Ghost Song is the Metroid we need and deserve


#21

Dat gameplay


#22

I’ve been following this kickstarter for a while and talked to the developer he deserves every penny.

@Boel @furrycurry @fatboy Thanks for the support :tup: Rare fatboy on GD sighting! Hope you’re feeling better, you better be at evo next year.

It’s kind of funny that there have been so many metroidvanias in the past few years but this is the first one in recent memory at least that actually resembles Super Metroid. I totally get the “why play this over Super Metroid” argument, but the answer to that is…because it has a badass art style and it’s new. I feel the same way about SF4 every time I try to learn it I keep thinking “ehh it’s an okay game…but I feel like playing ST instead”…which is why I have a tremendous backlog :rofl:


#24

Becoming an NPC or Miniboss… Sounds awesome!


#25

Looks pretty neat. I want it.


#26

Yea I’ll give it an honest shot when it’s finished, here’s hoping it is a lot more “New” then it looks to be you know?


#27

I hope this gets funding for Wii U. Looks like it might be pretty fun.


#28

game looks really cool.


#29

This would be better if I did not think it was a re-skinned Metroid. Metrovania style adventure games are awesome but this is too similar to Super Metroid.

Read these posts from the creator:

Now you guys can shutup =P.


#31

That doesn’t do anything to make me less worried, if he had done the pitch with those ideas int he first palce I’d be going in.


#32

Kickstarter page updated with 7 minute video, if you like what you see spread the word and get others to donate!


#33

I thought so too with Shadowrun Returns, then I get a garbage tablet rpg that can be beaten by a monkey.

No thanks, I won’t invest into kickstarters anymore until I finally see a decent game emerge from them.


#34

^I feel like you don’t understand how Kickstarter works.

Edit: New footage still from the pre alpha Metroid-like flash game stage but I like the bug tunnels idea.


#36

What?


#37

65 Hours left it needs $1500 for overtime mode c’mon give it that spirit bomb!


#38

Overtime mode is in, doubt it’ll make enough for a Wii U version though.


#39

The game kinda reminds of Mega Man if he grew up. Can’t wait to play it.

I saw your post in the Mighty No. 9 thread, if it weren’t for that post I never knew about this game.
Normally I’m not to keen on the whole Kickstarter thing, but the world lacks games like this and 2d games in general.
(Dragon’s Crown and Guacamelee reminded me how much I miss 2d gaming)
So I did my part and backed this with $15
