I've been working hard the last few weeks on trying a more interesting colored lighting style, it's an idea I got from some concept art I did.
Here's the concept piece with blue lighting to set the mood and some red highlights for that added danger element! I'm hoping to capture this style in the in-game graphics.
This is an early BG test of the X-range backgrounds, using the old standard colors.
This is the new test with the blue lighting.
I think more dynamic lighting will work really well in-game, and should add more mood and atmosphere.
Game Progress update
We're currently about 30% finished and all the music is done. I'm still working on making the game look more dynamic, but all the promotional stuff is ready. I'll be working on the game again this week, so more content to come!
