UPDATE 03/24/20: Amidst COVID-19 I’ve begun working on the tile sheets for the first area. Just letting you know that this can be subject to change at anytime for any reason, but I will try to give updates when I fell their necessary/ready. Not quite finished yet, but I am trying to go for a FireRed/LeafGreen feel to it. As for the “Pokémon” there’s 2 things. 1. I have no clue what to name them 2. I don’t know if I want to do anthro characters or make more humanoid characters with some fantasy elements like majestic clothing, horns, tails, etc. It would be appreciated if I could get some feedback on which designs you guys preferred (though it might help if I had an example or 2 to show and I’m working on that.)
For the first, let’s call it an Alpha, release I’d like for there to be 3 main areas of exploration at least. Your home town, the neighboring town with the Professor and stores, and then the city with the Gym with other trainers peppered throughout. Basic Pokemon progression.
COMBAT: I’ve decided I’d make it to where you stuff your Pokemon to execute moves. Much more enjoyable that way if you know what I mean. Each move will have some sort damage type associated with it, and based on the class of Pokemon it’ll deal a certain amount…again basic Pokemon.
Despite Pokemon being a heavy influence for this game, if you feel you may not enjoy it as much then please let me know of a way to perhaps spice it up some more…as if weight gain wasn’t enough lol. Just a little side note I’ve decided there’s not going to be any cursing in the game. I know how we adults like to fucking swear a whole fucking lot, but I don’t think it’ll translate well to the player.
Let me know all of your thoughts down below! Once I finish the tile maps and a couple draft designs for the Pokemon I’ll drop them here. Thank you guys for your time!
