Morphite - 3D Planet Exploration FPS Action Adventure

Hello all,
This is a little early but I am very excited about this one since I'm a big Metroid fan.

Morphite is a procedural 3d metroidvania.

We plan on having 8 planets as part of the main storyline, and possibly millions of other planets to explore. You will be able to save enough data for around 500 planets - I think.

There will be various weapons/powerups
You will be searching for exotic creatures to catalog and sell, as well as defeating bosses and finding useful minerals to upgrade your weapons.

I've attached some screenshots.

I'll post more as it gets going!

-Josh

Please be compatible!

This..looks...absolutemente! Amazballs...but..please...please tell me this will still be compatible on IPAD 4?! 3 or 4 games I got really excited to play lately ended up being uncompatable with my IPAD 4. =(
And..they weren't even that huge a deal graphically, all these games would have needed to implement was a graphics setting and I could have been a customer. Please allow for IPAD 4 compatibility, even if it's in the form of a graphics scaling.

Sincerely,
Very interested.

I absolutely love that art style. Beautiful. And I love a Metroidvania - though I don't get how it could be procedurally generated. Surely the whole point of a Metroidvania is that you revisit areas with new powers and open up other parts of the world?

However, I have huge faith in you CM guys! Looking forward to it.

Yep - we have an interesting system devised for the procedural thing to work with power ups.

Don't you know Chasm? It's 2d, though.
