What I'd like to see updated is the building that looks as though it's made from Chiclets (a kind of gum with a shiny coating sold in the US) or bones, or pieces of chalk. It appears in one of the storylets on the non-discardable Opportunity Card that forces you to choose between pleasing the Urchins and pleasing the Widow.

The new art is mostly very nice and shiny; that's a great upgrade for sure.

It's quite surprising for me, though, that while FB have such kind of resource to invest, they do not use it to create new art for the items that have duplicate pictures. I'm talking about Mystery of the Elder Continent, Primaeval Hint, and Elemental Secret, for example. Puzzling Map is updated but still uses the same art as the Map Scrap. There are also at least 6 items that have the same "Boring Paperwork" image, including Deed for a Steamer and Lease for Bazaar premises. I wonder, why not to prioritize and differentiate those.

I'm fine with the new rubbery icon, except that it took a second glance to tell that the squid is supposed to be on top of the shoulders because there isn't enough contrast between the background and the suit.

The art is lovely but it is also humorless. Not sure it fits with the writing, to be honest. While I can see many clear improvements (i.e. the stack of books) there is nothing "delicious" in the new faces. I always found FL narratives hitting harder when they lulled you into delightful romps and then smashed you into horrible revelations. Now the horror is upfront. The old art was not perfect some many changes are welcome; for example the new art makes it much clearer we are into perpetual night. Still, the complete lack of any playfulness is daunting.

Exactly. The old art just oozed charm, fun, and humor, and was a huge part of the reason I held such affection for so many of the characters. They had so much personality and it was apparent even in the tiniest of icons. I miss the old artstyle so much.

This whole game feels like it takes itself way too seriously now.
