    Ubuntu Game Icons



    A personal project which I decided to share. We have a dozen of Ubuntu Gaming Rigs at work for the kids, so I thought some big flashy icons.

    Ubuntu Game Icons are also great if you're setting up a multimedia/gaming station with Boxee/XMBC etc.

    195 icons all 512x512 pix.
    If you have a wish/request for a game that haven't been added, please let me know and I'll make sure it will be added in the next update.

    Amazing work! =D>

    A couple good open source games that you should add are 0 A.D. and Sauerbraten.

    excellent work! please keep on with this project!
    Seems like I need to create a new theme for my typhon launcher to match your icons
    some suggestions:
    no idea if this would be much work, but a generic
    text on the top of the images without "ubuntu" would
    probably be very appreciated by non-ubuntu users (including me). I could overlay this though in the typhon
    theme :}

    would rock to have pictures for
    - cubosphere
    (http://sourceforge.net/projects/cubosphere/)
    - xmoto
    - frozen bubble
    - aba games: a7xpg, gunroar, mucade, noiz2sa, parsec47, rrootage, titanion, torustrooper, tumikifighters, valandrick
    ( http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~cs8k-cyu/index_e.html )
    maybe adding some pictures for emulators would be a good idea(?)

    the neverball picture should better be under FOSS btw

    Thanks for suggesting typhon launcher, wasn't aware about it. I'm going to check it out
    Do you have some cool images like; logo, art etc. I can work with. Just PM me with it if you have.

    I can do the emulators as well.


    The reason why it was with Ubuntu logo, is because it was meant as a personal project that wasn't idea to put on share. It would be tremendous work to redo them, may be when I feel this one is 'close to finished'.
    You could put a label upon the icon(s) where it says Ubuntu in gimp.

    I'll put the named games on my list you mentioned + emulators.

    Re: Ubuntu Game Icons

    wow, you're really fast with replying
    oh, no problem of course with the ubuntu text.
    I didn't know how much work it would be.
    Thank you very much for accepting my suggestions!

    regarding typhon:
    I'm afraid that apart from the bundled artwork and the few themes on my homepage I don't have any other gfx.
    which makes 3 official (+ gazillion of compatible ps3 p3ts :} ) themes atm.
    I just commited alphachannel support for previewpictures on the google code page
    At the weekend I noticed on my wifes ubuntulaptop, that
    ubuntusupport needs some attention in my code.
    opencv is quite old on ubuntu and therefore requires a version check and (at least on my wifes laptop)
    there seem to be problems with extracting the p3t themes into /dev/shm. haven't found out why yet.
    apart from that sfml2 needs to be built from source too, so I consider to optionally bundle/link statically
    until v2 is ready.
    I've attached a scrot of a quick&dirty modified pure theme using your outstanding icons

    It's incredible how a good presentation can increase the value. Good work.

    By the way the icon you made for World of Goo reminds me to Super Meat Boy's "cover" (that might have a Linux version soon).

    Dang. Wish you would have kept them distribution-agnostic and not branded them. Not everyone uses *ubuntu...
