GUI To Meet You Two: Free UI Resources for Game Developers

game dev, resources

guiheaderSome time back, I wrote a long list of free user interface resources for indie developers for IndieStatik.com – user interface design, of course, being a particular and ardent love of mine having worked for a UI artist for a while now. Since that version isn’t cached anymore, I’ve decided to rewrite the list with a bunch of new additions to spread that love of sleek, easy user interface design. Some of these newcomers are things that I’ve been using quite a lot myself and others that are just ‘hey, that’s neat’. So, without further ado, go forth and interface!
