Trying to keep busy this summer? Working on the next great mobile game? Looking for some awesome assets? This post from Bart Jacobs is where you need to go...

Power Up Your Mobile Game With Design, Sound, and Music

A successful game needs to be beautifully designed and immersive. Most game developers aren't good designers, though. And it doesn't stop with design. Sound and music are just as important to captivate people playing your game.

Fortunately, you don't have to be a design or team up with one to create a fantastic game. You can find all the resources you need for your game on Envato Market. In this article, I give you an overview of what you can find on Graphic River and Audio Jungle to help you create your next mobile game.

1. Game Kits

Envato Market is an excellent resource for finding original, high quality assets for your next game. Whether you are building an endless runner or a tower defense game, chances are you can find several great game kits on Graphic River. Let me show you a few examples.

This game kit is packed with graphics, from backgrounds to menus and, of course, tanks, bullets, and bombs. The item even includes several animated GIFs to illustrate what you can accomplish with the included assets.

3. Sound Effects

Audio Jungle is a fantastic resource for finding sounds and music for games. It offers thousands of items for game developers. Showing you a list of items isn't going to help you find what you are looking for. Instead, visit Audio Jungle and browse the Game Sounds category. You may want to add a few filters to find what you are looking because there are thousands of items to choose from.

4. Game Music

A good game also needs music. A game quickly becomes boring when all you hear are sound effects or, even worse, nothing. Audio Jungle can help you out with this too. It offers a range of items for several types of games. It is important to look for items that can be easily looped, like this casual gameplay loop by Ghetty.

Conclusion

No matter how good your game is, it isn't complete without a great design, sound, and music. I hope this article has shown you that you don't need to spend a lot of money to find what you are looking for. Visit Graphic River and Audio Jungle to get started.
