Sorry for the delay, but here it is! Leave a vote for your favorite and some feedback!

Our Hero finds himself sneaking into a manor, to break into it's vault and uncover it's ill gotten treasures.


Some more Pure Remembrance stuff, this time featuring an autumnal mountainside.

A stereotypical GB screen

This week's screenshots are kinda hard to choose from. Thankfully I have abstained for voting, But if I did vote it would probably be a tie between Geoffrey and Haritiro. Joemacool's screenshot doesn't click with me for some reason. If his goal was to make a boring generic tileset screenshot like his caption says then he has succeeded and it's lacking something to me.

That's precisely the reason of this shot.

Really nice atmosphere here of a magical and scary manor of sorts. I'm especially a fan of that locked door, I don't think I've seen that before. I do think the brown colours blend too much and the screen would benefit having a bit more contrast between those colours, but that's just an idea. No guarantees ;-)


First off, great floor detailing! It's a pleasant screen that's inviting you to adventure. The foggy details on the right are nice too. All in all a very decent screen.


Very pleasing palette, great screen design, proper detailing. I think you nailed the autumn vibe here!


Simple, yet a fair screen. I think you did a really good job on the mountain formation in the upper left. The detailing is also pretty sweet.



I voted for Haritiro, for it was the screen that stood out most to me. It was not easy though, since the other 3 screens are good contenders.

In all seriousness, I would've voted for FS if I hadn't been in the running; but they're all really good this week.

Geoffrey smacked me right in the balls with late 2000s PZC nostalgia. It was a much simpler time. Voted.

All very good, but I liked Haritiro's elegant design and use of pure remembrance the best!


Also I see that owl. Or does it see me?

Voted for Haritiro because it stood out as something fresh, and generally has good composition.


That said, I don't like the way you've used the purple rock and brown dirt in the walkable areas because it doesn't follow the actual play area. The central dirt streak pulls focus from the top of the screen straight down to that small group of bushes - this conveys to the player that that's where they should walk... but it leads to nothing. Instead, the play area sweeps out to the west, but this isn't immediately apparent because the consistent wall/floor colours paint a "barrier" between the middle and left of the screen.


To remedy this, I would "paint" the dirt sweeping down from the north and out to the west, to convey to the player that that's the intended direction of travel. I would also stretch the dirt on the left out a bit to meet the dirt from the north (they don't need to completely connect, but a connection should be implied). Using a different shade of purple for the rock floor would also help distinguish it from the "barrier" of the walls and make it clearer that it can be walked upon.

I aim to please--in that very manner.

Made some changes based on Noel's feedback.



Also, I voted for Joel, but the others are nice too.
