Looks like a fun one!
Official Metroid titles are awesome, but too few and far between, so anything that fills the gap between them is a good thing, especially when they're of quality like this.
The only thing I'm iffy about is the mining/crafting system, but I'm open-minded so I'll give it a try before crying foul on it.

Yeah I'm interested as well, plus the devs said they are going to try to bring it to the Vita/PS4 later one as well.

Would love for them to do that. It looks like a good game, and the more people that get to play it the better.

Edit: Damn, only 200k for them to do a PS4/Vita version. Shouldn't be a problem once the kickstarter goes live.

buy this alone, that's not a FPS open world game something NEW and refreshing im sold.

developer of MIGHTY #9 said mighty # 9 need over 2 million to be on ps4 and ReVEN made it on ps4 with 200k??? what gives??

NINTENDO are you paying attention bring back 2D side scrolling METROID.

Metroid meets Biohazard.

I really hope this is Alpha because then it can only look better. I also hope for gamepad support. Additionally, the background music is nice.

Actually all the info about this game, including it's Kickstarter and stretch goals is here.

Eh, not into the zombies in every game. Would be better to just go for unique alien types. A game like this would also be suitable for HD Sprites and smoother animation. They should be using something like Spriter to animate. I've been waiting for devs to do more Metroid type games forever though, so good to see someone atleast catching on and attempting it.

I love 2D side scrollers
Action focused or platformer style.

The similarities never end.

Neither does people copying Nintendo's ideas.

So no Wii U version? N it's a total metroid clone...
Ac7iVe  +   171d ago
Totally should of read lol

Looks fun but a bit dated in its color pallet. Like it should be more vibrant but with the gritty setting maybe they didn't want it too colorful. Either way it looks fun, very much on the good side of retro.

looks like a blatant rip off...

It's more like ReVen is throwing a lot of nods to Metroid. It's obviously not trying to hide the fact that it's heavily inspired by it.
lilbroRx  +   170d ago
There is a point where something stops being nods and starts being a clone.

I've seen many clones with more originality than this as well.

A rip off game no thanks.
CELLA  +   170d ago
this tells dev that people want a new metroid game but nintendo do not care about the fans anymore some dev like Double Helix is making a clone metroid game for xbox one strider nintendo is a sad gamer console
Geobros  +   170d ago
To be honest i didn't like it very much, I hope they will make it better at the end.
R00bot  +   170d ago
The game looks good, but damn, it's a Metroid clone! That looks incredibly similar in every way. Hopefully they have some other gameplay elements that differentiate it some more from Metroid.
Not that it being similar to Metroid is a bad thing :)
