My Metroidvania - 20/9/18
DEMO: gamepad recommended
www.mediafire.com/file/gam0du6…

EDIT: "Mature content" filter is screwing up again, but I think you all know my game doesn't have anything like that in....yet ;)

Also this animation gets cancelled by pretty much everything like moving or shooting, so it can't interrupt the gameplay.

So yeah, this project is well over two years old now...I'm pretty proud of myself for making something like this, and I hope you all still enjoy seeing my game's progress.

Even if I'll be going back to school very soon to start my a levels (Maths, Physics and Chemistry) the teachers, tutors and stuff have all reassured me that I still have plenty of time to work on my game. I could even get a qualification out of it maybe in the form of an "Extended Project" too!!!

Wish me luck! =)

Trying to make a new title screen...
It's been very hard work so far, but I'm hoping it'll pay off eventually...

The Hydrodash upgrade
This ability is essentially the screw attack and space jump but strictly for underwater. But you get this ability much earlier than the actual screw attack and space jump equivalents in my game.

The space station's Operating System
Here are the new and improved NAV rooms, which guide the player throughout the game if players choose to use them.

OK so it seems Sega has caught themselves in a tiny bit of controversy in regards to the recent sonic forces footage (or really the whole of the post-2010 era for that matter) with how people are tired of green hill zone and classic sonic...not to mention the "shitty music" and "awful art style" which I agree aren't very good to people like us. It seems more and more people are slowly, but surely, getting sick of sega's tricks and nostalgia pandering and I'm here to present a potential solution.

So you have classic sonic getting mania and modern fans are getting forces...but aren't we forgetting a certain group of fans? That's right, adventure fans (people who mainly like the adventure games over everything else). People such as I who very much to this day unironically like sonic adventure 1 and 2 are for some reason getting the cold shoulder in regards to content aimed at their sort of audience. Where's the multiple playable characters? Where's the new stories that aren't crammed full of jokes? Where's the balance of platforming and speed found in the adventure games? Where's the awesome rock themed music that many loved in past games? Why is this all gone?

While sega has no responsibility to cater to the demands of people like us, if they for some reason want to satisfy as many fans as possible, I think they should do the following...

1. Give classic fans more mania-esque titles

2. Give modern fans more games like sonic colors

3. Give adventure fans something that plays like sonic adventure (and wasn't rushed to death like 06)that has an "edgy" story, humans, multiple playable characters, a chao garden and some sense of coolness that we feel is sorely lacking in today's titles.

While there's certainly a lot more currently un-catered types of fans than just adventure fans, I'm pretty sure that deep down they'd love another sonic game that at least has some of the core elements of an adventure game. Multiple playable characters and a more series storyline are things that the fanbase has wanted for some time now and I think it'd be cool of sega to try pleasing them (even if other fans have already labeled them as "insatiable").

I know I'm asking for a lot (an entire game is nothing to just brush off) and that we may not necessarily be the majority of the fan base (though tbh I don't really know for sure)...but if I can be honest, the reason why I've not bought any sonic game since generations is due to the lack of things I mentioned previously and I felt the need to vent my frustrations that sega and other fans just don't seem to understand.

I don't know if this will make any difference but I just wanted to try shouting into the void to see if it'll bring about some good. That's all for now, bye!

Just wanted to say I'm digging the vibes your game art gives off.
Don't lose motivation or momentum!  Picking up where you left off is really tricky <3

Yeah it sure is...but I think I can keep going for now, though progress will obviously slow down once school for me begins at the start of October.

That's a pretty awesome game, my friend. I love Metroidvania style games, and playing off the idea from Metroid Fusion is a great idea. Do you publish to Gamejolt? That's where I put my games.

Would be pretty awesome. I'm putting more of the art for my game here as I go. Just uploaded an egg bursting before answering this.
