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.

Uh-oh. I don’t like the looks of those barrels up ahead. No idea if they’re new, but… KABOOM!

I’m sorry, but however stylish looking, he (she?) is so dead. There’s no way. Nope.

Incredibly situational, albeit quite sound advice. Fight! FIGHT!

And I thought my apartment was tiny. Also, light up that fireplace – those two are obviously freezing!
