is it possible

  • Is there a way to make a game look ouside at night with effects, I'm meaning night time lighting.

  • can you explain what you mean, Such as is it geography location you want real time nights. or do you want a look outside of window to be like night time.

    I guess I have both in mind, I'm trying to make a game in woods at night

    I have multiply and darken effects added to some early graphics it looks ok but could be better.

  • From an artists's point of view, you really should create a second set of assets for night time for a natural look. Objects change the way they look in different ways when lit by different sources of light. There isn't really a quick filter you can use to simulate this in a sprite based engine.

    Even with a 3d engine it is simpler, but it can take a lot of work to customize lighting for a proper night scene. This is why a lot of games opt out of having day/night cycles, sometimes it isn't worth the time investment.
