PAX East is right around the corner. Un-Springlike snow is falling. Hockey and Basketball are in playoff mode. E3 rumors are starting. And I’m trying to wrap my head around scheduling everything for the next 3 months. It’s going to be HECTIC.
Thankfully, we can take some time out at have a peep at some of the neat games that are gracing us for this week’s #ScreenShotSaturday. There are a few more folks working on their LowRez Game Jam submissions, some projects in Alpha, and a few nearing completion.
Hunker down, here we go!
Zarya and the Cursed Skull seems to borrow some thematic elements from Indiana Jones (exploration, adventure), and the latest images seem to show a bit more of the narrative.

Another LowRezJam project, this one by pizzlemank has a nice use of a fisheye camera lens effect.
