3d Links Awakening Quadrant update 40

Quadrant C5 is complete

A little more info about the Metroid Project,
As you can probably tell, I am a Zelda fan. I am also a Mario fan, a Super Smash Bros fan, a Halo fan, a Metal Gear Solid fan, etc, etc. But above all else, I am a Metroid fan. The very first game I ever played was Super Metroid, and it remains as one of my favorite games of all time. (Right next to Link's Awakening, incidentally)

I have a very strong desire to work on a Metroid game (and I actually have twice in the past, but I'm not allowed to talk about those)
There is a problem however, Link's Awakening was released on the Gameboy and Gameboy color, neither of those games are on sale from Nintendo, only through eBay, and Game Haven.

They are not playable on the DS or the DSi, they cannot be downloaded on the VC, so me remaking them has absolutely zero effect on Nintendo's profits, meaning they are less likely to give me the C&D order.

Metroid and Super Metroid however, are readily available on the VC, bring Nintendo lots of eMonies, trying to remake either of those would be very risky. Metroid II: Return of Samus is in the same boat as Link''s Awakening, however there are at least two remakes of it in the works (And it's my second least favorite Metroid game (I Hate Fusion) mostly due to the lack of a map and the fact that I can't find my cart) so remaking that wouldn't be as special.

So what game will the Metroid Project (hereafter referred to as Project Helix) be? Well, you will just have to wait, right now I am drawing up concept art and the beginnings of an area, but this is not a project I can do alone, I will need programmers and animators and musicians, etc. When I am ready to begin actual production of Helix, when I am ready to seek partners to help me create this, I will post a 'wanted' ad on this site that will list the requirements and specifications of this game and an invitation for people who wish to help with the programming and animating, etc, to step up and apply, around this time I will also be opening up a MithosK-Games forum to allow open discussion of the two ongoing projects.

Until the next update,
Lord MithosKuu Amadeus Mandylion

I am not scrapping Zelda, it will continue to be updated at its normal pace (i.e., every time I am able to complete a quadrant)

What the Hell? I love Metroid 1-3, too. A Remake is one of my Dreams. Metroid forever!!
