Speculating Screenshots (24th January 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…

Kicking off this past Saturday’s screeny Twitter crazy is… well, a WIP (as indicated in the tweet itself). As such, I honestly haven’t a clue as to what it’s all about, but I’d like to think it’s some kind of physics-based high-scoring game. Maybe?

Odd Bot Out (@MartinMagni)
Next Saturday, eh? Also, holy wire mess, Batman. Is that blue ‘bot’ about to be dropped into a pit, or perhaps something more sinister, in this upcoming puzzler? Guess we’ll find out sooner rather than later!

A Wizard’s Lizard (@LostDecadeGames)
Challenge mode, eh? I’d say the game is challenging enough as is, but there are those who strive to always better themselves in certain games. With this addition, who knows – maybe A Wizard’s Lizard will become one such?

Portalnauts! (@gamesplusjames)
Got that right! That said, what the heck is that fella riding? Or is he actually moving around using… rocket boots? Nah, couldn’t be. Could it? Also, those penguins. Creepy eyes.

Am I seeing things, or is that signpost actually talking to the player? And what’s that about lost tech? Ah, so many questions in this week’s Screenshot Speculations, and so very few answers…
