Graphics update complete!

Focusing on the post-compo is starting to pay off. Except for the HUD, particles and background, every other graphic has been redone. As soon as I finish reworking the graphics, I’ll begin to modify the gameplay. That will be the ‘post-compo version’. I plan to later redo the game itself, adding enemies, waves and bosses (there’s already a new ship, though :)).

I usually make a black and white sprite and then use an “multiply” layer to color it. This helps me to make sprites quickly (as I don’t have to bother select exact colors every time, only the tone) but makes the sprite somewhat plain and boring. Now I’m using 8 tones with 4 shades each, what made everything better looking (and clearer).

Take a look at the boss graphics evolution:
