That helmet tho I think that one is spot on with kinda like a classic feel to it.

If I'm not mistaken, in the canon Samus can form the suit around her with her mind. In that case it's not necessary to make the suit industrial-looking (or the arm cannon that big) or have the paint stripes mentioned above, since Samus doesn't have to go buy parts to weld in place to upgrade anything. Also those glow plugs (bolts?) look bad, I get the blizzard look but I would change those and make them not come out of the suit like that. Something that wouldn't be necessary for someone that can form the suit around them.

I like everything EXCEPT the caution stripes on her thighs. The caution stripes look terrible. Take them off.

Eastward - Japanese Style Mixed with The Legend of Zelda
27 April, 2018

Chucklefish, the developer of Starbound, and Pixpil announced a new game called Eastward. The project is described as an adventure experience that mixes RPG elements and style inspired by 90s Japanese animation. Eastward revolves around pixel artist Hong Moran’s post-apocalyptic pixel designs. The team also mentioned the Mother and The Legend of Zelda series as the main sources of inspiration. What we’ll get is an RPG with a nice sci-fi storyline.

In the not-too-distant future, the world around is falling to ruin, as the human population shrinks to an all-time low. You play as a hardworking digger named John, who discovers a mysterious young girl in a secret facility underneath his digging site. After being exiled from his village, John must guide this girl through dangerous decaying cities, inhabited by hordes of monsters and a quirky cast of characters!

Eastward’s emotional story and beautifully rich and vibrant world have been brought to life using a combination of 3D lighting and retro-pixel style artwork, powered by a game engine of Pixpil’s own making. Development on the game started in 2015 with only 3 studio members, and since then has grown to match the game’s ambition, also bringing on board the talents of soundtrack composer Joel Corelitz (Hohokum, The Unfinished Swan & The Tomorrow Children, Gorogoa) and sound design from Irish studio, Hyperduck Soundworks.
