Speculating Screenshots, XL Edition (8th August 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.

I think someone’s in trouble, because… that skeleton looks evil!

 

An old bridge is making everyone look this happy? Love the art style, but… an old bridge?

 

Looks like someone forgot to purchase proper quality reactor shielding…

 

But mushrooms are delicious! And in some games, they give you an insane growth spurt too! YEAH!

 

Looks like a case of… heavy rain.

 

Wow. Who’s fighting who, and what the heck is going on? Also, rainbows!

 

That pilot’s gonna need bigger guns for sure.

 

…vultures gotta eat?

 

Yikes. Yeah, no going back from that. Definitely the point of no return.

 

Anyone else see a lot of tiny, adorable space marines, or am I losing my mind (again)?

 

That’s a unique take on the Robin Hood tale, if I ever saw one!

 

Mockup, schmockup – all I see is a cool looking GameBoy-ish screenshot, and that’s fine.

 

mmm… purple…

 

Uh, that’s a rather small town? What is going on?

 

Nothing? Boulderdash. I spy with my little eye… pixel art and… a tablet! A mysterious tablet. Yup.

 

Well, it’s often said that the most terrifying things are those shrouded by darkness, so there.

 

Yeah right. I’m calling her bluff. Right now. Prove me wrong!

 

Oho! Creativity in the making. Or something along those lines.

 

Ah, the eternal struggle: black knights vs. healers (or… wait, are the healers siding with the knights?!).

 

Read the description. Clicked to see a sword made from goblins. Cue disappointment.
