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.

Slide box, push box, rinse, repeat. Or maybe… “BREAK BOX! SMASH BOX!”? Yeah, much better!

That’s the second-largest pharaoh head I’ve ever seen…
“Who ya gonna call?!” (obvious joke is obvious, I know).

Not entirely certain as to what’s going on, but I like it! A lot, in fact.

Surely hell looks much more inhospitable than that? Surely.

Guess no one told him not to bring a sword to a magic duel. Oh boy.
Wrapping up this week’s Speculating Screenshots up by breaking the rules with something awesome that is not even remotely indie.
