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, May 7th.
GameLuster has a Screenshot Saturday round-up every week. You can check out the previous list here.
It’s always fascinating to see how games have changed during development, and this video from Railbound, shared by the developers (@AfterburnGames) in this tweet, shows a few different stages of development and how they ended up with this cute cartoonish art style. Railbound is a unique and cute puzzle game releasing later this year, and you can wishlist the game on Steam to get notified about the launch date.
These screenshots from Exoria were shared by the developers (@tinysoup_ent) in this tweet. The game is a co-op survival inspired by Greek mythology, and in these screenshots, we see the concept art of Athena as one of the game’s bosses. The art and character design look stylish and beautiful, and we can’t wait to see what other Greek gods will look like in the game.
Lightyears From Home
This video from Lightyears From Home was shared by the game’s Twitter page (@LightyearsGame) in this tweet. We’ve seen how gorgeous the game looked before, but now with the full transition to Unreal Engine 5, the environment, the lighting, and the atmosphere of different locations, simply look amazing. We hope to learn more about the game and see more gameplay footage in the future.
Soul of Kaeru
These screenshots from Souls of Kaeru were shared by the developers (@brainup_studio) in this tweet. The game’s colorful and lively art style reminds me of classic 3d platformers, and it really makes me want to explore the game’s world and see what sort of weird and wonderful adventures are waiting for me. Hopefully, we all get to experience what the game has to offer soon.
This video from Torii was shared by the developers (@Kougami91) in this tweet. The video shows how surreal the game’s world is, especially the scenes where the character transitions between seemingly different dimensions, and there are bright colorful fish floating around them. Torii is set to release later this year, and you can wishlist the game on Steam right now.
