I just made this image for my game, a flashback that the main character has of a costume party. I don't know if I should use it or not however, mostly because of quality control.

If you would be so kind, please tell me if I should keep it... or delete it.
I think you should keep. Your style is quite distinct and flashback pics are always nice to include in your game.

The maps in Effervesce Fallacy™ are condensed, and full of action! :biggrin: This was a game design decision made early in development to eliminate unnecessary padding that is present in a lot of RPGs and to enhance the experience on touch screen devices by not having any screen scrolling present. A lot of care went into the maps, such as consistency, and intelligent restriction of player movement.

We've experimented with larger, and more natural-looking maps, but they lacked the charm of the classic games that we're familiar with.

first off never delete your work believe in yourself bla bla bla

second style can make up for even a BIG deficit in technical ability, and this has LOTS of style

Haven't uploaded anything here in a while. Here's some shots from a city I've worked on a bit. Not finished yet. I think other city areas will be other mapped zones.

@alice_gristle It's to add a foggy environment :D It's paired with some varying light rain effect.

Kenen your UI is just so clean and sharp dude. It's great!
Looks good Softcloud!
That fog effect might be a tad bit too much though.

Early spring and the snow still hasn't melted!

@Stapleton ooh I love the layering here! It looks so pretty! Edit:
Moreover the HUD you've implemented it quite refined. This is really good work. Quite inspiring!

EDIT#2: @Stapleton @alice_gristle Thank you for your comments. I lowered the fog down and it looks much better now. :kaojoy:

I'm nowhere near good at making maps, but I try the best I can. Here's some examples and I hope they are decent enough to look passable. :)

Town: Chilriva (This is the first thing I ever designed for my game)

Dungeon: Flora Forest (This is close up, but it's just a lot more of this)

Building: Item Shop (I hope it feels like a real store, at least kind of)

A mountain peak. Looks decent enough, I hope? =W=

@Meowsticks Shrink the store map. A bit too much empty space. You can probably cut it by 2x2 tiles, at least.

@Mr. Detective, looks nice and airy! I always like the lone tree at the top, too! On the whole looks a bit too sculpted tho, don't you think? Like it's a bunch of clean rectangles piled on top of each other? Could you break the clean lines up a bit to make it look more organic and natural?

Reduced fog and recorded more footage. Sorry, I think the screen capture program is a little laggy.

This made me laugh, I finally solved the mystery of the missing puzzle pieces.... Only to create the mystery of the space trees. Still it looked pretty cool in an odd sort of way, so I figured I'd share. :LZSwink:

Jeez...
I finally decide, after several ppl asking me to, to create a gamethread about project M... And my internet craps out on me halfway through the process :(
making my first game is like trying to stuff all my experience with old games into one
so its slow and painful when i dont get it right... i bet the next game is gonna be finished earlier!
When you don't find any time to work... :kaocry:
First Ten Minutes of my Caretaker inspired game

Finally, I got a good Gmail message [from smg5urded]
"This game does look a bit plain, but, I'm sure this does not destroy the experience as a whole. Monsters fit your style of game-play, mapping looks crude but I'm sure you can make it better if you do a remake of Forgotten Eclipse"
