Glowbat – Before and After


The Glowbat is one of the first creatures I designed for Crea. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, my pixel art skills have improved considerably over the past year, and the Glowbat was starting to look a little shabby in comparison. One major problem was that he is supposed to be an underground-dwelling creature, but his grey-brown color made him difficult to see in his environment. For a real-life animal, that’s all well and good, but for a video game, it’s visually confusing.


So here’s the new and improved Glowbat. I made him just slightly larger, added a brighter color scheme to help him pop out of the backgrounds, and made him look like he is being lit from below by his…uh…glowball.

For our beta testers who complained that the underground biome was too barren: watch out. This guy will be waiting for you, and he’s got some pretty fast attacks!

    Yeah… these things are brutal. XD They attack in groups, though I’m sure that isn’t intended. But it CAN be made intentional.
