Indie game developers share their work progress every week on twitter with #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 29th.
Stunning Wild West Scene
In this tweet, we see a stunning view of the upcoming game, Grimwest: Gunslinger’s Odyssey. The environmental design, lighting, and animation of this short scene looks incredible. But most of all, look at that wind effect! The developers mentioned that it took a long time to create this scene, and it was definitely worth it. We are really excited to see more of Grimwest: Gunslinger’s Odyssey soon.
A Familiar Whimsical World
The screenshots of the game I Am Dead shared in this tweet had a familiar art style. Of course, this is the work of Richard Hogg, designer of beautiful games like Hohokum and Wilmot’s Warehouse. The unique world design and color pallets promises another wonderfully strange game from this designer.
Meet The Trolls!
In this tweet, the indie developers Forbidden Studios shared the first look of the trolls in their upcoming game, Among the Trolls. You might think this should be their first released screenshot of the game, but you’d be surprised of how many they have shared before finally showing off their trolls! The goofy looking troll model and the environmental design of the game catches the eye. Hopefully we can see the trolls in action soon.
Cutie of the Week
In this tweet, Max Pears (the level designer of Cyberpunk 2077) shared the first draft for the art style of his indie game and stole our hearts. The beautiful background and the cute blue figure with his big heart in the middle of his chest hints at a sweet game that we can’t wait to play!
And lastly, let’s take a look at this gorgeous game, Paper Tanks. The game’s twitter account shared a short video in this tweet and it is stunning. The notebook texture, objects like the pen and eraser acting as obstacles, the coffee stain, and the CD to the side, it all makes the game seem like the daydreamings of a bored middle school student, and we can’t wait for more.
