Hi, here comes what i was working on for the project lately!

I worked on a CRT shader to include rounded shape like old school TVs.

Then i tried to do a "16 bit like" boss intro shader, accidentally making this anomaly:

And last but not least, i'm refactorizing a lot of code to allow difficulty setting to pass different values to entities/enemies.

Don't be shy to ask or comment, feedbacks are importants for me!
Thanks, hope to see you in a next DevDiary!
Greg.

Man this CRT effect looks great. Instant nostalgia trigger.

The orbiting thing on the ship might be too distracting moving at that speed.

Do you believe it goes too slow? It's a module that shoot with you as you can see in Indiedb.com

I think it's too fast. Movement attracts the player's attention and they need to be able to focus on incoming enemies. A lot depends on how it looks in context in a running game, though.
