I spent the last couple days making this because some friends of mine have been playing Hedgwars, on the Discord server for the indie game Fech the Ferret. I thought it would be fun to make a theme just for our server, and it wound up looking really good. I tried to consistently give solid objects and outline, since there are non-solid grass and flower objects.

Download the theme here:

Screenshots!

Here's us playing on it (since this was taken I updated with a high rez skybox and added the temple gate object).

A link to the game that inspired me, for those wondering:

Specifically, I referenced this promo art as well as some screenshots of the game:

The tree looks kinda nice but i think everything else needs work.
The land texture is very important and here is rather disappointing.
Nice to see players working on themes tho, I'm also drawing one right now.

Interesting. Did you all draw it yourself?

I agree, the land texture is too simplistic for my taste, too.

Hey so I know it's been a while but I am interested in working on this theme a bit more.

I have an idea how I'd like to improve some of the scenery objects already.

I wasn't sure what to do with the land texture because there wasn't a lot to work with from the source material (I had mimicked the checkered pattern from the cliffs/walls in the Fech demo). Looking at it again I could tweak the color palette to be less similar to the background. I could also make the land texture more earthy/detailed instead of checkers.
