      Successfully turned my protagonist's alcoholism into an interesting gameplay mechanic!

      Need opinions on my title screen: menu options ok in white or should I change them somehow?

        If you want to experiment changing the white, but keep that palette, the only colors I can think of are: Dark Brown (like in your selection box)... Dark Yellowish Brown... Dark gray... A low saturated indigo.
        Not sure though :p
        I like the pale fonts when the selection box is on them. And the current brown of the selection box is super nice...

        I actually like the brown of the selection box so much I'm redesigning my window skins around it. My battler artist (who is amazing) made that selection box just to illustrate something and I was like "SEND ME THAT RIGHT NOW"

        Good call it looks fantastic and professional.
        Looking at the title page again, I think the white letters are being overpowered by the image. So the white words are the last noticeable part on the screen.

        If you keep them white, try a font or size that has thicker letters. Or maybe a brighter white can stand out better.

        Awesome! :) I've been playing guitar for about two years now. I know Always On My Mind by Elvis and Learning To Fly by Tom Petty, but that's pretty much it ;)

      Savage car accident on Friday with gf and mum-in-law. All walked away pretty much unscathed but man, the Toyota that hit us disintegrated..

        Other driver was unscathed, my gf has a sore neck and her mum has a black eye. I was right next to the impact and didn't even get a bruise! This lady t-boned us without braking, obviously wasn't watching the road at all. We were driving an Altima, hers was a Corolla. The Altima took some damage to the wheel well and headlight and stuff, but the Corolla just folded like a bad poker hand

        Wow, that is scary and amazing. You must've had a lucky angel with you. I am so glad you are fine. (I think I should get an Altima...) *Mental hugs* to you & your loved ones.

        Thank you Starlight! Yeah, we have all sworn off Toyota forever. Altimas are great cars all around. I personally drive a Chevy Volt, which I love dearly but I'm sure it would not do well in a heavy crash like that!

      My amazing battler artist did it again! Brought a boss to life from a crappy bust and a vague description.

        Ladies and gents, meet Solomon Clarke, undefeated duelist and leader of the rebellion! Pro tip: Save before you fight him, for multiple reasons - he's HARD, for one, and for another, both his sword and pistol can drop from him - the pistol is Epic and the sword is Legendary.

      First boss is completely animated...except his collapse animation. I'm absolutely stuck for how he should fall over and die!

        @Dirge I like the knee... knee... faceplant. It has a grim feel to it, and it shows the enemy is fighting to stay alive, not giving up easily.
        You can do one where he falls to the ground, lifts an arm as if about to get up or cast a spell and collapses again. Or goes down 1 knee, 2nd knee, 1st knee back up.. and collapses.
        You got me, no you didn't, yes you did.

        @Nutty171 There actually is an enemy where that would work - they're kind of like possessed demon children. Gives that whole new flavour.

        @starlight dream I really like that idea. I've got the perfect enemy for a "struggling to get back up" one, actually... yeah, some of my best ideas have been from random threads I've read on here!
