Best 3D Models For Medieval Games. Part 1 - Animals
If you're making a video game, why not make it a medieval or medieval fantasy game? Fantasy is great, especially when you can crib Tolkien's stuff and coast all the way to Steam Store. Of course, it would be easier if you didn't have to craft every last piece and asset of your medieval work. We understand that, and that's why our first article about low poly assets for $50 or less is focused on building medieval worlds. Check out our recommendations and vote below!
People need cats and that's not just because we need something cute to be around us all the time. For medieval folk, cats are great mousers, keeping their grain stocks and cheese wheels safe from tiny nuisances.
Ducks occur both naturally in ponds and in the yards of villagers as domesticated fowl. It also gives you the opportunity to use those wonderful soundbites of quacking.
Chickens are usually chickens (unless you're Richard Cypher, but in that case nothing makes sense in your life anyways), and they're easy to breed, feed and grow. No self-respecting serf would go on without at least one chicken.
Oink, oink, there goes your bacon, still in pre-alpha stage. Pigs are a relatively easy source of meat and bladder (you used them instead of glass in windows). You could probably figure out what to do with the tail, too, if you were so inclined.
Sheep give us wool and claymation adventures. Indispensable for peasants who dislike working naked!
Unfortunately, medieval settings lack tin cans for goats to eat, so I have no reason how they survived back then.
Wolves are always up to no good, either serving the dark forces or being a generic nuisance
Deer are there to be hunted by protagonists and killed in gruesome ways by monsters!
Other Wild Animals
Hares and bunnies are vital to the cuteness ecology of meadows and forest clearings.
Certainly one of the uglier birds out there.
Eagles are favored companions to both rangers and druids (but not at the same time).
Get them all in one pack!
Anyone can get a flying ship or a flying whale. Only the pros go for the flying turtle!
