Speculating Screenshots (2nd January 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.

Lights on, lights off?

Boulderdash. Slice, dice – rinse, repeat. Job’s done! (Seriously though, he’s so dead.)

Spooky. I wonder… will ‘pick up headstone’ do anything? I wonder.

…and yet he / she / it only carries ONE sword?!

Bet ya the liontamer did it. Just you wait.

Wait, what?!

Wow. Police Quest flashback! Also, that beer belly.

With the whole ‘mind control’ thing, not sure how much that’s gonna help, really?

That clown. That… clown. THAT CLOWN!

Bet ya it won’t be able to pick up the odd accent (mine included).

Wow. That– WHAT IS THIS?!

Twists… and turns? Roguelikes could do with more… turns. Yeah. Turns.
