No, there's no demo yet...
=)

Just hang in there, the demo will come eventually, with a little exploring, battling and catching, as well as experimenting part of the features already made, showed in this topic.

The demo will probably include the first and the second towns, and that's all I have to say, since we've basically stopped working on the storyline after the introduction.

~Azura.

Hey guys, I'd like to thank everybody for the comments, and say sorry for the recent lack of updates. ~Heart had some problems with her computer so she couldn't be online for a while, what contributed for this, since I wanted do discuss something with her.

Anyway, she's back now and we had a long discussion about the detailed storyline and specially the demo.
We've decided to extend the demo a little longer, so instead of going up to Buttergrove Town, the player can go up to Town 4 (no name yet). In other words, the demo will be big enough to player to experience the storyline, and yet won't be big enough to reveal all the plots.

We've also made all the storyline in Dorfie Forest, Dorfie Town and Buttergrove Town. Unfortunately, I can't say what we've planned so I don't ruin everything. I'll just say that we'll have a couple of original systems that will, undoubtedly, make Metropolis the new generation of RMXP Pokémon fangames.

That's it... I know you guys like to see some screenshots, but there's nothing really new to show. The battle system basic flow is completed. You can Fight, Run and see your Status. You can attack and be attacked, and attacks have effects like "defense up one stage" or "was poisoned". Effectiveness table is completed, exactly the way GBA games are. I've already done 60 move animations, still 314 to go heheh. After battle you receive experience, but I haven't made the evolution screen yet. And I need to rewrite the Item Screen's code, since it's not working the way I want inside the battle.

I'm heading off now... take care,

~Azura.

Good thing you are extending the demo. I hope it isn't short and crippled like my Tales of Virtue demo. Anyway, glad to hear ~Heart's computer is working again. This means more progress, so yay.

Anyway, the amount of work you put in the battle system is above fantastic. I hope the remaining animations don't drag on for you.

Hey there my friends!

The same as usual, Metropolis team is busy, but we always try to do our best when updating. For example, today...








Running and Cycling, both features that will be available in the near demo. Awesome sprites made by ~Heart. Also showing off the 4th town, still no name for it.
Hope you like, and sorry for not saying too much... I'm in a hurry!

~Azura.

Well, we will be waiting. Keep on working hard (Or hardly working, lol). Just take your time, that's all that really matters.

Thanks Don and everyone else.

We do have new stuff to show, however I haven't decided if I'm going to show it or not... I really need to save something to surprise you guys out when you play the demo.

But thing is... we're working on designing the PokéGear, that will hold the cool features planned such as Phone Book, Trainer Summary, Map and some others from Diamond/Pearl.

Depending on the development of this, we may have something to show (or to not show, like I said above) next week or so.

Pretty much,

~Azura.

Hello little boys and girls, I was just browsing some stuff in the net (just got home from preparatory classes) and decided to post a new screenshot. It's a work in progress feature, but I wanted to show it anyway.



Options screen, FRLG style.

With that done, the only thing that's missing from the default menu system is the Save option. Nice, huh?

Later this week I'll make a post with all the screenshots I've posted so far, just to compile our work and to replace some outdated screenshots, specially in the first post.

Thanks for your support,

~Azura.
