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.

Not sure how that’d work, but darn if it isn’t a neat idea…
What? I know. Not really a screenshot. What can I say – I’m a Twine fan!

Angry John, eh? Wonder what pissed him off enough to go blowing stuff up.

I’d say “what a cute birdie” for sure, if only it didn’t look so darn predator-ish, ya know?

Hey it’s the yellow brick road… without bricks!

GigaGirl, eh? I see what you did there. That and what CAPCOM never did. Not sure why.

Would you say it’s… fortified? Eh? Eh?
Waitaminute, is that a jack-o-lantern with horns?!

Oh! A fully destructable city! YEAH!
Wrapping up this week’s Speculating Screenshots is a… boney fella. Yup.
