Now if you want a beautiful sprite based game, look at Knytt Underground. In terms of lighting effects and assets, it looks really pretty.

So does nifflas' previous game Saira. I really adore his stuff. I can't wait to get Knytt Underground.

Nifflas is just great at ambience. Even the old free knytt or within a deep forest are really good.

Ewww. It was hard to tell what it was in the videos I'd watched. I've never really liked that technique much. At least with 2.5D or whatever it's called if you throw enough artists and money at it, it looks absolutely awesome.

Aye, this.


Though, in reality, graphics arent something I even bother thinking about at all when deciding on games to play.    Even if I did, well, quite frankly I think that a huge amount of modern games are absolutely ugly.  It's been a very, very long time since I've seen a game that can genuinely impress me with visuals.  Occaisionally a game will manage a rating of "nice, I guess", but that's it.

Darkout had shiny colors, but the gameplay simply wasnt up to par, or even close.... and that's all I needed to utterly turn me off of it. 

Of course, I'm aware that it is unfortunately true that many gamers DO care, but still, some simply wont.  In my case, I'll stick with my sometimes-really-old shmups and ASCII roguelikes, thanks.


.....I forgot where I was going with any of this.

That seems to be the theme for this thread over the last few pages...

I'm old and easily sidetracked and confused.

So how bout that Valley 2? I can't stop playing it.

I didn't like the art when it just became Black emptiness, which is all of the buildings in the game.
