Very helpful article, Thank you for sharing. I love you Hotmail sign up
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.

The SDK contains everything a developer needs to rapidly get their project going, polished and deployed, including:
The SDK includes a wide range of feature and code samples. The aim of these samples is to cleanly demonstrate to developers how to use all the different parts of the game engine. All of the code is fully documented and explained, and suitable to paste into your own project as a starting point for getting a new feature implemented.
A complete set of the latest documentation is distributed in the SDK. The documentation contains an API reference for every API in the Engine, all of the online game services, a user guide for all of the major components, and most importantly an extensive getting started guide.
- Local Development Server
The Local server replicates all the APIs provided by the live game servers. This allows developers to build their game and correctly use the social web service APIs. The server also implements a local environment for creating a multiplayer game. The Local server also contains a range of tools to help developers analyse and optimise their application. The server reports metrics for all assets requested and is critical to making loading efficient.
Built into the Local server are a collection of tools for debugging the game and assets. The Viewer allows you to quickly preview and manipulate assets. Alongside the Viewer is a dynamic Disassembler that is useful when digging into assets. The Disassembler is designed to help developers quickly pick through any size asset and search for potential issues.
- Asset Processing Tools
We don’t believe in monolithic tools and so all tools are provided as a toolbox. Turbulenz is designed to fit into your existing pipelines and processes. The asset processing tools can convert source assets into the JSON format used by the engine.
- Packaging and Deployment
All tools needed to prepare, package and deploy your game for to the Turbulenz Developer Hub. The tools can be added to your built process so that the output from every build is playable online.
