We love a good Metroidvania game here at Nintendo Life. While we've got Metroid: Samus Returns to look forward to on 3DS and the lovely Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition coming up on Switch, we could always use one more quality Metroidvania style game, right?
The lovely folks at Andromeda Project aim to make our dreams come true with Necrocosmos - There is no god up here, which is currently awaiting funding on Kickstarter. The game is planned to be a full Metroidvania style with 8-bit aesthetics and inspired by the great classics of the genre. Combining story and playability in an open galaxy universe, this promises to be a hardcore experience that the player can only overcome by combining the DNA of your enemies in the DNA-Gun.
It's all shaping up to look like a winner, so it might be worth backing this one. Unlike some Kickstarter campaigns, there is no stretch goal required for the Nintendo Switch version. At the time of writing the project is almost halfway funded with 14 days left to reach it's modest €45,000 goal.
Let us know if you plan to back Necrocosmos with a comment below.
Glad to see another 8-bit platformer kickstarter project is coming to Switch.
Looks like another dose of Metroidvania coming over to the Switch
Looks good! Hope we see a physical version too.
Getting a bit bored of all the Metroidvania style games, how many versions do you need of the same game?
@Bunkerneath Was thinking the same. Its like all 8bit/16bit era games were Metroid games.
Most certainly had my fill. Looking for more diversity.
It honestly looks like they'll frustrate you to no end with the bullet-hell style combat.
As others have said, enough with the metroidvanias. How about the classic sidescrolling co-op brawler? Nothing today matches with Spiderman Maximum Carnage, Turtles In Time, Streets of Rage, or Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.
@BraveFencerZan Agreed. I'd love to see that 16 bit X-Men brawler on Switch.
@Bunkerneath Was just about to say the same thing. The whole 8 and 16 bit aesthetic is getting old as well (pun very much intended)
Looks pretty sweet.
I love Metroid but I don't know about this game. Need to see more, the graphics are a bit simple. Would prefer higher quality.
Meh to kick starters
Music is excellent
the 8bit/16bit thing has been done to death now. How about giving us something the Switch is capable of for a change? Or just a more ambitious/different art style maybe?
Nice but I really really really hope Metroid: Samus Returns comes to Switch...
@PlayedNSlayed Yeah I agree. Even though Zelda looks great I don't really feel there is a graphical showpiece for the Switch yet showing what it's truly capable of...
Nice!! Been watching this project and it's a mix of schmup and platformer/Metroidvania. Really shaping up to be great. Now that it's coming to Switch I'm taking the dive in!
Personally, I'm getting bored with the abundance of games for Switch that look like they belong on a DS/3DS. If a game is great, then awesome, but I would like to see a few developers actually PUSH the system and treat it like a hybrid console/portable instead of a roided out Super Game Boy! It isn't a weak system, not by any stretch!
I'm a bit gunshy on kickstarting games on kickstarter at the moment. All 4 games I've done kickstarts on have yet to release. 2 of them are Metroidvania's (Reven, Timespinner), and then Bloodstained and Camelot unchained. With those being done anywhere from 2013 to 2015. Until I see some results from my games probably going to shy away from kickstarting anymore of these, however hopefully it does well because I love some good metroidvania's. While I think I'll be getting Timespinner this year, Reven kickstarter has been a mess and I really question whether it will finally come out or not when the people that were making it took the kickstarter money and made another game first that was a shooter that I wasn't interested in, however they insist it's still not done. If that one ever comes out it's going to be at least next year or beyond putting it at least 4 years out from the kickstarter campaign.
Interesting. Of note, Re: Legend made its Switch Goal so is coming at last!!!
Looks forgettable and like others I'm getting tired of all the metroidvania games. It feels like as of lately super metroid is the only game worth being "inspired" by even though there are thousands of other games
Hey, hope it succeeds and gets much more awesome, but I'm a huge 2D Metroid fan and this isn't doing much for me at the moment.
I would rather kick it in the teeth, had my fill.
I'd rather an old game of Metroid or a Castlevania rather than another modern 8 bit inspired by game... plus this trailer has very little to go off. Not sure about this one.
Any big games coming yet? I'm waiting somewhat patiently but finding it harder and harder now!
This looks sweet, I love the melding of genres.
Looks okay, but that's all.
