"No, no, no, no, YES!" That's the sound of a person trying to get that perfect shot of a blueberry muffin from above for the (Insta-)gram. You know what? We encourage this behavior! We've kinda always felt like that too. I have to cast my mind back quite far in order to recall specifics about Nippon Marathon development, some design decisions stand out more than others and one of those was the snapshot that the victor sometimes receives.
Nippon Marathon Snapshot - You are Excellent
Here it is, the momentary bit of downtime, your opportunity to take a swig of your drink or scratch your nose, or so you think. I decided to hijack that moment where the two remaining contestants come up for air for the snapshot. A quick scan through the Steam Community screenshots demonstrates how shareable these became. They give you a brief glimpse of the last moment of gameplay from an angle you rarely see, some make your look triumphant and glorious like Snuguru here...
... while others show off the game's erm, quirkier side such as this one featuring Superfan, a shiba inu and a cloud of dust that happens to have appeared in a rather unfortunate position:
Either way, they were intended to give the player a little surprise and the opportunity to take a screenshot and keep it or share it with others, this is a fun mechanic and is also great for us -indie devs rely on fans sharing the things they like, so please don't hesitate to share screenshots and video captures of your favourite games!
To celebrate, we've collated a top ten of our favourites from our Nippon Marathon community

UEDI: Shadow of the Citadel Screeenshot Feature
We love seeing you share screenshots with the community, which is why we feel that it is an important feature to keep for our upcoming title.
The photo mode in UEDI will be more elaborate than the Nippon Marathon photo mode, allowing the player the ability more options and flexibility in producing their screenshot.
This will involve the ability to change costumes, hair and pose. The varying environments and changing time of day will also allow for more unique screenshots to be taken.
We hope that you continue to share your Nippon Marathon screenshots and look forward to seeing your UEDI screenshots.
Have a screenshot to share! Get in touch, we'd love to see them!
