Hi guys, so I'm making a game that has turn based (classic FF style) battles, with the player's party on the left and enemies on the right.
I did this without much thought, but then an artist friend of mine said I needed to switch it around (party on the right and enemies on the left), saying it would feel 'wrong' otherwise.
He claims that in classic religion and mythology the left is associated with evil, as shown in classical art and so on. I suggested it might be because in Asian countries they generally read from right-to-left.
Either way, do you have any thoughts about whether this is important or not? And why? Thank you!
P.S my blog has some early screenshots-
