It’s Saturday, and that means it’s time for another Screenshot Survey. Every week, we take a look at a few cool new games in the works by game developers Tweeting with #ScreenshotSaturday. For even more games you might be interested in, check out this hashtag on Twitter.
This week, we have demonic vehicles, cute ninjas, futuristic taxis, and a gritty roguelite. If you’re interested in any of these games, be sure to give the developers a follow on Twitter or check out their official websites.
Iron Meat Screenshot Survey

When you’ve been gaming for a long time, you think you’ve seen everything. I give you Iron Meat, a strangely named run-and-gun game with an absolutely insane boss. In the GIF above, you can see a horrifying, demonic truck with chitinous legs, a scorpion-like tail, and it even spews fire from its mouth. This got me excited to see what else Iron Meat has to offer, because I love the unique design of this evil vehicle.
Iron Meat is an old-school title with Contra-like gameplay. According to developer Razz, it features eight levels and a multitude of guns. Per the game’s itch.io page, it will feature even more insane bosses like what we see above. With a well-designed, retro-art style, it looks faithful to those run-and-guns we all know and love.
Sneaky Ninja Screenshot Survey

Pretty much everybody loves ninjas, especially when they look as cute and rotund as they do in Sneaky Ninja. In the above GIF, our little, cunning protagonist eavesdrops on some loose-lipped samurai. Platforming in Sneaky Ninja looks bouncy and enjoyable. I’m interested in learn more about the stealth mechanics of Sneaky Ninja. If developer Starfall Studios can find a nice balance between stealth and platforming, it should be another hit like Mark of the Ninja.
Sneaky Ninja is a yet-to-be-released 2D stealth platformer coming to the Nintendo Switch, Steam, and apparently the Wii U. The game’s eventual release holds much promise as Nintendo included Sneaky Ninja in its Nindies lineup. This title looks like the perfect little platformer for the Switch, so hopefully it’ll release soon!
Hover Cabby Screenshot Survey

You ever watch Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones and say to yourself, “Yeah, I really want to ride in one of those space cars.” I know I have, and Hover Cabby looks like the closest way to live out that fantasy. With stomach-churning speed, our taxi can plummet and hover up at a fast speed. Hopefully the passenger inside is wearing their seat belt.
According to developer Out of Bounds Games‘ Twitter feed, Hover Cabby is “a fast paced futuristic driving game for PC and consoles.” Details on the game seem sparse other than the preexisting Tweets on the game, but there seems to be plenty of ways to dangerously navigate throughout this futuristic city. If Hover Cabby plays like Crazy Taxi did back in the day, count me in.
Sin Slayers Screenshot Survey
For #screenshotsaturday we’ve prepared the Ruins of Lust. Beautiful palaces became ruins, Royal Gardens overgrown with vines and weeds. One of the most beautiful places in the valley became a haven for monsters.#gaming #roguelike #roguelite #gamedev #JRPG #pixelart #indiedev pic.twitter.com/yUjbL7c2yC

Sin Slayers appears to evoke a sense of scale and wonder that is truly impressive. Many roguelite fantasy RPGs of this caliber appear generic or fail to deviate from the norm. Sin Slayers’ world looks intriguing to explore and seems to capture the feeling of an adventure. While the haven above is infested with monsters, I still think it retains its beauty before it became a perilous place for adventurers.
Sin Slayers is an upcoming roguelite, turn-based RPG set to release this year. Players craft a band of adventurers and embark on a grimdark journey. Sin is a prevailing theme throughout the game. Choices made on your adventure either raise or lower your team’s sinfulness, which dictates how difficult Sin Slayers will be for you. If the above games were too lighthearted for you, Sin Slayers looks to provide a nice change.
