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.

A bomb from a dwarf, in a video game? Who’d NOT want that?!

Is that controller an ‘on-screen controls’ thing, or just for reference? Huh? TELL ME!

Strangest boss fight I’ve seen in a while, and yet, something about it…

Very nice. What? I’m aware that Valentine’s Day is long over. If only it’d taken place on a Tuesday. If only.

There’s a unique premise, if a bit odd. Strolling to life save?

Those vehicles better be armed (and as a result, dangerous). They better be.

Even in its current (ie. unfinished) state, I’d wager it’s still better than recent Tony Hawk games. Just saying.
