Screenshot Saturday Sundays: Keep it clear, eat properly and go for a stroll

Screenshot Saturday Sundays! A digital picturebook of vacation snaps from throughout the game improvement globe, delivered straight to Twitter’s doorstep each seven days. This week, we’re principally operating down good lockdown apply: wash up usually, eat properly, and keep in mind to take a pleasant stroll from time to time. Maybe don’t go hopping on trains proper now, thoughts.

Let’s start by getting some recent air with Pattern, which is making ready for a full launch on April seventh.

A self-described game about making games, Alice O took a walk down Pattern’s procedurally-generated wilds final yr. Galen Drew’s dreamy landscapes appear nearly intentionally unintended, with what little context surrounding the world reflecting a way of discovering that means in hindsight. Or, maybe, I’m studying an excessive amount of right into a two-line Steam description. Who may say?

That first free demo remains to be obtainable over on, with a full launch on Steam subsequent month.

I hope you’re all remembering to clean your fingers after you go outdoors, thoughts. In My Work Is Not Yet Done, that may not even be sufficient.

I like a lot about this on a floor degree. The surveillance, the shuttering digicam lenses and transitions, the outrageously fashionable interface moments. But there’s a lot extra occurring in developer Spencer Yan’s piece – a monochromatic, bureaucratic tackle Dante’s Inferno.

My Work Is Not Yet Done is however one among Yan’s many works exploring his relationship with God, as defined in RPS contributor Edwin Evan-Thirwell’s fascinating dialog with the developer on the horror of God in videogames.

Christ, that every one bought fairly heavy. Here, sit, and we’ll see about cooking up some dinner with Venba.

Artist Sam Elkana has nailed this very particular 90s Cartoon Network look, albeit with hotter tones than the Powerpuff Girls ever hit. Venba appears to be a cooking game about an immigrant mom from South India. It seems just like the group’s having a hell of a time cooking up dishes in preparation for dropping them into the game, too. No, your stomach’s rumbling.

Finally: I briefly famous Ivan “Nothke” Notaros’ Thought of Train once we checked out Yugo Trip in a screenshot round-up the other week. Well, he’s solely gone and posted it within the tag, so I figured I’d give youse a peep.

I’ve all the time fairly favored trains, y’know? Even made a game about ’em myself. It’s only a disgrace they’re so bloody garbage right here within the UK. I’m keen on the nice and cozy, intricate particulars of Notaros’ practice cab right here, as block backdrops roll out and in behind dunes and hillsides.

Lovely stuff.
