Not Tetris 2 was lacking an icon and I was bored again so this happened:

“Not” icons
ImageImageImageImage
From left to right: 16×16, 24×24, 32×32, 48×48 pixels. Format is always PNG.

“Stack” icons

From left to right: 24×24, 32×32, 48×48 pixels. Format is always PNG.

“Tilted S” icon

16×16 pixels PNG

Yes, all sizes were created multiple times. That’s because I am not sure which style to choose. The “Not” icons are of course a pun (well, sort of) of the game’s name and are more metaphorical. It fits to the name well but do not show the game’s uniqueness. I also created them because of the Not Pacman icons I posted to keep the “tradition” of the “not” style. ;-)
The “Stack” icons are clearly informational; they directly show the uniqueness of the game. Same for the “Tilted S”. If these icons were seen on some software webpage, players immediately know what Not Tetris is actually about. ;-) (Yes, some webpages do publish the game icons, for example, Sourceforge shows the 48×48 px icons)
Because I were not sure which style (pun or “mini screenshot”) to choose, I simply created both. Which style do you like more?

I don't know why you keep thinking these games don't have icons.

No offence but the crossed out icon looks like something you'd find on a 1998 icon pack CD.

Maurice: I do not have .exe files, I use GNU/Linux. For Linux distributions, icons are handled different under any Linux flavor, most use a standard called XDG. On such desktops, there are no .ico files, icons are not embedded in the executable, and so on. XDG-compliant desktops are able to use PNGs and SVGs (and other less-known formats). Oh, I have indeed discovered an icon GIF in the Not Pacman LÖVE file but not in the Not Tetris 2 LÖVE file.

Sašo: No offence but Not Tetris 2 looks like something you find on a 1989 Game Boy. :D So it is perfectly legitimate for an icon to look like from a 1998 icon pack CD. Oh, wait, probably not, it may be too modern. xD
And if my icons actually suck, then the current icons suck even more. If you know how to do it better, do it. :P

Both: If you still think your icons are better and don’t want to change them, then please fix at least the Not Tetris 2 LÖVE source file (and in the Linux version, too), I didn’t find any icons in it.

That's because the linux downloads aren't executables.
Also please don't be so offended.
