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.
It's 2021, a new year. Let's leave last year behind and enjoy some new games that you can probably expect to come out this year.
Jumping through clouds is an actual mechanic in Cloud Jumper - you suck them up to charge your boost! 🤯— Rob Madden (@LaffingLad) January 2, 2021

It's fitting that we're taking flight in this Screenshot Survey entry, as the new year just launched. Let's begin with Cloud Jumper, a beautiful and vibrant game that takes place within the clouds. The clouds aren't just for looks either, since you'll use this cute little airship to hop around and get a boost. It looks incredibly satisfying to rush through them and see the clouds break up.
Developed by Hyper Luminal Games Ltd., Cloud Jumper is an upcoming exploration-based title. There's different ways to play in Cloud Jumper, including as a trader, explorer, or researcher. Based on the way you play, you can upgrade your ship accordingly. Cloud Jumper has no release date yet, so stay tuned.
For today's #screenshotsaturday, we show off the work @nicmark267 did to upgrading the H402 in #projectgenesis. We go from a blocky slugger silhouette to a more aggressive #streetfighter look 🥋— 8 Circuit Studios (@8circuitstudios) January 2, 2021

We're taking a look at another airship, albeit this one is much more futuristic. This H402 looks fantastic in action, flying and floating around a stunning environment. I love the inclusion of the model so you can appreciate the detail and artistry put into this ship. The new version of this ship looks even better, too.
Project Genesis is an Early Access multiplayer title developed by 8 Circuit Studios. In Project Genesis, gameplay combines intergalactic battles with breaching mechanics. At one point, you'll be in a ship flying around in third person, and the next moment you might be breaching on board in a FPS-style view. TechRaptor writer Robert N. Adams interviewed the developers of Project Genesis in 2019, so check it out!

Here's what I appreciate about this NPC's dialogue: He's very upfront and honest. I play games like World of Warcraft all the time, and NPCs seem afraid to use some harsher language. This fellow right here, he's not afraid to sling some expletives around. Now, he looks pretty fancy and wealthy too, so I'm sure it's worth the reward.
Go Fight Fantastic! is an upcoming stylish co-op title developed and published by a studio sharing the same name. In this game, players fight against alien invaders as three different classes, each with unique abilities. Grab a couple friends and partake in some fun hack n' slash gameplay when Go Fight Fantastic! releases later this year.
Let's take a look at the redesigned Chapter 1!#BrightBlades #SRPGstudio #gamedev #indiegamedev #indiedev #indiegame #indiewatch #indieGameTrends #indiedevhour #screenshotsaturday pic.twitter.com/QZZLPVDpoH— Sam Rowett Games - BRIGHT BLADES (@SamRowettGames) January 2, 2021
Spend about two minutes with me talking about my video game tastes, and you'll soon find out that I like Fire Emblem. So of course, when I see a new strategy RPG in the style of Fire Emblem, I get excited. There's just not a lot of these games out there, which is unfortunate, because I can never get enough of the gameplay. Already I can recognize the inspiration with the visuals and map design. It takes me back to the good ol' days when Fire Emblem was on the Game Boy Advance.
Bright Blades is an upcoming SRPG title. What I like about Bright Blades is that it's touted as "beginner friendly," which is great since the genre is often a little intimidating to get into. Sam Rowett, Game and Narrative Designer for Bright Blades, promises over 30 levels and a story involving Princess Freya of Titania. You can download the demo on Rowett's website now.
