Nuclear Dawn developers looking to Kickstart a Metroid-inspired sci-fi game

Dark Matter

InterWave Studios are looking to crowdfund the last few months of development on Dark Matter, a Metroid-esque sci-fi side-scrolling title.

Dark Matter is a 2.5D survival horror title where you make your way through an abandoned deep-space exploration vessel. InterWave claim that the focus is going to be on exploration, puzzle-solving and combat rather than jumping puzzles.

Health and ammunition will be scarce, and it’ll be up to players to craft it for themselves using scavenged resources rather than expecting it to drop out of downed enemies.

“We have taken Dark Matter as far as we could on our own,” say the developers. “This is not an arbitrary limit set by greedy management: it simply is the time when we run out of funds, and are forced to release prematurely, or shut down.”

Dark Matter deserves better than that.”

Check out the Kickstarter page and, if you agree, chuck them a few dollars.

Been looking for another Metroid-esque game since playing Shadow Complex. Backed!



Id highly recommend checking out The Swapper.



Actually all the article had to do is say Metroid-esque and my ears were tuned. It’s only been a short time but it looks like the Kickstarter is off to a slow start though.


Looked at The Swapper just now. Looks pretty amazing, must do some more research.
