Basic info:

This game was created for the Pokecommunity Game Jam of April 2019, The theme was "circular" but I didn't really follow the theme.

This is a game about Pokémon.
But, not in the Pokemon Universe.

This takes place in a Alternate Universe to the one we live in. An alternate universe where Pokémon did not succeed at it's Red/Green release, and thus was forgotten through the sands of time.

Story:
There was once a game company with great potential.
But, unfortunately, they did not use the potential well, and the universe forgot them.

Many people had to leave the company, including one Iroh.
Who left 10 years ago, and after a year of no contact from his ex work peers, recieves a letter asking for his help.
Help, in testing a new game.

But, what Iroh finds is more than just a game.

This... is the story of Pokémon.

Features:
  • Collect 3 pieces of a circle key.
  • Use the Holo-Circle to use the strange Pocket Monsters
  • Witness many deformed Pokémon!

Warning:
This game features strange/odd looking Pokémon, and disorted cries.
The aim was to make the Pokemon creepy/deformed for the nature of the game.

There's also roughly an hour play time.

I played this game all the way back when PC's Jam happened, and this was my favourite entry of the bunch. I loved the creepy, subdued atmosphere you created. The colour tone and music choice went a long way to contributing to that sense of sort of fear and mystery as you explored the office.

Ah, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Can someone tell me if the download link works?

Made an account just to say that this was a really nice change of pace from many other fangames out there, and how it's setting is used very well! Without any possible spoilers, the theming never felt dull, the Pokemon picks never felt out of place, and the custom sprites were fantastic! The final boss was also fantastic, but I'll keep that on the DL. Good game, enjoyed it quite a bit, and never outstayed it's welcome. 9/10 not enough Aron. I love it!

I was playing this game and then I realized, at some parts the game knows my first and last name and uses it in all lowercase, concatenated together. How does it know my name.... I'm scared....

There is a simple script in the game that reads your PC's username and that is all.
If you're using a Windows 10 and it is connected to your Windows Account it may grab the whole name.

That's all it does though.
