Hello and welcome and please enjoy the fine video contained behind this link. This is the official starting point for Metroidvania.com!
This site is currently a work in progress and then some. But it’s absolutely worth doing now that half the indie games currently in development draw on this style of game. After years of lurking in wait, it’s finally exploding into its proper dominance. I’m so proud.
I’m still putting together the chronological gallery of relevant and related games, after which there’ll be a ton of actual articles to write to chart the development of the genre. Bear with me, please.
