Indie game developers share their work progress every week on Twitter with the #ScreenshotSaturday hashtag. In this piece, we take a look at the most interesting and eye-catching screenshots or short videos of indie games shared on Saturday, August 14.
GameLuster has a Screenshot Saturday round-up every week. You can check out the previous list here!
The Wanderlost developer’s Twitter page (@3L1) says “Wholesome Survival RPG set in the world’s cutest post-apocalypse”, and this short gif is the perfect starting cutscene for that description! The gif was shared in this tweet, and the subtle movement of the car’s engine, the shaking head of the dog toy, and the whole artstyle just screams wholesome and cute. We are excited for Wanderlost, and the fully funded Kickstarter means that fans agree. You can wishlist the game on Steam right now.
Retreat To Enen
The twitter page for this open world survival game, Retreat To Enen (@RetreatToEnen), posted these stunning screenshots in this tweet. The look of this game for a survival game set in nature is fantastic. If the gameplay holds up to the impressive and realistic graphics of the game, Retreat To Enen will be epic. There is no set release date yet, but you can wishlist the game on Steam to get notified on release.
We have featured another lovely video from Farewell North in our Screenshot Saturday round ups before, and it seems like it’s just getting better. The developer (@kylewbanks) shared this video from the game’s tutorial in this tweet, and it’s just brilliant. The way the visual cues simply conveys what you need to do is the best way to teach how the game mechanics works, and combined with the game’s unique and stunning atmosphere, animations and transitions, it just made me more impatient to play the game! Hopefully we can enjoy the game next year, but until then, nothing is stopping us from wishlisting Farewell North on Steam.
The deveolper of this strange and vibrant looking game, Rift World, (@Paladino954) shared these screenshots in this tweet. We can see different and unique biomes in each shot, and they all look really good. We can’t wait to see more footage and gameplay from this project, and you can wishlist the game on Steam right now.
You might think the animations and combats of this short gif looks awesome, and you are right! When former God Of War animators make an indie game, we can safely raise our expectation for an awesome looking action packed game. This short video from Swordcery (@TempleDoorGames) shared on this tweet, gives a brief look in the exciting combat of the game, and we can’t wait for more.
