    The soundtrack is very minimalist - should work pretty well with the visuals!

    I'm more of a fan of hip tanaka personally just because of the original Metroid but the atmosphere from prime was great :)

    Wow! Very nice!
    A metroidvania with procedural maps is something that I think is difficult to do. Congratulations!

    Here's a new pic. We've got plants and trees working pretty well now, even with wind.
    Solid progress on the whole planet system.

    You can count on my money... It kind of looks like that No Mans Sky game, Josh. Phenomenal.

    Can you take off and fly to other planets like in No Mans Sky?

    That would be cool!

    Oh! I love how the hound casts a shadow. This does look really freaking cool!!
    You can also just barely make the mountains out in the background.
    That's a really nice touch.

    Thanks

    Do the clouds move and are there night and day cycles and weather changes?

    Thanks

    Clouds do move(and they are full 3d), and it looks sweet. We aren't going to do proper night day cycles because that would be a nightmare and wouldn't always look really good. We may do some types of shifts though. And yes definitely weather!

    So Crescent Moon, are you guys actually helping them make the game or just producing it? Or did they come up with the idea and hire you guys to make it for them? Just curious how that all works. You guys are awesome by the way!

    I love weather in games! And I can't help but think of that snow falling gently in the first Metroid Prime. Man, I can imagine this is going to be peaceful and exciting all at once!

    It depends on the game - in some cases I'm publishing a game where I do the PR work, advising the dev and things like that. With this game I'm designing and doing the production of it, and We're Five is doing the programming and animation(same exact way we worked together on Hammer Bomb) so its more like a partnering setup vs publishing.

    Holy ShcNickies..

    Man, This game looks FANtastamaZeballs...

    I am glad to see a return and re-attempt at the sci fi type setting! This is definitely something I will be watching closely and...pining over a bit to be honest lol.

    Please...PLEASE ffs..please make IPAD 4 viable and compatible for this game, a few good ones have slipped by me due to lack of support..I seem to keep being JUST under minimum requirements (Titan Quest for example :/). Even if the game is not optimized or runs a little laggy on IPAD 4..please at least do not restrict it from the list. Even if it doesn't run in an ideal way, I would still like to be able to at least download it from the app store.

    THanks!
