Dawnlike all started in the fall of 2013 as an idea. A crazy, ambitious idea called DawnHack. I had recently played NetHack, but was let down with the graphics. It was then that I decided I would make a tileset worthy of this incredible game! And so I began. I drew a giant ant. Then a bee, and then a soldier ant. I worked at a furious pace, churning out tiles at superhuman speeds. And lo and behold...after the first week I had blazed my way through the first 120 tiles, a total 11% of the 1057 tiles of NetHack. But little did I know, I had just taken my first brave bites out of the great whale I would one day consume.

And finally, after 3 months of on-and-off work, I ate that whale. Tail and all. Several devs including ais523 (NetHack4) and Patric Mueller (UnNetHack) found the tileset and contacted me for some expansions. I helped them out, and the Android versions of NetHack4 and UnNetHack now include DawnHack.

But I still wasn't satisfied. I lurked the web and discovered famous tilesets like Oryx's Ultimate Roguelike, Cardinal Quest, and Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup. I discovered that in the rogue-like community, there exists a high demand for high-quality, open source tilesets. Something to make rogue-likes more accessible...something to add a little pizazz...something to help newcomers discover they love rogue-likes! And so I bring you a colossal expansion of DawnHack. My time, my sweat, my magnus opus...Dawnlike.











  • 400+ Unique characters sprites including demons, humanoids, animals, elementals, etc.
  • 800+ Item sprites including books, potions, scrolls, currency, etc.
  • Basic 2-frame animation for all characters.
  • 6 Playable races with 8-16 classes each.
  • Simple menus and GUI.
  • 48 robust wall/floor tilesets.
  • Dozens of furniture, effects, traps and doors.
  • Almost-complete overworld tileset.
  • Two hand-made, monospaced 6x6 and 8x8 truetype fonts.
  • Examples of maps.
  • And much, much more to come...


Dawnlike is registered under a CC-BY-SA 3.0 license, meaning that you are free to redistribute or edit any part of this tileset as long as you do not take the credit for it. I cannot stop you from using this tileset commercially, so feel free to sell any games using Dawnlike.

If you use this tileset you must accredit DawnBringer. That mad color-bending genius came up with the palette this entire pack lives on. Without his palette, I would probably never would have even finished DawnHack. As for crediting me, I have a unique request. Inside "Reptiles.png" you will find a Platino sprite. If you use Dawnlike, you MUST use this sprite and hide him very well!

And if you do use this tileset commercially, please consider sending a donation via PayPal to [email protected]. I am a freelance pixel artist, so time spent on this project is money lost. Donations will greatly help solve this.

This is really decent art considering its free, you may want to link it over in the creative commons pixel art thread.

Nope, but those are high on my priorities as well as water puddles. I'll get those to you this evening. So until then, feel free to just color-pick colors from this tileset and use ovals as placeholders.

Much obliged! Sorry it took a while for me to get those sprites to you. I decided I wanted to wait until the next update where I'd package them in.

Ohh...Cool! I'll be looking forwards to seeing some screenies in the devlogs. :D

This is pretty nice, I like how it's animated slightly — we need more animation in roguelikes!

...I'm honestly probably going to sit here and find a game jam just because of the hiding Platino requirement. I like easter eggs like that...

EDIT: Well, finding that game jam was quick, what a stroke of luck! http://7drl.org/
