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, October 9.
GameLuster has a Screenshot Saturday round-up every week. You can check out the previous list here!
This video from The Soulkeeper was shared by the game's Twitter page (@SoulKeeperGame) in this tweet. The footage shows a stunning environment in the middle of an ominous swamp, which is complemented by the candle lights and the swinging pot in the small hut. The game looks amazing, and we can't wait to see more in the coming weeks.
The Lost Wild
This screenshot from The Lost Wild was shared by the developers (@GreatApeGames) in this tweet. The rainy night, the floodlights, and the primal predators roaming around create a beautiful yet scary scene, and it looks like a perfect Jurassic Park-style game. We are excited to find out more about the game in the future.
We had featured another character design from the Clearings in one of our previous roundups, and with this short video that the game's Twitter page (@ClearingsGame) shared in this tweet, they proved that they are gonna nail every character art for the game! The jewelry adorned fancy shark looks really unique and its subtle movements are wonderfully creepy.
These screenshots from Mothmen 1966 were shared by the developers (@lcbgamestudio) in this tweet. The negative color scheme of the pixel art gives the game a very unique and dreadful feeling, and the art style seems perfect for a memorable visual novel. You can play Mothmen 1966's demo on Steam right now.
The Perfect Pencil
This week's final entry is a special tweet that wasn't shared during Screenshot Saturday, but it was shared the next day, during World Mental Health day by the creator of The Perfect Pencil (@perfect_pencil). In this thread, the developer talks about their own struggles and journey towards mental health, and how it inspires the game that they are making today. We loved The Perfect Pencil when we first saw and featured it on one of our previous roundups, and now that we know the emotions and passion that are being put into this project, we are even more invested.
