{Unpopular opinion} Why rebirth looks bad (Please read before commenting)
Looks don't make a game, but this does look quite bad.

My problem is not the style...it is how it is being portrayed.
Real pixel art takes more effort and can actually look really nice.

The problem with rebirth is that there are far too many pixels in some areas, and far too little in others.

With that being said, rebirth looks like a low-rez version of the origanel game...rather than looking like its own unique style.

The dev actually said it is because he wanted to make the game look retro. Which as I said...he failed to portray.

Furthermore...the fps relies on the new engine, not the new style.
He could have easily kept the old style and even made the new style properly and the fps still would've been the same.

McMillen despised the old style iirc, so he wanted to change it as soon as he was given a chance.

I am aware of that.

As it says on my post, if your going to do pixel art, then do it right.
There is too many pixels around the edges, and too little pixels and contrast in the inner design.

Trust me on this: the new style had the potential to look great. But they screwed it over. I would rather have the old style than this one.

A bit difficult to judge a games art style before its even out... Also pixel art has a variety of styles, saying its not "real pixel art" is just some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ personal qualifier

At first i was like "Wha.. the hell? Why is it so ..."
But now, after i saw a bit of gameplay and listened to new music, i think this artstyle is very fitting. Darker, scarier, more disturbing.

You can't judge a game before it is out. But you can easily judge its style.

While it is only opinion, the pixel art featured in the game is not all that great. There isn't enough heart or effort put into the shaders.

I like the lighting.

I like the music.

But I hate the style.

I like pixel art too. But this is not how you do it in my eyes.

Frankly, I'm not a fan of pixel art and I really liked the style in TBOI because of how clear it was.
Rebirth graphics just look messed up, low quality pixel art.
Some of it doesn't look like done by a professional.
But there's no helping it, and I'm sure all the other aspects of the game will be better than in the original.
I would just like to mention that the game is not finalized yet, so what you see in any videos by edmund could be temporary art untill its made all nice and such.
I was objected at first but it grew on me

Edmund already stated he was keeping the style.

Let's hope he can improve it.

So far, the only thing about the stylei like so far is the secret rooms.
