Chrysalis Steam Skin by Falxor Chrysalis Steam Skin by Falxor
Queen Chrysalis Steam Skin

This one turned out rather well, in my opinion. Despite the stare seeming creepy in the background of the chat, it actually is pretty fun. The dark colors make this skin somewhat friendly with use at night, as it should be soft on your eyes in low-light situations.

The recent steam update seems to have partially broken this skin (the chat boxes no longer have the proper background.)  Unknown if this effects the other skins you did too.  Are there any plans for updating and correcting the issue?

the skin is really good, the only thing that bugs me about it is some of the text is hard to read on the color. grey on teal is hard to see. other than that i love this skin

It's my most favorite of all. & of course, a very excellent work.

Do you have a Steam skin for, or know of a skin/a way I could improve the size of the game icons in the Detail View? Preferably, to the medium size you can see when viewing the game list in List View, just replacing the wordy game list in Detail as well.

I can't believe you used Comic Sans on this. You had one job... ONE JOB!

What's wrong with Comic Sans? It was a decent web-safe font that fit with the idea of Chrysalis.

This video should explain fairly well: www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUCcOb…

It defends the font, yes,  but it also explains the reason behind me and most everyone's hate for the font. :P

Like I said, I used it because I felt the overall appearance actually fits Chrysalis. Won't say people don't like it.

I won't object if you find a good web-safe font to use instead, though.
