Metroid: Confrontation

So, the demo has a new name: Metroid: Confrontation


This name was suggested by Afro-Shroom.
The storyline will be on the simulation side, a training excercise based on the combat data researched in the first Zebes mission.

There were a lot of really cool ideas, and I thank you all for taking the time to share them. I had to choose the name and story that fitted the already existing demo best. Some of these ideas were so cool, that they deserve an entire game (Like the Ridley chase sequence, or the X incident dream).

If everything goes well, Metroid: Confrontation will be released on October 13th.

Glad to see you went with the Simulation suggestion, but I hope it'll still have some connections to SR388/Metroid II...

After all, Metroid II is the game I 'really' want to play.

Either way, it sounds good, so I look forward to it.

I have a question about the soundtrack of the upcoming tech demo, Metroid: Confrontation. Is Ridley going to have the same music as the last demo, or is he going to have a new song, presumabely a remix of his battle music. I hope you'll reply to this question.

Also, congrats, Afro-Shroom.

Looks great

The fact that this is PC only and not on a handheld (GBA?) like the original is a real shame. I can only really look forward to someone being crazy enough to try and port this game to C++ (good luck whoever you are, you'll need it), or someone to reverse engineer game maker (I think that is damn near impossible), else I shall not have the time to play it, though the chances of that happening are minimal. I find this to be a real shame as this looks to be a brilliant piece of work and every time I look at it I am filled with disappointment at what I will be missing.

Tahngarthor said...

Since this has evolved into a sort of seperate thing, you're still working on M2 remake alongside this, right? :)

Anonymous said...

What would be cool is this game plus a version ıf the original Metroid 2,like in Metroid Zero Mission.But that would be illegal.
I played the demo but I felt as it was too far away from the original.Still,nice job.

Tahngarthor said...

Every hack for super metroid is technically illegal, but no one has stopped them...

Digman said...
