Pokemon Present (5 Case Demo)

Recommended Posts

IMG

 

~The Team~

@Michael_ and @Ekat

 

~Introduction~

Pokémon Present revolves around Sylvester, a kind, albeit surly, officer-turned-detective in Riverview City. Sylvester works alongside his not-quite-canine unit, Swinub, to solve minor cases. Tracking down missing cheques and ice sculpture vandals doesn't come without risks, however; the frigid metropolis is home to ordinary people and criminals alike. To uncover the truth, Sylvester steps on the toes of some of the city's most important figureheads... as well as the mafia's.

 

~Features~

Spoiler

Features Include:

  •  Multiple sidequests, some of which are interconnected, others which have relations to the game's major cases.
  • Five major cases to solve
  • A clue-gathering and mystery-solving mechanic
  • The ability to sniff out hidden clues with Swinub
  • A city setting that expands as you unlock new cases
  • Pokémon up to Gen 7
  • A(n)(originally unintentional) large amount of Spongebob music

Please do not DM Ekat or I on asking for solutions to any of the cases. They are fairly basic in nature, and if you feel you are stuck, keep talking to NPCs relevant to the case. They will guide you to where you need to investigate next or what you need to do next. Also if your text doesn't display, please install the custom font in the "Fonts" folder.

It seems like an interesting concept, though I probably won't be getting to it in the immediate future so I can't offer feedback.

By the by, if you start up the game and there's no text on anything, try installing all of the fonts in the fonts folder. 👀

hi! It’s my first time posting, but I just wanted to comment on how amazing this game is! i played/finished castaway and (I think one of the creators also made) pumpkin, which was also amaaaaazing! The concept/plot was amazing for both and they gave such a refreshingly new taste compared to the usual pokemon games and fangames you see around here. I’m a huge mystery fan, so this game is perfect for me to play on a cold winter day. The graphics are beautiful too.

 

currently, i’m on the third case. I solved the others with relative ease, but this one I’ve been having some trouble with (clearly, I’m not smart enough to figure this out on my own T~T. I swear I tried and talked to everyone!) any help would be so appreciated (i'm sorry i couldn't figure it out)

 

Spoiler

i’ve gone to the spa. Now the owner relaxes on the chair and I can’t do anything about it. I also talked to the bodyguard watching over the girl who is now by the presents, and I’ve combed through the dialogue multiple times to no avail. I also met Lue, got a key and went to the haunted house and got a “present” (more like Roared it away lol), but when I spoke to the marine biologist manager and confronted him, i seem to be missing the last clue (what it is they really do).  i think I’ve combed everywhere, but i definitely feel like i'm missing something. i know it should have been straightforward but it seems my mind refuses to cooperate, so i was worried i might have done something wrong. any hint would be appreciated! 😄 it’s such a great game, i definitely want to solve the last mystery (and the side ones).

 

all in all, thanks for taking the time to make such a gem of a pokemon game. I hope you do many more in the future. i'll definitely enjoy more of this game as it gets updated too. keep up the excellent work! i honestly wish there were more games like yours out, keep it up!

Back at the haunted house the PC has a option called 'Work', that's where you get the clue needed to progress.

Thanks for the kind words! We're both really happy that you enjoy all of our work and stuff that we do!

 

We've just taken a break from dev stuff over the Winter holidays but plan on getting back to it after the break so we can get the next demo out! Cheers!

Ok, i don't know if i'm just stupid but i'm stuck at the first case. I'm supposed to confront the thief and Sylvester said that 'i have all the clues needed' but

Spoiler

when i talk to Cathy (which i suppose is the thief) i present her the fact that she was the last one to have the money, she replies that she doesn't know how to open the safe and i don't know what to say to her... the safe receipt and the safe clue don't trigger any reaction, as any other clue... But then Sylvester says 'not quite there yet', which he don't when i try to confront the daycare man or Mordecaï...

You're going about this wrong. Think about it. Who would have access to the upper room to begin with? What is being covered up in the hotel?

 

Just take it slow and consider all your pieces of evidence before you accuse a thief.

Okay, my bad, i just assumed i couldn't accuse the manager because i was directed to the multiple choices dialogue i had during all the case and didn't try to talk about the hotel reputation again... And since it was my main suspect i turned to Cathy, hence why it didn't work... Thanks anyway ^^

Is there really no problem with the tile puzzle of the second case ?

Spoiler

I have found the four lines/columns ( I : 7-3-1-6 // II : 14-16-1-11 // III 4-7-2-13 // IV 15-9-12-10) but the puzzle don't give me two 7 and two 1. In place, i have a 5 and a 8. Am i missing something or is it normal ?

The code from the book is not the same as the code for the tiling puzzle. 1 can be found somewhere else in the Park Area.

Loving the game so far but I am completely stuck on the 2nd case. I found out about the past relationship of Philippe and Mlle. Duchampe but I have absolutely no idea what to do after that.

I assume you have the clue from Phillipe at this point then ~ I'm pretty sure you have all of the evidence needed to crack the case, just remember what the butler said at the beginning

I'm assuming you mean to get everyone in the living room. But how would I do that? I've talked to the Butler (and pretty much everyone else) like 20 times after getting that clue from Philippe and nothing has changed.
