Crazy Credits

In each of the main credits' screen, a letter G, O, C or N is styled with the bright half-circle of the eclipse, which defines the color of the fonts: Letters to the left of that one are "lit up" in yellow, less bright the farther they are; the other letters are red. The remaining credits also have an unusual lighting, scrolling over a bright circle so that some letters are suddenly clearer. See more »
