Ignore Quarry, he's bad at feedback >:c
The colors are good for the background, but I think I'd change the character's color. Maybe a purple?
@mushroomized - The character's color could be changed, or you could give it an outline. The black blob stands out more than the main character (I would assume) because of its high contrast, as Quarry mentioned. If you make the main character have higher contrast, or perhaps higher saturation, it might stand out more. I like the look you've got, though.
I plan on working on some kind of lighting system- so I will have to see how that works out first, in the meantime -
When the player starts to "die" -- (You don't so much die as get flipped back to another dimension- strange concept im building on that I will write up more about in the future, but there will be times when you do want to die...)
and now I will stop spamming the thread until I have something interesting to show.
As always, thanks for the advice
