    Pokemon: The Cure



    Made with: RPG Maker XP



    Introduction:
    Hi there, my name is Doriam Manuel. I’m 18, and will be graduating high school soon. I am normally a fakemon spriter, I prefer to work with MS Paint and programs that are simple and to the point. I’ve used RMXP for a while now, though I took a long break at the beginning of this school year so I could focus on my senior year; as it draws to a close I’ve started to have more time for this project. That said, I suppose I’ll go through and introduce the project itself. I apologize ahead of time for the lack of images, i'm currently working on the story and fakemon before I go into mapping and characters.

    Concept
    I’m hoping to construct a game in a way that makes it more real-time, in a sense, to the player. I plan on implementing a basic one-on-one battle system (possibly introducing higher number battles later) where stats, such as speed, play a more important roll. I want to combine the concepts of pokemon with the style of a typical RPG in which your character/pokemon use time-based turns instead of turn-by-turn mechanics. In theory, this means your pokemon will also be able to hold more than 4 moves at a time, allowing for greater strategy on the part of the player.

    Welcome to Otlair (Story)
    Welcome to Otlair, a small island region which excels greatly in its scientific advances both in medicine and in creation and research. You are the child of a doctor (father) and a scientist (mother), and they have raised you the best they can so that when it comes time for you to leave the nest, you would be prepared. Coincidentally, today is your eighteenth birthday, which means it’s about time you leave, right? Right. Well, that’s what your parents had always taught you anyway. As you are getting ready to leave, your mother gives you and your best friend a parting gift; your first partner!

    You live with your roommate and best friend in Otlair City, not too far off the coast. Recently, you two have been hearing on the news about a strange sickness infesting the nearby regions. Of course, something like that could easily be cured by the people of Otlair, considering their research departments are some of the best, right? So there is nothing to worry about, and it’s been said that the creature of the region cannot be affected due to a special gene twisted into their DNA.

    One day, you and your friend travel back to Carter city to visit your parents. You are near the border of Carter when your friend falls threateningly ill. You take him to your parents in hope that they can help him. However, you find that your home town has been compromised by the sickness, and nearly every building has been quarantined. The center is bustling with more activity than you have ever seen in your eighteen years, and all your former neighbors are sick with what is being called the new age Plague.

    All but two of them anyway. Old Man Oriel and Old Lady Ilene whose house is the only one not covered in quarantine tape from left to right, top to bottom.

    They offer you knowledge, a history of the region’s past. Should you choose to accept it, you embark on a journey to find the cure across Otlair’s landmasses. Of course, with any journey come obstacles as you embark on several sub-quests leading to discover of The Cure. And with any protagonist, there must be an antagonist; ironically named The Cure.

    The Cure is a company that has recently crossed to Otlair from another region. Their purpose is unclear, but they have buildings, large and small, in a number of cities. It is widely thought that The Cure is the company to blame for the recent introduction of the Plague to Otlair, but there is no proof one way or the other.
