I'm about to begin work on my own original game using the Unity engine, and I figured I should post about it here (because why not.) It's going to be a 3D first-person shooter based heavily around exploration and puzzle solving, very much in the spirit of the Metroid Prime series. However, it's going to have a very different artstyle that uses simple geometric forms and a general minimalist aesthetic. To avoid having to model and animate really complex stuff? Mebbe. To look cool? Definitely. I'll post pics of progress as stuff is finished in the game. See ya around!

So is it going to be more of a Super Metroid/Fusion 2D game, or FPS like the Metroid Prime ones?

Wow sounds great! I REALLY like the Metroid Prime Trilogy so this would be awesome for me. I look forward to the screenshots!!

Well here's a screenshot from about a week of progress on the game. The gun is going to have seven different beams, each of a different colour -- each combination of those three coloured rings you can see on the gun. And each beam (red, yellow, blue, orange, green, purple, and black) will have a different effect, much like the different beams in Metroid.

Nice, but it looks a little bit Minecraft-y. Are you going to change that?

Judging by the OP, I'd say it was probably intentional...


...but I could be wrong.

I assume the whole "looking like Star Fox on the Super Nintendo" thing is temporary until he gets some progress on enemies and stuff.

Did literally anyone read the first post.

Also it's always good practice to get the gameplay working first, then make everything look nice.

I read it as well, but I think it looks a little bit TOO simple.

Really liking the art style. Reminds me of Antichamber.

Reminds me a bit more of Portal than it does of a Metroid game, but it looks pretty cool. I'd definitely try it out.

Did somebody say Metroid Portal?

Also, sorry for the offtopic-ish post :P

Visually it is going to end up looking more like Portal, but the gameplay is going to be more like Metroid Prime.

Side note: Of course when I start a game in Unity, literally a week later Unreal Engine 4 and Valve's Source 2 engine both become free for all developers. :P

Well, atleast it wasn't a month. That way it (maybe?) isn't too late to switch, ifyou want to...



...wait, free Source Engine?? FREE SOURCE ENGINE!?!?!

Yeah, I haven't read a lot about Source2 but judging by a few allegedly leaked screen shots from a while ago and just pure assumption, it looks like it may just match up (and possibly surpass) to unreal 4 in graphics capabilities.

Also, This game looks nice so far! I never played through the prime games, but they always looked really interesting and I liked the ideas behind the game (exploration with some puzzles sprinkled through out) So this game definitely sounds interesting and like something I would play. Keep up the nice work!

Thanks :)

I'm beginning to agree that I should make the graphics a little less simple. But I'm not going to do anything with graphics until the gameplay is fleshed out more, so for a while it'll continue looking how it does now.
