Screenshot Saturday, Twitter’s weekly tag for builders to share snippets of their in-progress games has once more rolled round, abandoning a treasure trove for me to select by and select some fairly gifs to share with you. Within: an over-eager goat, a sun-drenched world, and a few octopus-battling rodents.
Summer Catchers is an upcoming “road trip arcade game with adventure elements,” and it seems to be attractive as you possibly can see from the header picture above. It’s apparently about escaping the northern chilly by fleeing south, which I discover deeply relatable as we lastly get away of winter right here within the UK. There are sure obstacles in the way in which although, apparently together with goat-based crashes.
I’m unsure what I like most right here. Is it the dedication on the face of the motive force as she collects mushrooms earlier than being spun into the air? Is it the vitality implied by the fixed motion waterfall within the background? It’s most likely the way in which the goat seems to be on the digicam after the incident as if they’re fully harmless.
You can discover extra details about Summer Catchers on its Steam web page, which explains learn how to keep away from incidents like this one in addition to the sorts of encounters you possibly can count on from the non-goat inhabitants of the world.
I’m once more dreaming of daylight and hotter days because of Epitasis, a “sci-fi exploration puzzle game.” The evening time a part of this gif is good and all, and I like stars and big outsized moons as a lot as the following individual, however I need to lie down in that orange glow please.
Epitasis is a game about deciding to take an impromptu journey by an historical portal and exploring the ruins of an alien civilisation to seek out out what occurred to the individuals who as soon as lived there. Pip wrote about it when it was crowdfunding a few years in the past, and after succeeding in its purpose it apparently headed into the sharpening levels in February. “Explore at your own pace; traverse the colorful, non-linear world in any way you choose, day or night,” reads the Steam web page.
Elsewhere, I’m falling in love with a bardic squirrel.
Bruce is from a game-in-progress known as Small Saga, “a game about a very angry mouse.” Small Saga doesn’t appear to have a web site or retailer web page but, however it’s made by one of many people behind Aviary Attorney, the reasonably good hen lawyer game, so it’s somebody with a great observe file in anthropomorphic character tales. (Coincidentally, Pip wrote about that one too, and mentioned she loved what she’d performed of it on the time.)
For many extra gems ready to be dug up, take a gander in the Twitter tag itself.
