Screenshot Saturday Mondays: ghosts, Midwest mall goth and stylish violence

Every weekend, indie developers showcase their current work on Twitter #screenshot Saturday keywords. And every Monday I give you a selection of these snaps and clips.

I can’t resist water simulation, like in this demo dig from action-adventure RPG Alakenisland (out now in Steam Early Access):

Let’s finish with one of the simplest pleasures, a nice sunset from Theater – The Game (free beta available on Itch):
