Metroid Origins - A polished fan-game!

This looks pretty slick, even if it's not a full-size game. Coming from a person with the handle Hackmi over on the Metroid Construction Forums, their words on the subject were:
Hello, my name is Hackmi.
Metroid Origins is my project that I have worked on with the help of "Martyn," a programmer, various people for sprites but the most active members being myself and Ocin. This game has been developed in MEngine a Super Metroid Engine with refined Physics and a much more detailed and extensively animated Samus sprite set. MEngine was made by Physix/Ararrararara.
Less about me more about the game:
Metroid Origins was made possible once I was handed over some art from "Corey Annis" (the legend). We combined AM2R ai into MEngine and some other changes.
Setting:
Set on an alternate reality (yes I'm a lazy story writer) where Metroid 2 hasn't happened yet. A researcher ship was instructed to take data from the planet SR-388. Within 2 days all communication is lost. Samus Aran is sent in to see what has happened to them, if there is a threat she must wipe it out.
The rest goes like Metroid 2, except it'll take you about 20 minutes to complete XD, I attempted to make it possible with minimum powerups for experienced players.
The game features:
3 Areas. 2 boss variations, original music (soon trust me lol), brand new game mechanics, a refined engine made in Game Maker Studio, overdetailed environments and lots of custom artwork.

Credits:
Hackmi, Physix, Martyn, Ocin, Shmegleskimo, VR, IE, Altair, FierceFalcoN...list goes on to be updated later.

Looks pretty cool. The engine is very impressive.

It's shockingly clean looking and smooth. Be curious to see it fully finished.

Seems pretty good, level design is solid. A lot of indie games don't make areas feel organic but this does.
