Thanks. I haven't played that game, these backgrounds do look like something worth investigating though.

When it comes to picking software, it depends on what you're aiming for. For the characters I used GMS' image editor, a program that doesn't surpass MS Paint that much, but the sprites' outlines are softened in the game.
