Nirvana: The Mystery Of The Depths


.::Introduction::.
Who are we?

Hey, its me Ray & ~BZuma.
This is the first Darkstars hack, and we (the Dusk Typhoon) are working only on it.
The previous hack is stopped, and will be continued when this one is finished.
I have to warn you though, this Pokemon game is like no other you've seen so far, so don't complain about it.
~BZuma are the co-owners of this hack. I don't know how to thank them for their great services and their efforts.

This is a hack of Fire Red.

We proudly present the first beta!
Version: 1.0 (not beta tested)
Cancelled.

Awards:

.::Rules::.
Follow them~

Don't ask for release dates, its againist the rules.
Report bugs; Don't complain about the hack/ its events and its storyline.
Do not report bugs that they've already been reported.
Don't apply in this thread, use THIS one instead.
Don't apply as beta tester.
Do not hack this game, 'cause we're/will be holding contests.

.::Features::.
Exciting new Features!

* New Pokemon - 50 new exotic pokemon (fakemon), new legendaries and mysterious creatures
* New Tiles - Gorgeous tiles with exotic (again XD) colours, and different trees in each island
* Battle Backgrounds/ New Graphics - Beatiful backgrounds to complete the battle scene, and new graphic stuff
* New Overworlds - D/P/Pl styled overworlds

* Plus Action - You can't go back, you can only go forward (the HM fly will change this). And, more puzzles, and mysteries to solve.
* New Threats - The Fulcrum Agency is wreaking havoc in the region of OrasOran, but something even more bad will happen
* New Storyline - Many, many twists and surprizes
* Gym leaders? E4? - No way. But in beta X(6), you will face the terror of the 8 Master Guardians. >
* Battle Frontier - Eight Master Guardians. Eight new tests. One Battle Frontier.
* G/S/C music themes - Credits to Magnius of course.
There are more features, but the list is so long, so i'm not going to post it. Just play the game and find out~

.::Storyline::.
What a twist.

-Legend-
There are rumors of a mirage, a great threat hiding behind mirrors..
They say it hides in the Depths of the Ocean..
They say there is a drawing of that pokemon, but they never found it.
It appears inside mirrors, and drags people in the Depths..
..
-
They call it "The Leviathan"...
-
Plot:
Chapter 1: "The Intro: Horror"
You're a 15 years old boy/girl, living in Solana Island, located at the Southeast part of the OrasOran region. It is a quiet island.
It was quiet, until the Fulcrum Agency raided the island and kidnapped your mother, but she ordered you to escape from the island.
But you can't from an island on foot. Thats where a mysterious guy named Taz comes in. He takes you somewhere safe... for now.
-
-
General Storyline:
The Fulcrum Agency tries to battle as many trainers as possible, for uknown reasons, and with stolen pokemon. They're raiding islands to steal energy, and then they destroy them.
They keep talking about the "Stormbound Islands".
Before a battle, they use a weird spell called "Vortex Seal", but no one knows what it does.
-
They're raiding islands to steal energy, and then they destroy them.
People of the OrasOran region started to worry about the F.A. But then, a new organisation appears, the D.P.A (Play to find out what D.P.A stands for).
Taz is a member of the D.P.A. This organisation seems to be fighting of the F.A, and is formed by 7 kids that have special skills.

    Wow, another great looking hack Ray. What I mean is, your tiles, OW, and palettes are all amazing. As long as the events make more sense than Road to Dreams, this will be a damn good hack.
    I had almost gotten used to seeing a Darkstars or two here back in the spring...

              Its so original.

              Oh, may i ask something? When's the release date? XD

              When are you going to post the other chapters of the storyline?

              This Hack looks incredibly dark...
              Storyline is cool and dark...
              Graphical Interface looks nice...
              It Has Potential...
              I Hope you stick with this one all the way~

              Its really simple, you just need to edit the o/w frames of the tree... but this thread isnt a tutorial about how to add new HMs.

              Anyways, the new HM Ember burns down a root blocking your way. I'll make a video of it.

              This Hack looks incredibly dark...
              Storyline is cool and dark...
              Graphical Interface looks nice...
              It Has Potential...
              I Hope you stick with this one all the way~
              Gee, thanks.

                Sorry Ray, but something seems... Wrong with the sand:



                It doesn't flow right on the edges, and the objects on the sand ruin the pattern, which looks... Bad to me, but not too major. Other than that, the tiles are brilliant. This whole hack looks good, and I expect to see great things.

                  How could you screw it up? Tile graphics, luckily, aren't that hard to make right, so that is why it isn't major to me. But seriously, fix it please, and if you cannot (I doubt you cannot fix it), I would.

                  When the beta is released, download it, fix it, give it to me, and i'll post the 1.0001 version of the game. LOLZ

                  Thanks for the offer. =D

                  I'm bored to do anything related to the hack right now XD
