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, December 19, 2020 and Saturday, January 2, 2021.
Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards
This screenshot that Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards twitter account (@AlunaSuperhero) shared in this tweet is so full of character, history and beauty that I fell in love with the game instantly. Imagine my excitement when I realized the game is coming out soon! While there’s no exact release date, we can expect to see it on all platforms.
The studio developing Hell Glider (@debaserdigital) shared this short video in this tweet, and it looks like we should expect a fun and fast paced game from this studio! The way the character swings around in the beautiful environment is really exciting, and we can’t wait to see more.
Robert Yang (@radiatoryang) shared these screenshots in this tweet, and showed the beautiful terrain and environment design of their upcoming project. The architecture of the abandoned ruin and the landscape looks intriguing, and it promises a game that we really want to explore.
The studio developing Sbirz (@SplashteamDevs) shared these amazing scenes from their game in this tweet. Details remain scarce, but it appears to blend 3D backgrounds with 2D characters. The cartoonish art style looks fantastic, the character looks very cute, and we are hoping to play a great game when it comes out!
The Cabbage Effect
This hilarious gunslinger is from The Cabbage Effect that was shared by the developer (@DinartFilho) in this tweet. The art style is really cute and the animation is perfect for the world this game is creating. We are hoping to see more of this unique game in the coming weeks!
Trying out different art styles usually result in unique and stunning visuals, and @Nothke shared some of their experiments with this endeavor in this tweet. The lighting, color pallets and shading style of these scenes look unique and mysterious, and we are glad that we got to see these amazing screenshots last week!
