Welcome to the home page of Metroid Remix, a fan made re-imagining of Nintendo's original Metroid game.

It’s been a long time.
Metroid Remix first began back in 2011, four years ago. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long to me. The first demo was posted shortly that year, in May. About a year and a half later, we released Demo 2, and then the project went on a hiatus. I became very busy with University work along with having several other real life complications, and my communication with the team fell to nearly nothing. This project fell to the wayside, and after a long period of inactivity, a part of me became okay with that. Demo 2 was rather extensive, for a demo, and showed off our hard work to that point.

And so time marched on…

It’s been nearly three years since then, and a lot has happened in my life. I always remembered this project with Kuro though. For a time, it seemed that it would just be one more unfinished project I had once worked on. But that’s not good enough anymore.

So what’s changed?

Simply put, the community and feedback about the game that still exists now. The forums may be dead, but there have been multiple let’s plays of the game, commentaries, and occasional posts always asking about the status of the project. While it’s true I neglected the community for a long time, it’s inspiring to see people are still enjoying this game. Kuro and I have gotten back into contact with one another, and have decided together that we want to resume work on Metroid Remix in order to finish this project fully.

What does that mean for the project?

Right now, we’re both working on tweaking portions of the project from Demo 2. At the moment, the biggest piece of work is porting the source code over to Game Maker Studio, as Game Maker 8.1 has been deprecated with several grievous errors that make work very difficult. This porting process, unfortunately, is rather extensive. Progress on it has been decent, however. In the meantime, Kuro is working on updating and refreshing various graphics from Demo 2 for the full game.
After the porting process is mostly complete, we will begin work on full level development for the remainder of the game, along with engine modifications and new features. There’s a lot in the works, and I’ll be updating the website as they happen.

Programming-wise, progress will most likely be at its quickest pace until the end of August, when my final University semester begins. University work always takes precedence over my hobby projects, so things will most likely slow greatly after that. However, with any luck Kuro can finish a good amount of the raw level building during this time, even if I’m not nearly as active.
In January, I will have graduated from University and will have a similar work schedule to the one I have right now, so the pace should pick back up again.

I can’t make predictions much further out than that, as doing so is risky, but needless to say, there’ll be updates as time progresses.

Metroid Remix is back, and for good this time.

Hey all, I know things have been rather quiet since our last update, and to be truthful the project has been put on the backburner for a bit. That being said, the Nintendo Community Fangame Convention is on this week, and like last year, Metroid Remix has been submitted.


To those visiting from NCFC:
Thank you for visiting! You may find out more about Remix through the about, screenshots, and video pages. The demos are available to download as well, and I would highly recommend playing the second demo over the first. Many new things were added, and the play time is significantly longer. All controls and necessary information are included in the demo pages.

Metroid Headquarters Marathon
Metroid Headquarters, which is one of our affiliates, will be running a "Metroid Marathon" to raise donations for Child's Play. Child's Play is a charity organization that helps children that are in hospitals or otherwise unable to have a normal childhood. The charity's website is located at http://www.childsplaycharity.org/, for those who are interested in more information.

As for the marathon itself, it will take place over multiple days. Staff members of Metroid Headquarters will play and livestream every single game of the Metroid series, from start to finish. The theme of this year's marathon is speed running, which stands in comparison to last year's 100% item collection (and mandatory hard mode.) Nonetheless, it will certainly be worth watching.

And did I mention that I'm a staff member of MHQ?

Of course, along with raising funds for Child's Play, the event marks the 8th year anniversary of Metroid Headquarters as a website. It's a great achievement, and one that not many websites see.

On an unrelated note, I've updated the website layout to fix an annoying problem with IE 7, along with making some other tweaks here and there. The sidebar is now able to have an unlimited height, which I'll use to fill with various things (such as the MHQthon banner you see there now.)

Site Update
I've made some changes to the site, notably pushing the twitter feed to a new sidebar to the right, which also contains an articles feed. The release of Demo 2 got me to thinking about everything that has essentially led to the success of Metroid Remix, and I've written a retrospective looking back at some of my developer history. I quite liked writing the article, so more may be coming in the future.
