    Team Member: (ME)
    Game Title: FALSEBOUND (Working Title)
    Current Progress Made:
    - Inventory System complete
    - Working Battle System with wild encounter a.i.
    - Random Battles
    - Tamer Battles
    - Storage Box System
    - Overworld System
    - Monster Progression
    - Naming System Complete
    Video of prototype:
    ^ Keep in mind that the graphics you see in the video/screenshots are placeholders. The video shows off tons of features including, but not limited to: capturing monsters, naming monsters, storage box management, inventory system, and leveling up monsters. Only thing I forgot to show off was tamer (trainer) battles.
    I have quite a lot already coded, but there is still so much more work to be done and things to be fixed.
    Method of contact: Youtube (Google Hangouts), via e-mail at [email protected] , or you could just PM me which I’d perfer
    Game Information:
    FALSEBOUND is an idea that I have for an original intellectual property (IP) that is the fusion of the addictive monster capturing gameplay of Pokemon and Digimon with some concepts borrowed from an old manga I read back in high school back called LegendZ. The game will be made in Game Maker Studio version 1.4 as opposed to RPG Maker XP. The game will be primarily single-player focused as I want to focus on making a game with tons of replay value and player choice.
    The region in the game will be inspired by Egypt and the player will be able to follow their own path as a tamer. These paths will include:
    - Following the standard structure of badge collecting + beat league route like Pokemon
    - Joining a criminal organization
    - Joining a task force to stop the criminal organization
    Positions recruited for:
    - U.I./HUD Designer - Helps come up with the UI/HUD for the game.
    - Overworld Designer - Helps come up with the world the player explores outside of battle
    - Concept Artists
    - Spriters / Tileset Designers
    - Secondary Project lead - This is the highest position in the project. As lead you will the power to make big decisions when it comes to many aspects of the game. For this position, I'm really looking for a solid partner. Someone who could possibly split the cost for developing this game and preferably someone who has some experience developing these style of games. In return for helping to finance the game, you will receive a share of the profit (will negotiate) upon the game's release.
    I guess this kind of goes without saying, but anyone working on the development team will get the game completely free at release.

          Hello, we are looking to recruit the following, for a game we are currently working on.

          • Someone who can edit Luka S.J.'s Ultimate Title Screen resource, the gen 1 style, so instead of the electricity moving in the background, it'll be the fire animation (We are using the offline UPS).
          • And someone who's familiar with the PItem_ItemEffects script section to define an item that can be used from the bag.
          • If you do want to help on the project by doing stuff other than that, don't hesitate to contact me!

          Team Members:
          Me (eventing) (mapping) (spriting)
          SuzuiXIi (support)
          Ampharos 2.0 (scripting) (eventing)
          Haunted Ditto (spriting)
          Lucifer Morningstar (support)

          Game Title: Pokémon Rusty

          Current progress made: We are currently on the episode "Gym Battle".

          Screenshots: While there is a thread for the game it isn't in PokéCommunity.

          Preferred method of contact:
          Either PM me on discord (xUMG#4982), or give me a PM here, tell me at what thing you could do help in, then I'll send you a discord link.

                      - me, YveltalBlue. Working on coding, mapping, story writing and Pokemon development.
                      - Stupid Dinosaur, art and graphics.
                      Game title: Pokemon Abundance
                      Positions being recruited for:
                      Art Division:
                      -Spriters of the following fields:
                      -Pokemon spriting (4th gen+ style)
                      -overworld characters spriting
                      -Digital Artists (capable of making artworks/logos/etc.)
                      -Sprite Artists (someone who can create a unique artwork-y in-game cutscene)
                      -Custom tileset makers
                      Music division - composers
                      Current progress made: early game development. The project's progress is currently relatively slow because I want the game to have good graphics before I continue working on him.
                      Link to the game's PokéCommunity thread:
                      The preferred method of contact: Either Discord (TheHeliolisk #5190) or PM (Skype's also fine)
                      Additional information: The game's story is really developed, lots of new Pokemon are made/planned for him and the region is complete on paper. Currently, the thing the project desperately needs to continue is a strong art division to amp up the entire production quality of the game. I will be more than happy to recruit team members to help me and develop this amazing project. Previous works required. Feel free to approach me with questions about the project.

                        Current Progress: Polishing the GUI, graphics before proceeding with the plotline.

                        Looking for:

                        -Dialogue Writers
                        We really need someone who is able to give time and make dialogues for the game, this will help us to speed up the production of the game.

                        -Spriting and Revamps
                        If anyone is interested to sprite for the characters, as we don't have any sprite artist it is quite difficult to conjure up the characters without making it look very amateur.

                        PM me or join the discord server.

                          Game title: Pokemon Eternity

                          Currently looking for people to help push the game out of alpha into beta and finally an open release.

                          Mapper: We are looking for someone to take over the mapping for our custom region. We use our own map editor; it should feel familiar to anyone who has created maps before, but easier. We are looking for someone to increase the amount of maps we have with their creativity and designs. Someone who has experience mapping for Pokemon or 2D games specifically. Due to the lack of reliable mappers I have run into, I may be looking to commission these depending on experience and quality.

                          Quest Writers: We need someone who can help with side quests and main quests. This would include dialogue, names; the who, what, when, where, why. Someone whose main language is English. This is more of a collaboration.

                          Spriter: We currently have a spriter, but looking to help spread out the work load. We are needing someone to develop more resources for our mappers, typically things like gym tiles, doodads, and new region schemes. We already have many (farms, deserts, forests, different city architecture, etc). However, I am looking for someone to add more flair to the maps and create more varied zones and add on to what we have. In the future, we also have plans to resize Pokemon sprites to be scaled to their more correct sizes, and this will require some upscaling.

                          Logistics: This person would be responsible for helping flesh out the specifics of various systems. For example, we have a loot drop system, in this case the person would be responsible for coming up with hard numbers such as: Items that Pokemon can drop, their chance to drop, any crafting value.

                          I will entertain other positions, but these are what's most needed (in order)

                          Progress and Videos:

                          Team members: Myself, Damaris, Carel, Nerual, Sven. (More who help on a case by case basis)

                          Current progress made: Closed alpha. We have done numerous public tests players, but will need more content to open up another round of testing.

                                Team name: TBD

                                Team members: Currently it's just me doing everything. But after recruiting I will be mapper and scripter

                                Game title: Pokémon Soul

                                Position(s) being recruited for:
                                Spriter (able to create 4th gen styled custom trainer sprites)
                                Artist (creating custom tiles, or editing 4th gen tiles, title screen, menu screens, badges)
                                Writer (the only position I ask for you to be experienced)
                                Might need other positions as the game progresses

                                Current progress made:
                                Story: Currently have the outline of my story. Made some attempts to start the story (Have up to the first "gym" done) but I'm unhappy with them, totally open to new ideas from recruited writer.

                                Scripting: Starting on scripting once I figure out the story, and add/drop planned out features (after discussing with team)

                                Spriting: I've created my own custom trainer sprites for the boss trainers (gyms, evil team, elite 4) but they are placeholders for now until I recruit a spriter.

                                Mapping: Most progress so far, have 22 maps done (not counting the interior of city/town houses, however that's counting the different rooms/floors of caves). Finished the first 6 cities/towns, and 5 of the dungeon areas (forests, and caves), and 8 routes.However most of them need to be updated, or have few more features added.

                                Game's Post

                                Preferred method of contact: Discord, I created a server for the team. I will send the invite link to the interested people that message me about this. If you want to add me my user is Zay#0161

                                Additional information: I only have 4 extra requirements (nothing crazy). You can be inexperienced, or experienced, as long as you can take constructive criticism. Just be a cool person. Able to give updates often (whether it be you taking a break, or updates on the work you've done). Be inspired to work. I can lose inspiration working by myself, but if everyone is working off each other I hope to work on the game at least 5 days a week (as long as my weekly schedule works out). This is not a project I will abandon and I would like to work with like minded people.
