Clouds
« on: June 25, 2009, 18:39:45 »
This is actually an idea I had for my latest work-in-progress game. I imagined that it would be cool in a top-down shooter to have fuzzy-flowing-and-swirling clouds in the distant background. Something like Cloud City in Star Wars :) To be honest, I was somewhat inspired by some cloud effects in Braid. Anyway, try it, instructions are within the program. Just a clarification: "Mirroring ON" slowly fades in and out a horizontally&vertically flipped version of the static background, giving a more "changing" appearence to the effect, but sometimes making things quite more blurry. "Mirroring OFF" leaves the static background as is.

Woah! That's really neat. The first background looks more cloudy in my opinion, but that's probably just because it blends together more. Great job.
Lurk more.
