Dec 31, 2020


every screenshot shown is a WIP and does not fully represent the final release
Pokémon Starfall Version
Made in: RPG Maker XP
Using: Pokémon Essentials 18​
Story:
You have fallen from a world above, with very little memory.
All you can remember is the word "Liforia" and that you have an important task to achieve.
With the help of Elder Fig the retired Astronomer, Professor Pine the regional historian, and a young girl named Jenna
you must attempt to uncover the importance of your task, and what your task even is.

To find out more about your task, you travel the historic Ekin Region and unravel many mysteries about it's past.
Conquer Ekin's 8 Gyms, discover the truth of your task, find the past, and save the future in Pokémon Starfall Version.

Features:

- Roughly 200 Pokémon to catch
Pokédex List (open to suggestions of new Pokémon, type changes, or Light Form Suggestions)
Roughly 200 Pokemon from Generation I - V are included.
I usually make it a rule of mine with fan games to not include every Pokémon in the game.
I feel too many Pokémon is a bad thing, I've tried to give a varied amount of types, and Pokémon as well.

I will release a Pokédex List closer to a demo, and if anyone wishes for a Pokemon to be included that has not been it can be requested and I shall consider that Pokémon line.

-PokéStrap UI Tool

The Pokéstrap is a UI Tool which makes certain important trainer infomation availible without entering a menu.
Currently the UI will show, First Pokémon, Current Location Name, Pokédex Seen/Catch value, Money, and Badges.


-Light and Sound Types

Two new types are introduced in game, The Sound Type is a type recently discovered and officialised by Professor Pine.
Light type are long forgotten type which are only mere myths in modern times. It's rumoured that some Light Type's exist, and even light type forms of existing Pokémon.
Many ancient ruins hint of the existance of Light Types around the region also.


-Light Type Forms

As well as some Light Type Pokémon, some Pokemon that aren't light type have forms that are light type.
Some of these Pokemon are: The Mareep Line. The Nidoran Line (both genders). The Natu Line. and a few more.
There is also an original Pokemon Legendary Light Type.


- Semi-Authentic Gen 3 D/N System.

A better looking D/N system featuring Essentials usual color tints, and a similar system to G/S/C where certain windows and doors light up at night.


- The Ekin Region

The Ekin Region is like most regions, it contains various cities, towns, routes, and dungeons.
It has 8 gyms, and it's own Pokémon League Authority. Ekin is filled with much history, and lore.
An important part of it's history is the war between the Umbra Clan, and the Sol Clan.

Demo 1 will only include the right side of the Ekin Region. Future Demos will include the Left Side.

Screenshots:



Demo 1 Plans:
As mentioned earlier Demo 1 will feature mostly the right side of the Ekin Region.

The Red Areas are the planned areas for the Demo.
The
Green Areas are the areas completed with Maps, Events, Encounter Data, and Battles.
Demo 1 will feature 3 gyms, but you can visit towns with 4 gyms. (Gym 4 will be the first gym ready in Demo 2).

ETA: Hopefully before 2020 is over.


Help and Support:
If you wish to help out with my project I'd be more than grateful.
Here's a small list of things I need help with.
-Spriters (my sprites are only okay)
-Story Planning (at the very least I need help with dialogue, despite English being my primary language I am not very good at it grammar wise and with how to word things)
-Beta Testers (when the time comes, I'll need Demo testers. But actual testers, someone who'll test everything... not just someone wanting a demo quicker).

I have a small desire for a Discord Server but not sure if I should. It'll most depend on how well recieved and desired my game is. A discord server will also host my other games too. (Experimental Gameplay, and Lost Hope)

rival aspect that all Pokemon games usually have.

Hey there!
Thanks, I'm glad you're excited.
I could use some help with story elements, hmu anytime.

Update:
I've been lacking in progress for a few days. if you follow me on twitter, you've probably seen i've been super into VRChat and World Making right now... sorry.



I've been working on the first meeting with the Regional Professor. "Professor Pine".
She studies the history of the region and it's many myths.
She knows a little about the word "Liforia" that you heard in a dizzy spell and asks you check out the local ruins.
There's also books inside her Lab with have basic History of the Region, and some lore for the story that most people in the region don't fully understand.

Also:
Would you guys want a shorter (1-2 gyms) demo that comes out sooner? or a longer one(3 gyms) that comes out later?

Small update:


I've been slowly working on extra characters to play as.
You'll have the choice of 6, currently only 4 are designed.
Need to make backsprites for them, and front sprites too.

Oh, yeah! I'll need beta testers later on in development.
Right now there's only one small chapter to test, which I can do alone.
I'll certainly message you closer to a potential demo!
