Default Five-Minute Metroid

I know I'm always saying how far back I started working on the things I post, but this one really goes back a bit. Journey back with me to two thousand and freaking four!

There were always two huge Metroid fans here at this site: me and IJD GAF. We used to talk about the series all the time. Inevitably, the idea of fivers came up, and we made plans to do a subsite and split the games between us. (Detailed plans! I was going to do the first two, retro fan that I am, and IJD wanted Prime and Fusion. We were going to collaborate on both Super and ZM. I can't say who would've done the others because at the time, there were no others!)

Neither of us ever managed to deliver -- I can't speak for IJD, but in my case I know that a big factor was the pressure to do justice to this amazing series. But the project has never left my back burner. A few years ago, excited about Samus Returns coming out, I finally began chipping away at the fiver of the first game. And now, in the year that Metroid Dread became an actual real thing that exists, I've finished it!

Only 17 years late, here's Five-Minute Metroid. Hope you like!

(By the way, there's one scene that only fans of the greatest Metroid fan comic, Maru Mari, will appreciate. That's also of '04 vintage...)
