Speculating Screenshots (20th February 2016)

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.

Shopping UI, eh? Wait, will players be able to buy that piece of sample dialog? I mean… why not, right?

Oversized beard, coming through! Also, baby blue elephant.

So a ‘trip bar’ is kinda like a fast food joint? Well alrighty then.

Holy crap, that is one scary looking… thing. Hmm… cat? Dog? Surely it ain’t a dog, it’s a monster!

From terrifying to extremely stylish. Whoever the artist behind this one is, he / she deserves a raise.

Hey look, it’s Skull Mountain!

About eight months early for All Hallows’ Eve, but who cares – pixellated witches are awesome year-round!

Cryptic screenshots are easily among the best, ya know?

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay…

Just when you thought I couldn’t (wouldn’t?) dig up another unsettling picture for this week’s Speculating Screenshots.
