Work in Progress Pokemon Recondite

This project is a work in progress. The content is subject to change, and not finished yet.
Not open for further replies.
This project is NOT dead. Great, now that we got out of the way I can say what I've been doing. I have been working on this game on and off due to irl stuff and to give myself a break so I don't overwork and make something I'm not happy with. That being said, the game will look completely different. I like to call it a graphic overhaul because I'm replacing/editing a majority of graphics into something that are objectively better and/or something I can say I made. That being said no progress on the actual game has been done because why make something and have to go back cause I'm using new tilesets or etc. The way I want to make this game is have all the assets ready so I can go full steam ahead on the game itself. The current schedule of sorts for the game will be:
1- finish graphics to the extent of what I think I'll need, time frame = month(s)
2- finish off adding whatever music I'm going to add to the game, time frame = week
3- scripting stuff, essentially add the features I know for sure I'll have, time frame = week(s) - month(s)
4- update what's been made with new assets and such, time frame = week(s) - month(s)
5- Play test for Pokemon Recondite Version 0.1!, time frame = week(s)
6- New Content!
Once I manage to finish up what I have planned with graphics, I can give an approximation for when Version 0.1 will be out. In order to speed up the process I would need someone to help me make trainer sprites/ overworld sprites.

You and your parents move into a seemingly boring town in the region of Petra. Petra is one of the regions that Kalos was at war with 3000 years ago. You and your rival, Xavier, are taken into an adventure by a mysterious Pokemon that kick starts your journey. You soon learn that defeating gym leaders no longer grants you entry into the Pokemon League, if that's even your goal. As you try to discover the past, the present stands in your way with a new twist and turn at every corner. Each tide that tries to change this region has its own ideal, which do you believe?
Knowledge or Power
Slow and Steady vs Radical and Revolutionary
Past or Future

Just by first impressions, I can see Potiental in this upcoming project, mostly due to the plot. The features being featured in your thread are intesting as well, especially the custom shinies owo). Can't wait to see further development!

I just arrived to Ozark Cave and I can't go any further because I can't cross the bridge for some reason. It's just like there's some barrier preventing me from going on it.
