I'm pretty new to Unity, and I'm wondering how you would set up a background to an orthographic 2D game (like in a game like 'Braid'). I have the .png image and I'm not really quite sure what the most effective way to do this would be. I've tried to do it before by just putting the image onto a plane, but the image showed up as pixelated/distorted. Could somebody suggest anything?
P.S. Are there any ways to achieve parallaxing in orthographic 2D?
I'd jsut put it on a plane lie you did. If your image is distorted, you have to use the correct aspect ratio on the plane (or fix the UVs), if it is pixelated, it is too small (or too low in quality).
For parallax scrolling, all you'd need is a script that moves the plane by a certain amount of the player's (or foreground's) position.
