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, July 3rd.
GameLuster has a Screenshot Saturday round-up every week. You can check out the previous list here!
Planet Of Lana
The Twitter page for Planet Of Lana (@PlanetofLana) shared this short video that showcases the games atmosphere and character design in this tweet. The environment design and the color palette look very calming, and the character designs are simple and beautiful. The small birds flying away as the character gets close is a nice touch that adds to the lovely atmosphere of the video, and we are looking forward to seeing more of this game. You can wishlist Planet Of Lana on Steam!
The Fiddler In The River
This lovely watercolor painting, is actually a scene from the game The Fiddler In The River developed by @milpitians and shared in this tweet. We love to see hand-drawn art styles in indie games, and the most exciting part is that you can play The Fiddler In The River right now in your browser in this link, and enjoy the short and sweet story it has to offer!
We know how challenging underwater rendering is, based on how few games actually manage to get it right. But the artist working on the game Lake (@_staggart_) showcased their latest work in this tweet. The video shows an impressive contrast between the underwater and land renderings, and they both look great! Lake is set to release in September, and you can wishlist it on Steam right now!
This stunning scene from Desolus was shared by the game’s developer (@DesolusDev) in this tweet. The game is about exploring a city of Gothic architecture, and this scene really captures the intimidating feeling of this architecture style with just a distant skyline. We can’t wait to see the city up close!
World’s Worst Handyman
Every once in a while, we see a quirky and funny game idea in our Screenshot Saturday round-ups that we fell in love with, and this week The World’s Worst Handyman stole our hearts! This trailer was shared by the game’s developer (@KirtOlson) in this tweet. The idea of going to people’s houses, screwing up their stuff, and then running away from the angry house owners is so hilarious, and we can’t wait for the game to come out later this year! You can wishlist this game on Steam right now to get notified when the release date is announced.
