The ABC Screenshot challenge!

A new year demands a new community challenge!
I’d like to thank a lot of people for the ideas, especially Blue and Ninglor.

How does it work?

  • There is no set game list, run the games that you believe that will give you the best chance of getting an amazing screenshot
  • There are 26 letters, so you’ll have to take at least 26 pictures. Each one should feature something started with a different letter.

Create your own theme! (optional)

If you think the challenge above is too easy for you, you may create your own theme. A theme that all pictures will have to follow.
Examples:

  • A blue theme: All pictures will feature something blue or blue will be their main color
  • An animal theme: There will be a different animal in each screenshot, corresponding to each letter - Rat, Zebra, Lion, etc
  • Winter theme: Santa, Pine cone, Gingerbread, etc

You get the idea. Be creative. Create your own challenge!

You can use this as a template to post your screenshots
[A](screenshot) | [B](screenshot) | [C](screenshot) | [D](screenshot) | [E](screenshot) | [F](screenshot)
[G](screenshot) | [H](screenshot) | [I](screenshot) | [J](screenshot) | [K](screenshot) | [L](screenshot)
[M](screenshot) | [N](screenshot) | [O](screenshot) | [P](screenshot) | [Q](screenshot) | [R](screenshot)
[S](screenshot) | [T](screenshot) | [U](screenshot) | [V](screenshot) | [W](screenshot) | [X](screenshot)
[Y](screenshot) | [Z](screenshot)


FAQ:

Can I used games that I already played before?
Sure. It’s all about being creative! It’s not an official theme, there are no “rules”. No one is forced to participate as well. I was gonna do it alone, but I thought it would be more fun to transform it into a community challenge.

I have another question!
Which part of no rules, did you not understand?! xD But seriously, do whatever work best for you!

My theme will be structures/buildings

A B C D Eiffel tower Finches’ House
G Hyrule Castle I J K L
M N O Peach’s Castle Q Restaurant
S Temple of Time U V W X
Y Z        

List of games used:
Remember Me (Steam)
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Switch)
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)
My Memory of Us (Steam)
What Remains of Edith Finch (Epic)

  • Switch games looks weird because Nintendo doesn’t let me transfer screenshots to my pc in high quality. I have to post them on Twitter and take a printscreen… /facepalm

This is a fun idea, I loved the old Scavenger Hunt monthly theme! Good luck to everyone. :)
Thinking of doing things that make me happy. Something magical in a fuzzy, feelgood way (witches, dragons, cute weird plants, etc.) or maybe jokes/things that make me smile. Will see if I get any other ideas in the meantime.

This is a nice idea! I’ll probably do the animal theme since it’s easiest for me to remember.

Edit: I’m actually going to choose “love” as my theme. Any type of love whether from a couple or the love of family or friends. Can’t wait to get started.

tsupertsundere

Huh! Fascinating! And this is meant to be a long-term challenge over the course of the year?
Very, very interesting… I’ll think a bit about what kind of theme I’d like and pick away at it.

Take as long as you want. There are no rules, so if you wanna post screenshots until 2023, it’s up to you.

Oh, this is interesting! Count me in!

I love snow and ice settings in games, so I think that’s what I’ll focus on.

There is no deadline. It’s just to have some fun.

Oh even better! If there’s no pressure to meet a date then that’s doable. Count me in.

Kyrrelin

Sound really interesting! Great idea. ;D
I would like to participate too, but all I can think of are Game Characters (main or any other), and I am not sure if that wouldn’t be too much boring. X)
Also, I know you said no questions…. ;P But is it possible to post more than one screenshot to each letter? o.O Some letters for names are very popular. XD

Here I go! :D

Anton Sokolov ; Aliena B C D E F
Grimm ; Garrus Vakarian Hornet I Jack K L
Mata Hari N The Outsider P Quirrel R
Saren Arterius T U V Wrex Urdnot X
Y Z        

My first letters - G and H. Had to be from Hollow Knight, currently one of my favorite games! :D

April Edit: I play Mass Effect on Origin so pictures are posted on Imgur.

Last.M

Sure! This “challenge” is all about fun and creativity. If you think it would be better with 1, 2 or 10 pics per letter, go ahead!

Kyrrelin

Haha, okay, I am in! Thank you! :3

I thought about stealing your building theme at first, but I thought of my own. I’m going to find characters who share names with pre-1950 historical figures or characters from literature. Oh, and I’ll arbitrarily give myself double points for characters who are their counterparts. Maybe this is too broad, though? It will mostly be up to how much I feel like thinking about it during any given game.

Interesting theme!
btw, I don’t think your link is working.

Trilled Meow

Yeah, it was late and I didn’t mess around with the screenshots yet, but thanks for the reminder because I would have forgotten. I might change to food or something.

Daerphen

Awesome idea. Thanks for bringing it up.
Not yet an idea, if I want to collect screenshots to a common topic or not. Will be decided later

Great idea, this sounds like fun! I always enjoyed the Scavenge Hunt themes (“always” both times :D).
Let’s see how many of them can I get by 24th December 2019!

Arachnids Bear Cuteness Č Death E Fight
Graves H CH I J Kitty Lockpicking
Music N O Plane crash Q Rope Ř
Sword Š Tree of Knowledge U V Warning X
Y Z Žebřík        

Added some commonly used special letters from our alphabet as a bit of extra challenge for myself. Let’s see if I can get things that start with that letter in my language.

I’m replaying Dark Souls to replace old screenshots with higher-res ones. Might as well do this. :p

Edit: (link deleted - abandoned)

Nice pics. Are you using any graphics enhancement mods? I don’t remember DS1 looking that good.

s17tabris

Yep. A bunch of texture mods and a sweetfx preset.

Last.M

Nice. I need to remember these names. I’ve been thinking about finally finishing this game on Steam. I’ve beaten a pirated copy a loooooong time ago xD

s17tabris

These are the mods I’m using:

Nice idea! Haven’t decided on a theme yet, just reserving my post. :P
