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…

Talk about a dizzying screenshot, eh? Also, where’s the vehicle one is supposed to take through all them rings? Or maybe there is none. Maybe… it’s an invisicar? Well, that’s Speculating Screenshots for ya!

Wow. Lootfest 2015, right there! Swords, armor pieces, staves, wands and more, in every color imaginable! Get ’em while they’re hot and stacked, because… loot stacking?

Yay, pinball! A genre that’ll truly make ya… flip out (heehee). What’s with that Spader Invader-esque figure though? An obstacle, a boss, or just something to smash to pieces?

Couldn’t have picked a worse place to wait for… wait, I take it back. That’s actually a pretty nice looking mansion(?), even if the darn thing has an undeniably uncanny overall feel. I mean, that fog. That… fog!

Hello old-school pointy and clicky with a twist of post-apocalyptic madness. Lovely, ain’t it? Wouldn’t trust that fishing advice though. River could be full of mutated fish and other nasties, all things considered. Just saying.
