When you look at a game, what comes to your attention immediately? It has definitely to be the visuals of the game! While Starsss is designed with the retro style and pixel art combination in mind, that doesn't mean that it can't be improved visually!

If you have seen the latest screenshots of Starsss, here's what the brick world looks like.

Starsss - Stars In Multiple Colors?

With Starsss, the stages are procedurally generated. This means that the platforms are always different when you reach a new stage, thereby creating a new experience every time.

Starsss - Beat vs the Brick World?

However, notice that the background is always blackish? So let's take it 1 step further! Let's welcome the new procedurally generated background!

Starsss - A More Immersive Experience?

With this new visual background, it creates a more immersive gameplay experience for you. It also indicates where you are in the world of Starsss. Every time you visit the brick world, you will get to see a different view of the cave in the background.

Starsss - A Procedurally Generated Background?

Adding on to the procedurally generated platforms of the stage, this combination will greatly enhance the replay value of Starsss. But it's also possible to make the background come alive!

Starsss - Tremors In The Background?

Did you notice that the cave in the background suffers from tremors every now and then? In addition, whenever there's a tremor, you can actually see rocks falling from the ceiling of the cave.

Nice!
To reply to your question "what comes to your attention immediately?" : from my point of view, it's the colors. I like the graphics but the color are quite sad.

hey rockford! Thanks for the feedback!

Do you think that the colors are in a weird combination or?

Nope. Just too much brown and unsaturated colors. But it could by a choice.
