    Note...if you make 2 or three of these...with the circle that is transparent slightly larger and smaller...make it an animation...makes a good flicker...then add a noise image layered on top...and you have a very nice and eerie look and feel.

    Sounds great but can it be done in a specific level ? when putting it in the character animation it makes it appear through out the game. I would like the user to get random levels where they are in a black tunnel like that. possible ?

    What about making it the animation of an action picked up when the character spawns in the start screen that lasts until death

    interesting idea - so basically this whole thing that was described here - all this can get into an action ?

    Why not? It would be with the option "overlay". Even though I think there is a bug that makes this option right now not working as it should. You can make with action a lot of things. For example put a 80% opaque dark 4x4 pixel image, make it huge in Buildbox and use it as overlay action so your character can literally turn off the light when touching it. Baaaaaam. It's dark now around the character. :D

    I'm surprised you are the same eyal who made the game Kika. After I saw the trailer of your game I thought you were the action king in our community. lol Didn't you make the stick-thing with an action?

    Thank you for the compliment but no, it's not with an action at all. Once the game will be out I will be able to tell how we made it - sorry for not sharing at the moment

    Hey Friends ! After banging my head for a while , i've finally made it and it works like a charm, and you can edit it the way you want.
    The Way which I used is kinda simple, you dont need to add a large jpeg, instead you can allign your layers like I did in this vid. Hope it helped :) youtube link :-
