Speculating Screenshots (13th June 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. So without further ado…

Well, this proves it: triangles are evil. As are all other shapes, in case you were wondering. I sense the making of an interesting twin-stick shooter, though.

 

Maybe he shouldn’t be dealing, eh? Oh right – too late! Hmm… I wonder if it’s a whodunit?

 

Since they did ask: some cars would be nice, ya know? Just saying.

 

Wouldn’t be Speculating Screenshots without a super violent pick, so there ya go!

 

And from super violent straight onto super weird. How is this a sport, I wonder?

 

I’m sorry, but are these two gentlemen fighting or dancing? ehe

 

A cyberpunk twin-stick? Liking this already. Nice explosion too.

 

oi, that bears an uncanny resemblance to my apartment! Just kidding.

 

Oh boy. What’s in those boxes, eh? What are ya hiding?!

 

I’ve never understood why people couldn’t have face piercings, working with food. One would think they don’t put their face into the various culinary experiments, after all. Right? RIGHT? Hmm…
