    This is an excellent hack. It is different from pritty much every other Pokemon game that i have played. I love the "post-apocolyptic watership down meats mystary dungeon" vibe. I have a few question, observations, and suggestions. firstly, you could fix the "no way to check the leading pokemon's gender for dialog" problem by setting each species' gender ratio to 100% (which the player will not notice as they will only ever get one of each species), and then checking the species of the party leader when dialog must be gender based. Additionally, i think that the sound based puzzle in the multicolored woods should have a clue pointing to the fact that it is sound based in the dialog, for people who play on mute for whatever reason. Lastly, the rock puzzle in the dream world will not register as complete if the boulders are not placed onto the "correct" switches, even if all boulders are placed on switches. Additionally, what happens to your sibling at the beginning reminded me of what happens to the main charachter's brother in the begining on "mother 3". Were you inspired by this?

      I've just played this game, and well...
      Here it is, in a nutshell.

        honestly, i should have mentioned this as well. While I can deal with the occasional annoying puzzle, the harder puzzles were certainly not positives. The puzzles were mostly fine except for the boulder pushing puzzles.( although to long stick puzzle was a bit on the lengthy side.) However, the boulder pushing puzzles took me something like 2 hours with savestates. The last one especially took far too long. I would honestly recomend using a ruby wtw code to short cut to the boss fight. It would be a good idea to at least remove the last stage of the puzzle. Also, for the future, any puzzle that could reasonably be expected to take 50 or so tries should have it's difficulty toned down if it is mandatory. (optional brainbusters are fine)

          Perfect. This game is made to perfection. I absolutely love sokoban puzzles along with the very unique elements which make this game one hell of a unique pokemon sequel to a post apocalyptic society where pokemons and humans used to co-exist with one another. However, I am unable to transfer my .sav file over to the new alpha 2 patched rom. I wouldn't mind playing the whole thing again but I would greatly appreciate it if there is a solution to address my issue.

          The puzzles were meant to be difficult but not frustratingly obtuse - that certainly wasn't my aim, and I wouldn't want it to be a problem that hampers with people's fun. What I think my problem is is that the puzzles got too difficult too quickly, without much of a learning curve, and that's really not a good game design choice when I sit down and think about the project critically. The secret room puzzle's easy enough when you actually get the cues, but throwing complex Sokoban designs at the player and not making it obvious enough (though I did try to make it as clear as I could without flat-out giving the answer away) that parts of the landscape can be interacted with? That's my bad, and this is why I need comments like this to get better. There can be time later in the game for the tricky, complex Sokoban designs and maps with only the barest of hints - after you've learned in far easier stages what to do. And that's the key I've been missing. This is essentially the equivalent of Petalburg Woods that's been reached plot-wise so far; I shouldn't have been demanding so much from players so early on.

          As I've mentioned before, I've been doing mainly under-the-hood hacking on this game lately. Level curve and battles have been the big one (now that the game has 4th and 5th gen moves in it); but puzzles are an important key too. Why would an average, non-puzzle loving person want to keep playing when EVERY PART gets so hard so quickly? It's bad enough you can only heal on certain tiles or through invisible hidden berries, and that there's traps lurking in every corner to make your life miserable. You don't need late-game difficulty puzzles slapped on top of you at the same time.

          I appreciate the input, and expect the new beta to feature toned down puzzles (Those who love the puzzles, don't you worry one bit! The hard ones will start to come back when you get further into the game, but it'll be at a more natural rate this time - not everyone's good with puzzles, so slowing the process down will allow these players to learn and get comfortable gradually) and a better level curve - those spearow leveled the Hero up very quickly, more quickly than he really should have been. As for when it will be released? ...No idea of that yet. Knowing me, probably December - but maybe sooner. You never know!

            You have to rename your old save exactly as with the new patched ROM in order to play with old save

                I really like the Idea of this! I think it could be used to create something like Mystery Dungeon!

                            I mainly play ROMs on my mobile. Try VbagX. It's a mini VBA for me and you cannot run in this emulator but everything other than this works like a beauty

                              I wish I could actually make a decent hack. I can only change sprites, placement of tiles, a small bit of dialog, and the starters (but not the rival's starter). And then when I try to make a warp tile, it glitches often when playing.

                              I've had an idea for a storyline for a while, but the only problem is that I can't change much and hacks, and don't understand a bit of scripting. What programs do you use? :3

                                Get help from ROM hacking section. Otherwise she might have mentioned her hacking tools on the first page of this thread

                                This is a thread about specific hack, you need to direct your hacking questions to threads in different sections.
                                And programs are in Toolbox...

                                  I managed to make it work on android but now i can go to menu screen where a message pop ups and says something about clearing save or data then my game restarts and i get the same message again and again

                                      No one knows clearly about that as the creator seldom addresses her thread but I think she is still working on this hack slowly

                                            If memory serves me correctly, it's about one puzzle long, since it was an alpha.
