Time to make an official announcement on the status of Faith & Prayer Version. If I had to round out the percentage of completion of Demo 3, I'd have to say we're at 98.99%.

I have spent the entire past week, and then some, working on where I left off on progress. I managed to finish all trainers, include a trade NPC, drop the Coin Case, and get every single Rival Battle instance and Team Rocket battle finished. Very very little remains before I can release Demo 3, in fact I'll list what remains.
  • Setting up Fuchsia City Gym and its trainers. Probably the last big challenge for this Demo. I've checked the levels I end at and the levels I have slated for Janine. If you battle every trainer indiscriminately, you will be on par with her, if not 1-3 levels over her strongest. I may tweak slated levels. This is roughly 1% of the completion progress, putting us at 99.99%
  • Getting the Bill event in Fuchsia City finished, which is the last event in Demo 3. He gives you the Mini Teleporter/Portable Teleporter, which is the Item replacement for Fly. This, however, also has to be coded in. I would really like to release Demo 3 with the Teleporter programmed in, but if it is taking too long to get I will release Demo 3 at 99.99% completion and aim to get the teleporter for Demo 4.
  • I also have to account for some buggy moves. I'm going to look into whats bugged and attempt to fix it. Push comes to shove, i'll ask for help on the moves and see what I can learn from some experienced scripters.
  • I need to lay down some items in the Safari Zone for the player to collect - what is a dungeon without any collectable items.

Once all these are done, I will be sending the text to my Writing Adviser for grammatical and typographical errors and inconsistencies. Once they finish checking, I will apply changes to the game (Under a new language pack likely titled "Proper English" - this is something I intend to do, if it doesn't, I'll manually fix the dialogue). While fixing dialogue, I will be sending out Demo 3 to select people for bugtesting procedures. I will then fix any bug I get pointed out, and I should have it refined enough for release after that.

All in all, this process should take around a week or longer. I do not intend to delay Demo 3 any later than April 1st, and if I must, no later than April 21st. It has been almost a full year since the last release, and I apologize for that. Several things have prevented me from working consistently on it. A broken workstation computer (I was forced to use my netbook laptop for 5 months, completely stalling progress on Faith & Prayer during that timeframe). I got some minor work done in that 5 month span, but nothing noteworthy. I was also working on another project (Touhou x Command & Conquer: War of the Rice) in the meanwhile. When I did get a new computer, I was burned out from working on War of the Rice that I took a break for a month. I did some more work on Faith & Prayer during February, and that's about it.

I aim to have Demo 4 out much faster than Demo 3, but we'll see how things go.

Faith & Prayer Version is not dead yet.

Quick update from the front: Demo 3 has reached 99% completion, and all that remains to be done is the completion of Fuchsia Gym, as well as a few more typographical issues which need fixing. I'm also looking into getting the 1,8 variant of the Field moves usable outside of battle, as they aren't yet. If it becomes too much of a hassle to prepare, it's something I can delay until Demo 4. Basically, once I finish Fuchsia Gym, Demo 3 is at 100%. I can release without fixing the typos and grammar issues - I'd rather not, but I can.

I am going to say this now to get it out of the way: You will need to start a new game - there is no getting around it. I have edited something in the Intro phase of the game that will be required for a later segment of the game. It's not yet implemented, but a precautionary measure - better to have it now and force people to restart while we're in Demo 2 than we implement it in Demo 10 and force people to restart that late into the game.

Another thing I want to address is: Read the Readme included with the game! I'm not writing it for my own benefit, as I know what's going into the game. I write it to keep the user base informed on what was fixed from previous versions, as well as ways to get in contact with me if there are bugs. Heck, it's even broken up into Table of Contents so you can skip to the section you want without scrolling. It's for the convenience of you guys that I made the readme! Sometime after I release Demo 2, I got complaints about bugs and issues addressed in the readme - as a developer, the last thing I need to be is reminded about bugs I know exist when I'm the one informing you of their existence.

Anyways, I've hammered out a majority of the bugs that my testers have reported. When I finish, I will, very graciously, include a Master Bug List of what I fixed between Release Candidates, what is going to be fixed, and the sort. If you find a bug or inconsistency, please defer to this list to check if it isn't already addressed there.

That's about all I have to say. If I can work diligently enough, I can have Demo 3 released by midnight on the 30th, maybe earlier if I hammer through it. Expect Demo 3 by the very end of the month.

Demo 3 officially released to the public, the download link and information is included in the first post. For threat walkers, I'll include the download link here as well:

Touhoumon Faith & Prayer Version Demo 3 - This release goes from where Demo 2 left off, after the Crisis at the Power Plant, all he way to the aftermath of the Safari Zone Invasion.

EDIT: Demo 3 had bad bugs, I changed the link with the updated version, 3.1.

The new typechart threw me a bit, but overall it's an interesting spin on Pokemon, and I like that it doesn't just replace existing Pokemon with characters that might match from the Touhou universe.

Created an account just to say that your game is awesome! Can't wait for the next demo! Good to see an original Touhoumon game that isn't just Pokemon with Touhou characters like many have said. It's nicely done and full of different fun mechanics. Good luck with this fantastic project.

That... is odd. I've not had anyone report any issues of that nature, even when they started fresh new games.

Well, if you're interested in learning more about the source material, that being the Touhou Series, the wiki is the best place to start. That being said, I'm finally coming off my extended break and slowly getting back to work on it. Getting maps done is first priority, as per usual.
