Can someone tell me if the icons and images of TravianZ in this GitHub project are public domain?

I need to create a similar game and need only the town / buildings images. Seems the project was abandoned so I don't know who to ask.

The image folders of that repository contain this notice:

So it looks as though these assets were copied from a previous adaptation of the game, and the prior copyright would still apply to them.

If you cannot find a statement from the authors releasing these assets into the public domain, then they are not in the public domain. Not enough time has passed from the date shown above for the original creators' copyright to pass into public domain.
