All along i've had ideas for games but never means to make art for them. Always in my head I had the idea that all this game art was a hidden secret and you'd have to pay (a lot) for anything good. This doesn't seem like the case though. Hard as it may seem, I had never searched Google for free game graphics because I expected to come up empty, but there seems to be tons of stuff out there.
So me and this guy at my school may be able to make our game after all, since there seems to be quite a lot of generic stuff out there, we'd only need a few things really custom made. Also, I told him about the 4E4 contest, and we may also try to come up with something to enter there, of course there'd be a lot of entries that would simply crush us, but there's nothing to lose by trying. Heck, we may even be able to get credit at college for making it, since we're both taking a new class offering they have for "Simulation and Game Programming", that'd be great.
