I am tired and relieved and nervous and grateful, and I've said so many words already that I don't know if I want to say that many more. There's a million people I have to thank, and I haven't met most of you.
But we're here,
And I'm done.
Rather than going on and on about my own gratitude, I prefer to let the work speak for itself. But you-- whoever you are, whenever you are-- I appreciate you for being here.
Downloads are here.
Reminders for returning players who did not participate in testing:
Do not start the game from the following areas:
Route 3 Caves
For returning save files, head to Calcenon City to continue the story!
Some Notable Changes:
Field effect changes are in the Readme as usual.
One more bonus for anyone who might be interested. It's been a while since we put up some new wallpapers. I had commissioned a couple to help fill the three year gap between this and the previous release, but for potentially obvious reasons, I ended up not having the time to put them together until recently.
So, why not take a gander here?
I'll post the full versions below. If you need other aspect ratios, check the Wallpapers page.
And now, it's time for me to step back.
I'm not going anywhere. This is my home still. I have no intention to stop making games.
Soon, it will be time for me to turn my attention back to Starlight.
But as far as Pokemon Reborn goes, I'm done.
As for the game itself... who knows?
Cass will be taking over development of any future polish updates. I will still be around for consultation, but I am moving on and we have no new content planned at this time. The possibility exists for the future.
They say it takes a village to raise a child, and this game has been my child. You all as a community have already done so much to help it get to this point-- from modding to translation, making guides, and even just helping random newbies on the Discord-- so I leave it in your hands now. We'll see what we can do in the future to get more and more of you involved.
We might have a celebration stream soon on Twitch or something. And though not soon, I also intend to do a developer commentary playthrough there as well in a few more months. Maybe look forward to it?
For now, I am going to lay down and catch my breath.
Love and gratitude,
-- hi this is cass! editing ame's post after the fact.
she will never tell you this herself (which is why i gotta come in and do it) but there's a patreon for the dev team! you can support us and future work (starlight and whatever else comes up) there!
also- do y'all remember that giant hand-drawn map of region that ame made? it's a poster now! you can get those here!
and, finally, from myself and the rest of the dev team: we hope you enjoy the game! this is essentially volunteer work for us, so we just hope that y'all like what we put together.
