That's a good point. I decided to lower the alpha of the shadows from .35 to .25. They still look nice, even though they are "brighter".

Btw: I added a screenshot of my menu a while ago (sorry for the german text, I forgot to switch to the english). What do you think about the menu buttons? The color is currently just white and red if the mouse is above. Is that enough or should I add a button behind the text? Maybe a brown button or something.

I think you should add buttons, yes. The text is hard to read.

I also think pure white and red are "off-theme", they don't really fit the look of the rest of the menu and the game. Red draws a lot of attention to itself, and I don't think you need that much attention-grabbing in this case, since the player will already be looking at the text/button by the time it turns red. It just needs to be clearly distinct from the white and from the background, but you don't need to go as far as red to achieve that.

Thank you for the feedback. I added simple GUI buttons to the game. Looks like this:

I was not able to update the header image. Maybe, I am able to do it this week. As you can see, I'll have to reduce the height of the header image.

Additionally, I released a Pre-alpha version of the game this week. Get the version here: http://www.indiedb.com/games/forest-strike/downloads/forest-strike-pre-alpha-001

There is a Discord server for feedback and more frequent updates as well: https://discord.gg/JjVnztT
I would really appreciate it, if you join.
