Screenshot Saturday Sundays: Monitoring fossils and sprouts within the haunted valleys

Screenshot Saturday Sundays! In contrast to sure sea-dwellers on the positioning, I’ve already caved and cranked up the heating for a protracted, chilly winter – so why not get yourselves toasty too and wrap up for one more batch of beautiful videogame screenshots? This week: picturesque platforming, sentient seeds, Welsh nation horror, and trilobites.

Let’s begin in the present day’s session with somewhat artwork historical past, lets?

In a weird act of Grand Theft Monet, Pat Naoum’s painted platformer The Grasp’s Pupil begins the exhibit by nicking a ship straight out of the French artist’s 1874 portray Le Pont d’Argenteuil. Whereas the transition is trying somewhat shaky proper now, there’s a enjoyment of scrolling the feed and seeing how Naoum has chosen to deconstruct numerous works, separating them into layers and deciding which components could be chopped off for puzzle platforming development.

Sticking with “novel platformers with neat looks”, our subsequent entry is tumbling seeds on the backside of the world.

Seedlings has sprouted up on this column earlier than, but it surely’s all the time price checking in in your vegetation to see how they’ve grown. What I really like about this week’s put up is the movement, including a complete new degree of depth to the photo-collage look of Bardsley’s botanic journey.

Apart from, it’s uncommon {that a} sport takes us all the best way right down to New Zealand – rarer nonetheless for one to set itself within the valleys of Wales.

With Watch Canines Legion busy cyberpunk’ing up London, I’ve been considering lots about how underused different components of the British Isles are in video games. Taking us to the oft-neglected valleys of Wales, Chasing Static is a moody-first individual spooker impressed by 80s Sci-Fi horror and modern surrealist cinema – boasting a creepy lo-fi 3D look we’re positive to see a complete lot extra of within the run-up to Halloween.

Lastly… dare ye enter Da Trilobite Zone?

In a follow-up Tweet, Brady Soglin wish to apologise for any insinuation that the the ‘bites don’t chunk – they’ve bitten up to now and can achieve this once more. Take care within the zone, readers.
