Pokemon Bonfire Stories is about a group of friends having a night out and trying to spook each other with some creepy storytelling. It doesn't matter much what order you play the stories in, as nothing carries over between them except TMs. If you're going for completion based on collecting all the TMs, there is a text file included to tell you which ones are in each story; it doesn't tell you where to find them though! One last note: you can only play each story once. You'll have to start a new game if you want to go back or play in a different order.
Here is the latest version of Bonfire Stories!
Not sure if you're up to date? The newest version says 4 STORIES on the titlescreen.
- Four original stories to play though!
- Play the stories in any order you choose!
- Multiple protagonists to play with!
- TMs to collect in use in other stories!
- No need to choose starters or grind through any early game annoyances. Jump into the lives of established trainers!
- Dev feature: The files are open for you to look at and mess around with, and I encourage you to create your own stories if you're interested
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Why won't my emulator run this game? What emulator do I need?
A: This isn't a hacked game. It's made with RMXP, so no emulator needed!
Q: Can I play this on mobile? Can I play on a Mac?
A: For mobile you can try JoiPlay, but I haven't tested it myself. For Mac, I believe there's something called Wine? Sorry, the game really works best on PC.
Q: You allways add special cheat code names so what are they?
A: I didn't really add any this time! Since each story is completely separate, any special gifts would quickly be lost before you could use them. There might be some special greetings, but the only special names really are the storyteller character's names being banned as player names.
Q: Can I rip or take stuff from this game?
A: No. The game isn't compressed because I'd like to let others add their own stories if they want. It is not an invitation to rip any resources from the files, as they're not all mine. This game was made for a game jam though, and one of the rules of the jam was that any resources I made for the game became public, so here's some free stuff you can use in your own projects. You don't have to credit me for any of these.
Q: So I can edit this game to add my own stories?
A: Yes! If you took the time to develop a whole new story for the game, I would be glad to release an official update including it. Please don't re-release it yourself! If everyone did that there'd be several incomplete versions floating around instead of 1 game with all the content!

I think when this was posted on old Relic it had credits, but now it doesn't require them. Either way, thanks!
