Project Steam - Recruiting
Hello people! We’re the team behind this hack. We’re giving you some details about us first, so if you’re not interested in that, simply skip to the next section.
Papayaperson: I'm Anthony, and I need help creating a ROM hack! I've been wanting to for years, and for 3 years I've attempted learning, and even some mild hacking. I have decent all-around skills, but this has proven to be too much work for one person. My goal here is to create a hack that follows the classic unspoken rules of a Pokemon game, including the pattern for starter designs, eight gyms, post-game, HM moves, etc. I'm hoping that I get some responses and get moving on this game ;D
Reshilegend: Sup, I’m the second guy behind this hack. I joined a long time ago and I’m in charge of the graphics, like tiles, sprites etc. I’m also designing Fakemon. You can check out the main hack thread, or message either of us for more information, if this thread isn’t informative enough for you :)
Currently, we are working on Project Steam. The hack will actually be divided into two separate versions, Shining Waters and Hazing Flames (thus, steam). The differences are mainly parts of the story, version exclusive Pokemon etc. We haven’t decided the version differences completely at this point though. It takes place in the Charpa Region, which is divided into several sectors. These sectors are different in terms of nature, wild Pokemon and so on. The game starts in the mountain sector, and we’re now working on the beginning of the beach sector. Think of it like the different Kalos sections in XY. So, you can really see that we’re trying to include a variety of places for the region to explore. It is a classic style Pokemon game, meaning the player still has to fill the Pokedex, go through 8 gyms, battle the Elite 4, etc. However, there will be new features that will add to the experience. For example, we're adding gym leader challenges. These small quests are required to get access to a gym, and each gym leader has their own special quest that challengers have to complete.
One of the main features of this hack will be the Fakemon. We're investing a lot of time in the designs to make sure that they look good. However, some of them are not final, so their design could still change. It depends on your feedback if we change a certain Mon or keep it as it is! Now, we know many people don’t like Fakemon, which is why we’ll also include regular Pokemon, of course.The stories of certain Pokemon and the goal of Team Next ('Evil' Team) will be centered around Norse Mythology.
We have completed
- a good amount of Fakemon (back-)sprites,
- concept art,
- several early-game maps,
- almost no progress with scripts (due to the lack of scripters who were staying on the team, now we’re catching up though!),
- several new music tracks from different games
- and a very well-along story and plot.
Also, we're currently working on character designs/important people in the game. Here are a few examples of our work:
Sprites (Fakemon Spoilers)
Current Team Members
PapayaPerson - Storyline, "Director", Fakemon Ideas/Design
Reshilegend - "Co-Director", Mapping, Tile Inserting, Fakemon designing & spriting
Nix- „Sappier“ :)
- experienced Spriters (especially for Trainers and OWs! Fakemon spriters should have a similar spriting style to our Fakemon sprites that we have so far)
- Music Editors/Composers/Custom cry makers maybe?
- Artists (Characters/Fakemon)
- experienced Scripters
- Help for balancing Fakemon movesets/stats, coming up with (good!) Fakemon names
- Custom Tile Designer (optional)

We updated both this and the hack thread, still looking for new team members.
(Sorry for double posting)
Bumpity bump bump
Just wanted to let everyone know this project is still going on ^^ We are still in major need of spriters and scripters, so please anyone that has some experience with these things can help ^^
Okay, this thread hasn't been updated in ages. I'll just leave some new screenshots from the main thread of the hack here since the OP is pretty outdated. (For those that haven't seen that thread yet.)
We are looking for :
- Scripters/ASMers (is that even a word)
- Music hackers.
Experienced people are definitely preferred, please leave a proof of your work here and please make sure to only apply if you really want to stay on the team. Past team members have not made any contribution and simply left, which is unfortunate.
We hope to make a high quality hack, so if that's the attitude you like, please join. :]
If you have any questions feel free to PM me and I'll message you here or on Skype, whichever you prefer. Take care guys and thanks for taking the time to read this.
Alright, so it seems like I have to revive this once again due to the lack of any interest in joining our team. Read the post above for more details on our hack.
Replies/feedback would be appreciated, even if you don't want to join. If there are any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Thanks.
