Just as the two friends are about to leave the town to call the police, they are both dragged into a compelling mystery surrounding the decietful past of the town, Hovgård.

It's a mix of environment light, color correction and sprites. Only the slight grain effect and the bars were added in Photoshop, nothing else. This is actually how it looks in-game.

Grain effect can be done in-game too, which I'm sure your team knows already.

I think the sandbox should be removed, or empty.

The environment looks to be extremely windy and cold (obviously). It would be illogical for someone to make a sandbox in such a place.

Nah, I like it. Gives it a sense of abandonment, like this used to be a happy town but what the hell happened?

Besides, it's clearly autumn/winter! And it's night! Of course the place is cold :P

I'd say leave it... but it could use a frosty texture (or perhaps some fallen brown leaves) to strengthen the 'sense of abandonment'.

Otherwise nicely done ;)

Agree, makes the whole scene look more abandoned.
