My first entry into Pixonomicon's shmuptivty!
If you've not heard of it, go check it out; it's a lot of fun!

I used Arne's Famicube palette for this, which I'm not used to, so the colour use is inefficient. May have skewed the palette somewhere in the recording/optimizing.
Yes, you shouldn't ever have such a busy background that takes away from a game that requires maximum focus on the enemies and their bullets, but it looks pretty! :D

Will post a link to the playable version once it's up.

Adobe photoshop's gif making features is quite good in terms of file size, btw.

Awesome. But conceptually I don't know about the stars moving so much. They move and yet the background doesn't.

Oh, my word! I recorded it using ShareX, just playing the game with my assets loaded, but the file size was too large (I didn't even know PJ had a file size limit!), so I loaded it into some online GIF optimizer to compress it and I guess it removed all the excess colours, so yay.
This whole thing was quite the debacle though and I tried 10+ different versions before it finally worked.

*sigh* Next time I'll just manually make a gif...

I see only 42 colors which is fine. How exactly did you record this?
