Pokemon Ryen's back and as you may have noticed it's betther than ever before. The thread died after the game's first beta release back in december but no worries the game didn't! I've been working behind the scenes each day on expanding on what the demo already had improving the graphics, music quality, storyline , etc... Expect another demo with stunning quality to arrive soon guys! Opinions and concerns are welcome and it wouldn't hurt to place a support banner in your sig :p
Visit my deviantart aswell. I will be usually posting things up there before I do here.
Life can be hard, and well, you known that better than anyone. Prior to the events of Pokémon Ryen you , a young child descending from the town known as Pallet, came to a cross-road in life. Your father had just recently left your family and well life with your mother wasn't exactly the best. Together with a barrage of nightmares you decided to leave home, as in run away, in order to find a reason to keep on pushing foward. Along that journey you make friends with the bycycle gangs of Kanto, avoid capture from the police, and discover yourself as a whole; but that's a story for another game ;).
The events of this story take place 2 years after your departure. Now at home you, the champion of the kanto region, are heading towards the ryen region to meet Prof.Oak, and old friend of your mother and father. He mentioned something about another champioship. At the same time you wonder why your mother let you go in the first place knowing you had left home before. I guess she was just happy to see you happy for once.
You're heading towards Citric Beach in the technological marvel known as SS Citrus. On the way you enjoy a movie the ship's theatre. You head outside and meet up with your old friend, Green. At the moment he challenges to a match you reach for Pokémon only to discover thet they are not there. You run back to the shore hoping to check the ship for you friends only to discover it had already left. You fall to the ground in sheer sorrow. The very same creatures that helped you discover who you were are now gone. What are you to do? What you don't known is What you will discover as you travel along the Ryen region will be completely unexpected and completely out of this world...

No way, where did this come from? It just seemed to appear half way down the page.
Anyway, you already know how much I like all of those screens from DA, but everything else looks great too. The logo's great. Really happy to see the best game on PC back!

Wow dude, ryen is now totaly awesome, it was but now is better, i love your tiles, new tree on left side of Oak Office. I waiting for next beta.
July 31st, 2010 3:06 AM
It's back!? Awesome! This game is probably my favourite game here on PC. The graphics are just gorgeous, and the storyline is really nice too. I remember I enjoyed the old beta, so I can't wait until this next version comes out. The graphics are just immense!
Oh yeah, and just send me a PM if you need anything Lugia.

looking good! the tiles are gorgeous, and the plot sounds mildly interesting. one thing though, the 'your story' part has quite a few errors in it, things like "knowing you had left home o leave home before". I'd recommend reading over it once or twice more. :)
July 31st, 2010 6:36 AM
Yes! Ryen's back!
Everything's looking wonderful. The tiles look great, and the overworlds are looking nice.
I'm looking forward to seeing more from this game.
July 31st, 2010 7:17 AM
Wow there aren't a lot of games here I get impressed with, but this is definitely one!
July 31st, 2010 8:55 AM
Whoa, man did know you made the new thread already, it's looking real nice. :D
July 31st, 2010 9:05 AM
Oh, nice, Ryen's back! The graphics look fabulous, although I question why you're sticking with RSE overworlds (a matter of tastes, I guess). I played the demo when it came out and found it fun! Keep it up!
(...with Uranium's thread layout, too... pretty soon we shall take over ALL of the Showcase! hahaha)
July 31st, 2010 9:11 AM
This is awesome, downloading it right now :)
July 31st, 2010 10:41 AM
WHOA! This just popped back up out of nowhere, just downloaded the beta game looks good so far
July 31st, 2010 2:40 PM
Hey, nice to see the thread is up! :D
Everything is looking awsome, as usual. :P
July 31st, 2010 8:41 PM
And also whatever the other people said :P
August 1st, 2010 2:18 AM
it looks awsome , keep up the good work .
i had a problem: i downloaded the beta but when i click to start the game ,the game screen appears and then it closes :| . i was so looking forward to trying the beta :(
August 1st, 2010 8:45 AM
ooooh~ Ryen is back, Ryen is back! This brightened my day right when I saw it! First off, everything looks fantastic and I'm so happy to see it being continued! Also, the thread CSS is gorgeous (I love the Wiki styled Information Box you gave it <3).
Everything looks fantastic, but I did find two or three spelling errors in the storyline but I don't see anything wrong other than that.
In any case, keep it up! :3
August 1st, 2010 11:41 AM
Great! Ryen keeps on getting better and better. ;)
August 1st, 2010 12:42 PM
I don't even know how you did it, but this game is even more beautiful then before. With sprites, anyway. If the story is like before, then that should be good. Only problem is with pokeballs next to water, their reflection is on the rock itself... but I think you noticed that. I also really like the menu, too. Can't wait to see more. Good luck with it again, man.

What can I say the graphics and mapping are excellent!!!! The Only thing I have to say is you need to be more consistent with your tiles, you have what seems to be HGSS tiles and then the merge of D/P/P tiles you can use all of them but use a pallet that you like and make them have a common ground!
Great job kid!
August 6th, 2010 8:49 AM
Really like it^^
Have to try out battle yet though-
August 6th, 2010 9:00 AM
This is incredible! The graphics look amazing!! I especially like the second row screens (night time). The game looks realistic; in a way xD Good luck on this game.
August 12th, 2010 10:21 AM
Ah so it's back!
I'm really happy you made your own OW style, since your tiles have such a distinct look.
I really love the colors, they make the game look nice and bright. A lot of games nowadays are trying to use the sea-through water effect, and most either use it too much, or just don't know how to map the sea-floor, you however use it perfectly.
August 15th, 2010 5:02 AM
Looks like you put quite an effort in the overworld. Nice work man. Keep it up.
August 15th, 2010 5:56 AM
Yay Ryen is back! i am waiting for this time lol O.O anyways the screenshots is great ^_^ i like the tiles :)
August 18th, 2010 10:35 AM
Awesome! I remember playing the old demo, and just LOVED the graqphics in it. Really a beautiful game man. Can't wait to see more from it! :D
August 21st, 2010 11:38 PM
This is probably a stupid question but what program do I use to run the demo because it looks really really good?
