For most, weekends means two days off work with some much-needed R&R. But for game developers, it’s also a time during which they get to show off what they’ve been working on. I am of course referring to Screenshot Saturday, which involves tweeting screenshots with the #ScreenshotSaturday hashtag. Screenshots which I will be critiquing some of every single Tuesday, in Speculating Screenshots.
Different screenshots from different developers, all working on different games. Some are very much a WIP, while other are from titles rapidly approaching release. These tweets do all have one thing they in common though, which is that they feature actual screenshots (or at the very least, mockups), animated or stills.
Strange location to pick for the signing of a peace treaty…

I pity that bicycle. I really do. Looks groovy though.
I thought, for just a second, that turning your enemies monochrome was actually a spell. Well, darn.

Agreed, but exactly what are we looking at?
Something something warp speed.
And a second round of sharks (or just one, I suppose), because… Jaws.
