Asset forge is an awesome tool built by Kenney who is well know for his video game asset collections. Asset forge has a wide range of usage from developers who need placeholder art or even utilizing asset forge and its building blocks as your art style. You can build both 3D assets as well as 2D sprites depending on your art style.
For me, I've found it to be a great tool and well worth the money to build my art assets and bring them into unreal engine so that I can get started on building out the game with my placeholder programmer art which I can always revisit with a real artist while I focus on the programming side of things.
Asset Forge has two versions, a base version at $19.95 and a deluxe version at $39.95 which can be purchased via the itch.io platform. With the deluxe version you get addtional block assets compared to the base version but both versions have the same features which is great. Asset Forge supports all major game engines from Unreal Engine to Unity, ThreeJS, Gamemaker and more.
