The Concrete Jungle Weekly Chronicle – March 21st
This week I’ve been working on the list of changes I put together after Rezzed. I’m really pleased with the changes so far.

I’ve revamped a lot of the UI. Most noticeably the background colour (which will be changeable by the player), and the counter bars. There’s been a font switch-around too- I’m using the squarer font (‘Aldo The Apache’) for some of the UI text, which is the same as I used for the re-rendering of the game’s logo from last week.
There’s a load of other tweaks which are too numerous to list,and I’m only half way through my list!
