Metroid - The X Factor

Samus Aran has just arrived on the Galactic Federation ship, and is promptly interrogated as to the incedent on the Biological Space Labs. She says that the X were a threat to the entire galaxy, that they could destroy it inside and out if they were left untouched. The Federation agrees to this after some persuasion, but Samus still is accounted for the destruction of the BSL Station. As a result, she is sent to Earth, where Space Pirates have already begun an X breeding program…

When Samus arrives at a space station of the pirates high above Earth, she plans to stop the program and obliterate the pirates from there, but she is forced to initiate the Self-Destruct sequence and crash the ship on Earth.

As she emerges from the destroyed ship, she finds a complex series of labs all over Europe and Asia. The X are being breeded in each and every one, but something was different about them…

As Samus traverses through the European Pirate labs, she discovers from computer data that the X had been enhanced by Phazon, and Earth had a large concentration of Phazon located in a large core in the Earth’s mantle. It seems that two of Samus’s worst enemies have been brought together…

Plus, I’m really a novice programmer, and don’t know much about it. If I could get someone mor experienced, that would be great.

Speed Booster: Duh

OK, update. Now, all we need is someone to do backgrounds. The engine is well underway, and we’ll have a demo up very soon, maybe w/out backgrounds though :frowning:

Hey peter12311, its me Dragon from Metroid Headquarters. :smiley:
If you need I can help with tile sets.

There’s only one comment on this I have, and that is that Earth is the planet the Federation stems from. It is anything but a “distant planet”. It is the cradle of Humanity, Terra Firma, the start of it all.

OK, cool! I’d love that! I’ll put you on the team list.
