Introduction

Hi there. I am Co500, I doubt most of you will know who I am because I have not really been active on this site for a very long time. Anyway, I use to hack a few years ago now, I created the Anime Hack know as Johto Adventures but that was the only project where I did a considerable amount of work. Some of you make think the title is a strange one, allow me to explain. You see, because it has been a while since I have been active a lot of the people I knew are now gone or busy with other things so the hope is that my idea is good enough to attract the attention of people who are willing to help, much like how a siren grabs the attention of its prey.

And one final thing to put in my introduction, this is not a Team where the leader has no knowledge in the hacking scene. I could attempt to do this hack by myself but why would I do that when I know it would be much more fun to do it with a group of people and maximize the quality of the Hack.


The Hack

This hack is supposed to be different, the aim is to make it more linear than normal Pokemon games. Why? Because to get emotionally attached to the characters I believe that you have to be immersed in them which cannot happen if the player is allowed to roam around, that emotional attachment is lost. This hack will feature a Chapter style story, some chapters will be long for the detail that needs to build up suspense and lay down groundwork for the characters, while other chapters will be short and serve as a break away from the main story when needed. Do not misunderstand, the story I have chosen is to keep the players surprised when things happen as I will go for a more realistic approach to the story. Bear in mind though, realistic does not mean swearing or anything else that is unnecessary, all I am trying to create is a good narrative.

The Story


You live in the world, the real world. Having Pokemon in your life does not fix all of the problems that the Earth has to face because of mankind, using fossil fuels, pollution, deforestation, floods and other natural disasters. Journeys seem to be seen as ones road to success, but the experience of a journey comes from everything else.

Chapter I - Awake
Spoiler:
The introductory, the beggining, the start, where everything changes.
You're 17 years old, living in a rural town, your entire family have lived in this town for 6 Generations but for some reason
you don't seem to fit in. You do not see the appeal in living in a town cut off from the rest of the world while you are
forced to embraces their problems. The only things that take you away from the boredom are the Fields, the Lake and The Cave.
All these places bring you peace and thought about the world and what it would be like to set off on an Adventure like so
many did all those years ago. But the world is different now. The world has changed.

Today is like every other day, boring. You sit there and decide what area you want to go to today, after all, this is your journey. When you get there you do as you always do, you lie there and relax, think about how interesting your life could be, but then all of sudden you're interrupted by a noise, its a Pokemon, right there in front of you. You've heard of this Pokemon before, he is a rogue who doesn't listen to anyone but somethings up, or at least you think there is. He takes a liking to you
and you waste no opportunity as you always carry around one of your dads empty Pokeballs. Congratulations, you have your very
own Pokemon.


Chapter II - The Girl Who Knew
Spoiler:
A few months have passed and it is now your 18th birthday. You have been saving up money for as long as you can remember and
today is the day your Journey begins. You are free.

You say your goodbyes then you are on your way. You reach the town of Celun (See-lun) where you encounter a girl, you do not
know her nor have you ever seen her before but she goes against that, she knows everything about you and proceeds to talk
about you to herself about the choice you made, what choice? After much thought you decide its best that she sticks around to
find out more on why she knows who you are. The girl suggests going to Ortal City, its not too far from Celun and will be
your first view of a City. On the way to Ortal City you come across a Dam, but instead of crossing over it your new companion
decides to sneak in. What at first you think is just a bit of fun soon becomes out of hand when your friend starts to tamper
with the machinery, stating that this is the same company that led to the downfall. All of her words make no sense, she is
talking about things that haven't happened, unless they haven't happened yet? The dam begins to deteriorate while a group of men
show up who seem to run the place. The girl stays behind to distract the men while you can make a break for it. They chase
you while the dam is becoming damaged beyond repair, you make it outside but just as you do there is a large explosion. You
are sent flying off into the river below, with the mysterious girl no where in site.


Chapter III - The Siren
Spoiler:
Coming Soon


Chapter IV - The Break In
Spoiler:
Coming Soon


Chapter V - Rise of an Empire
Spoiler:
Coming Soon


More Chapters to be added.

Team


Co500 - Aka Co (See-oh)
My strongest points are Mapping and Scripting *gasp* A team leader that knows how to script!?
I can do other stuff like editing the Pokemon data or items because at the end of the day I can't rely on other people to do everything for me.
I have to admit though, my weaknesses are defiantly ASM and Tile insertion.

Extra

I like to ramble on. So I shall.

If you are interested in joing my team then that would be great, just know some things. It isnt all about working on the hack, having fun and talking about stuff other than our work can really help. Oh, and if you have any creative differences, mention them! You might have a better idea than me, it could be anything from a script to what the main player looks like. I do not want to just be the "leader" who asks for things to be done in mere hours without actually discussing what we need to do. I feel that taking it slowly can really improve the quality of the hack.

Anyway, enough of me going on and probably scaring everyone off. Im so Alone.

Thanks for your time!

"Because to get emotionally attached to the characters I believe that you have to be immersed in them which cannot happen if the player is allowed to roam around, that emotional attachment is lost."

Not going to be able to join, but I just wanted to say that I disagree with this point. Linear gameplay makes the story easier to lay out, true enough. However, if the story holds enough significant plot, the gameplay is usually a non-factor. I think that the best part of Pokemon games is the challenge in creating that great story with the gameplay style, myself. One where you can have that Pokemon world where cities are close to each other and still have that serious storyline that tugs your heartstrings.

Other than that, I do like the story . . . er, the parts of it that are available, at least, lol.

I'll want to see some proof of you're scripting and mapping skills. You can just PM me and example if you want to. Also could you put your time zone with the availability section, its no good telling me the times you can work when you could be anywhere in the world.

I understand what you mean and you make a very good point, I just feel like they can roam around the area they are currently in which can help set the theme but if they go anywhere it is possible to forget where in the story you are up to which would dismiss the whole build up. More of the story will be added soon too My computer doesn't like me

Sorry to say, after looking over your work I'm going to have to reject your request to join.

Sure, I'll look at them as soon as you send them to me.

Also I'd just like to add, I will not be adding everyone that asks to join, I will add you if you are needed because if you are of no use to the hack then there is no point of you being on the team.

EDIT:
Currently I am most interested in a Spriter and Music Inserter but that doesn't mean I won't need you if you have a different skill.

Hi I like doing sprites. But I've never done anything like making a game. I don't know when I will be available, but I will work when I can. US eastern or NY whatever you want to call it.
