Project AM2R Creator Celebrates Metroid’s 35th With A New Game

Skippy The Robot

Yesterday marked the 35th anniversary of the original Metroid launch in Japan. This wasn’t the only Metroid anniversary, either. The fan-made overhaul of Metroid II: Return of Samus – better known as Project AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake) turned five years old.

To celebrate, the developer Milton “DoctorM64” Guasti – who now works at Moon Studios on games like Ori and the Will of the Wisps has released a small web browser game ‘Skippy the Robot’ – one of the many “untold stories” within the AM2R universe.

If you’re wondering what the connection to Metroid is here – this was essentially a mini-game in AM2R that’s now been turned into its own title. In the original version, Samus took remote control of the robot.

Here’s a bit from the developer about it:

“Skippy the Bot is a physics platformer, set in a dangerous abandoned factory. Learn how to hop like a real robot, escape the deadly factory and discover your true destiny. Made for the 5th anniversary of AM2R being released, and Metroid’s 35th.”

“Skippy was built in a couple weeks for this anniversary, using a framework I’m developing for another, bigger project. Hopefully, if everything goes well, I might be ready to share more details about it in the not so distant future. It’s going to be pretty unique.”

“If you like Skippy, let me know and I’ll do my best to add more content.”
