The page loaded, and I involuntarily made a sound somewhere between an exited yelp and a gasp.

I have been following this project since I was in 7th grade. The first post I believe I read was "A little sick" back when h1n1 was a thing.

Its hard to believe it's almost finally over. It's been one hell of a journey Doc, I wish you the best of luck over this next month. Godspeed

Wow, I've been following this blog for years, before I even really played Metroid honestly :P and now it's finally coming out. I just took the time to finally marathon all the main entries in the series (except Other M, I'll get there soon) so after years of dedicated hard work on your part it's surreal but sweet to finally see the project coming to fruition.

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST. I was in the middle of a class and I let out a really loud yelp of surprise and excitement. Everyone stared at me but I don't give a FUCKING SHIT because this is way more important than that. I'm so excited!!!

Dominique Gendron-Langlois said...

Wow. You did it man. Nintendo won't give us a proper metroid game? I guess you are up tp the task. if there's any way to support you, please share a paypal link or whatever. I will pay for this game. they ask 40 bucks for federation crap? I will give you 40 bucks to you instead.

So excited! I've replayed the recent demo at least 3 times in its entirety as well as several times during previous versions and confrontation. I've been fiending so much that I even had to replay Fusion, Zero Mission, and Other M
Honestly, I bought a SNES30 usb bluetooth controller specifically for playing AM2R, before discovering how well it adapts to emulators and my already owned titles.

metroids 30th anniversary you sly dog you

Auto Pilot said...

I think you just blew my mind!

Kingdeather said...

6 Years... and it's finally coming to a close.
Being a massive junkie for the 2D Metroid games, I gotta say that seeing the development of this project coming to a close is bittersweet. It's been fun seeing how things have changed, and learning how the world was put together. Even if I didn't directly partake with the development itself (I played the demo only recently, though I had known of the project existence since 2012). I can only hope that Metroid will recover.

Good job, Doc.

watch the next post be a further 20 days delay for metroid 2's 25th anniversary, someone's got to celebrate that!

I know its late to ask for features, but would it be possible to have an option to disable the mini map? it just being blank would be fine, as I would like to play it like I played the original on the gameboy, getting lost trying to find that last pesky Metroid!

In reply to the anonymous "watch the next post be a further 20 days delay for metroid 2's 25th anniversary" Watch nintendo release the NX with revisited classics including the colorizing of Metroid II: Return of Samus and other games that don't just get a graphical update but an engine overhaul ;~; I hope it doesn't happen because I love your work and am happy to see everyone is excited about something you have put so much time and effort into <3 Good luck on your release ^-^

Holy shit I can't believe it. I don't think any of us can thank you enough for the amount of time, passion and commitment that you've put into this game. Nintendo would never put this much love into a Metroid 2 Remake. I can remember first hearing about this years ago and following it ever since, thank you so much for all of it. Congratulations on the awesome work, here comes the final stretch!

David Sabe said...

Gaaak!!!! I just did a double take and fell out of my chair! Years have passed since I've discovered this project! This has to be the most excited I've been since the announcement of the original Metroid Prime on the GameCube! Great work Doc! You've made a bunch of Metroid fan boys/girls very happy this day! The thirtieth anniversary of Metroid, very clever indeed!

Been following this project for years and I am excited to see it completed. I never owned Metroid 2 as a kid and purposely held off from playing it all the way through because I wanted to wait for this souped up version instead.

I'm actually very impressed, what's up doc?

OH SNAP! I can't wait. I've played the demo, and you've done a great job with what I've seen. Eagerly awaiting the finished product.

Oh.... wow....

I have followed the progress of this project religiously for almost 7 years, but this is my first time commenting.

I cannot compliment you enough for your perseverance throughout the years. As a fellow game designer/programmer, I know how bogged down big projects can get when you start to realize just how much needs to be done to bring it to completion. I know many would have given up a long time ago on such a massive undertaking, so you have a LOT to be proud of.

Can't wait for the release! Congrats.

Hype!

dontcare said...

This is an unnecessarily creepy/weird response to a video game being released.

Nicolas mailloux said...

Please don't announce so far in advance! I check this website everyday because I want to make sure I get a copy immediately just in case you get a cease and desist from Nintendo. By publicly displaying a countdown to the release date you give them notice to make you pull it before anyone actually gets their hands on it.

O please just pull a Scott Cawthon and release it at least 15 days earlier!!!

Sebastian J said...

AM2R is an anomaly for sure, I don't think there is a metroid fan game that has ever released an official full version before dying off. Not only is AM2R the best metroid fan game, it is the best 2D Metroid Game, I think this game surpasses Zero Mission, Super Metroid, and Fusion. This game blew me away when I played every area. Progressively getting better. You could tell DR M64's game designing skills as a hull get better and better to an extremely impressive degree as each area become more atmospheric and challenging! This man needs to be paid, because he has done the metroid fan base a bigger service than anyone ever has including nintendo since after the release of prime trilogy. Congratulations for finally finishing the game doc :)

... and I really hope you find a way to payed for this, seriously this could be a 30$ game on steam if nintendo wouldn't sue :/

Paweł said...

(Just entered this website to check if something new appeared and...)

Man, this is the most polished and professional fan-made game that I have ever seen. Yes, it is better than Kotor 2 (don't blame me for this Sith Lords fans!).

Thank you very much for such a great entertainment.

Greetings from Poland.

Once this is finished if isn't too exhausted from AM2R, metroid confrontation would be nice to work on like adding different scenarios with different boss from other metroid games.

Alright guys, here it is the countdown for the showdown, just like new year eve, get your weapons (controllers) ready for the intense fight that we are gonna have, it is showtime!

Sir_Poeta said...

Es emocionante al mismo tiempo que impresionante, pensar en el final de esta espera. Yo llevo siguiendo am2r desde que comenzó en sus primeros bosquejos, cuando solo se subían fotos de mapas borradores y de pruebas. Ha pasado ya tanto tiempo desde eso, tenía solo 21 y ahora tengo 30 de edad... Como suele hacerlo Samus Arán, con una mezcla de miedo y respeto... he decidido ponerle a este tiempo de espera intermedio |UN REPORTE COMUN PERO LLENO DE EMOCIONES PARA NOSOTROS|

Hey Doc, long time follower (never commenter) here! I wanted to say thank you so much for this project! I enjoyed Metroid 2 and I think your remake can do it all sorts of justice.

Just dropped in to check on the blog posts of AM2R, got a functioning game pad for the game, suddenly there's a countdown for the full release. Glad I got the setup finished and the game now has a release date. Thanks for the notification, and I'll practice on my skills in the game the duration of the counter.

*Heavy Breathing*

David Correy said...

Before nintendo has a chance to shut this down You should release one more demo, or "leak" the game, i would hate to see something of this magnitude vanish so abruptly!!

Sebastian J said...

Because of all this hype for the completion of the game, I felt like going all the way back to the beginning of the blog and look at all the posts, and I came across that one post back in 2010 about naming AM2R something else, and I thought of a name myself. We may be way way too far into things to change the name, but if you decide to, maybe you'll consider my dumb idea? It sounds weird, but what about Metroid o2? It's sort of a shorter version of Metroid Zero Mission 2.

Neon Noble said...

After 10 years, I'm so excited to see this come to fruition! Thank you for your dedication, and I hope you will move on to even greater things!

Good job Doctor!!

I've been following this project since October of 2008, I still play some of the first demos released at that time and of course the Confrontation Game, which all of them are very solid in my opinion, even if they were just little samples of what you really wanted to develop and make it better.

I'm anxious about whats comming next.

Cheers, regards! :)

The only downside is that when the clock hits zero, the website explodes. If the game hasn't escaped since then, it'll need to reload it's save from before the final boss fight.

Rapea Sammakko said...

It sure deserves a name. Metroid Zero mission 2 (shortened or not) could work. Also Return of Return of Samus or Return of Metroid II or Metroid II: Return of Zero mission could be nice. However, maybe the name shouldn't mention zero mission since the game doesn't have zero suit Samus -- as far as I know.

If Nintendo gets mad and tries to do something about this they can fuck off. We've been wanting a awesome Metroid game since Prime 3, what they gave us was Other M and Federation force. Clearly they dont know what to do with the franchise anymore so its time for the fans to take over.

Oceanologue said...

Mertroid 2 is my favorite game ever, thank you so much for all the work you've done to finally share the passion we both have. I wont hesitate to give you the money you deserve in substitution of the theorical price !

Geothermal said...

people.. calm down about Nintendo. this project is almost 10 years old and Nintendo would have sent a cease and desist a long time ago. now i don't care about Nintendo and i'm not defending them(honestly i'm not even a Nintendo fan anymore). to Nintendo's credit they are allowing this game to be made and distributed (again i don't like Nintendo but they do have the power to shut this down). just saying be thankful that any of this is happening. i've been waiting for this remake ever since zero mission came out. let us not forget that the chrono trigger projects and remakes were shut down by Square Enix. let us be thankful that we are getting a metroid 2 remake and a metroid game that most have been wanting for a long time. i can still remember when i was a freshmen in high school and seeing this project for the first time, now i'm a junior in college and still just as excited as ever. now if nintendo did shut this down i would be very angry and upset, but they have never acted with a cease and desist when the demos in the past were distributed and i don't think they will now.

Oh man! That's so epic! I (like sooo many others) have been waiting for the conclusion of this project for quite some time, and I'm so glad it's done! As others have said, if there's a (legal and won't get you sued) way to monetarily support this project, I'm in.

I can't belive this moment is this close to happen!
I've been following you since I was 13, I think. Now I'm 24, and the hype I.S. R.E.A.L.
I'm so grateful you never renounced to this proyect... Just congratulations for getting this far, man! You are making history in the fan-made world :)

THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH DOC!

I've been following this for years. My anticipation quietly building as time went on. Then, to my dismay, the official Metroid franchise has stagnated and decayed more and more. Nintendo doesn't know how to properly handle such an amazing franchise.

But you do. Oh boy...do you ever!

I am more excited for this game release than I have been for almost anything else this entire year! I can't believe you have worked on it all this time, never giving up, and never leaving the project unfinished, as so many do. This is so very highly commendable, and it gives me immense respect for your sense of dedication and love for the Metroid franchise. As one man (backed by the appreciated efforts of beta testers and the like), you have shown more care, attention, and expertise for the Metroid franchise than Nintendo themselves. I can not praise your efforts enough. This is so, so fantastic and wonderful!

I absolutely can not wait for this. I saw the release date, and began to scream uncontrollably! Don't be surprised if I have more praise to heap onto your efforts, once I play the final game.

I've said it before, and I'll probably say it again. THANK YOU DOC FOR MAKING AM2R!!!!!!!

You have created a staple in history in probably millions of gamers out there.

This is it!

I've been following the project since 2009. Since then every month I check this blog for the updates. I can't describe how excited I am seeing that timer. But it's kinda bittersweet, because there won't be more updates. The story is over. But... Doc... Maybe, when you'll have your deserved rest after am2r... maybe... am3r? :D :D :D
With all that experience you gained from am2r it definitely will be something outstanding!
Anyway, Doc, thanks for your great work and for keeping us up to date during the whole process!
See you next mission! :D :D :D

Even though this countdown is *PROBABLY* going to decrease at the rate of One Day per Day, I keep checking every day, just incase there's suddenly a "No, wait, here it is early!" fakeout, or something. Probably impossible, but I can dream...

Glad to hear this game is almost at it's end for completion. I'm going to miss checking those updates every once a month, but that will be just a memory from now on. Good job, Doc. It's been one fun hell of a ride.

Doc, I have to hand it to you that this is going to be one of the best if not THE best Metroid games (even if unofficial) in the series.
Now since we are nearing completion, here are just a few small things to recap on before release. Take this idea with a note of drawing in that all Metroid games so far have done this in one way or another: item pickup/upgrade backtracking. Seeing as we have have Gravity Suit, Speed Booster, Power Bombs, and the Screw Attack, shouldn't there be a layer of exploring to find item pick ups in special designed locations or even branching paths for speed run and 100% completion purposes? Such a location could be the blocked elevator next to the GF Research Center. What's to say we couldn't use a bomb/power bomb to see that it's a screw attack blocked pathway that leads to a secret room on the surface maybe? (Maybe even make a game exclusive power up or upgrade for it? Like...a homing missile upgrade for the basic missiles? After all, this does take place after the prime trilogy in the timeline so homing missiles was a property that was introduced in those games for regular missiles.) Just some things to consider. I've seen many locations that could fit the "I'm hiding something" motive.

Next thing is just some small details to take note of.
1. Power Bomb refills. At this point from the last demo, there was no way to get a power bomb refill without going to a save station. Shouldn't enemies be able to drop those refills too?
2. Super Missile refills after defeating metroids. All the other bosses drop them so why not the metroids even if just a 1/10 chance it should still be noted especially if you are full on regular missiles.
3. Beam Upgrade blind spot. This may not have been noticed, but there is a spot in the beam fire that misses after getting the spazer/wide beam. This leaves holes in the firing waves after getting the wave beam and plasma beam. This happens because the ripples are following a pattern. Some shots will only connect at certain intervals and while this isn't a bad thing, it can make killing armored enemies just a bit tougher. I'm not sure exactly how Fusion and Zero Mission does it, but they make the beam waves hit in a a type of cone that covers that area of fire. Either way, if this can be fixed that would be nice, but it's not a mandatory thing at all.

Well that's all the little things I took note of just to make sure were brought to your attention just to give that extra coat of polish that might have been an oversight.
I can't wait for the game to release as I have been following ever since the 1.3 demo up till now.

Best of luck to the finish line with this good sir!

This game looks truly amazing. You have showed this series more love and care than Nintendo has in 10 years. Playing every Metroid game, I can't wait to add this to the list.

I hope down the line this can be converted to a gba rom (somehow) so I can play it on my 3ds or something. But right now I just can't wait to get my hands on it. Great job.

Man...I love you. You are a fighter...congratulations!

I'm prepared to refresh the hell out of your site when one hour remains. I do not trust Nintendo period and feel they'd try to snatch it up quickly. Within just a few hours. A finished product gives them all they need to sue, and they just might. So as I'll tell everyone - don't hesitate to get the game as soon as it appears. If there are some bugs, you may just have to work around them. I'm not holding my breath for any patches. Niche Gamer already promoted the game to the commercial project, which might be more harmful than helpful.
