Hello! 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
Currently, we are working on what I call
. The hack will actually be divided into two separate versions, Shining Waters and Hazing Flames (thus, steam), and will be an entirely different game (hopefully) by the time it is done. It takes place in the
, which is divided into several small sections. 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
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. That doesn't mean the lack of traditional gym puzzles, of course.
One of the main features of this hack will be the
. 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!
The Region itself is not based off of any specific area. I'm just designing a map as I go along, but the stories of certain Pokemon and the goal of
('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 are staying on the team), 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:
Current Team Members
- Storyline, "Director", Fakemon Ideas/Design
- "Co-Director", Mapping, Tile Inserting, Fakemon designing and spriting
(Experienced scripters are preferred)
(especially for Trainers and OWs!)
Custom Tile Designer

If you're interested in joining, but you're not sure if you should.. Just apply! Every dedicated person is welcome. We will definitely finish this hack, and to reach this goal, we need every possible help. Thanks for reading!
