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.

What can I say? I like me some ASCII roguelikes, ever since the days of Moria, Rogue, Nethack, Omega and so on…

I know, I know: not an indie game. By a long shot. So… I’m allowing myself to break the rules for something this awesome!

Adorably fiendish, but perhaps more importantly, what’s that crystal-y thing in her right hand?
