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.

A company that makes video games, yet everyone’s asleep at their workstation? Must be Ubisoft!

I’d be more intimidated by those bird-like creatures. Just saying…

Creepy. So very creepy, and yet, so very cool looking. I think.
Where’s the horror? The survival? The public has a right to know! More zombies, less… church?

Yeah. Fine. If you’re eager to find out what the afterlife is like…
