Does looking at the keyboard while I type count as protecting my eyes from prolonged exposure to the screen?

Different textures for different colours maybe? Brick, marble, wood... stuff like that.

In Topic: Do My Swordsmen Look Like Cyborgs?

I immediately see the blue shoulders (is the right word, pauldron?) and then the green selection indicator. I can barely see the swords at all against the green grass. Without any context as to what I'm supposed to be seeing, yes, I'd probably think they're robots or some kind of machine. (Though I suppose a knight in full plate looks somewhat mechanical when you think about it.)

Maybe try making the swords brighter and see what happens. And if possible, add in some other items to fill out the setting with more of a mid-age appearance. Also, the selection cursor and health bars strike me as being more for a sci-fi genre game. Maybe try a circular or oval selection indicator at the feet of the knights and a full rectangle health bar with no breaks in it.

It's like asking a random composer or musician person you know as to what they think about the latest pop song that is sweeping the nation.


Except it's not really random in this case. These people already know who you are and what you do. It seems to me it suggests that these people respect your position and are interested to hear your input. What's wrong with that? Yes, people might just be trying to justify their guilty pleasures or distaste for something through you but at the very least you could then ask them for their opinions and consider it an opportunity for market research.

No clue how I'll do or if I'll even be able to finish anything but there's only one way to find out.
I'm in.
