Teaser trailer is here!

 

 

What is it?

Star Fox 2: HD is an ongoing work to remaster and add new features to the SNES Star Fox, the unreleased Star Fox 2 and potentially Star Fox 64.

Currently, this project is being worked on by only one person. However, development positions may open in the future to help work on the game. As only simple scripting knowledge is known, this means there will definitely be spots open for CSharp and JS developers in the future.

The game was originally developed under the working title of 'Electric Boogaloo' (yes, i understand where that comes from) however the name was changed for obvious reasons after the development became a serious project. The game is also going to have its own soundtrack, composed of the SNES Star Fox 1 and 2 soundtrack re-mastered.

Unlike the SNES Star Fox 1, which had a linear 'corridor' mode for most of its levels, Star Fox 2: HD will be more open, allowing you to fly around and explore, maybe find an easter egg or two.

F.A.Q

Nothing has been asked yet, however I've brewed up a couple you might wonder.

"What game engine does this use?"
-The game uses Unity 5.

"What if you get a cease and desist or anything like that?"
-meh.

"How is the soundtrack going to be done?"
-The Star Fox .spc songs are going to exported from the .sfc as MIDI, then played through a custom soundfont after instrument and channel tweaks are done.

"How can I contribute to the development of the game?"
-You can find me on discord (Revolver Ocelot#6732) and then you can explain how you want to help the game.

I just moved this thread to the right section.
Nice progress, and one tip: If you want to make the FAQ section look nicer, you can use Shift + Enter, so that sentences will stick together closer.

Edit:
Okay, what is that?

Wow! This is amazing. From what I currently see, this will be a promising fan-made "remaster" of the original Starfox trilogy. Kudos to you! Can't wait to see it develop, since often times, fans do what Nintendon't. I don't know how to program, but count me in for any digital design help, such as artwork.

Interesting. I myself have had a similar idea, but with a completely flat shaded aesthetic similar to the renders Issac McCloud posted not too long ago (albeit running at a noticably higher resolution and framerate compared to the SNES games) and also utilizing the limited SPC-based 6-8 channel sound design of those games.  I haven't seen too many people truly try to recreate the game engine of the EAD Star Fox trilogy, though I'd imagine that's not a particularly easy task to pull off.

Yeah, thanks. I've already asked for permission to use his music but he won't respond.

If he responds, do not expect him to give you permission to use his music. I asked if I could help make his project files into SPCs and he declined. He's pretty protective of his work and I'd recommend others to respect that.

Yeah, I've encountered him many times before. He isn't the nicest person in the world, either.

 

EDIT: Wait a minute, Patch93? Damn son.

I love your Roland SC-55 soundfont.

Patch93

Yeah, it's me. I haven't really updated that soundfont in a long time because I haven't been able to get the electric guitar presets to sound right. The original SC-55 module had a pretty complex synth engine that cannot be replicated through soundfonts, and you can tell this because Doom's soundtrack took advantage of low pass filter frequencies through note velocities. At this point I think it would be best if someone added SC-55, SC-88 and SC-88 Pro emulation for MUNT, but we all know pissy Roland would get about people trying to do that. But of course that is completely off topic, so I do apologize for derailing the thread.

Well, good luck on that project!

I would have personnaly wait a bit longer before uploading a "teaser", because yours doesn't truly show a lot ^^
I have a few questions though:
 -Have you already worked on games (fan, amateur, indie, whatever) in the past? :)
 -So far, what is programmed? I mean, what can the Arwing do? Fly, shoot, bombs?
 -That's some quite good looking water you have here, could we see it in a video in the near future ? :p

Anyway! It can be a quite fun game to play, so good luck! I have yet to play Starfox 2 (as well as properly play Starfox 1), but from what I saw, the prototype was pretty cool.

Hey, you have actual pre-alpha gameplay, thats more than what most fan games show.

I'd be really cool if you could keep with the SNES flat shaded aesthetic but update it to look extra smoov and shiny. Maybe expand on the aesthetic a little, idk. There's a lot that can be done depending on how far you want to go from remake to reimagining.

Either way, I am proud of my obsessive and embarassing knowledge of obscure and casual Star Fox lore, so if you want/need a writer type person or just a consultant, do let me know!

In that regard, I think it would be best if there was an option for different screen resolutions. For example, you could go down closer to the SNES's native resolution of 256x224 making the graphics closer to how they were on the SNES, while higher resolutions would give you something more closer to something like Sky Rogue or the Retro Arwing in SFZ.

1: I've worked on a couple before, but none on as large a scale as this.

2: So far, simple AI has been programmed. (you can see this with the Great Commander placeholder flying over the Arwing in the teaser) There is BGM that plays in the current (only) level so far. Arwings can only fly right now, barrel rolling is slow, but possible. Same with U-turns and somersaults. No weapons or bombs have been programmed, in fact, I need somebody who has the ability to do so for this.

3: I will definitely upload the water in a video in the future.

You should definitely play Star Fox 2 some time. It's a great game.

Also, I realised the discord server link expired. Here's a new one!

1 : OK! :) Any examples? ^^

2 : OK. Programming weapons shouldn't be too complicated, you can probably find a lot of tutorials about Unity on the internet ;)

Good luck for the development!

Is it me or the sky doesn't properly loop?
In the top-left corner, it doesn't look really smooth...

      / (_)\_( )_\ FOX BECOMES ADDICTED TO CHEESE: EPIC NEW VERSION EDITION
      ) /\/ _ (o)( The Shining Achievement of All FoxKind
      \ \_) (o) /
      \/_/
      A desolate planet of pollution and waste. Venom's Voleech City was ugly as rotting paste. As I say all of this, Fox had to make haste. He was scurrying behind buildings and blasting at bots, bursting their circuits as they screamed out 'bleeps' and 'blots'. Made of tech, they were, they had no blood clots. Fox's boots continued to make more trit-trots, as he fox-trotted his way into the Death Weapon Factory. Robot armies followed him inside, could it be that Fox had nowhere to hide?
      "I need to destroy these weapons so that Andross won't use them against Corneria" Fox thought to himself. He isolated each in a gravitational field, then set a timer on each one, eventually they'd come out well done. Sooner or later, they bursted into flames, sending scrap metal everywhere, killing the robot armies who had no names. Then Fox got an incoming message from Falco, not Slippy. Man oh man, is that bird ever lippy.
      "Andross is here, he's bringing death and fear. Get your ass to Corneria, hurry right now! We can't make cheese, they've slaughtered every last cow! We've even got less freedom here than on Venom, I'm just thanking God that my jacket is Denim" said Falco. Fox jumped in his ship as soon as he could, then set off for Corneria, to restore peace and brotherhood. When he arrived on his homeworld he was not very pleased. The cities were in shambles, even Admiral Z's house of cheese. Cheese had been banned under Emperor Andross's new law. No one could have cheese throughout the land, not cubed nor sliced, not even one strand. Children were crying and wailing in pain, where was Fox when they needed him? No cheese is quite lame! The giant block of cheese atop Admiral Z's had melted down, far down to the ground, trapping Cornerians...wait isn't the earth round?
      "Cheese can't possibly be that frickin' sticky. Something's rotten in Wisconsin, and this ain't no job for Slippy" thought Fox. Fox got an incoming message from Wolf, who was flying overhead. He didn't like Fox, he wanted Fox to be dead.
      "Hey Fox it's the Wolfster, your people are worthless eaters. We added adhesive properties to the cheese, so now they're all stuck. You'll never defeat Andross cuz face it Fox, you suck. Cheese is for losers so kiss your planet goodbye. All you animals must bow before Andross and die" said Wolf. Sick of all the distress and war, Fox couldn't take it, no not anymore. Fox dropped his cell phone, and began losing his mind. He couldn't take what was happening, even so, saving planets was his 9 to 5 grind. But when all seemed lost, Peppy flew by, dispatching himself with a parachute to the ground, sniffing out trouble better than a foxhound. He got out a long stick of measuring tape, and began charting, graphing, and plotting the melted cheese landscape. Finally he knew just what the Star Fox team should do.
      "Ah, dang, I'm gettin' carless. Fox, Gimme a spare Lylation Nova Bomb" ordered Peppy. Fox pulled a Nova Bomb out of his pocket and placed it in Peppy's hands.
      "Ah, that be the one. Now watch and learn Fox mah boy" said Peppy. Peppy began strapping on giant mecha-gloves to prevent his hands from getting stuck, then started lifting up the cheese straight off the earth. That took strength, power, and mirth? He rolled up the cheese against the nova bomb, then hastened to a cannon, firing it at Andross's ships one by one. If they wouldn't let Cornerians have cheese then let them have what they took. In the form of planetary defense prepared by a master cook.
      "DO A CHEESE ROLL!" ordered Peppy.
      "Man, where'd you learn to do that?" asked Fox in amazement.
      "I learned it at the Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake. It's an event near Gloucester, England, where they roll cheese down hills. Now if you don't mind, it's time to defeat the emperor's evil shills!" said Peppy, rolling up the nova bomb in all of the melted sticky cheese from the demolition of Admiral Z's restaurant. Fox began rolling up a nova bomb in cheese, and freed all the citizens who had been stuck. Then Fox and Peppy loaded up the cannons, taking out each one of Andross's minions. Eventually appeared Andross himself, pissed off as hell, like a wargod-elf. Fox jumped into his Arwing, and prepared to take him down. He wasn't gonna lose his beloved planet to that Planet of the Apes reject CLOWN!
      "You will die, just like your father" declared Andross.
      "Not over my dead body!" said Fox.
      "You do realize the irony and foolishness of your response, do you not, Fox?" thundered Andross.
      "I realize that you're going down!" said Fox.
      "If I'm going down, then I'm taking you with me" said Andross.
      "NEVER!" yelled Fox.
      "It is foolish to come against me. You know that I control the galaxy!" said Andross.
      "The universe is like waaaay bigger than that" replied Fox. "TASTE CHEESE YOU FREAAAAK!" yelled Fox, firing a cheese laced nova bomb into Andross's mouth. Andross's ship exploded and Andross parachuted himself to the ground, along with his robot buddy and number one confidante and fan...Fantron.
      "I have a splitting headache," said Andross. "Why must I always lose?" he wailed, pounding the earth with his fist.
      "Master, perhaps next time you should attack your own planet, Venom. Then get everyone to think Fox was responsible. Maybe then your people would finally support you and your unquenchable thirst for war" said Fantron.
      "Not a bad idea" said Andross in his evil robotic-like Darth Vader-esque voice. But then Fox cornered Andross, plasma blaster in tow. He looked quite proud, he had put on a good show!
      "Correction Emperor. That's a very BAD idea!" said Fox. "You're going to Corneria War Crimes Prison for at least thirteen years, you won't get any cheese, just cheap Norwegian beers!" Andross looked confused.
      Later that day...
      Fox, Falco, Peppy and Slippy, watching cheese burn in a restaurant founded by a hippie!
      "Yay, Fox!" clapped Falco, Peppy, and Slippy, as a giant block of cheese slowly melted under a candle's flames. They all clinged wine glasses together.
      "LONG LIVE TEAM STAR FOX. AND LONG LIVE THE GLORIOUS GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING...CHEESE!" they all yelled. The three men cheered and shared a group hug, then devoured more cheese and dived into an oversized apple cider jug. Outside the room was the beautiful Krystal, aspy. She had seen enough, Fox just wasn't her guy.
      Note: I took the words "THE END" and made them be out of cheese. Then I rolled them up in an awesomely tasty text sandwich.

      Hello everyone. ^^
      My name is MidnightMike, and I'm here to show you my tribute animation to the original Star Fox, which celebrated it's 25th anniversary this past March.
      I know it might not be as good as you were hoping, but I had fun making it. Here it is. :)
