Asset image


⚠️Note that this asset requires the UNITY Editor to run. Any exported spritesheets is normal PNG and can be used in any engines supporting spritesheet.



Finding high-resolution 2D characters in four directions can be a challenge. But an even bigger one is finding enough characters to populate your entire game! 2D Customizable Characters is a Unity solution specifically designed to solve this problem. This asset gives you two hand-painted and fully animated humanoid character models with in-depth customization options, allowing you to populate your game world with a wide variety of distinct and appealing characters.


Working with 2D Customizable Characters is as easy as dragging and dropping in the inspector. If you want to squeeze even more out of it, take advantage of various customization features through the runtime editor. When you feel satisfied with your character, there are several options to save it: simply export as a prefab, or if you prefer, export as PNGs compatible with your engine of choice.


If this sounds interesting, why not test the web demo and check it out for yourself!


• Two 4-directional characters (male and female), fully customizable, and suitable for top-down perspective projects.

• Customize in the Character Editor or the Inspector.

• Unity animations for idle, walk, run, swing attack, stab attack, bow attack, hurt, die.

• All art assets in PNG.

• Save and load prefabs (editor only).

• Export characters and animations to sprite sheets (editor only).

• Save and load characters with presets.

• Apply sets, for example, armor sets or outfits.

• Test play your characters with one click.

• Change customizations at runtime through the API


About the Characters

• Total size ~110×200px

• 3 rigs (up, down, side) created in a cutout doll fashion with each part animated by its pivot.


• Appearance: Change appearance details such as eyes, hair, facial hair, and more.

• Equipment: Change outfits from top to toes, such as shoes, armor, and weapons.

• Scale: If the proportions don’t fit your style, you can scale the length and width of the head, limbs, and body size, allowing for a wide variety of proportions.

• Facial Expression: Simple sets that change the facial appearance to create expressions

• Save anything or all from the above into presets that can be applied later.

⚠️ Disclaimers ⚠️

I found this generator through a Humble Bundle and I'm interested in this generator. I have a question, however: How easily can you add assets to this? I'm looking into a generator for my own characters so I can get some help making sprite sheets, and I'd be looking for ways to expand on this.

It depends on how comfortable you are with Unity (and creating art of course). When you have art done it's not that hard, you can have a look here for the steps:

A very good character tool, but I have a question, there are 2D sprite images for characters moving up, down, and right, but there isn’t one for moving left. Am I not using it correctly?

That's correct, the right direction is intended for both side views and to be flipped. I hope that makes sense!
