Speculating Screenshots (23rd April 2016)

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.

Well, having fans is good…

How on Earth does one tell time with that thing?

Curses. For a sec there I mistook it for a screenshot of an obscure platformer!

Octo-fight! Fight! Fight!

Wait, what? A Tetris-style… digger? Now I’ve seen (almost) everything.

Dem Bones, eh?

Cats with jetpacks? Man, technology.

Ah, surely it’s buzzing with excitement (heehee).

The NES is strong with this one.

Last but not least, something truly haunting.
