Some backgrounds include day, night, afternoon, and dusk renders. The internal hallway for the apartments just has one render.

The outside render of the entire apartment building has renders with and without caution tape.

There are 10 unique backgrounds including the apartment building from outside, the apartment building hallway, a dining room with sitting area, a gender-neutral bedroom, a living room with TV, a bedroom with desk, an apartment hallway (inside the apartment), an entryway, a girl's bedroom, and a woman's bedroom.

The overall quality is good.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

The XBox 360 Indie Game Marketplace was a very strange place indeed, a place where you could find both hidden gems and utter trainwrecks. Or in the case of Mukago's Undead Syndrome, curiosities that demonstrate little flashes of brilliance within their technical limitations.

Undead Syndrome is a bizarre, surreal trip, and you'll get the feeling this wasn't necessarily by design. The grating sound effects and plastic character models suggest a game that was never properly finished, and yet somehow it works; somehow you find yourself thinking "yep, this is fine, this makes sense".

For all it's noise and weirdness, I kind of love it, and if you're okay with titles like Deadly Premonition, you might find something to like here, too.

Virus Crashers is A nicely well-done game to play casually on your own or with a friend.The main Premise of the game is to shoot some bugs(Virus) and popping them. This game features a nostalgic NES style that fits with the game play. Similar to bubble bobble that was originally on the NES. I found myself playing this game from time to time With a buddy. Pretty easy to pick up and play, Though I myself cant get all the way through 99 stages.

I usually don't like ASMRs because when I use them to sleep they are too loud to the point where the character voice is too low but the background sounds hurt. This one is perfect, especially the mimigaki track. Boy am I picky with my mimigaki. Most of what I have listened to in other mimigaki ASMRs are scratching wood on wood sounds which hurts my ears. This one's pretty soothing and the voice is very enjoyable. Not to mention it's only $3. That's a steal for near 3 hours of content. This is a good one to pick up. Heck, I suggest getting all the items under this group. All their stuff is pretty neat and affordable so supporting them means more stuff in the future!

This package has 8 unique backgrounds. It contains a suburban crosswalk, a bakery store front (outside), a river running through the city, a fruit stand, a park / playground, a hospital with parking lot, a coffee shop / bakery (interior), and a shopping street with a hill in the background.

The files are delivered as .bmps and have day, night, raining, and dusk renders.

The overall quality is good. Some outside shots may look a little overexposed, but this could be adjusted with basic editing.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

An underwater exploration, action, and horror game, more preoccupied by its atmosphere.

The labyrinthine caves, despite having some intended order, as you need to find items to delve further into the depths, are very open and heavily encourage exploration. Furthermore, the level design is pretty nontraditional, which isn't a problem; the solutions of the many puzzles are very elaborate and clever, enemies actually pose quite a threat on numerous occasions, and as oxygen is a constant issue, the air pockets and save points are laid out so that you're often on your last breath. The game's pronounced difficulty and lack of support make every discoveries feel rewarding.

But perhaps its best asset is its atmosphere. Whether you're swimming in the gloomy depths or being chased by the Demon Snake, the game is oozing with a strong sense of tension, which is rarely done so well, making it more of a timeless gem.

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and I'll be looking forward replaying it sometime in the future. The whole game can be played for free through the trial, but the Mini illustration set is a nice addition, and serves as another incentive to support the creator.

This product was originally released on Sep/24/2013, but was updated on Aug/19/2015. At first, I thought it was one character with three poses, but they are separate characters and each have their own .psd file. The clothing can be removed and each have their own accessories. The files are designed for Photoshop, so if you use a different editing program, some effects may not come through. For example, clothing patterns may extend outside of their bounding boxes when not using Photoshop, but you can still edit it. This is a good accompaniment to other products within the same circle.

This product contains four separate .psd files. There are one male character, two female characters, and a sword file. The female which shows the full profile has several outfits, but the other female has one dress that can be customized a little bit. The male character has one outfit, but items can be removed. You can adjust the hues to get different colors.

All characters have a few different hair styles, mouths, and eyebrows to choose from and this allows you to change the expressions. Only the female with full profile has a complete nude option, but the other female can remove all clothing.

If you don't have Photoshop on your computer, you can open the files, but some plug-ins might not work. For example, I noticed that the bounding box doesn't work on the man's shorts, so additional minor editing could be necessary depending on your editing program.

It's a nice change of style from other character art.

Gorgeous and underrated. Extremely worth it. Please make more fantasy sets! I would buy them in a heartbeat!!

There's an ample amount of backgrounds with customizations. The color theme is A++ and delicious. I would've loved to see the village without NPC Characters on it but it's OK.

There's an Oregon Trail kind of background, an Athenian bathhouse, Pretty castles and hallways Jail cells, a battlefield with dead people, etc. The only thing it lacks are shops and it's a bit of a problem if you have those. I really hope the author decides to do more!

This set contains 23 background art with their variations for a whooping total of 83 hq picture with a 4/3 and a 16/9 ratio.
From classy bedrooms to lavish ballroom, a mysterious library, a somptuous salon, never ending hallways or a long forgotten cellar, you'll find everything you need for your visual novel. Quality is, as usual, present and Minikle pays a lot of attention to details for his best set yet.
