Thorns (Stylized 8x12 Text)
« on: November 04, 2018, 01:43:41 am »

Thorns is a tileset I sort of stumbled into making. I took a look at the Tileset Repository on the Wiki, and found two 8x12 tilesets I rather liked - Andux's Sleipnir and Taritus' unnamed set with curved walls. I combined the two, and in a fit of productivity, completely redid almost every character (except the walls). The aesthetic of Thorns is essentially that of Sleipnir, taken in a somewhat different direction and to its logical extreme. In short, it's spiky as hell, and many characters are also set off-kilter to some degree.

A quick example, showing the world map (using Vherid's Warm color scheme):

it has a nice look - like some nordic fantasy runes.
too bad that reading it would hurt my eyes after a while.
