I have an idea for a fangame based off Metroid. All I really need is an Engine. The sprites I plan to use, I’m ripping from Metroid Zero Mission (VIA: Slowing down the game to about 1fps and screen capping them with a completely black background on VBA:CE(The true lazy way of doing it, but also an equally annoying way)).
I still got the same storyline:
[i]The Galatic Federation has put Samus on Trial for the destruction of thier research facility and the Planet SR388. Samus tries to explain her reasons for destroying the X parasite, but it doesn’t hold and she get’s stripped of her suit and is thrown in a holding cell.
Adam, the computer of her ship, plans an escape attempt and is successful. Samus soon learns that the federation is continuing thier research on creating an Omega metroid on other facilities. The Space Pirates make a move and attack one, and steal the Omega Metroid. So Samus now travels to the Space Pirate base on Planet ME453 to destroy the Omega metroid and any trace of space pirate research.[/i]
Right now I’m searching the net and e-mailing people for more decent Suitless Samus sprites (using her orange bathing suit from the Zero Mission endings:
I’m going to make an attempt to edit some myself, (Note: I’m not a good spriter guy, I’m more of a writer ).
Samus will have dialouge in this game too, which will be rather interesting. I have no clue if I’m going to do any cutscenes, but if I do plan to have real voices for Samus’s speech and some of the Feds. (This is subject to change, don’t hold me to this due to my lack of programming skills).
Characters such as Old Bird from the comics will also be in the game if I can find someone to draw the cinemas (and maybe a sprite).
I’ll post a demo soon as I get an engine ready.
