Taking place in the POE region, our hero finds himself in a mess between Team Volcan and the world. Team Volcan is destroying select locations of the world and causing terror for who knows what reason...
I am using a custom tileset because I hate that firered/leafgreen/emerald one it's over used.
All Maps(Image heavy)
I WANT the game to be as closely related to pokemon possible, I hate those games that have time travel and guns, or the player talks, it doesn't seem natural to me! So I set out to fix that problem and make a game, this game's goal is to be as close to pokemon possible, and be finished! I want to finish this so that maybe it will inspire others to finish THEIR games, because I have not seen a finished pokemon fangame that is not a spin-off game! I will be having events in the game that are activated by files on the internet, these events will give out RARE legendary's for your collection. I want to do an online trade server but it isn't going to be on a server I pay for, it will be on my home computer and it will not be on 24/7 though anyone that wants to host their own server for the game can just let me know and I will contact them about them getting their server up!
So the player starts out hearing from his/her mom that the professor wants you. When you get there he tells you he wants you to get his package from the next town over. When you come back he sees how much you bonded with your pokemon so much so he decides it's time you go and earn your badges. Quickly disaster strikes as Team Volcan is destroying things, they are wrecking pokemon cave, and other areas, for what reason the player must find out...
Yup, I want this to be as close to a pokemon game possible, I dont want there to be time travel or guns or any of that other crap! I actually found a sprite sheet I am going to use but it has my one weakness...RESIZING! If anyone is good at resizing drop me a PM!
1 - The title makes me feel racially marked as the unwanted half-breed. o.o;;
2 - Do you have Microsoft Office Picture Manager? It's pretty good at resizing pictures accordingly. But, in order for it to work right, you would have to copy the tile set from paint to Microsoft PowerPoint, set the transparent color from the format option, save picture from PowerPoint as a .png, then resize. otherwise you'll get more than one background color because it stretches the photo and adds other colors.
I can make it transparent with gimp, my friend is helping me with resizing so that's all good. I am updating the topic post with a picture of all the maps put together... why does it seem racist, saying black or ebony is not racist.
I think you should make a deeper story.
Some things that help are:
Give the character a reason to collect badges,
Give the player a reason to fight the evil gang,
Give the player a reason to do everything!
Here is an example from my game(the game is more centered around the evil gang.)
No, there won't be guns.
The player goes after the evil team because they kidnapped his father and even after saving him you still want revenge.
Try to make your story more interesting and deeper without straying too far from the pokemon formula.
There is a certain compromise involved.

Just a tiny update, for some reason cam studio was not recording sound from my speakers but instead my mic, so you can BARELY hear it I recommend turning off the sound for this video, and I know of every glitch that is in here thank you very much!
Alright I need help coming up with the first event, I am thinking a key that lets you access a dungeon where you can find MEW or MEWTWO. I am not so sure about that it seems rather too good for the first event, my other idea is a key that opens up an amity square type thing, any thought's are appreciated.
Your region map needs work. You need to put different tones of shading and I would recommend doing it in D/P style. The maps look a dull and have tile errors that you can easily fix (entrance and exit of the forest). And the trainer sprites are badly pixelated. You should be able to fix these things quite easily. That's all the critique I have for now.
I know what you mean in the forest, that is because those are multiple screenshots assembled in paint and I messed up that area. I do not want to use kyledove's or any other D/P style tileset, I already assembled this tileset. I am working on the trainers do not fear. Thank you for the reply.
