Screenshot Saturday Mondays: Retro styles and dynamically slicing a cat (the cat is fine)

Admire these interesting and attractive indie games

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 retro-inspired stylings everywhere from JRPGs to platformers, and a demonstration slicing a cat Revengeance-style (do not worry, the cat is fine, it's not a real cat, it isn't even meant to be a fake cat, it really is fine). Come admire these interesting and attractive indies!

A staggering stack of guns in roguelikelike shooter Vampire Hunters (coming to Steam):

A tricky shot in Sniper Killer (coming to Steam), a game where you play both a sniper on a rampage and the detective hunting them:

A good book slam in monster-hunting horror shooter The Axis Unseen (coming to Steam):

An awful lot going on in "multiplayer skate shooter" TrickShot (coming to Steam):

Really into this hallway from a yet-unnamed (I think?) game:

Likewise, I don't know what this is but I adore those wibbly hands (and am always happy to be reminded of Bernband) and that whole look:

Going to ramming speed above the clouds of Jupiter in roguelikelike dogfighter Nova Squadron (coming to Steam, with an early demo there now):

A cool intermission screen in roguelikelike brick-breaking shmup Against Great Darkness (coming to Steam):

A Gothic Ferris wheel in The Silent Swan (coming to Steam), a 'Dear Esther meets Amnesia' kinda open-world game set in a vast empty city, which kept me curious when I played the Next Fest demo:

A great look to Heavydelic (coming to Itch.io):

A pretty place in this yet-unannounced adventure game:

More prettiness here from diorama builder Islands & Trains (coming to Steam, with an early demo there now):

A striking background in platformer Project Zi:

Neat retro stylings in platformer Rog & Roll (coming to Steam, with a demo there now):

And retro-styled survival horror in Ground Zero:

Plus retro-styled JRPG violence from Forge Of The Fae (coming to Steam):

Playful exploration in Wilderless (currently in early access on Steam):

We end with the traditional visit to Kitty Corner, where- oh no.

What else caught your eye this weekend, reader dear?
