection of freely-available material I can use? The standard RTP comes with most common tilesets (forest, grassland, desert, snow, 100 types of people, etc.) so I need something similarly comprehensive.

(To summarize, my question is: is there an existing, free to use collection of RPG Maker XP style assets I can use somewhere out on the web?)

• @Tetrad these are not related to the style that I'm looking for in particular. I need a specific format and style. – ashes999 Jun 1 '11 at 15:42
• Whatever you find, be sure to read the legalese carefully, there exist extremely convoluted definitions of free. – aaaaaaaaaaaa Jun 1 '11 at 19:37
• Someone rejected my edit. I don't think a lot of people know what RTP files are, and while a lot of people will have heard of RPG Maker they won't necessarily know what art style that makes. This question needs a better title, so someone, please write something fitting. – aaaaaaaaaaaa Jun 2 '11 at 10:41
• @eBusiness done. I've also added a sample; although I believe my description of RTP explained it. – ashes999 Jun 2 '11 at 11:13

If you can muster to pay 9$, there is a bulk of 1000+ legal sprites here you can use : RPG Sprite Set (Not made by me tho, but i have bought a copy myself and they look fair enough.) • +1 Brilliant! I believe I will buy it. Cheers. But, I'm looking for something more general and wide-spread too. – ashes999 Jun 1 '11 at 15:44 • Well, i know how it sounds, but unless there is something within easy reach, the best thing is actually to buckle up, find a good pixel app, and start drawing. Yes, its a drag, but its the only way you can get 100% what you want. But first, it pays to search sites like these. Once you paid the fee, your free to use the sprites in your game. – Nils Munch Jun 1 '11 at 16:51 • You need the$135 license if you want to sell the game. – aaaaaaaaaaaa Jun 1 '11 at 19:30
