Interwave Studios' second title does not want to be called a Metroidvania. However, it's still going to be one of those side-scrolling exploration titles that will have you beating up a fair number of enemies. According to the developers, Dark Matter will feature a deeply upgradable weapons system and limited crafting. Instead of acquiring all your loot from chests, you're going to have to build some of it yourself. There's also apparently going to be some rather intelligent A.I. Dark Matter is allegedly scheduled for release at the end of this year, but I'm certain that may get changed since, y'know, it is the end of the year.
