So, it's kind of hard to know what you're getting from the sample art.

A lot of Murakumo's work is similar where the detail is somewhat inconsistent. Although most of the work is complete, small parts of it look unfinished, or maybe a little smudged. It's hard to explain, but you'll notice if you look at the furniture or the airplane propeller.

It's good art. The city scene is a little disorienting, but it's still pretty cool. The airship is marvelous, but you should know that there are characters painted into the cockpit.

Other than a few jagged edges here and there, it would serve most indie game makers well.

It's a decent set if you need something for a science lab. It has a creepy underground feeling to it because it is all in unnatural light. The detail is actually pretty good. There's a ton of stuff in the scenes, and I don't really know what a lot of it is because I'm not that much of a science person. The style is consistent among Murakumo's other work. It's painterly, yet similar enough to other typical backgrounds that you could probably mix and match without people noticing.

I bought the hospital set, so I also decided to grab this as well for a few filler scenes that I have.

Overall, I like them a little bit more than the hospital series, just because they seem a little bit cleaner, and with better line quality. However, some parts of the backgrounds, such as the curtains in the bedroom stand, stand out to me as slightly unfinished.

Also, you can probably tell from the pictures that the lighting is a little too bright in some backgrounds. Also, the saturation may be a little too high in a few of the scenes.

However, they are still very nice, but have a few rough spots, so I just gave it a 4 out of 5.

Also, I should mention that the scenes are somewhat more painterly compared to some of the other backgrounds that I've downloaded, so the style remains consistent across products.

This set has 6 unique renders. I also bought the other hospital set to make a more complete hospital scene. Most of the renders have morning, day, and night renders. However, the food tray render only has one (probably morning). There are also renders of the roof, break room, stairwell going up, waiting area, and a stairwell (downward perspective).

The style and quality vary slightly throughout, but most people probably wouldn't really notice.

I bought this package for a game that I'm working on about a woman who has a daughter with selective mutism.

It has 7 unique backgrounds with morning, day, and night renders.

1) looking down hospital stairs
2) hospital break/park/outside area
3) from hospital bed looking out window
4) from hospital bed looking at the entry door
5) looking down a hallway
6) from hospital bed looking at ceiling
7) view of different hospital beds from entrance

The quality varies between backgrounds. They almost look like a combination of 3D, photo manipulation, and 2D painting, and filters.

The lighting is a little off in some scenes, and some of the paint strokes are very painterly, leaving some scenes looking somewhat unfinished in some parts, but it's really more of the style I think.

Anyway, for the price it's still a deal.

I'm using these sprites for a game that I'm making and they aren't too busty or sexy, so they are really good for me since I need some art that will appeal to a younger audience.

I did have some problems opening the file because of the size of the image and all of the layers, but I used gimp to help me sort that out.

I was surprised at how many items there were. There are over 200 layers in all with different colors for different outfits.

There are also quite a number of accessories available.

The musical effects are great! They are more like transitions that you could use between chapters or for intermissions, etc.

The BGM music is for the most part "merry" or "happy go lucky", but there are a few "humor", "horror", and "sad" tracks as well, so you can create a project with varied emotion.

There are also some bonus sound effects. Most of these are school bells or door bells, I think.

This is by chance exactly what I needed for a visual novel that I'm working on.

I think that I counted 17 completely unique renders. I would suggest downloading the trial to make sure that it will work for your project.

The only drag is that the documentation and charts are all written in Japanese, though they seem completely unnecessary.

The addition of snow in the outdoor scenes is a nice touch. You can also look out the balcony onto the city, but if you look out the front door, you'll just see the background blend into a dense fog, snow, or rain.

KyuKyuKyunoQnoQ does it again!

These backgrounds look a little older and slightly flatter than their others, but they are still great for your visual novel game.

The set includes a bedroom with vanity, a bedroom showing a desk / homework area, a Japanese sitting room, a chain convenient store, a mom and pop convenient store, a kitchen, and a tea shop or restaurant or something.

All of the scenes come with day and night renders.

I downloaded this set of backgrounds because I really needed a pool for my summer scene.

There are nine different backgrounds, but really there are only about 7 unique ones because the 2 pool and 2 telephone backgrounds are very similar to each other.

There are a bathroom, classroom, station, two pools, two telephone poles, a school or office building, and an "ivory tower" which just looks like a school.

I was a little disappointed because the texture qualities varied, and I bought the set for the pool, but the pool looked like it came straight out of a 3D modeling program.

The station, office building, and classroom are really nice though, so it's still worth it for under $20.00.
