    Default "Life on Mars: Genesis", a Metroidvania for the Sega Genesis / Megadrive

    Life on Mars: Genesis is a "MetroidVania", (a mix between Metroid and Castlevania - Symphony of the night) where you can freely explore the map, acquire new skills (double jump, run...) that will help you explore even more areas of the map, acquire and upgrade new weapons (grenade launcher, flamethrower), increase the capacity of your shield (life) and your power generator (stamina), etc.

    This game is a reimagined adaptation of our previously released "Life on Mars" for the MSX2 computer and "Life on Mars Remake" for PC on Steam.
    The setting is a bit "Aliens" and other classic 80's sci-fi movies:

    A scientific colony was established on Mars and frozen life was found in the Martian ice, a bacterium.
    Shortly afterward, Earth lost contact with the colony.
    9 months later, a ship from Earth finally reached Mars and a technician was sent to repair the communications array.
    Playing as said technician, you must find out what happened to the colony.

    A pre-order period will begin next month (August).
    The estimated release/shipping date is November/December of this year (2022).

    I think it's because you need a certain number of posts before you can create threads.

    This looks quite good. The closest thing to Super Metroid on the Mega Drive, I guess.

    Just my personal opinion, but I think sometimes such games are ruined by relying on text too much. I think keeping text to a minimum results in a nicer experience. When you see creepy things in Metroid, you don't see Samus thinking or saying "WTF is happening here?". It would just add nothing to the scene and kill the mood. Just my two cents.
