Introduction:
Using: RPG Maker XP [RMXP]

Welcome to my first personal game that I've created, Pokemon Amber! I'm sure you'll enjoy this project in the final stage, but it's currently a work in progress and I would be glad for people to help me out! PM me if you'd like to help! Quick obligatory answer: Yes, the plan is to have a full dex of fakemon implemented in the region. I'm working on the stater concepts, but spriters, concept artists, and other jobs are available to anyone that would like to help!

Now let's move on to the cool stuff.

Plot:

You live in the region of Erio, as an inspired young trainer ready to begin your adventure, when you find out that, of all things, your family has been tangled with a band of the region's most dangerous cult, The Omega, for over fifty years! Your mom takes no time explaining to you the details of this shocking revelation, and ushers you to the nearest dock where you set sail to the main-land of Ario. There, you acquire your pokemon and begin your journey travelling the pokemon region, fighting The Omega as you collect your gym badges. Unfortunately for you, as time goes by, more is revealed about The Omega's master plans, and it is up to you to stop them from destroying the world!

I wish this could be longer, but it's subject to change as well. The main idea of the game is presented, though

Features:

  • 4th generation graphics with 5th generation trees and other tiles scattered around as well
  • A full fakemon dex to come; other pokemon from previous regions will be available
  • All the features of a regular pokemon game!
  • Colosseum Valley, a new addition to the game that will be explained further at a later time!
  • Lots more gameplay is planned for post-elite four!

Erio PokeDex:
Spoiler:

Credits to orohnpokemon and MasterYamVin of dA
(No, #117 will not be the final pokemon, this is just a smaller version for now)

More to be revealed soon!

Media:

all graphics are subject to change

  • Myself - Programmer, Mapper, Concept Artist, Spriter, Idealist, Director and Creator
  • Maruno and the Pokemon Essentials Team - Surprise, I'm using Essentials!
  • Kyledove - Tilesets

    Pretty saucey I think, the first question that I would ask is if you have a motivation for Omega; why do they want to destroy the world? The answer to that question could still change, but an indication helps shape the narrative.

    Thank you for the input, Matsjo. Unfortunately I don't have an update because I've been trying to figure out what I want to do with the tiles. I've always loved the FR/LG tiles and they are astounding, and to add on to that they have inside tiles to match. The Kyledove DP/Pt tiles are beautiful as well, and at the same time have side-ways and backward stairs for mountains which are important! The downside is there are no inside tiles, or gym tiles that immediately match with them. So, to break it down:

    FR/LG tiles:
    Pros:
    -Good looking tiles
    -Inside set to match
    Cons:
    -No side-ways/backwards stairs for mountains

    Kyledove Tiles:
    Pros:
    -Good looking tiles
    -Custom tiles
    -Side-ways/backwards stairs for mountains
    Cons:
    -No inside tiles to match
    -Lots of people use this set because it's free to the public

    I need some input, guys! Basically I would immediately go for FR/LG tiles but the problem is the stairs. If someone can sprite them/find them in FR/LG style and even resize it to fit on to the default Pokemon Essentials FR/LG tileset, that would be super helpful!

      I can sprite side way stairs, no problem.

      Have at it! I'm going to be pleased with the results, no matter what. Thanks for volunteering! Just keep in mind they must match the FR/LG style. Thank you again!

        Double the size.
        Flip it, if need be. Give credit. Enjoy

        Wonderful! If it doesn't trouble you any further, would a sprite of stairs going upwards instead of downwards be too much trouble? Such as the stairs in my cliff screenshot.

            Those are already in the standard essentials tile set.

              Glad to see this project back, man. Anyways I'd definitely keep Kyledove tiles. They're really nice when used well and honestly people don't use them as much anymore [I also have a few kyle style tiles assembled that aren't used as much and can add some variety, I can send them to you if you want]. So I'd definitely stick with his.

              Also the indoor ones are right here ?_? http://kyle-dove.deviantart.com/art/Kyledove-s-Public-Resources-103892943?q=gallery%3Akyle-dove%2F2325544&qo=197

              Thank you! I would like to seem them, but I have made a decision on some b/w tiles I found on kyledoves deviantart. Unfortunately there are barely any houses or buildings on the set so if you know of any RMXP edited houses for B/W style, please inform me! Also if anyone knows how to change the window skin of the text, please tell me that as well. I've unfortunately forgotten in my long hiatus of game-making.

              In matters of progress, the first town and the first route are both mapped out. I'll be scripting the first town soon!

                They're already some in FR/LG.
                I presume they'd be somewhere in essentails tileset too.

                Thanks for the help, but I've decided to use the more current b/w tile set. As I previously stated I need help finding b/w style houses (preferably RMXP ready) and also help with changing the window skin. If anyone can help me with these things I would be eternally grateful.

                    Something similar to the b/w window skin although HG/SS style is ok as well.

                      B/W Was a speech bubble. I think there's a public script for thatt.

                          Hmm, you use your words wisely, but your plot isn't really detailed.. Try making more plot into your game.

                            He probably has a good plot already.
                            But it would ruin the game to give it all away.

                              Hmm, make sense, its just that most games have much more plot, it will make the game seem more interesting and appealing.

                              As Nintendork stated, the plot is revealed as the game progresses.

                              On another note, the tileset is coming together slowly but surely and I'm planning things out.

                              Ok guys, I've been working diligently on the game this week. Whether it be planning things out on paper or spriting or mapping, I've been doing something to make serious progress. I've decided to show you guys some evidence of my work, including the tileset and the custom DPPt style main character. Yes I know I'm not the best spriter but I thought it looked nice! Thoughts?
