Screenshot Saturday Sundays: Desert oceans, cursed televisions and thieving woodland critters

Spread the love

Screenshot Saturday Sundays! Every week, a procession of recreation builders and aspiring hobbyists come heads bowed, providing up their darling prototypes and unfinished works. Every week, I’m burdened with deciding on a scant handful to current to you, pricey reader. This week: crusing sandy seas, a medieval supply service, bin-raking bandits and the worst tv.

Huge, featureless, quietly hostile and flowing with the altering wind – deserts are mainly oceans, Purple Sails reckons, so why not put a ship in a single?

Conceived as a scholar undertaking from recreation design graduate Leonardo Montes, Purple Sails is an unconventional exploration recreation about crusing the desert in quest of stranded travellers. I am keen on the way in which the sands shift and half like water whereas retaining sufficient physicality to really feel strong, granular – painted in heat tones that instantly evoke the same crusing piece from Lieve Oma developer Florian Veltman.

You possibly can’t keep at sea (sand or no) ceaselessly, although. Making landfall, we emerge from the wind-swept fields to discover a lonely outdated tower in Kunstaat’s Fechex Quest.

It’s virtually annoying how “videogame” a reputation that’s for such a delightful-looking recreation. Whereas described as a medieval/fantasy supply recreation, there’s little of the litter or “ye olde” aptitude that such an outline would possibly entail. As an alternative, Kunstaat’s areas are huge, comfortable, painted in very distinct panels and broad strokes like a extra intentionally three-dimensional Proteus. I’m able to tread by means of these woods – simply, possibly beneath a extra becoming title, yeah?

Oh, to be a raccoon strolling by means of the streets at daybreak, looking for a bin to rake and a ruckus to begin.

Whereas this week’s seize of Christian Sparks’ untitled raccoon ’em up is trying mighty fairly, it’s the garbage-critter itself that’s been the star over the previous couple of weeks. Lengthy earlier than the flowery lighting results and daring textures, every week has seen the wee factor be taught to stroll, run, climb, and commit grand theft donut towards a small household enterprise convincingly. You recognize, the raccoon fundamentals.

Lastly – I’m feeling fairly good about not having a telly anymore, readers. Anybody fancy a smooch?
