Project: Revival

Project: Revival's demo is now out!
Project Revival is my latest game, and it aims to fix old mechanics that I've had in my previous games that were outdated or broken, and to increase the general difficulty of my games.
Of course, the story is still super-important, but now, the game starts much more quickly, so you can get to the action more. This game uses Essentials 18.1, since I started on this game just before v19 was released.

New/Updated/Removed Features (So Far!)
More of the Caracara Region - Technically this is the second time players visit Caracara, but this game is actually a prequel, so this means it's everyone's first time!
Single Pokémon Run Mode - This mode returns with the same features as last time. Choose this mode in the beginning of the game, and you'll only be able to choose one Pokémon, without being able to capture more, or evolve your chosen Pokémon.
Xpertlocke Mode - A new game mode that is similar to a Nuzlocke, but with some added difficulty. Fainted Pokémon cannot be revived as usual, however, Pokémon cannot be caught, and must only be obtained by gift or in-game trade. Hatching Eggs is not allowed, either. Once all your Pokémon have fainted, the run is dead.
Radical Mode - Another new game mode that restricts the player from using held items or items from their Bag in Gyms or the Pokémon League. The battle style is always put on "Set", even if the option is set to "Switch".
Newest Mechanics - Gen. 8 mechanics return. This includes Pokémon, move sets, updated stats, and items. Mega Evolution is also included.
Multiple Save Files - Multiple save files allow for more playthroughs without having to move your save file or delete your old game. The max amount of saves is 10.
The Move Master - The Move Master, in every Pokémon Center, can relearn moves, check Hidden Power types, change the game mode, and check friendship levels. Also, he runs the new Pokémon Nursery, which is an improved Day Care, with much quicker ways of getting Eggs.
Chapters and Sidequests - Project Revival has a combined total of 50 Chapters and Sidequests. Completing at least 49 of them unlocks a special final sidequest.
SOS Battles - SOS Battles from Generation 7 have returned. They may occur during most wild battles after getting one Gym Badge. The SOS Machine can enable or disable them once the player gets the item.
Poké Radar - The Poké Radar, using its Pokémon X and Y features, returns. The player can obtain it by completing a sidequest.
All Starters Can Be Chosen - All starters from Kanto to Galar can be chosen in the beginning of the game. However, you can only choose one! In the final game, you'll be able to grab the rest later in the game.
Exp. Share - It returns still the same as in Gen. 6 and Gen. 7. It can still be turned on or off.
Level Cap - A brand-new hard level cap which restricts the player's Pokémon from over leveling by limiting the Exp. gained past the current cap. The Level Cap begins at Lv. 15, and it can be raised by getting more Gym Badges.
Birthsigns System - This system has been completely removed.
Egg Tickets and Odd Eggs - Exchange these Egg Tickets and get an Odd Egg, which has a 50% chance of hatching a Shiny Pokémon every time.
HM Items- Of course, HMs are not in the game, as they've been replaced with items like the Pickaxe and Hedge Clippers.
EV Resetter - There's an NPC that can reset the EVs of any Pokémon back to zero for 5 Armorite Ore pieces.
Overworld Pokémon Encounters - Overworld encounters been removed, and replaced with the random grass encounters from earlier generations.
Markings - Markings from Gen. 8 have been added. All Pokémon have a small chance of having a marking. They don't change stats, but can be interacted with in the "Ribbons" page of the Pokemon's summary screen.
Egg Incubators - Egg Incubators have been added. Now, the player has the choice to put Eggs in the Incubator item. They'll hatch as if they were in your party. Flame Body, Magma Armor, Steam Engine still affect the Egg’s hatch speed.
Trade Evolutions - Trade Evolutions have been changed again. Now, instead of simply using the trade item, you'll have to make the Pokémon hold the trade item, then use a Link Stone on it. For example, if you want Onix to evolve into Steelix, make it hold a Metal Coat, then use a Link Stone to evolve it. For Pokémon who simply evolve by trade, make it hold a Link Stone, then use another Link Stone on it.
Dropped Items - Wild Pokémon automatically drop their held item if they are defeated (rather than catching it or using Thief/Covet)
The Battle Beach - A much-requested feature, the Battle Beach is similar to the Battle Towers of the main series. Win RP (Rad Points), and exchange them for rad prizes!
Charms - The Mark Charm, Exp. Charm, Shiny Charm, and Oval Charms are all available
Rotom Catalog - The Rotom Catalog can be used to change Rotom's form at any time, just like in Sword and Shield.
Cosplay Pikachu & Other Forms - Cosplay Pikachu, a forgotten feature in ORAS, is back in Project Revival, along with the base flavors of Alcremie.
Hidden Abilities - Wild Pokémon with Hidden Abilities no longer appear randomly in the wild, now Ability Patches must to be used (Gen. 8 item), available for purchase at the Battle Beach.
Phenomenon - The rustling grass, rippling water, dust clouds, and bird shadows from Gen. 5 are added. After the player defeats the Nova Gym and gets a Bedrock Badge, they'll randomly appear. Pokémon have a higher chance to be shiny in rustling grass, and are commonly found with an Egg move. They have a small chance of having two perfect IVs as well.
Quicksaving - Press "Q" or "A" to quick save to the current slot you're currently playing.
Turbo Mode - Press "ALT" to speed up the game. There's three different speeds that you can use. Keep pressing Alt to return to the normal game speed.

The Caracara Region!

Project Revival's Caracara region is much, much larger, and includes much more content and more Pokémon to catch! It is based on the Florida Keys, with influence from other media's depictions of Florida itself.

The Story
Project Revival is the prequel to my previous game, Blossom of the Soul, and also every other game of mine. However, it's highly recommended you play Blossom of the Soul before this game, even if it is a demo! Project Revival's story has strong ties to an even older game of mine, Tentin Redux.
Twenty years before the events of Blossom of the Soul, which shook the entire Caracara region, a mysterious Pokémon has foreseen a dark future. To prevent this, it sends a person to try to correct the future. Nature is dying, and its effects will have disastrous, long-lasting effects on Caracara. In this story, you will see a clash of modern ideals entwined with the old ideas of the past. Will people have the heart to change the course of history for good? Or are they just so focused on development and their selfish desires?

Bugfixes
Spoiler:

- There's a lot of bugfixes, and just so it's in one place and not extending the length of this post, I've made a text document in the download folder for it.


Older Bugfixes
Spoiler:

A full list of previous bugfixes is included in the game's download folder.


Known Bugs & Oversights
Spoiler:
  • Scorbunny's overworld sprite is STILL huge. Let's just say the Scorbunny the player picks are abnormally huge.
  • Following Pokemon may not work sometimes. Jumping off a ledge makes the follower freak out. It's entertaining, but embarrassing.
  • Natural Gift doesn't work as intended. It only acts as a Normal-type move. Currently no fix for v18.1.
  • The Phenomenon script may suddenly make the game crash. Ah, if only I was using v19, then I could ask the developer of the script.
  • The Marking script may also make the game crash.

Version 1.1.7, January 10th, 2022 (Final Major Update)

Discord
I made a new Discord server for Project Revival, as it gets a bit confusing when people ask about Blossom of the Soul when I'm expecting Project Revival information.

Official Guide
Upon getting many requests, I've finally made a long guide that details the entirety of Project Revival. This is where you can find all item locations, Pokémon encounters, Quests, mechanics, Trainers, and Gym information. If I'm missing anything in the guide, leave a comment on the doc. See the guide here!
For a full list of in-game Quests and Chapters, take a look here!

Credits
Spoiler:

This is a long list, but knowing me, I probably missed one. If I did, please tell me. I still have credits here for scripts/graphics that aren't used in my game yet, but will likely be used by its full release.

hi, do we have to redownload the game to update the game to each version?
Yeah, but your save will stay the same, so it'll be fine!

Hi, i'm on chapter 9 The storm Approaching. It says I need to go north from route 15 and meet Narcy and Ferros at the gate on Route 16.
I've gone north from 15 and got to the bit of land with the bit that's blocked off but no one is here. Have I missed something or gone the wrong way?

I think your game is totally amazing by the way, really enjoy playing it

Thank you for playing! If the gate has the officers in it, then that's the one. It can be a bit confusing, but just look for the officers. If you still can't find it, maybe I'd have to look ar your save to see if anything is wrong.

just finished the main story of this one and much like the others it was solid, if there was any gripes i would say i had with it is that the screen auto-resized itself to medium every time i closed it and reopened it (i usually have it set on large) tho after having played this and already beaten blossom of the soul prior my curiousness has me wondering: is there any plans to make this series any larger in the future? i had always loved how these were all connected in some way by their own timeline of sorts and as such actually have story continuity in some capacity and always got excited to see another piece added to the timeline........ if not thats perfectly fine, just felt like asking just to sate my curiosity

EDIT: ill edit this in here as to avoid cluttering the topic but it seems the solo run mode might be bugged as when i tried to start a fresh run as to do a few sidequests i missed out on the game wasnt allowing me to choose my "starter" no matter what mon i tried to pick
but a poem is never actually finished, it just stops moving -Sayori the Cinnamon Bun

First of all, thanks for playing my games! Also the bug you mentioned, I fixed it in the most recent update.
Second, I do have plans to continue the timeline, but probably not for much longer as I may have to start a new timeline!
