Speculating Screenshots (16th May 2015)

Speculating Screenshots

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. So without further ado…

Adventures of Pip (@TicTocGames)
Man, those two are so dead, and they don’t even know it. Unless that *wink wink* means something else?

V.Next (@SyncBuildRun)
Oho, cyberpunk! One of my favorite genres when it comes to adventure games for sure, although I definitely wouldn’t wanna live in what’s portrayed here, even if the game does look stylish. So old-school too…

Booze Galaxy (@talecrafter)
This proves it: beer makes not only the world, but the entire universe go round! That and pixel art; the two go hand-in-hand, after all.

Angels Fall First (@AFFDev)
The bug? All I see is a cloudy nebu– OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT THING?!

Noah’s Ark: Chicken Edition! What? That could be it, if not for the fact that the name on this particular ship is in fact… Harmony. Yeah. Harmony. More like, irony?

Not gonna lie: I’d play a lot more dungeoncrawlers, roguelikes and such, if they had cookies. Who’s with me?

Lamp Eyes (@LampInteractive)
Well alright, cookies or lamp eyes. Especially if they look like that, and allow me to see in the dark – WITHOUT side effects. None of that nonsense, ya hear?

Knee Deep (@PrologueGames)
But can he handle the truth? That is the question. Also, go for the email – never anything important in journals anymore. Not in this day and age.

I know: take it in a cool direction! Jokes aside, what exactly is in that container to the left? Hmm…

Super2dGore(?) (@sinclairstrange)
HOLY CRAP! SO MUCH BLOOD! AND MY CAPS LOCK IS STUck. Ah, there we go. Well, what better way to wrap up Speculating Screenshots than with a gorefest? What better way indeed.
