Introduction
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

The Project

Currently, we are working on what I call Project Steam. 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 Charpa Region, 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 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. That doesn't mean the lack of traditional gym puzzles, of course.
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!
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 Team Next ('Evil' Team) will be centered around Norse Mythology.

Current Progress
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:

Update:

We're still looking for
  • Someone who can create good Fakemon sprites based on our concept art. The sprites should have a high quality and experienced spriters will most likely be accepted. Fakemon spriters will also have the opportunity to design their own Pokemon for the game.

  • Battle background spriters. If you are experienced in pixel art and want to help us, you can apply as a battle background creator. Some backgrounds will contain tiles we're using for the game, e.g. certain tree tiles will be in the regular Grass background and so on. You'll be able to design them freely but they should have the style of the tiles.
    In addition, if you can insert battle backgrounds as well you will help us a lot!


The other jobs like scripters are still open for application (see the list in the first post).

I hope someone is willing to help out with this stuff, we really want this hack to be completed and we definitely need some more helping hands. If anyone is interested, leave a reply in this thread or message me or papayaperson.
Thanks for reading and supporting the game!

Accepted! We already talked about the details via PM.


Quick note:

From now on I'm managing the threads relating SWHF here since Papaya is busy, so if anyone has any questions or wants to help, PM/VM me or post here. Thanks!
At the moment the most important persons we need are good/experienced scripters. So for those who are interested, feel free to apply with a proof of your work.

Also, we created a Deviantart for concept art and screenshots:

Yo. I think I've actually seen you on another forum a while back. I never registered there but I remember your rom base etc.
Lemme guess... RHR? :D

Spoiler:
Um dir auch mal auf Deutsch zu schreiben: Jo, bist dabei wenn du willst. Wir könnten dringend jemanden fürs Scripten und ASM gebrauchen, kommst wie gerufen
Skype hab ich net (jaja, ich weiß, bin halt n Steinzeitmensch ) aber sollte auch über PM usw. gehen. Muss das Ganze nur noch mit dem Projektleiter abklären aber du bist schon so gut wie dabei.
Bei weiteren Fragen einfach PMen!

^For those who didn't understand it, I basically accepted him. lol
