Certainly I won't vote Crystal Dust since it may be a great Crystal remake, but well, it's a REMAKE, so I won't vote it.

Then remain Snakewood and Dark Future. I like Snakewood. Original story, funny references and new features; however the fact that it is based on the ugly Ruby still bothers me, but well, this is negligible.
But there is Dark Future. A GSC hack. Something from the 2G. I've played it a little and while the modifications are not really visible, it's really pleasant to go back to the Gameboy generation to play Pokemon outside of the original games.

So for this one, I'd go for Dark Future

I voted for Crystal Dust because I have actually played through the whole thing and tried to catch 'em all again. At times I felt like I was actually playing what Game Freak had been developing, till the DS was announced. So they cancelled their project and Diego HACKED Game Freak and released this awesome game. The End.

P.S. Even if crystal Dust doesn't win, I will always know which game I enjoyed the most

I vote for pokemon snakewood because it has a very interesting and unique storyline..... i really like pokemon crystal dust so it was a hard choice.... but i voted for snakewood because the betas of crystaldust was just the same old storyline as the crystal for the gbc with no extra events or twist in the tale like shinygold and liquid crystal however it had nostagic music and AWESOME ghraphics..... eventhough snakewood did not have good graphics its scripts and storylines and sprites made up for it...... so yeah snakwood is the hack i choose

I voted for Dark Future; I had the most fun playing that hack out of the three. It diverts from the ordinary Nintendo plot while also having many other strong points.

I'll go for Dark Future. I'm a little biased since it's a GB game (a.k.a. nostalgia!), but it looks like it's really an award-winning hack, and should be up there with the rest. It's really unique and well-done.
Overall, though, they're all great games. Good luck, guys!

I agree with kkj1116. My vote goes to Dark Future, because it is truly the most unique experience I've seen among the ones listed. I've seen a lot of the hard work that has been put into this hack, and I think it is coming together really well. You can really see the effort put into it, because there are so many new features that weren't in original Gold, and everything has been changed around (with the exception of some of the graphics, but really, who cares about the graphics anyway? They don't make the game.) I also keep it on my phone to play when I'm off somewhere (which is something I can't say for the other two).

Again, Dark Future has my vote.

Snakewood for the win ! It will be great if the "Award" Section transformed to "Awards" and basically i think it's one of the best yet underrated ( and crazy) hacks in's one of it's kind. Asimov ( and the 9 other members of DEADLY SEVEN) will be proud of it !

Whelp, that wraps up the first Hack of the Quarter competition.

Congratulations Cutlerine, you'll be getting your champagne in the mail and well done to miksy91 and diegoisawesome for showing Emulation what you're made of. We hope that everybody enjoyed the contest while it lasted because the next one will be held in the far-off reaches of November.
