I think you're gonna like this

So, it was finally published and I completely missed it.
Before we go on, I have to warn you:
The following has a MAJOR SPOILER of an important part of the game.

A couple of months ago, I was contacted by Mathew Castle, from Nintendo Gamer Magazine for an interview. It's an honor to be featured in such a legendary magazine, and since this was going to be the first time I had an interview featured in a printed medium, I wanted to provide some exclusive content to spice things up. After all, these kinds of magazines do get exclusive previews all the time.

So, I invite you to read it HERE. There's already a topic about it on the Forums, if you're interested to share your oppinion 

I'll be posting about AM2R progress in a couple of days.
Have a good weekend!

I think you should go to work at Nintendo and Work with them to make new Metroids. Both 2-D and 3-D Like Metroid for the NGC and like ones for GBA. I miss playing my favorite Metroid games on the NGC.. Please stay away from the Metroid 'Other M' I really didn't like that game. Anyways. Just saying. I like those games rather than the 'Other M' Crap they tried to pull off.

Amigo te felicito, tu proyecto AM2R lleva ya 5 años de trabajo y yo lo he estado siguiendo desde entonces. No me he perdido ninguna actualización del proyecto en tu blog. Me alegra saber que profesionales se interesan cada vez mas en tu proyecto y quien sabe, puede que Nintendo te pida trabajar para ellos.
Te agradezco por dedicar tiempo a este proyecto y no defraudar a quienes esperan con ansias este gran proyecto finalizado.
Me alegro por tu familia y mis felicidades para ti por tu hijita. Quizas no me recuerdas, pero solia utlilizar el nickname "Dark Master". Antiguamente lo utilizaba.
Felicitaciones Estimado Doctor M64

That spoiler is looking pretty gorgeous. Glad I took the risk. Also, wow, five years? Man, you need to throw a party or something when the final version is finally out!

General Milky said...

Gracias milton por tan fabuloso Projecto
Esperemos que al momento de la salida nos sorprendas con muchos mas secretos
Ahora bien, tengo una duda
Al juego lo venderas? Osea deberemos pagar para poder jugarlo??
Saludos y que siga avanzando este gran Remake

Just to let you know....yes we fans are still around! I still check this blog every two weeks and hold my breathe and just hope when I click on the link there is a new post and update. I can't even put in words how much I can't wait for the completed game! I will personally send you the $39 for it when it's complete as I would pay for a new metroid at the stores. Your work as shown in the blogs and demo are fantastic!!! The time it takes to do what you have done should not go unoticed, especially with family and work! Please keep continuing and finish what has been started, as it will be one fantastic accomplishment adorned by many!! Cheers and good luck!

Congratulations on the recognition!

I've made am2r my start page, since that's really what i want to know every time i dial up the net. I'm sure i'm not the only one taking such measures.

We, your fans, love what you're doing.

Freefall said...

I didn't think that you had been working on your project for so long. But the effort put into the game really shows off that fact.

That queen looks amazing.

The tileset clashes pretty badly with her, though. I'm guessing its just a placeholder?

shinzo07 said...

Awesome i really like how you came and made a metroid 2 remake... it's really worth the wait and time reading and following your blog... it's really educational for me as an aspiring game dev, and a fan of the metroid series(especially 2d)

Passarbye said...

hey doc, glad to see the updates.
can't wait for the final release, or even the next post. :P
i'm glad to see that this project is almost done, and very happy to see that (at least some part of) nintendo approves.

thanks for the countless hours of sleep you've missed, and all the dedication to this project.
we really do appreciate it.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

en buena hora se reconoce el arduo esfuerzo q le pones al juego, anque por lo que estuve viendo en la imagen en la batalla contra la reina metroid, me percate que el cuarto es muy pequeño mas de lo que era en la version original, pienso q esto limitara la movilidad de samus, ademas que los colores de la reina son demasiado oscuros y se confunden con el fondo, por lo que suguiero q uses una paleta de color mas viva para ella o cambies el fondo dandole un tono purpura y vino, pero cabe recalcar que es una obra maestra espero impaciente por ver los progresos

I think the release of this game should be celebrated with a lot of publicity, an album (like harmony of a hunter) containing the soundtrack to the game with maybe some guest music(Metroid Metal, maybe?), a special video, and so on. Its too good to simply be released with a mere download link. Maybe to be released around metroid's next anniversary.

Couple = two. So far, the progress update hasn't come in six and a half couple days.

Don't leave us swinging in the wind, until November. Until November. Don't leave us swinging in the wiiiiiiind.

General Milky said...

The demo links were removed? Why's that?

sencillamente excelente...

Looking great! Your game is one of the few games I'm eagerly waiting to play at the moment. Metroid 2 was one of the first games I ever owned. Can't wait to play a fresh take on one of my favorite games of all time.

ianfrombristol said...

Really good interview with some probing questions and intelligent answers - well done!

SMILEuser96 said...

@General Milky:
The links are still there. Near the top of the page, below the picture, are two links saying "AM2R Demo" and "Metroid: Confrontation"

Read this in the magazine and it led me to your site. Such an exciting project, it's amazing that there are such dedicated fans that make the gaming community better for all of us. Hope everything is going well for you and I look forward to the projects outcome. The site is firmly in my favourites bar!

Soultrigger said...

Reading the spoilers definitely got me excited for the final release.

It's been such a long time since I've played a new, 2D Metroid/Mega Man game. I'm really hopeful for this project to fill that void. Keep up the good work!

AQLH said...

I would explode if this was the last of am2r!!!!!

You need to stop doing interviews. You're going to get C&D'd.
