Every weekend, indie devs show off current work on Twitter's #screenshotsaturday tag. And every Monday, I bring you a selection of these snaps and clips. This week, my eye has been caught by tactical mecha action, a spinny shotgun, and honestly a good number of games and things which I don't entirely understand—a mood I'm always here for. Check 'em out!
Tactical mech action from Kriegsfront Tactics (coming to Steam), a turn-based tactical RPG inspired by Front Mission:
Hit chances suck! Projectile collision is the way to go! Who agrees with me?— Kriegsfront Tactics (@kriegsfront) November 5, 2022
No more misses on a 90% chance. It's all in your aim.
You can aim to hit multiple enemies, but stray bullets can hit your friends too.#KriegsfrontTactics #indiegame #gamedev #screenshotsaturday pic.twitter.com/ijRlgGmuLI
I'm a sucker for a spinny reload animation, like this shotgun in illWill (coming to Steam). I like the detail of the sight flapping about too:
I did enjoy watching this, trying to figure out what ARE you?
A cute scene in "space trading life sim" Orion's End (coming to Steam):

Orion's End can be wishlisted on Steam: https://t.co/q7AcydC0ZY pic.twitter.com/d0jfqbZNWG
I do not know what this is, and I like it:
I don't know what's happening here in VR game The Indigo Parallel (coming to Steam) either, but I'm curious:
Happy #screenshotsaturday everyone! This is one of the cutscenes from The Indigo Parallel.

Not sure what this is for, but it's cute:
Precursor still looks neat:
A gentle mood from In Search Of Lost Time:
Jin is taking a rest from journey. Isn't it beautiful?— Minami (@iamdreamist) November 5, 2022

Immersive sim J(a)SON: The Dog Living Inside A Mistake has the interactions I crave:
Honestly, I'm a sucker for a gadget:
And lastly, I know this is spam slapped with rando hashtags, but I find that very funny:
What else caught your eye this weekend, reader dear?
