A LOT of fun stuff this week for #ScreenshotSaturday, as devs are plowing away into the quickly chilling Fall season with coffee (hopefully not Pumpkin Spice anything) and Cider Mill Donuts at their sides. Follow along as we take a look at some of the really interesting ones, or hop on Twitter and peep for yourself. Joy!
As usual, full credit to all of the creators each week who share their work.
Our header image is from Deathrash (from Stephan Hövelbrinks), which sounds as cool as the pixel art shows us. It reminds me visually of Space Quest, but bloodier!

Riv Hester brings us another space-infused indie game, with Reliquary. He’s been playing with getting a charge attack to work, which looks pretty neat here.
Added a charge attack to melee weapons in Reliquary. #gamedev #indiedev #screenshotsaturday pic.twitter.com/R3qpgPoQID — Riv Hester (@Ahr_Ech) October 4, 2015

Indie devs don’t just stick to pixel art as their preferred style. This 3D work by Matt at FMJ Games shows the power of modern affordable game dev tools.
Got the FPS animations of the archer shooting arrows working! WooHoo #Indiedev #UE4 #VR #screenshotsaturday pic.twitter.com/P2C5FXiZLE — Matt Matt3D (@FMJgames) October 4, 2015
Whoa, the multiple layers of scrolling (and great art style) in Jetpack Squad looks great!

I don’t know what Fugl is supposed to be, but a voxel bird flying throw canyons? Yes, please!

Aviary Attorney is an actual thing, and a thing that looks so quirky it may have climbed to the top of my WTF OKAY LET’S DO THIS pile.
Got to be honest. I’m dog-tired of writing these pawful puns. It’s ruff work. #screenshotsaturday pic.twitter.com/AZn6tetdYh — Aviary Attorney (@AviaryAttorney) October 4, 2015
