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…
FIRE! FIRE! Sexy lighting? Couldn’t agree more. Also, FIRE!
Hmm… colorful, albeit a tad gloomy. Metroidvania? Well, that changes everything. I approve!
Show of hands, who loves some hexagonic TBS? I certainly do, and the cartoon-y visuals only make it better.
Creepy old man with a stick is creepy.
In the middle of the night… I go walking in my sleep…
Steamville, eh? Bet ya it’ll be a… steampunk game. Yup. Just you watch.
Eek. Uncanny, yet somehow quite intriguing. So, that bottle?
From uncanny to downright disturbing. What on Earth happened?
Ah, roguelikes. One of my favorite genres! That said… will the wall strike back?
