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 a great deal of stylish action, some cool animations, and some wonderful/horrible claymation effects. Check 'em out!
Accurate and horrifying physics in Super Clay Boy (follow on IndieDB), made by the main 3D artist of Inscryption:
A striking first-person swordfight with a grappling hook and big dashes:
Another sword duel, this one with a lot more posing:
A cute attack animation idea for an angry amanita in 2D platformer Color Story: Pixa's Quest (coming to Steam):
Speaking of cute attack animations, I dig these prone slideshoots from StarIliad, a metroidvania set inside a giant space whale:
A good (bad) mood from post-apocalyptic car combat game Fumes (paid pre-alpha available on Itch):
Flawless Abbey (coming to Steam) is a curious one:
Mech combat game Bakemono - Demon Brigade Tenmen Unit 01 (out on Steam Early Access) is one of the few games to make me wish my eyes worked with VR goggles. I think that list of inspirations is Amored Core: For Answer, Titanfall 2, and Devil May Cry.
I adore how much tying strings to thumbsticks totally changes the vibe of the motion:
You know I can't resist nice water, like this in Mika And The Witch's Mountain (coming to Steam):
An almost distractingly pretty background from a non-stealth moment in "fast-paced stealth game" Project Neo Chaos:
Might be just a shader rather than a game, but I absolutely cannot resist jellyfish:
A striking game for the ZX Spectrum, which certainly counts as a personal computer:
If you like these concrete scenes from Podvarak, do also check out the Brutalist map pack for Quake:
And lets close on a lesson in solving duck puzzles from Irish adventure game An Aisling:
What else caught your eye this weekend, reader dear?
