Back to nature

We have a lot of new ideas at the moment. I’m constantly amazed at how we keep making simple decisions that seem to improve the game by a lot, and then going back and realise how much I don’t like the old versions compared to the new ones. Looks like backgrounds are going to be “hand drawn”. We’re also meddling around with a few new sorts of effects. I think we’re pretty much going to scrap things like traditional explosions in favour of something a little more artistic and unique. I think I’m going to have fun experimenting with this. :3

    Hand drawn?

    I know.. it’s a bit of a clumsy way to describe it. Initially the backgrounds were to be represented entirely by pixel art – a process wholly exhausting and (in the opinion of others) not as aesthetic. When I say “hand drawn” I mean digital canvassing – like openCanvas or Photoshop art.
