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.

Cool lookin’, sure. Shame about the whole ‘everyone hates water levels’ thing though.

They definitely don’t make ’em like this anymore, and that’s a darn shame if you ask me!

Good question. Wonder if MacGyvering it would work…

What? No! My way or the highway. Or, well, whatever goes for a ‘highway’ in that world.

If only a Halloween outfit made by me would look that good. Or stylishly pixellated. Just saying.
