This game was poorly made, in my opinion. I was keeping notes through out the demo, and here's my thoughts.

- Dialog sucked. There was no personality in it.
- Minimal effort put into the game. Haven't even made an effort to change the titlescreen, or the entire introduction.
- Maps are boring. Nothing interesting.
- Water tile isn't properly animated.
- First scene in Oak's lab is strange. Oak just automatically assumes that you want a Pokémon.
- I could heal my non-existent Pokémon before getting one.
- I was able to go around the wild grass before receiving a Pokémon.

Yeah, I just stopped right there. I'm going to assume the rest of the game is like this; in the fact that you say 'go do this' and don't put restrictions for trying to skip it.

From what you say, a bit of it is still a work in progress, so it seems normal enough to me (I'm going to try the demo after this), though it does strike me as odd in the sense that the demo would be released at such an early stage...


EDIT:

I'll jot down some problems I see as well so Ty101, can fix them.
- Raining and Snowing in my house? *And many other buildings.
-Your, I think mother, should talk to youir face, not the side of it.
-There's a sand like pathway put near the shore, and it looks like its make to connect to grass, not the sandy shoreline.
-I agree about the dialogue
-Runtime error talking to someone in the house to the left, above the lab.
-Amethyst Island, including its houses (inside), seems quite empty
-The right foot forward frame of the upwards walk animation of the male hero seems off.
-The dialogue also has a bit of spelling and grammatical errors, like "Meat me at my house"
-There's a masterball symbol for the pokeball you get to catch a pokemon
-I got stuck trying to catch my first Pokemon because even thought the Squirtle's HP was almost gone, it didn't catch it. So I was out of Pokeballs...

All in all its definitely a work in progress. I would suggest making all accessible parts of the game up to a finished standard before releasing a demo.

1. The character development part of the process is still going on. I have yet to develop many character traits.
2. I will mention this at the end of the post.
3. Could you please place some suggestions for the maps. If you did not play bvery far then you didn't make it to any good maps.
4. Has been fixed.
5. The text there was always kind of bad. I am rethinking it.
6. I have fixed this.
7. I have fixed this.

Would you try to add a little more detail and a little less criticism in your next post. If you come back.

All in all its definitely a work in progress. I would suggest making all accessible parts of the game up to a finished standard before releasing a demo.
1. Fixed
2. Fixed
3. Will be fixed, I don't have any tiles that would look good there.
4. So do I.
5. I'll look into it.
6. I will add some new tiles once the new tileset is done.
7. I'll get another sprite.
8. I'm not good at spelling but I can't believe I missed that.
9. Default, I'll get the sprite now.
10. There is a way to get more pokeballs, just go talk to the man again and he will give you another one. This is turned off after you get your first pokemon.

And the three main points that I have made multiple times that need to be posted every single time.

1. The purpose of this demo was to include length, not quality.
2. I have no artistic talent at all and I have tried multiple times to make a new title screen and every time it is awful.
3. The game is not tested due to the lack of help and of time when it was released.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm back and progress has resumed.
Not much progress on the length aspect has been made since the demo (about 5 minutes) Now I have started to add the next section of game.

Even though these comments are kind of harsh I still like to see any posts what so ever and once again, PLEASE FOCUS ON THE STORY!

Are you really that prepubescent that you can't take criticism? If so, why did you even post your game on PC? Criticism is meant to help improve things, not hinder it.

I'm not referring to criticism in a way to put off help.
I'm just saying that whether you ment it or not it sounded very harsh with comments like "This game is very poorly made."

It's my opinion. I wasn't being harsh, I was speaking my mind. In my opinion, this game so far is poorly made.

You released a demo that had issues that could have been fixed with SOME effort. Even if it was 'a work in progress', it might have been an idea to fix them before releasing, versus being lazy.

Ty, with the quality being low and the quantity being quite high it can
attract and drive away people. Though this is a work in progress, try
to focus mainly on the how the gameplay is like.

p.s. got my data back so I can start mapping again for you.

Got some free time again.
My busy week is over.

I mainly released this demo as a way of showing that there is progress, how far the game has come (In the future), and for bug reports.

I was looking for beta testers a long time ago and nobody steeped up.
My way of getting bugs reported was releasing the demo and people will report the bugs.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

There will be an update that I HOPE will be in the next week.
It will not focus on progress ,but on visuals and other graphics.

I havn't made much forward game progress because I've been working on features (as well as the hunt system for nebula) so I will be showing off that way of progress.

The update will probably not be this week.
The list of stuff seems to be getting longer not shorter.

The update will be out at the latest, mid next week.

As said before, the update will be mostly graphics.
A few minor other updates will be included too.

The update will be in a major addition top the first post.
To make all the new info easier on the eye, I will also post it in a new post.

Sorry to break a promise.

The update scheduled for tomorrow will be postponed to monday due to unforseen events.

I will not be able to get on until then either.

Sorry about that.

Here is the update that all of you have been so patiently waiting for.

This is a new fakemon called Lobsnip.


This is Lobsnip's evolution, Shelmet.


Yet another new fakemon. It is named bluburi and does not evolve.


As you can see, I have also changed up the intro sequence.


With team rocket playing such a big part in this game, they will have many new sprites.
Here is a new male grunt sprite.


A set of graphics for a new summary screen are created.
I have not begun to create this summary screen.


I have a new banner.
It is featuring team rocket.


Other Stuff:

Shelmet has a new move called Pour Out.
A large amount of water is poured onto the foe.

Many of the bugs previously mentioned, have been fixed.

As previously mentioned, all of the things mentioned here will also be included in the original post.

The next update will have a small amount of stuff to show off but a lot of materials work will be done.

That is all.
Thanks for reading.

Sorry. I didn't notice the update
Well, everything looks pretty good, but could you maybe shrink the Rocket to its regular size? From here it just looks really awkward.

Edit: Just noticed something about the summary screen: Where it says Stats/Moves/etc., the little tabs look disordered. Was that intentional?

I don't have the original team rocket sprite to show you.
I did not change the summary screen to a .jpg.
I'm not going to worry about it being stolen until it is.
At which time I will completely flip out and jpeg and watermark everything.
Don't steal the stuff for my game.

There is one exception though.
If you are a member then you can have whatever you like as long as you ask me who to credit and you don't pass it on.

The next update is on its way.
I don't know when I will show it but it is almost halfway done.

And on progress.
I have finished 3 of the 5 main maps that you must cross to get to the third gym.
I have finished a forest, route and village.
I still need to map another (larger) route and a city.

Well, the game isn't getting that much attention.
I guess it is because when the thread opened it was awful (Graphics wise).
I am thinking about starting a new game showcase thread with a new name and better graphics.
The name sandstone no longer has anything to do with the story.
I might change the name.

I made a little update to the first post.

Could someone please tell me why I have all of the extra spoilers.
