    Pokemon Empire: Official Game Thread

    Hello everything. Wow it's been awhile since I've been the one to make an announcement. Unfortunately I have nothing extravagant to fill you guys in on. (Besides the fact that testing will be underway shortly.) All I will say on that for now is that I will be making entries at different points throughout my alpha test run to let you guys know how its going, spoiler-less changes we've made any major bugs we need to fix before letting some of you get it on the beta etc. Now onto the real reason why I'm writing..I mean typing this. Progress bar is now on the first post in the thread! We kind of just had every department give a ballpark number of their progress towards the FINAL release of episode 1. You'll notice that the majority of whats left to do is eventing and in game dialogue. The reason this was left for the end is because one our biggest contributors to writing for empire has been away for quite sometime. Now that everything is back in full gear 2-3 meetings is all it should take to complete those portions allowing testing to begin while the rest of the graphical and balance changes are being implemented for later stages of testing. That just about ends my rant, as always if you guys have any question feel free to ask them here or via PM. Look forward to communicating with ya'll and hope you are excited to play Pokemon Empire as we have been with developing it.

    @seki108 on #8: Most of us agree, so its like the majority that think adding more gender based versions of certain evo lines would be a bad use of our time and even if we were to do it it would be so low on the priority list they wouldn't appear for a super long time. A few people feel really strongly about it but we'll worry about all the minor stuff later. Best starter group? Gimme gen 4 free. Might not all be competitively viable but flaming monkey, emperor penguin and Continental turtle is the best trio (even tough gen 5-6 themes are really good too)

    We should delegate poll responsibilities so 7 of us do one a week on the same day every week @Dypatome Also anyone that doesn't think cookie dough is the undisputed best ice cream flavor can catch this 6-0

    1) Insurgence: With all the flaws in every fan game I find the least amount of obvious ones in Insurgence, delta mons and a two type league were game changers. They were lazy with some parts of development (i.e music) but more than made up for it elsewhere. 2) Uranium: Gorgeous world and custom UI, amazing creativity on the fakemon. You can tell it took this game years on years to be made. Not difficult but the story smashes anything a cannon game has ever done.

    Apple and Pumpkin are the only acceptable answers here. Anyone who disagrees can catch me and my lando-t on showdown. Edit: By god @seki108 is right.... where on earth is Pecan?!? @Dypatome you're fired. (kidding)

    Pokemon Glory (in development once again)

    @Swamp King Looking better! I do enjoy the little details like the paws. Can I ask what all of the starters (or whatever they are) are based off of?

    @Swamp King Lets just say that G. Golurk is pretty strong, some would even say it has HUGE power...

    Pokemon Empire: Official Game Thread

    Not a game update but something we wanted to share regardless. @Dypatome took the liberty of making a Pokemon Empire club here on the forums that is open to all. We decided that we would post more of the small updates and stuff there and reserve this thread for bigger post such as showcases, trailers and what not. So if you want to see all of the cool stuff we are working on daily go check out the club and if you just want to see big updates just check back here every week or so.

    Pokemon Glory (in development once again)

    Since I'm sure sprites will be a big point of discussion here once more people view the post I'll jump on the topic now. I think the mascot looks pretty sick, the starters have all the main pillars of a good fakemon, color, shading, proportions. My only problem is they may be a bit bland? With that being said I would like to remind people that good fakemon ideas and models don't just appear out of thin air (Uranium was in development for years upon years after all and a handful of their sprites are still subject to scrutiny.) So if this was the quality of all the Pokemon come the first release I'd be fine with that personally, I am sure that overtime you guys will get substantially better, I know the difference between my team's first and most recent fakemon is astronomical. Hope you guys can get something out of this and be prepared for all the incoming feedback and criticism. Cheers!

    Finally! I have been waiting for you guys to reveal your project since you guys helped me get mine going. Love the unique features and looking forward to seeing even more Fakemon and the changes to the Light type.

    Pokemon Empire: Official Game Thread

    Hey! Been awhile since the last update, so I'm going to make a quick character spotlight. We are working on some nifty stuff that will appear in the next major post here so look forward to that. Now before the main portion let me get some PSA's out of the way. For those who didn't already know we've been working with several other games devs for the past month or so and its really been beneficial for all the parties involved. More feedback, people who specialize in different areas and the ability to share resources in-house is fantastic. @Giantsparrowbee and @Night Fighter are some of them. (If I'm forgetting one of you just lmk). Now with that out of the way lets get to what you guys want to see. So here is the MC's best friend and one of the three main rivals, Alanah. Now we'll cover some background. Alanah is the granddaughter of Professor Aspen. Telius' great Pokemon researcher and philosopher. Her older sister Felicia is a member of the grand council, a brilliant inventor and founder of the new Telian Power Plant located in the Sapphire District. Prior to the war, Alanah was a prodigious student at the Telius trainers academy. Her parents who were scientists had just passed away during a research trek in the nearby region of Yoake. Her grandfather, now in custody of the child, took her out of the academy and began teaching her all he knew about not just Pokemon and battling but about human nature as well. She would often appear in the royal court with her sister and grandfather to present new findings to King Tobias. But as his heart began to grow cold and war seemed inevitable, the Professor sent Alanah away with several other young teens on an "educational retreat" to the Yoaken coast. Here she met YOU and a bond was made almost immediately. With no one else to rely on, the situations they faced in Yoake will certainly prepare them for the adventure to come. Over two years later, the two finally return to Telius. Okay I know what you're thinking, half of that backstory was about other people. Don't worry, now we get into the good stuff. So as the "friendly" rival, Alanah will spend a fair bit of time around the player giving you valuable info, helping in battles etc. We originally created her with the purpose of viewing the world and creating opinions that the player will either agree or disagree with. Your actions and responses will affect how your friendship with her evolves throughout the game. To some of you she will surely be a fan favorite, (and you may be elated that she is a romance option for all genders,) but to others she may just be annoying or not follow your values and moral principles. Although she is very knowledgeable about Pokemon and battling tactics, she has very little hands on experience. But her trusted Nimbus has never let her down. So ultimately, Alanah is a smart, spunky sweetheart who's trust of the player means everything. She may love or hate you based on your decisions, but you could also use her trust against her to make her go against her own moral values if that is what you are about.Kind of longer than I expected but we have MASSIVE amounts of stuff for Alanah so it’s to be expected. As always hope you guys like the sprite (shoutout to my amazing sprite team) and feel free to discuss the character or ask me any questions about her or the game as a whole. Til next time.
