For most, weekends mean two days off work with some much-needed R&R. But for game developers, it’s 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; some of which I will be critiquing every Tuesday, in Speculating Screenshots.
Goodness, that dude looks downright ticked off! Pixellated and ticked off – what a combo, eh? Could it be that he’s waiting for someone to meet him in that office-looking room, or… maybe he’s there to exact vengeance? Or… well, hard to say, really.
Red Goddess (@RedGoddessgame)
That’s one hot looking town. In fact, some might say it’s actually… blazing. Get it? Eh? Right. Anyway, bad jokes aside, Red Goddess is definitely shaping up to be quite the nice looking Unreal Engine 4 game, that’s for sure.
AI-Kingdoms (@API_Beast) Hmm… “no simulation yet”, eh? Shame, but that’s WIP for ya. That said, I do like how the game utilizes a Chinese setting, as opposed to the typical western stuff found in most other genre entries. Can’t wait to see where this one’s going.
Empires in Ruins (@EiR_TD)
Would ya look at that: another historical(?) strategy title! Not sure where this one takes place, or when, though, but… dev has a point in that history really doesn’t have any use for losers. Whether this particular choice of screenshot is an indication of a steep difficulty remains to be seen (bet it is).
Lenna’s Inception (@tccoxon)
Hardly the most lighthearted pick from this past #ScreenshotSaturday, but a worthy one nonetheless. We mustn’t forget the dead, after all, for while they may be gone, they’re still with us in spirit. Come to think of it, maybe that’s how it is in Lenna’s Inception, albeit in a more… literal sense? Maybe.
