Relic Game Jam #4

Welcome to the fourth annual Relic Castle Game Jam!

For the uninformed: a game jam is an event where developers will get together and make a game. It sounds simple at first glance, but making a good game is much more difficult and time consuming than you might think. Participating in one is a great way to challenge yourself, learn new skills, and polish your overall experience as a game developer.

Another year, another game jam! Our fourth game jam might not be too different from previous years, but we're nonetheless incredibly excited to see those familiar faces and newcomers alike! Year after year, everyone impresses us with how creative and unique their entries are -- and we don't think this year will be any different.

The Pokémon fan game community is an amazing place, and that's all thanks to each and every one of you. Take pride in that, and your hard work! Let's make this game jam a special one!

And an extra special thanks to @Cilerba for the game jam logo this year!

You can find more information about the game jam in the Overview Thread.

Nuri Yuri

Looking to recruit:
- Pixel artists that can create item icons (electronic items), create animation / mon sprite or make/adjust tiles.​
- Scenarist that can write a better story than I can write using some directives​
- People that has good maping idea in order to map (RMXP or Tiled)​
Jam Entry Title: EM-Mon
Team Members:
- Nuri Yuri : Programmer, database maker, potential mapper, potential scenarist
The shader of my project idea is written in GLSL, I’ve thought about the game and done some research about some characteristics of the EM-Mon (using Wikipedia).
Method of Contact: Using Discord® my tag is “Nuri Yuri#0158
Timezone: UTC+2 (France)
Additional Information:
EM-Mon will be done using Pokémon SDK alpha 23.11+ in order to use the shaders to represent EM-Mons.
The pixel artist must make their resources in 1x1 unless they’re tiles that should be in 2x2.

The game is centered on Electromagnetism, wave and stuff related.
The mechanics of the game will be a little different from the Pokemon Games :
- Skills are related to EM wave unless they’re giving a state like poisoning (EM-Mon has a physical form in another dimension, we can “see” them because of the EM-Wave they’re producing).​
- There are no real types, all the damage and stuff (except poison/burn etc…) are related to the properties of the moves and the EM-mon​
- Items won’t the same as the Pokemon items. They should be electronic items that perform stuff to the EM-Mon​
- The player will have to discover the mechanics of the EM-Mon (how they’re affected by moves and stuff like that).​
- The game will be in English but will potentially have release in other languages if we have time to.​
- I’ll give the other details to the people that are interested (I don’t want to spoil everything).​
Info about the people that can be recruited:
- You’re not forced to do all the necessary resources but items are the most important resources.​
- You can do stuff about the scenario even if you’re not scenarist. I’m multi task so you’re allowed to be so.​

At Night

Not sure if there's still anyone looking to join a team but I could use a person who is good at making overworld sprites as they are not my forte. I haven't released a game yet, but I have experience just working on a project that I ended up scrapping.

  • Progress/Screenshots: I'm working on a game that is in the Kanto region, so I'm recreating the maps and editing them a bit using Pokemon Essentials. I've also added a few new maps to spice up the region. I plan on adding a couple more new maps as well. I've already created 8 maps for this game so far and a bunch of events as well. The story revolves around Bill and how he became the engineer behind the PC. The game will be very story based and involve Team Rocket. Pm me if you'd like to see some screenshots.
