The Binding of Isaac Rebirth

Paradise Lost: First Contact Kickstarter - Color enhancement, particles and shaky cams

Level color grading

Since the beginning we wanted to design the different elements that shape the game (scenarios, objects, lighting effects, characters) without color restrictions, avoiding the 8/16-bit retro palettes characteristic of the pixel-art aesthetic.

Full update here (thanks Matt!)

River City Ransom SP - info on event characters, police and mystery beings

- event characters are special characters with a ! above their head
- talking to them will trigger events (including battles)
- sometimes they will give you important information
- if you beat up innocent people, the police will be called on you
- you can escape by moving to a different area
- the police are quite strong and should easily be able to take you out
- encounter some mysterious beings (such as a pink bunny or a penguin)
- try to defeat them for mystery items, but they're much faster than a normal human
