As you may have noticed if you look in the graphics section, I am working on a fan game. Actually, I’m doing the art and story, and someone else is programming it for me. I figured I’d go ahead and post the basic outline.
Metroid: Genesis is set many years before Zero Mission, on Zebes. It will follow the fall of the Chozo Empire and the rise of the Zebesian Pirates, as well as documenting how Samus became who she is. On the planet of Zebes, there are the native Chozo and Zebesian Pirates, and a small Human colony. The Pirates enact raids every now and again against the Chozo, who are protected by the Humans. The Chozo have very advanced technology, but none of it is directed towards warfare, so they rely on the Humans for survival against the vicious Pirates. Unfortunately, the Pirates amassed a huge force and completely destroyed the Human colony, leaving but a single survivor, six year old Samus Aran. The Chozo took her in and began training her to be their protector, for they knew it was only a matter of time before the Zebesian Pirates began taking down the Chozo Empire. By the time Samus came of age, the Chozo’s top Scientists had built the most advanced weapons system that Zebes had ever seen-the Power Suit. It was organically linked to the occupant, heavily armed, capable of surviving high temperatures, and most importantly, upgradable. The other Scientific advancement that the Chozo had made during these years was a special serum (read:Chozo blood infusion)that, when administered to a Human, boosted the strength, speed, and reaction time of the recipient ten-fold. Unfortunately, on the day of the final test of the Power Suit, the Chozo’s largest and most grand city of Chozodia was attacked by the Zebesian Pirates. Samus got a real “field test” that day, managing to escape the city with a few of the top Scientists. Upon arriving at the nearest city, they decided that it would be extinction for the Chozo to remain as they were, so they gathered up all of the willing citizens and abandoned the magnificent cities, making for the caves and hills. They began guerilla operations against the Pirates, Samus leading many of them. The Pirates captured and enslaved many of the Chozo citizens, and pilfered their technology. Now, it’s time for Samus to make them pay.
P.S.I used all of the official Metroid canon for this, so any mistakes you see, please point out.
