the underground section was intentionally made to be high contrast and very dark
A good call, it does look nice and contrast well. The kind of thing I'm suggesting is really just a few pixels of solid purple and dark grey (or bit of black to break up the edges) in the current purple dithered spots; just a 6 pixel difference can go a long way.

And for behind the pole, just something that transitions nicer between background and foreground textures, probably a lot of dark grey mixed into the purple.

This is looking amazing! That background is really looking good VBB!
Hope to see some more updates soon!

Yeah, with luck this'll be nice... thanks guys.

Well on the downside I'm home sick again, but that means more stuff will get done, hopefully I can make a mock-up of the second tileset, featuring vbb's other background... he's currently working on the third one, but I'll leave that one unshown so there's at least SOMETHING that'll be left a surprise. Anyhow I'll just do like yesterday and post updates in this message, though it should be more lengthy this time.

The shading leaves an obvious 'line' between the foreground and the background, now that I see it. I'll get to work on that, it will be a quick fix.

Awesome screenshot, I love it.
Pointitems could use some work, especially the first one, looks like something undefined, just flat and round.

@tulip Yeah its just... its just a piece of pepperoni :lol


These are the items, didn't really occur to me to re-post what they were.

Pepperoni
Chungella Cola (think that's what i originally called it)
Swiss Cheese (changed from cheese wheel... those could be tough to carry around.)
ToxicBubble (new name for the gum)
Purpsicle (may consider changing this name even yet)
Supah Mint
1UP Sandwich

Hey GARGapplesauce, items seem to be coming along well, and I was wondering whether you've decided on a raindrop replacement?

At the moment they're the only item i still haven't made... well they were originally to be bread crumbs, but... I myself have started disliking the idea, as more brown might just blend in with the environment horribly...

If you (or anyone else for that matter) has a better idea I'd love to hear it, it's just the thing that fit in when I was coming up with items.

1/100th of a 1-up sandwich = peas? :confused
Nuh uh, I think the breadcrumb can work, let me draw it.

I remade the pepperoni, see?

Image

It needed to be more round, whereas the old one looked more like a stop sign.
The problem with the 1-up sandwich is that it's small, and unfortunately tile based point items can only be 16x16 pixels. It should be a SPRITE of a MASSIVE chungellan sandwich that will make keen's guts explode!

Thats true i didnt think of using only sprites... ill work on it (perhaps just use the stupendous sandwich sprite XD)

Thanks for the pepperoni btw, and if you can do a breadcrumb that could work.

Pepperoni = peppers in German, but I can see now you meant to draw some kind of sausage.
