I've been thinking about this for a while and now that my work on Metroid: Origins is finally done; I think this is what I want to do next.
Basically, I will be attempting to recreate Metroid, Metroid II: Return of Samus and Metroid: Fusion in ZC. I already have a (mostly) complete version of Super Metroid; so that's probably where I'll start working first. I also realize that some things (like Z3 scrolling movement) may not be possible so I'm willing to forgo that in favor of getting these released someday.
Additionally, I am in need of support in the form of people who might be able to find or rip sprites, music and sound effects. There are a large number of these which are not generally available on the internet and so far my efforts have run dry.
I may also create an entirely new Metroid game while working on this, if I get a get enough idea. Considering the need to map out everything thoroughly, completing any one of these is probably going to take a great deal of time.
Here's a list of some specific things I'd like to get.
- 1 x 2 Zero Suit Samus sprites, a la Metroid: Zero Mission. I won't be doing that game, though I feel having these sprite would be good for the future.
- Improved 1 x 2 Samus sprites for Power Suit, Varia Suit and Gravity Suit.
- Golden Chozo statue sprites- the only ones generally available are for the normal Torizo, which aren't easily translated into the golden form.
- Tiles for Ridley statue at entrance to that section of Norfair. As far as I can tell, these don't exist at Spriter's Resource.
Once I have a playable demo for any of these, I'll release it.
