History as we know it faces a terrible threat...

Hello everyone, this is our entry for the Relic Castle Game Jam #4! Pokémon Kronos was made by a team of four, OrreMIDI, Streetie, TheLightSword, and AlphaRemaster. Over the course of the month a LOT of time and effort was put into making this game as full as we could make it, and we hope you can see that from your play through. However, keep in mind that we were working to the very last second (and a bit over but Aki was so kind as to offer us an extension) and as of such there may be a few bugs in the game. We really hope none of them are game breaking, but just in case, save frequently! Now, without further ado, here is Pokémon Kronos!

Team: OrreMIDI, Streetie, TheLightSword, and AlphaRemaster

Plot:
Welcome to the Olympa Region, a very diverse and pleasant region at the foot of Mount Olympa, a large volcano. Based off of Greece, this region is home to a very diverse selection of Pokémon! However, the region becomes barren and abandoned in the future, when people stopped taking care of its natural beauty and abandoned their entire culture. Thus, Team Zeta was formed, an organization created to save the future from this great calamity. You play as a lead scientist and third admin of Team Zeta who developed the Time Cuff, a device that allows Team Zeta to travel through time without the assistance of Celebi or Dialga. However, after discovering the true intentions of the organization, to eliminate any people and Pokémon they deem unworthy throughout history, you flee with your partner, Celebi, barely escaping with your life. Celebi takes you to the past, where you meet Alexander, a philosopher who studies mythology in Olympa. He informs you that Dialga slumbers deep in the heart of Mount Olympa, and that when awoken it can freely manipulate any moment in history. This is obviously what Team Zeta is after, and so Alexander further explains that to awaken Dialga one must capture the three Lake Guardians. You then set out on a quest to save the Lake Guardians and stop Team Zeta from altering history!

Included Features:
-Completely original soundtrack, with the exception of a few remixes and two official themes used!
-Custom overworld sprites to match Magiscarf's tiles!
-A complete set of custom characters designed specifically for this game!
-The ability to travel through time (only in limited areas as we were crunched for time)
-Beautiful maps that our team worked hard to perfect!
-And most likely some bugs and glitches, hopefully none of which are game breaking!

Known Bugs/Errors:
-A variety of mapping and/or tileset configuration errors.
-A few grammatical mistakes that we didn't have time to fix (but feel free to point out anyway so we can fix them on the next release)
-The sailor in Troja Town just doesn't talk to you. (Fixed in version 1.1)
-A trainer on Route 3 does not work. (Fixed in version 1.1)
(THE FOLLOWING ARE POTENTIALLY GAME BREAKING ERRORS, SO PLEASE READ THESE FEW BUGS!!!!!)
-Sideways stairs in Athenian City in the future do not work properly like the ones in the past, and so it is recommended that you save before going down any just in case you get into a place you cannot get out of.
(Fixed in version 1.1)
-If you lose in Troja Town, Route 2, or Ephescent Town and have not visited a local inn, you will be sent back to Athenian City and be unable to go back. (Fixed in version 1.1)
-There may be some warp errors, namely with the doors and cave openings. (This does not include warps in the Tomb of Uxie or Crypt of Azelf that warp you to seemingly random places in the cave, those are intentional for the puzzles.)
-Overall, just save frequently and you should be fine!

NOTE: If you are doing a Let's Play of this game I would love to know, and I can also provide you with Sugimori styled concept art and the logo for the game! I can also provide MP3s of the custom music if you'd like to use in the background of an intro or something, but I plan on releasing the entire soundtrack on Soundcloud and Youtube soon, so stay tuned! I'll add the Sugimori concept art to this thread soon!

If you're playing Pokémon Kronos I've had people tell me it's a bit unclear where to heal. In the past they are called Inns and you can tell because they are usually the only buildings with a sign in front of them and the signs say "___ Inn". Sorry that wasn't made clearer

Just a small update, we are in the process of creating a patch that fixes some game breaking errors and enables you to evolve Pokemon that evolve via trade, so if you haven't played yet I would wait for this patch before playing.

The version 1.1 patch is finished! Here is a link!

Here is a list of the changes:
-Fixed multiple game breaking events
-Nerfed a few battles
-Added more Trainers (most notably in the future)
-Added the Link Stone allowing Pokemon that evolve via trade to evolve
-Added Evolution Square to Athenian City
-Fixed a few grammatical mistakes
-And lastly, added a Mystery Gift based off of Pokemon Twilight (my entry for last year's jam)

If you didn't check the spoiler, we have added a Mystery Gift to this game in memory of Pokemon Twilight, which you can receive by visiting the small house to the right of the Athenian Inn. All you have to do is listen to the old man's tale and then go to the title screen, recieve the gift, and pick it up at any inn or Pokemon Center! We hope you enjoy the game!

Hey, I downloaded version 1.1 but I can't seem to get the save from the previous version to work with it. Do I have to start over or is there a way to transfer the save from 1.0 to 1.1?

I am not entirely positive but I believe that due to the fact that I changed the name of the game and it now includes a mystery gift and some modifications to scenes you may have already played through I doubt that there is any way to start back from where you last saved. I can do some research into developing a patch that will allow you to do that, because it can be tedious to have to play the game over and over again every new update. Thanks for playing the game though, and on behalf of the team we hope you enjoy it!

Yeah, I didn't get very far in, thankfully, so it won't be too bad. But it'd definitely be nice to start from where I left off in any future updates. It's a great game so far though and I can't wait to play more later.

I've made a release that allows you to have the update and start where you left off so I hope you didn't get too far if you started playing on yesterday's update. Link will be in the post below.

Hey everyone, here is an updated patch that allows you to continue where you last saved, and from now on I will not be changing the name of the game as to avoid this issue. Unfortunately this means that if you played on last nights update any further releases will be incompatible with your save file, as I want to keep them all consistent. Sorry for the inconvenience and I hope that you all enjoy the game!

Updated Patch:

Hi I'm Gen8King and I want to do a let's play of this game of yours by using OBS Studio but I can't get past the black screen and it wont show anything else when I test and play it back. I have tried different settings but my laptop may have some different specs to allow recording fan made games and it might not work because of the original settings I have for recording and streaming. I really like the screenshots so far and I want to play it for my YouTube channel playthroughs. Can you help me out so that a let's play can happen on my channel. I will understand your decision.

I'm sorry it isn't working for you, have you tried playing it without screen recording? Otherwise try redownloading the game? I'm not quite sure what is wrong since nobody has brought an error like this to my attention but I am sure redownloading the game should solve the problem since it seems that sometimes there can be errors after downloading. I hope it works for you, and let me know if the problem persists! Also I'd love to watch your Let's Play so leave me a link when you finish! :)

Should you maybe give the player all 8 badges at the start to make the mystery gift actually usable? - It won't obey at the current moment; loving both the game and the beautiful soundtrack so far tho

When I tested it out it worked, are you not able to view the gift? It's a Darkrai and you have to first talk to an old man NPC in the house to the right of the Athenian Inn, I think I forgot to explain that in the original post. I'm glad you are enjoying the game though and hope you don't encounter any major problems!

It's not the event itself - the Darkrai wont obey due to it being along the same lines as a trades pokemon. By giving the player all 8 badges, they can actually use it. Also the only major issues I've found so far are priority and passability issues along with a spelling mistake for rapidash in the grunts dialogue in the town.

Ohhh I see what you mean. Thanks, I'll see if I can release a patch soon!

Here'a the patch, I made it so no Pokémon can disobey because of badges. Hope this helps!

Hey I've started playing, I haven't finished yet but I've got a few bugs to report, and I'm also a bit lost as to where to go XD

This is just a small one, but you can actually see off the screen when standing here

You shouldn't be able to stand here but look at me on the edge!

These guys decide to come back and stand here after they've had their screentime when re-entering the map

You can stand on this door from entering from the side which actually lets you get into the arena

just a small pasability thing

This one is a bit more serious, but if I try to go to the left of the town where I can from by boat, this cutscene triggers again, and the fight happens all over again!

Anyway, I'm having trouble figuring out where to go next, I've done the double battle with the 2 rapidash but it still won't let me exit through the south.

Also are there running shoes in the game, it is just a bit slow without them, that's all.

Anyway, I do intend to finish this game, but so far it has been pretty good! All the towns I've seen so far have been pretty pretty. Also! That title screen intro thingy was very nice! It also seems like you've got yourself a fair amount of content in this game so congratz on finishing it all in a month and a bit!

Which version of the game are you playing? Just want to make sure that some of those things may have been fixed in newer releases, but I will still definitely check this out!
I am working on a patch to fix these issues, I am so sorry that there are these many in the game, but thank you so much for bringing it to my attention!
