We also actively work on creating situational backgrounds for various in-game events like Christmas or Halloween. 

Each type of 2D background has its own advantages and can be used to achieve different visual styles and gameplay effects. But it doesn’t matter, whether you are creating a shooter or an adventure platformer, your game needs to have breathtaking backgrounds because they play a pivotal role in players’s interest and engagement.

Every responsible art team should never treat game backgrounds as mere decorations that serve no purpose for the game.
They are always part of the gameplay or even level design that directly impacts the player. It is important to consider the following:

  • Background elements interact with the gameplay mechanics and influence player actions. 
  • They act as reference points or serve as indicators for hidden paths, secrets, or points of interest, encouraging players to explore the gaming world.
  • For platformer games, backgrounds also serve as backdrops for elements, allowing players to jump or climb on various objects or structures within the environment.

Incorporating the UI layout into the background design process ensures a consistent visual style and cohesive aesthetic throughout the game.

Our team try to design background elements to complement and harmonize with the UI elements, creating a seamless and immersive user experience.
