Screenshots*, taken on a Saturday, pooled collectively on a Sunday. It’s time for a peek at some upcoming video games that builders have been sharing progress of this week on Twitter. Inside: a tranquil second among the many struggle for survival; an ominous speaking billboard; and obliterating a robotic, however make it trend.

*They’re nonetheless principally gifs, the eye economic system hates stillness.

First, a second of serenity from Year In The Trees, with the sunshine filtering down onto a hobbit gap root cellar:

This could be luring us right into a false sense of safety considerably although, as in response to the sport’s website it’ll be a survival RPG wherein you’ll have to “reside off of the land and battle harmful creatures as you discover deep into the wilderness.” However boy does all of it look attractive, and it sounds it too, with “peaceable forest libraries, historical stone ruins, hidden treetop cities, and crystalline caves…lone woodsmen and witches, bandits and scoundrels, and fantastical creatures each buddy and foe.”

Much less welcoming are the streets of the town in Copper Dreams, encouraging us all to snitch:

There are, it’s going to in all probability not shock you to be taught, an entire lot of video games being made at anybody time. You possibly can take a stroll via the Twitter tag your self to get an impression of simply what number of.
