Pokémon Rose Gold

This game was made using Pokemon Essentials and RPG Maker XP

Plot


Playing from the perspective of Red, adventure around a new small area around Mt.Silver. Following the events of FireRed and LeafGreen several years later, Red stays up in the Tohjo region to train his beloved team. Use his long time companions to face tough foes and legendary creatures in this short journey through the Tohjo Region. Approximately 1.5 - 2 hours of gameplay.

Notes


This game was made just over the span of a month for Relic Castles 2016 Game Jam. There are a few things I would have liked to improve, but alas, here we are, at the deadline. Other than the things I'd fix or add, I think it turned out to be a pretty solid project, and I hope you all enjoy it.
-The game ends after you battle the last boss on the top of Mt.Silver. But, a few more events open up after that if you want to go find them (3 legendaries and 2 battles).
-I'd suggest playing with battle animation off. I didn't make any for this game, so it's all mediocre stock animations, plus the battles are faster with them off.
-I'd suggest playing with Shift style set to off for added challenge.
-Most bugs have been fixed (other than graphic glitches in the battle system) but please report any you find!
-Check your PC at the beginning of the game.

Hi Atomic Reactor! I really like the plot and the graphics that can be seen in the screenshots. The menu when battling too is nice and the battle backs. I was curious so, I downloaded it. I don't know if the player is supposed to start inside Mt. Silver and have already 6 Pokemon so I wanted to tell you here. I checked it in RPG Maker XP and the Starting Position is supposed to be in the intro, but I didn't get to that part. It started inside Mt. Silver along with 6 Pokemon in the Party. I wasn't sure, that's why. If it the player is supposed to start inside Mt. Silver and already have 6 Pokemon, then please tell me, and sorry. Everything including the graphics and audios and datas are also included in the download. Besides that, I don't see any problem. The graphics are good too. I will stop playing it for now until I get your response. Thank you.

Popping in just to let you know that I had fun with Rose Gold. I always find it fascinating when a game dev starts the player in a position where they are already at a high level, and while I did not use the other Pokémon that you included in the PC, I graciously welcome that sort of opportunity to drastically mix up gameplay. You did well on expanding the region around Mt. Silver and on creating a reasonable summit full of powerful Pokémon. The witty humor that leaks from your dialogue, although saturated at times, always gets a laugh out of me. I'm all about making the people in the world interesting, so I can appreciate what you've done here. I will say that the NPCs start to feel a bit cartoon-ish as a result, not that that's an issue.

Red's brief adventure to seek Ho-Oh and the side attractions afterward made for a good couple hours. Thank you for sharing this game! I look forward to what you put forward next time.

Hey Atomic Reactor, I've got a few comments about Rose Gold!

FIRST OF ALL, it was a ton of fun. The initial scope of the project is small and manageable, one of those "you can play it in one stream session" games that I drool over. The scenario was also really nice--taking place in the midst of a hole of canon Pokemon, where you can fill Tohjo with whatever you pleased was nice, and getting to play as an older Red was fun too. Until the later trainers I had a fairly easy time getting by with the TMs and move tutors given, and the Pokemon selection was fantastic as well. I started with a shiny Espeon which is always a plus.

SECONDLY, there were a lot of very smart Game Design choices made. I loved the optional Master Ball just sitting out somewhere that you wouldn't normally go off to get, but rewarding the player for not just taking the fastest route and actually exploring was a super nice thing. The little towns gave an atmosphere of people who don't normally get out to the city but do well enough on their own--which allowed the towns to be small, manageable, and not at all overwhelming to the player. A+.

THIRDLY, unfortunately I'm sure a lot of the tiny bugs I experienced were because I was using an older outdated version of the game, so I won't speak much to that. A few spelling errors here and there, a picture frame that let me walk into it, and a briefcase event not working properly really were the extent of my issues, which, for a fangame, is pretty high marks!

All in all, this was a great time, a great stream, a great game.

Well done, can't wait to see what comes of the next game jam!

This was a great example of a short game that doesn't feel short or lacking in substance. It's very helpful for my own current WIP short story.

Great visually, too! My only complaint would be that the post-game felt very tacked on - which is fine, it just felt out of place considering the main story.

Hi there, excuse the totally obvious question, however--I try to unzip Rose Gold and it demands a password from me for what I assume is the exe file of the game? So I can't actually access it at all, is this normal?

There's no password for the game. Did you download it from the link in this thread, or from a third party site? If the latter, please download it from the post here and don't download from third party sites that may be immorally making money off fan games with ad revenue.

Nope, it came from the link here! I'll try it again at a later time, could just be something with my computer.

EDIT: It's still asking me for a password on the exe, and I swear I did download it from the link provided by OP.

I'm using 9zip to unzip it and yeah I'm starting to think at this point it's entirely a windows 10 thing! Sorry for the bother, my friends suggested some solutions for me and I'll get it worked out.

Edit the final: Okay! I have determined that 9zip really really doesn't play nice with this kind of file despite saying it should, thanks windows 10 etc, it works perfectly well with no fuss with winrar.

Just completed the game! I have to say I absolutely loved every part of it! The look and feel of the game was astounding. Additionally, ever since I was really young, I always thought that the battle against Red and Gold was the coolest thing ever so it's awesome to be on the other side of the battle field. Honestly, this game was quite the masterpiece in my eyes.

Another great game Atomic Reactor. I really enjoyed playing it and the the way the main game ends was creative as well as nostalgic. However I was sort of lost at some places in the game but maybe it was just me. On the whole awesome game and I am excited to play more of your games in the future.
