Finding the right game art to fit the style and theme of your game can be challenging. 2D and 3D game art comes in many different styles and formats. It can be tough to find the right pieces, especially when you’re on a tight schedule or budget.
Fortunately, Buildbox features a built-in asset library with over 2,000 game assets that you can instantly add into your game. With our easy-to-use asset library that’s searchable from within the editor, you can find the perfect art for your game in seconds. You’ll find everything from 2D sprites to 3D environments, animations, backgrounds, buttons, and more. And it’s all in one place.
Exploring the Asset Library
You can even use the Search feature from within the editor to find specific art. Say you’re building a racing game. You can search for all the 3D models of cars in Buildbox by typing ‘car’ into the search bar. From there, you can search for specific cars such as the Lamborghini or look for roadways and race tracks.
You can also find original game art and assets made by creators from our Buildbox community.
Below are just a few of our favorite 3D game art and asset bundles from Buildbox creators that you’ll find in the asset library.
