Graphical Upgrades for Atlas Warriors

I've been considering ways to make Atlas Warriors look a little bit better. One approach I'm trying is to display image background behind the playing field.

I think that the effect is striking, but has the potential to be problematic.

I think that I might make them toggleable, and I think that they need further work. For instance, I think that most are a little too bright (hence why I've added the shadows to the letters). I'm interested in your thoughts on whether this is a good idea or should be abandoned. You can click on the images for a closer look.

I can be fairly certain that they'll at least be in the next release.


I've also been working on improving the state of the dialog boxes. I've added a basic messages dialog. I've improved the inventory dialog (most notably by adding a 'floor' part - the former only way of picking something up was by walking on it). Finally, I've made the skills a bit tighter. Again, these will all be in the next release.


If you're OK dealing with source code or running python scripts, you can get the updates now from Github. You'll need Python 3.3 and Pygame installed. Otherwise, they'll be another release within the week.
