Made with RPG Maker XP and Pokemon Essentials 2010.
(not really sure if this belongs here in the beginner's showcase, but i guess..)
Information:
Spoiler:
So, I'd been feeling that urge to make a Pokemon Fan-Game again, and this time, i was gonna do it foh real!
I came up with the name, DuskShadow, and Giratina as the main Pokemon, in remembrance my first serious fan-game,
Pokemon Vortex. I had that feeling, and other developers know this feeling, that it was gonna be big. You don't know for
sure, but you just, know it. But anyways, I started development on it right away, gathered resources, the whole chubang.
Eventually, i realized that i wanted this to be a solo project. That's right, Pokemon DuskShadow is a fan-game that has no
team, not even testers, and is gonna finish for sure!


Story:
Spoiler:
Welcome to the world of Pokemon!
You're currently an immigrant from Johto, but have been living here for a couple of years. You live in the small town of Telemoth Town, and it's your birthday today. You decide to visit Professor Oak, the immigrant Pokemon Professor from Kanto. After defeating the Pokemon league, you plan to take over your town's gym.
But little does anyone know that a secret, underground force is at work in the islands of Denvlair and Arvenez.
Can you pass the Denvlair Pokemon League and become Champion of the Denvlair Islands? Probably! ^v^

This is looking alright. I like how you called Professor Oak an immigrant. That's classy, my friend.

I only have a few problems/questions: will you be changing the main character's Overworld sprite? It's a little bland, don't you think?
As for problems, well- Denvlair. That's a little hard to say and isn't exactly aesthetically pleasing. I mean, Telemoth sounds awesome (sounds kinda similar (not in a copied sort of way, though) to Telmar from the Narnia books. I like it), but Denvlair and Arvenez don't really seem to fit with it.

But, you know, it's up to you, I guess.

Well, i accept your constructive criticism, and I can tell you, everything i did with names and towns and stuff, i came up with, so just to let you know..
But i'm sorry to say i can't really help sucking at spriting, so that player sprite isn't gonna be changed. After all, this is a solo project.

Well, I guessed that you came up with it. That's why I brought it up. I spend a lot of time proofreading fiction, and I've read probably a good seventy manuscripts for fantasy novels that just sound terrible because the places are named horribly.

As for the spriting, I can't really say that's an excuse. I'm working on a solo project, and my spriting isn't too spectacular, but I'm working on it. That's what you have to do. Work on it. You can't just give up because you're not great at it.

Hootz, it's been a long time since new progress on this has been shown! :/
Well, progress is REALLY slow now, but i'm not quitting this game! So DO expect some updates in the near future, just not now, sorry.
But by no means, close this topic. The game's still going fresh.

I'll possibly make you a trainer, and over-world sprite if you wish.
