Take your game back in time to the modern era with the Old School Modern resource pack. The crisp pixel-based style recalls games of the early console era, with fresh new tiles that provide limitless possibilities. Create towns and cities with modern homes, stores and office buildings. A variety of tiles provides everything you need to build the wilderness around your towns, including dungeons like caves, temples or a technology maze. And populate that world with all sorts of characters designed to fit in with style!

Characters and matching battler graphics expands the possibilities offered by Old School pack. NPC characters fit into the modern world, playing roles that range from an army soldiers to football cheerleaders. Monsters come in classic varieties, from beasts and insects to vampires and zombies.

Note: The graphics in this pack were originally released in two separate RPG Maker DLC packs. I've compiled all these assets here into a single pack for this release. Unlike the OSM packs on Steam, this "full version" of the Old School Modern pack is not restricted to use in any specific engine.

This pack includes:

  • 96 human characters (4-directional walking sprites)
  • 48 monster and animal characters (4-directional walking sprites)
  • 79 large single-frame battle graphics that match the walking sprites
  • Additional animated sprites: vehicles, fish, treasure chests, doors.
  • Tiles: interior and exterior tiles for modern towns and houses, wilderness: forest/mountain/caves/swamp, temple ruins, tech-dungeon and overworld.
  • a whole bunch of miscellaneous ui stuff

License Summary

Any plans to make more of this style tilesets?  For Ex. seasons, more buildings, random indoor/outdoor items? 


I'm currently working on a remaster with expanded tilesets! The colors will be improved and there will be a lot more buildings and objects. Stay tuned! :)

That's great news. Will it be released here or on your Patreon?


It'll be released everywhere I can :)

Do you have attacking animation for the characters?

Not for these ones. Just regular walking sprites.

Can I use these graphics in RPG Maker MV?


Hello, do I have to edit anything or it's perfect for use on RPG Maker MV? Thx!


you just need to resize the characters about 150℅.The cars need to be mirrored and some other stuff. but if youre going to make a game for real this pack is worth any little adjustments it may need.

Can you post some more map example pictures, i bought this here and i believe vx ace had map examples. i justwant to see pictures, for example i dont know how to tile the observatory. and i noticed the overworld theres a church, can i make that too using the tiles for a full sized church?


Yeah, the observatory tiles are awkwardly arranged in the set (there's a ceiling part underneath the dome tiles, but it looks kinda like a wall and I can see how it would cause confusion) -- use the walls/doors from the other B-layer houses. Here's a quick example I just put together for you: Observatory

Haven't made specific church tiles-- maybe I can add it to the set, idk-- I'll take a look thanks. :)

I already have this on Steam for VX Ace. Does the "you can use it anywhere" still apply?

The Steam version is an RPGMaker exclusive license. The packs here on itch.io you can use in any engine. :)

Okay... =(
