    I just made a post where I introduce the game.

    That doesn't mean that there is no danger. Titan is rather unforgiving, so are the people you initially work for, and there is sort of a cold war going on with another faction. If you decide that violence is the best option, you can go for it, but it is not the game's primary mechanic.

    How so? The font might not render properly everywhere, is it the font?

    Brownish-red hue of the background does not properly complement the viciously yellow font - in general, it's better to abstain from yellow fonts, it's a rule of thumb
    The font itself is too big and too angular, it's also a non-serif, which may be troublesome to read when it comes to larger bodies of text
    I wouldn't put the main body so far to the left on a seamless background either, also banner buttons seem too close to the logo
    On my screen resolution the site's kinda empty and placeholder-y

    I'd advise you to consider a more simplistic design, such as the Joomla template Styg uses for his Underrail homepage
    It's arguably too simple so adding a fancy banner with a futuristic font would be a nice touch, but please abstain from it in the main body if possible

    OK, thanks, some good points. Changed the body font (still non-serif) and centered the content. I'll look into it more later as it's looking kind of bland right now, but I hope legibility has improved a bit.

    The color scheme is part of the '70s aesthetics of the game and due to the nature of Titan there is very little blue. If more people think it's hard to read I'll change the colors. There is some green in my palette.

    BTW I'm a bit if a color nerd and I wrote my own atmospheric scattering model for rendering colors on the surface of Titan for this game.

  11. The in-game font is a bit hard to read...

    Yeah I love it, but it might be the same deal as with the font on the website. If enough people think it's hard to read, I'll change it or include a menu option to change it. Most of the interface would scale with the font so hopefully that won't be too much of a hassle for me down the line.
