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.

Chaos, destruction, mayhem. My favorite blend!

Enemies are slain with a single spell; boxes are smashed… slowly,
through brute force?!

But… where’s the water? THE WATER!

MORE chaos, destruction and mayhem, confined to an arena of death and slaughter? Oh my!

Great movie. Annoying bug, but great movie still.
