Post news RSS Improved visual style for Olvand

In this blogpost, I announce a quite extreme shift in Olvand's graphics: we're going to the pre-GameBoy Color era!

Posted by on

Hi all, a quick message about an important decision I made. I'm going to the visual style completely in the next update. My thought process:

1. Olvand looks retro.
2. Retro is cool.
3. If Olvand would be even more retro, Olvand would be cooler.

And what looks even more retro? Right! The look of GameBoy games before the GameBoy Color! A quick snapshot of how Olvand looks at the moment:


Let me know if you like it!

That's just the beginning! the next step is to reduce the sprites to 4x4 pixels and implement a black and white palette, but that's just if you wanna go off the charts. It's super effective! :)
