Just a quick animated haunted shrine, with parallax backround in a retro video game style.

The color limit was a little difficult to work with, took me roughly five or six hours but I'm pretty proud of the result.

edit : changed the orientation of the clouds, so it can look less weird and added some borders

Oooh, this actually gave me a chill down my spine. Spook-level achieved! The variety of textures is captivating!

This looks great!  I do agree with derSteiner about the speed of the animation. Right now the clouds are drawing the viewers eye away from the Torii, which is the best part of this piece in my opinion.  I think if you slow it down a tad, it'd make the piece 10x better.

Looks good, I like texture of the ground, the shrine however is a little bit messy for me. Aren't clouds going too fast?

It's really nice. Feels retro, in a good way. The top beam is impressive, love the complex pattern and am blown away by the texture it creates. Great work.

As for the ground, I like the symetry.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much for your comments eishiya and JustinGameDesign, I really appreciate it !

"this is really cool and feels like something you'd find in an old game. A creepy old game, the kind you see creepypasta about."

That's exactly what I've been looking for ! thanks for the remark ! maybe one day I'll muster enough courage to make one :D

I wouldn't worry about a mirror background if it's meant to look like a retro game. That was a common practice.

Even though you added some changes, the ground still looks mirrored because the overall brick positions and locations of features are exactly mirrored.

Aside fro that, this is really cool and feels like something you'd find in an old game. A creepy old game, the kind you see creepypasta about.
