EBF5: Backgrounds 4

Here’s another bunch of backgrounds!

My trip to London and the Rezzed expo was cool.
I collected a lot of stickers and met a bunch of people, and saw some neat games – but will probably never play most of them due to my already huge wish list. The venue the event was hosted at was an old dock (it was pretty cool) and the event was largely focused on indie games. I’ll likely go again next year.

I ranted a lot about what happened to Flash, and a lot of other developers are in similar situations to mine: they started off making Flash games for fun but have since moved onto other types of work using newer tech, mostly Unity. (I’ll probably head that way after EBF5 too…)

I also visited the Imperial War Museum and the Tate Modern, with the former being a really cool historical collection of vehicles, weapons, and propaganda, and the latter being a lot of space wasted on crap modern art.

    i know you already finished a lot of backgrounds, but i thought it would be cool if you included hidden cats in some of them, and if you click on all of them you would get an achevment

      I’m fairly sure that Unity is a cross-platform game engine that can be used even for 2D. Maybe we can theoretically dream a cross-platform EBF6: who knows? :>

        Nooo, don’t move to Unity. It’s terrible. There’s Godot Engine, which from my experience, is much better than Unity, because it’s light-weight and easier to use and provides same (or even better) 2D capabilities. It’s cross-platform too. I’d recommend trying that if Flash replacement is ever concerned.

          I don’t think is that terrible, but I can agree that its main purpose is not 2D: I’ve heard of Godot and it sounds promising. Still, there’s a plethora of game engines out there: if it’s needed, finding a replacement of Flash (as a 2D game development toolset) wouldn’t be excessively difficult. I admit I’m a bit curious to see what technology will be picked if a migration will be necessary.

    Your best batch so far! But for people who don’t have Unity (like me), does that mean the EBF series ends there?

        Flash isn’t the only option for browser-based games. Actually, most popular game engines provide HTML5 export, which makes it easier to bring the game to all systems than Flash.

      It likely will be similar to EBF4: It will have a free version but you can buy the Premium version to get extra dungeons and loot.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I think the background in those background images looks a bit too blurry. Don’t get me wrong, I like them and I appreciate them being somewhat multi-layered, but the rather strong blur makes some parts seem a bit out of place. Maybe tone down the blur a bit.

    Can you make a set with the characters and enemies on it to get a feel of what we will be seeing throughout the entire game? The battle demo only gives a black background.

    Somehow the first picture reminded me of Golden Sun.
    Since I was a kid I’ve been playing EBF, EBF 2, EBF 3, EBF 4, and I also play bullet heaven and adventure story.
    I can’t wait for EBF 5!!!
