"In the End everything returns to the Beginning..."

Rom Information

Code Base: FireRed [BPRE]
Author: Thrace
Language: English


Awards




Features
  • New Region - The beautiful and rugged region of Serao will be home to many different kinds of Pokémon
  • Decision Based Storyline - Your decisions in-game will affect the direction of the story
  • New Tiles - Realistic and beautiful new buildings in each city
  • Berry Trees - The old berry trees from GSC will be present but what is their significance?
  • D/P/Pt Pokémon - 31 newly inserted Pokémon from the 4th Generation
  • Judeo-Christian References - Religious references in names and events will foreshadow future events
  • Travel Between Different Regions - Visit old and foreign lands, meet new and familiar people

Storyline

"In the beginning, there was only a churning turmoil of chaos. At the heart of chaos, where all things became one, appeared an Egg. Having tumbled from the vortex, the Egg gave rise to the Original One. From itself, two beings the Original One did make. Time started to spin. Space began to expand. From itself again, three living things the Original One did make. The two beings wished, and from them, matter came to be. The three living things wished, and from them, spirit came to be. The world created, the Original One took to an unyielding sleep..."
You are the child of the newly promoted lead scientist of Serao's largest corporation, Uriel Enterprises. A company previously praised for its many contributions to charity and emphasis on fair trade has now become shrouded in controversy due to unexplained spending of investors' assets. One day your father asks you to get a parcel waiting for him in the neighboring city. You visit your lifelong best friend to borrow a Pokémon for protection on your trip. When you arrive you meet a strangely familiar woman who suspiciously leaves abruptly. Who is this mysterious woman? Why is your father associated with a seemingly corrupt company? What does the future hold for the young protagonist? When the border between good and evil becomes blurred, which side will you choose?

    Wow the new genesis. Nice to see you restarted it. Have you got the same scripts as the old one.
    The old scripts were too bare and not very good. Hope you make them better..
    (I heard only legends of this hack.. now its back)

    Good luck Thrace.. (Teh Favorite Mod)

            You mention decision based storylines twice in the first post :D

            Good to see this thread up again, it's one of the prime examples of great hacks.

                Oh sorry, I forgot. I've added you now.

                Anyways, I'm just finishing up the beta testing and the beta will be available either today or tomorrow. Heres the textbox I'm using, its not hugely different from the old one.

                      What this hack needs is a new overworld sprite. I never liked the FireRed sprite. It's too generic. Other than that this hack looks great. I love the title screen.

                          I am glad this is back! I made the Hacks Showcase the first page that opens, when I get on, just in case this is back :D xP. Anyways, The screens looks better than the old ones, and so is the mapping. I hope to see scripts soon. Best of luck on this, Thrace.

                            Woot my favourite hack is back

                            Looking good so far from what I see

                            Is there much difference between Beta 2 and 3(Besides story development and such) ?

                              Yay!
                              Genesis is back up.
                              The new textbox is looking great Thrace.
                              I've been waiting long for this and I can still wait for the "Oh, so (hopefully) fantastic Beta",
                              Keep up the good work, Thrace.

                              (It's sad you didn't win the HotY but, Meh
                              2nd place isn't bad)

                                Uh, a little bit here and there. I don't want to reveal too much, just play and find out.

                                Thats because I deleted it, the one I uploaded had some problems, the new one is up now.

                                Beta 3 is out now. It goes up to the event in the Palerose gym. A cliff-hanger ending of sorts as you'll find out when you play. Link is in the first post.
