Game-Making Resources

Here’s a list of resources, and tips on making sure you’re doing things the right way. Please note that I’m posting my favorite sources. If you have any other resource places you want to suggest, feel free to note me, and I’ll add them to the list. [I’m posting this so other people and I can easily access resources without looking for days] c:
This list will be updated every time I find a new good resource, so make sure that you check back if you’re really interested in resources.  



MUSIC/ SOUND-EFFECTS

If you can’t make your own music, you don’t have someone to make music for you, or if you want sound effects for your game, it’s really nice to know sites that give you free, un-copyrighted sounds for use in non-commercial or commercial products. Here are some sites that offer completely free music. But make sure that you look at the license agreements for each site, or each track before downloading and using them.

http://freepublicmusic.com/

http://www.freesound.org/ [I like this site the best]

http://www.freestockmusic.com

http://www.musicrevolution.com/free_music/ [You can only use these tracks from this page in non-profit projects, fyi. And the rules are a bit stricter, so make sure you read them]

Stock Images/Textures

Again, check the license agreements

This is helpful if you don’t know color theory, and can help make colors more harmonious.
