This gate is very important to get right. The first critique I got is that it was difficult to read in monochrome. Is this version better? Anything else could improve?

Maybe you could make the entire door white and the bricks gray? Anyway, nice door.

I think the last one looks the best.

Also just wanted to ask, how exactly do you make this stuff?

I type the animations in a text editor. The tools are slow, I'll have to make my own tool for this.

Gameplay is c#.

I think you would give us better insight if you actually showed the torch inside the game with the environment, because after all you mostly need readability.

Great idea. I did spend a lot of time on the torch already, though. I'll come back to that. I'm weighting not having them at all because they are too visually similar to the wands, which are really important and I'm concerned about confusing the player. Thank you for the great feedback!

Highlighting the entire door as you did in your 2nd shot is definitely an improvement.
