Animated backgrounds just like Earthbound!


  • 10 backgrounds in GIF and spritesheets format.
  • 15 black and white backgrounds in PNG format.
  • 8 Palletes in PNG format


*These backgrounds can be used with easy in any engine with ease.

You can also download my Godot Example, the shader is CC0 and you can found here.

You can use in any engine, like Unity, I just don't tested, you just need to use the black and white versions in PNG.

If you want to know how the shaders in Earthbound works you can watch this video.


  • Q: What's the difference between the spriteshet and the Shaders?
  • A: The Spritesheet you can use in most engines as an animation, the black and white pngs are for shaders, you can use the godot example or even in unity (but I don't have an example )
  • Q: Why my background doesnt look like the ones in Earthbound/Mother?
  • A: The Earthbound backgrounds uses shaders, you can try the Godot example to see how they work
  • Q: Can I have the same result just using the png and no shaders?
  • A: No.. But they are still cool.
  • Q: Do I need to credit you?
  • A: Yes, credit is only needed on my free assets. And you only need to credit me if you use the pngs spriteseheets or black and white versions or GIFS, since the shader is CC0 license .

Incredible stuff! What is the licence on the spritesheets? CC BY?


Thanks! just put the license in the description, the closest creative commons license that I find is CC BY 4.0, but you cannot re-sell or distribute as an asset.
