Game Description
Title Screen As Mega Man storms Dr. Wily's castle to take down his festival-ruining plans for the first (and totally, absolutely, definitely only) time, Wily's ultimate creation, DWN-Infinity Zero, has been activated as a last resort...but as the story goes, it's just a silly decoy robot for Wily to escape! But...hold on; it seems that this supposed "junk robot" has a story of his own to tell...

MaGMML: Episode Zero, an interquel set between the events of MaGMML1 and MaGMML2, is a massive collaboration fangame brought to you by the team behind the MaGMML series! Play as the legendary (?) Reploid (?) Zero as he journeys through over 60 different levels from 40 different creators in a unique blend of Mega Man Classic, X, Zero, and ZX! Blast through levels with the aimable Z-Buster, the trusty Z-Saber, the long-range Z-Burst, and the wildcard Blank Drive, all backed by an expanded version of the elemental chip system from the Zero series.

Although Zero's adventure starts as simply collecting Energy Elements to further Wily's next plan, he soon finds himself wrapped up in much more. As he yearns for a legendary battle with Mega Man, he encounters a mysterious yet strangely incompetent group of rogue "inspectors": the Simulation Recon and Regulation Administration, who seem to have a greater plan than they're letting on.

Unlike previous entries in the MaGMML series, Episode Zero was not the result of a contest, but rather an active collaboration: participants received feedback from a QA team and had to pass a certain quality threshold for their work to be included in the game. The result is a streamlined experience that still retains the wacky, off-the-wall humor of the series!
