Intro

Set in a completely new region, Whisky Brown follows the story of an insanely poor family. After recently being forced to stay in a cave for shelter, the father decides that enough is enough and sets out to win the Pokemon League to earn enough money for a home. However, he is quickly forced to give up, as he's far to old and weak to travel the country collecting gym badges. In a last ditch effort to save the family, he spends the last of his money on a couple Pokedexes, and gives them to his sons, along with two of the few Pokemon they caught. All he can do now is pray that at least one of them makes it big.


Screens

Spoiler:


Added Pokemon (Fake/Later gens)

Spoiler:



Here's a list of all the Pokemon that will be available when I release the next patch:
Spoiler:


Incase the legend is unreadable, here it is:
Green = Findable on routes
Yellow = Available through evolution
Brown = Obtainable through in-game trade
Blue = Starter Pokemon
Red = Pokemon I'm unable to remember if I included

Features
  1. Awesome classic rock soundtrack
  2. Many altered movesets, changed abilities and stat re-adjustments to make weaker Pokemon more useful
  3. New moves and the addition of certain later-gen moves
  4. Lots of humor
  5. Completely new region
  6. Raised difficulty
  7. New ways to evolve trade-only Pokemon
  8. Avalibility of every Pokemon from the first 3 gens, event Pokemon included.
  9. No breeding required for baby Pokemon, they can be found wild
  10. New overworld sprites

Credits:
The PokeMMO Character creator, which was used as a template for my overworld sprite
Hackmew for making like 90% of the tools I used

I haven't got all of these features implemented yet, but I promise you that they will be in there by the time this is done.

Patch (Version 0.1):
https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=207FAE4C209DE5F6

That link also includes a couple of the MIDIs that will be included in later updates if anybody wants to hear them, since I can't figure out Sappy. Enjoy

What? no comments? this hack is such an original one! It's not everyday that I see people posting hacks that have custom soundtracks of rock music! I like your style the maps are kinda empty though, you you might wanna add more details. Other than that, I look forward to seeing more of your scripting!

The Rock music(Although awesome) isn't what caught my attention to this hack, it was the story. It's SO Original and it makes sense! When I saw the title, I thought this was a very early April Fools Joke, but after reading the story, I've really taking a liking to it. Looking forward to playing!

Story seems interesting, though it would've had been maybe funnier if you were able to play as the father (With corespondenting OW).

But the mapping O.o
Alot of tile errors, 1 tile paths which make playing through maps annoying, and empty space.
If you aren't that well hire someone who maps for you there are alot of people around here :>

Also I see no scripts whatsoever, somehow I have the feeling there isn't really anything worth showing if you don't count the story.

Looks interesting enough, but no screenshots with any dialogue or anything really other than maps?

Looks good. You might want to change the minisprites. Also you might want to expand on the story a little. I am not one to be talking, but you might want to change the tiles or find someone who can. After that sounds good. The pictures you have look good.

Thanks :D And sure, the maps might be a little on the empty side, but so were the maps in the original games :p

Yeah, I'm probably gonna remove the 1-tile path. I swear, most of my maps are better than this. And I'm not even gonna approach scripting, I'm afraid of breaking the ROM.

These pictures were taken in REALLY early devolpment, next update will include tons more pictures.

I've actually already changed the player's overworld sprites. However, I'm working solo so I'm probably not gonna change everything

I really like your story, but I do see one problem. The maps that you took screenshots of don't look appealing... At all, really. I think it would be cool if there was more detail the maps. Overall, though, I feel like your hack has lots of potential!

The story for this is pretty awesome. It makes you want to find out more about it. I'm definitely looking forward to it!

What you need though is some better tiles. Get Wesley's Sneidjers even though they're overused they get the job done.

Now this is my kind of hack. Can't wait to see where you take this thing. I clicked on this because of the title, but I stayed for the story!

Everyone who playtested from my facebook page loves them, but most people here hate them. Weird.

Thanks for the advice, but what's wrong with the original tiles?

Trust me, you don't want the patch I released on my facebook, it was beyond buggy. I'll get something out in a week or two.

Updated the main post with new screens. If anyone's interested, the player sprite has been finalized and I added a list of currently-available Pokemon

There you go, looks alot better then last time :>

I actually took the time to check which were the Starters and I came wiht this conclusion:

Either my eyes suck or there weren't any selected with blue yet XD

And just one thing to say:

Please reduce the size of the screens they are really hard to look at and some people have bad Pc's which would make it hard for those images to load :>

Idk, but where's the credit section?

Isn't that hero OW from PokeMMO? At least you can give credit. Also reduce the size of the screens xD

From what I'm seeing it looks pretty good. Goodluck on this! :)

The starters are Scyther, Pinsir and Heracross :p

And sure, I'll shrink 'em down.

I really do enjoy a humorous hack, haha. Good luck, I hope this keeps people entertained for a while (including myself, I'll have to give it a look)

Your screenshots look like they are getting better. I really like the story. So I guess that Gary is your brother in the game?

Well would'nt that be a big contrast since Scyther can evolve and the other two don't?
also Heracross would be the winner unti Scizor in my opinion.
I think the starters aren't really the same level, even with stat editing.

also you didn't shrink them down :<
