    Metroid Dread is a 2.5D Metroid homebrew project made in DS Game Maker, and is currently under active development.

    As of now, everything is in a very early state. So early, I don't even have much to show. However, it is being developed constantly and should have some progress to show in the next few weeks.

    The Concept

    Much like the original concept of Metroid Dread, it will play like Metroid Fusion but with a 2.5D effect going on.

    The Story

    In Metroid Dread, Samus investigates a distress signal sent from a Federation-owned containment ship, which was hauling the last true Metroid. Apon arrival, the ship is trashed and the lights are out. As you play, the story unravels itself and you learn more of what really went down to send that distress signal.

    To-do List

    -Title Screen - 50% (Basic text-only title screen at the moment.)

    -Levels - 10% (Currently only test stages)

    -Samus/Player - 10% (Basic functions finished, just need to add animations and sprites)

    Why did you go public with this before it was finished?

    Like most real games do, I decided to do that to both help spread the word and get criticism on things about it as I develop. (So people get that just-right feel about the game)

    You will get legal criticism from Nintendo's lawyers.

    Well, I wish you and this project the best of luck. Hate criticizing people doing awesome things like this, but Nintendo has a long track record of shutting down fan projects that are based on their IP.

    Hopefully you live in China or Russia or someplace like that :P

    Unfortunately I don't. I've heard about Nintendo taking down AM2R and Pokemon Prism. I think it's best to not get too popular, or else Nintendo will notice you and strike you down.

    This reminds me about that time I read that someone wanted to make Twilight Princess HD after it was announced.
