Every weekend, indie devs show off current work on Twitter's #screenshotsaturday tag. And every Monday (well, unless it's a holiday), I bring you a selection of these snaps and clips. This week, my eye has been caught by decorating tapes, a wide range of wet worlds, a spread of cool violence, a murderous squirrel, and yes, immersive sims. Come admire these attractive and interesting indie games!

Squirrel With A Gun (coming to Steam) remains ridiculous:

Vandalism and fiddlebits in Half-Life mod TimeWarp (demo available on ModDB):

Customising your tape collection in (coming to Steam), a "roguelite music builder" where I thinnnk you make music by building landscapes:

Jumping between layers of the level in watery watercolour explore 'em up Echo Of The Waves (coming to Steam):

A striking seascape in The Fall Of Theseus (devblog on Tumblr):

Yet more moistness in Faerie Afterlight (coming to Steam, with a demo there now):

Marketing is part of development for most games, and it's interesting to see these experiments made public by VR spaceship dogfighter Alliance Peacefighter (website here):

An interesting take on parrying:

Whoa hello SyS KillMirror (available on Itch in alpha):

New security devices often open exciting new security holes, and magnet-jumping off security camera cages in immersive sim Etos seems great fun:

By popular demand, here's immersive sim Spectra once again, this time showing off shoving:

Creeping about in turn-based roguelikelike survival game The Outer Zone (coming to Steam, with a demo there now):

All I know about this game, and all I need know about this game, is that it has a grappling hook:

As a frequent turtler in retro real-time strategy games, I do appreciate this gate animation in D.O.R.F. (coming to Steam):

Cool violence in Neon Inferno:

Cool violence in Against Great Darkness (coming to Steam, with a demo there now, and Itch):

And cool violence in this yet-unnamed (I think?) shooter starring one of the skullbats frequently seen in the dev's other games:

What else caught your eye this weekend, reader dear?
