Screenshot Saturday Mondays: skeleton wrestling and squirrel muggings

Admiring more interesting 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 art made of hands, skeleton wrestling, and a squirrel horrifyingly climbing people to rob them.

Honestly a perfect version of Metal Gear Solid's frisking in Squirrel With A Gun (coming to Steam). If a squirrel climbed you, would you be in a position to stop it robbing you?

Oleomingus make some of the best-looking video games, so I long to explore these corridors myself one day. That said, I do see they have a small new game out right now, which I must check out after finishing this post.

I continue to be delighted by this yet-unnamed tiny building game which, a bit like Townscaper, contextually changes the shapes you block out into different forms:

As a noted appreciator of water, I appreciate Saralie Wagstrom's work on this untitled (I think?) hobby project.

I am always sad when a 2D platformer hurts me for jumping on someone's head, rather than them, so I'm glad to see even a shooty-shooty platformer like Sinus (coming to Steam) has bonking:

Honestly, you don't even need to ask. Just leave me unattended in a room with these potions and I'll take care of the problem (or the problem will take care of me?).

I do like handcrafted games made with whatever materials are at hand, so good job Out Of Hands:

Especially after Mothered's secret mini-sequel a few weeks back, I am super up for more cyberhorror from Echostasis (coming to Steam).

Cute skylarking from Cloud Jumper (coming to Steam:

And let's close on some great wisdom from, I think, Mushroom Musume (early version available free from Itch):
