I am working hard on Pokemon Crimson, and the has progressed much more that what was originally on this thread. I only work during my free time, so I will not be updating this thread until the game is near completion. It shouldn't be much longer, and I will just create a new thread in the official Games Showcase thread. In the meantime, check my youtube channel for occasional updates: www.youtube.com/user/mew339

Happy New Years Eve everyone! I'm
opening the availability for suggestions over my region's name! So if you have
any original ideas, please post below, and you might see your region name end up
in the game!





12/26/11


Hope everyone got what they wanted. I have a gift for the
people who have actually taken the time to look at my game. Since I'm doing
every attack animation in the game, I decided to share some with my supporters.
Under "Downloads you can find a file with a few attack animations I have made
compatible with RMXP. Take them.

Merry Christmas!

Introduction

Pokémon Crimson is actually a restart of my original project,
Pokémon Starfall. After the April 27, 2011 tornadoes hit my area, my house had
survived luckily, but my computer had surged. Now that I have had some time, and
located a backup of maps from my original idea, I decided to start the project
over and use the maps I had already made. I came up with a epic storyline in the
shower one night, so I decided to start the plot over and use my new plot. I
grow tired of the same old concept of going to a lab on your birthday to get you
first Pokémon. I also put some focus in graphics, but not as much as others do
because plots win awards, not entirely graphics.

Plot

In the near future, the world is making many technological breakthroughs. Two
companies (Devon and Silph Co.) that have been in operation for around a century
have gained much power from their tecnological devolpments and now have turned
into political factions. In recent years, Silph Co. has taken control of the
Kanto and Johto regions, and a large island not far from Sinnoh that they now
call the region of Auqa (Placeholder). The island was until recently unpopulated
and barren except to the native Pokemon and people and their small towns. When
Silph took over and populated the land and shot buildings into the sky, the
giant headquartered its company on the region. Soon after, Devon was overrun and
shut down by Silph. To a few, it seems that the monopoly has gone too far and
looks to be trying to take control of the Pokemon World. To most of the
citizens, nothing looks that suspicious due to extreme amounts of positive
propaganda to back Silph.



Soon after, the company finds a way to turn people to Pokemon, and resorts to
human testing. At the age of eleven, you are a young man/woman that is
awakened to find that he/she is being taken away from his mother, who strongly
opposes Silph Co, to work at a secret offshore base belonging to Silph to
undergo human testing for this research. After starting the procedure, it is a
success. You are changed into a weakened, child-like Raikou, and left in the
operating room to be studied and rest. When the grunts leave to change to night
shift, you awaken in the room alone. After some roaring, you here something from
a vent shaft in the room. You follow the sound to find a Zorua behind the vent
and decide to go with it. You can now understand the language of Pokemon! You
come to another room to find a cell for holding captured Pokemon. Among the
Pokemon is a Riolu. You become friends with the two and try to plan an escape.
After a trip through the almost empty base during late night shifts, you seek
out and find an experimental antidote that returns you to normal. You decide to
take the two with you and train them to overthrow Silph. At that moment you take
the antidote and catch the Pokemon, the base is attacked by Raquaza, and a huge
hole is blown into it, were you fall out into the sea. You later awake on Aqua
region, consequently, on the beach of your own home town...



The
Region






The region that was taken over by Silph Co. Most of the land is mountainous,
except the outer land bordering the sea, which is flat. The climate is usually
warm all year, with the exception of the snow-covered mountain peaks. Larger
cities have Silph bases. The main headquarters of Silph is located on the
northern part of the region in a yet unnamed city. Not counting this HQ, the
next largest base would be the 300-floored offshore research facility, which
also happens to be an oil rig on the lower 20 stories. All main confidential
projects are worked on here.



Features

*Epic, original, deep story that is the darkest yet of
any Pokémon game and will have you engaged for hours.


*Graphical improvements

*Two starters

*Choices you make determine outcome of game.

Thanks! The project is small right now, mainly because I have to devote much time to school and family, but I do work as hard as I can. To give a better look at the project, I'm hoping to give a release of the first part of the game that starts the story. When I get more pictures up and some videos, I hope to have it upgraded to the actual showcase. The only thing I need at the moment is support. The more comments/criticisms I get here, the more I will put myself to the project.

This is pretty interesting! I like it. Since you wanted some constructive criticism, I only have one thing to note. The region map's look is a bit weird. It's the thing with the shadows: I'm not sure where the light source is. Besides that, it really sounds good. I like the plot, I can't wait to see how this plays out! Is this going to contain only existing pokemon or fakemon? You asked for consept art so I was just wondering.

Thanks for a reply. For the map, I don't really intend to have a defined light source, so I'll try to edit any appearance of light out. I plan on using existing Pokemon, not really a fan of making fakemon. The reason I need a concept artist is to make human charactors and concept art of locations in the game.

Well, as long as its only small jobs, I'll do some of that! However, I am currently quite busy in creating a black and white style map. I am a bit busy at the moment, but I can do a bit of concept sketches starting in 2012. Merry Christmas!

Wow, this looks really unique for a Pokemon Game. First, we have a (mostly) Pokemon as the main protagonist, Second; it's Silph Co. gone bad (or is it mostly industrialization gone bad?), and Third; the graphics look really decent. I look forward to move progress in the game - keep up the good work.

Oh, correct me if the three views I gave you seem wrong - that's just how I see it.

Naive nature. Very finicky. Tends to steal Captain Obvious' job shifts, apologize, and use different translations of the word "thank you". Excuses, excuses, these bad traits show pretty well - but I don't bite with a grip of a crab.

Thanks, I really need help with that. It shouldn't be too much, just basically some character concept art, mainly of the main characters such as the protagonists. Just let me know when your open. If you have some work that you have already completed, PM some to me if you want and I'll check it out!

Thanks! I want to make this very original, mainly to tell a story, as of now I don't think I'll add online "Wi-Fi" battling between players, but I want to add postgame stuff, like sidequests. I'm not too worried about the graphics either, mainly because I can't script too well, but I will try to make graphics look great after I complete the game.


I just updated with some in-game pictures from the start of the game.

EDIT 12/26/11

Just updated with a gift. Under MISC. Downloads are a few of the attack animations I am remaking to be compatible with RMXP. GIVE CREDIT IF USED.

I'll have some character bios and videos sometime soon. I'm thinking about having this thread brought up to the Showcase. By the way, I'm still taking suggestions for the region's name until further notice. Please send a PM if you have any ideas.

You might want to work on some of the text shadow there. Namely the black and red text, the shadow doesn't make it look very appealing.

I will, currently I am experimenting with the different color schemes for text on the summary screen. Note that only the concept is shown, as there are a few changes still left to be made.

I really like this, it looks really cool and interesting. I really like how it takes Silph Co. and put in a dark perspective.

Thanks! However, you replied to a thread that has been over a month since its last post, and that is against the rules. I am working on this game on my own time, and have decided that I will just get a majority of the work done before I create a new thread in the games showcase. Therefore, I won't be updating this thread anymore, nor will I start a new thread until I get enough done, but to stay with the progress of Pokemon Crimson, check my youtube channel, and I will occasionally update it with the progress. These pictures on this thread are a little old as well. But just look me up on youtube: mew339. I might even start putting info in my signature here to keep you up to date.

Mods, please lock this thread.
