What is this?

This group is about an unofficial/fan made Metroid project I am working on lately. This project is to me a major test of strength for measuring my potential on the making of software and/or video games, in hope to do it for a living someday.

Why Metroid?

Well, despite knowing how sloppy the path is, I chose the Metroid franchise as a base because of a few reasons:

  • There is globally less work to do, as a consequent amount of stuff was set by the already well established franchise.
  • An already existing community with great resources and a common love for a franchise is an advantage on feedback over nothingness.
  • Of course I flippin' love Metroid! And this love is a drive for quite an adventure that will help me gain experience and knowledge as well as building general purpose tools for potential future projects.

So it is overall fairly convenient for a test run.

How about the content?

On that matter I have finally decided what directions I want this to take. I have no idea how this decision and project will be welcomed or how it will turn out with time, but I feel like Super Metroid is, despite its popularity, quite silent when it comes to official games. The first two games of the franchise had their remakes, but Super Metroid only had some more or less successful offspring. So what I have in mind is not exactly doing a 2D remake of Super Metroid, but a 3D one, as a FPS, similarly to what Prime represents, but trying to not sacrifice the dynamism and freedom of movement the first game/series had over the latter.

Unfortunately, and I'm aware of it, this is a VERY ambitious project as well as potentially forbidden. My compromise on this is to take this up to at least the landing on Zebes and keep the information communicated through demonetized medias, so no release and no monetary profit whatsoever as well as making this possible with my current means. I'm deeply sorry, in case anyone wants to try it out, but I think I might already be too disrespectful by the sole fact of running this project.

PS: I'm aware Prime 4 is on its way as well, which might nullify any sort of exposure or value this project may have, but Super Metroid Prime should still be outside of its scope in term of directions, unless Nintendo has planned something really flabbergasting or strangely along the same lines as this project.
