    the color scheme is good, what I was talking about was that the shading and highlights are the same hue with only the brightness changed.
    try shifting darker colors into a colder blue hue and bright colors into hotter yellow/ red and see if you like it or not :3

    EDIT:
    heres an example

    Glad you like the background! It was probably the most time consuming to draw.

    Quick little update here, just got the attack animations where I want them. Basically what
    you see in the gif is the attack animation while moving forward. There's a separate one for
    standing still as well.

    Another little side addition is there's an actual "Inventory" for gold now, each type of currency "aka gems and gold coins" has they're own
    value that adds to your bag, making it bigger and smaller depending on how much you have
    or don't.

    Anyways, that's it for now, hope to have more to show soon, cheers!

    Hey guys, so I've been working on adding a dialogue system into the game, for interacting
    with characters, examining stuff ect. Its done other then having the avatars pop up next to the
    text, which I'll add hopefully in the near future. Anyways, that's all for now, hope to have more to show soon, cheers! :)

    Nice! Though you might want to change the game's title. "The Knight" seems a bit plain.

    Hahah
    hahaha! Agreed, I've never been good with titles. Although I have changed it to "The Knights Tale" I'm not sure if that's any better though.

    Actually I had thought about a secondary character for the game. The wizards cat actually. Not sure if I'll go that rout yet though. We'll see.

    Don't put yourself down man! It takes a bit of practice to make a game look fancy, but more then anything it takes time and patience. Lots and LOTS of tweaking and redoing involved as well. :eek:

    Thanks - I kinda get bored doing pixel art though and I seem to be forever re-doing my sprites and it makes me feel like my game is going nowhere. I try and focus on the coding because of that lol

    Hey guys, I'm sorry to say I'm putting the knight on hold. I was new to programming and game development, and the projects length and scope took its toll after a while. Mainly in the programming department. Now, this dosnt mean I'm quiting development entirely, it'll be slowed down a lot, and nothing new will come out regarding the game for a while.

    Although this project is put off, I've learned a ton about game maker and game development in general and am using that to create a new game that is far smaller in scope, but able to get finished.

    Anyways take care guys, see ya soon.

    Cheers.

    It has a little bit of Amiga's Moonstone vibe and I like it a lot!

    It's always fun checking on your updates. You've got some fun looking footage. I see its set in the mountains, and the green grass on grey rock bothers me. :)
