    Windows 8 Tiles for games


    I hope some of you are gamers, and I know it looks ugly when you install the game and see that there is no compatible tile for that game only small icon. Well, I tried to do as much as I can to make these tiles for you to use.

    Check out my gaming tiles on deviantart and I hope you'll like them.

    Awesome. I was looking into doing that because a couple of my games (particulary Mass Effect) are not Steam games and so don't work with Steam Tiles. But I didn't find any that were OblyTile friendly so I made my own.

    No, some tiles can be enlarged while some can't. Whoever made the game has the choice to do it.

    I don't recall that question arising. And it doesn't actually apply, as Desktop games don't normally have proper tiles.
