For most, weekends mean two days off work with some much-needed R&R. But for game developers, it’s 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; some of which I will be critiquing every Tuesday, in Speculating Screenshots.

Eggnogs! Wait, where’s mine? Probably in one of them massive kegs. If Frogbert and/or Egbert haven’t emptied them already, that is.
But… that’s just one room. Where’s the rest of the house? Where is it?! Maybe we’ll see more of Chloe’s quarters/home next #ScreenshotSaturday? Maybe.

“Die, spider!”? I like the way this one thinks! Death to spiders and other creepy crawlers. Oh right, the game looks pretty cool too, if a tad old-school.
999 hearts? Methinks someone’s cheating. Then again, if the dev can’t cheat in his/her own creation… ya know? Also, that sign above the shop – was the writer intoxicated? Jokes aside, that 2D paper-ish look sure is stylish.

Oho! A train robbery? Where do I sign up? Wait, something tells me the player is actually in charge of defending it against dastardly outlaws, as opposed to a case of plundering. Ah well. Still looks like a good time.
