Welcome to a new type of post on our blog!
This is a new type of section, in which we ask you a question! What kind of question you ask? Well, anything from design decisions to new features. Hopefully this gets you more involved with the development of CrossCode and creates a nice discussion. This means we want to use your feedback for our final decision on the given topic.
We don’t know how often we will do this, so this will not be a regular thing. But whenever we feel the need of asking you, we’ll make a CrossQuestion out of it!
Let’s get right to it!
A new color for the shock effect
Some days ago Felix noticed that the color of the shock effect was actually a bit annoying. The problem is the contrast. We used blue and yellow to create a lightning strike kinda effect that was easily visible. But we went a bit overboard with that. When used in combat it was unpleasant on the eye, especially in the boss battle. Since players will be using every element as much as any other, we thought it was necessary to adjust the colors of the shock effects.
And this is where you come in!
We have new versions for the colors of the shock effect. And we ask you:
Which color to you like better?
To help you on your decision, here are some comparison shots:
As you can see, the left/top versions are a completely new idea to the shock effect. Purple is used quite often these days but it has a very unique look to it. The right/bottom ones are a similar to the original colors but more subtle. So what you think? Which version to you prefer or think looks good?
Let’s hear all them opinions!
EDIT: And for those who want to see the old version of the shock effect for comparison, here you go:
