Q&A about a potential Beta for my game:

There is no beta and there won't be a beta. If I'm going to release a game, I want it to be fully playable. So, the only time anyone will be able to play the game, is when it is 100% finished. I appreciate everyone's respect for my game, but, you will have to bide your patience, for at least another year or so, because this stuff takes time. I'm only 1 guy, and I have to pay for a lot of the stuff that's in my game. Which is up there in the 5 digit's range of money spent on this game.

Greetings Pokemon fans! I am sure you are all wondering, "What is Pokemon Symphonic Horizon, and what is with the name?" Simply put: This is a game that has been in the works for a few years now, but I never really had it see the public's eye until now. As for the name, the Symphonic part of the name is to highlight the game's mystic and ominous tone, while the Horizon part symbolizes the vastness and adventure like feel to the game. Pokemon Symphonic Horizon is primarily story based, and will have you talk to characters for a good several minutes, to learn that characters backstory or just to understand their personalities. I wanted to have a game feel like a proper RPG, and capture the feeling of emotion, especially since my game's main thing is its tone. This is not a traditional Pokemon game as one would think; there are gym battles, but they are not the center piece of the story, also the game is mainly tied to a story, as I previously mentioned. I mainly wanted to create something that wasn't the same old Pokemon game that has been done a thousand times over. Instead, I wanted to portray the game with as much characterization, and personality as possible. The overarching tone of the game was meant to portray a feeling of emotion, and make the player feel what the characters are feeling. This isn't a game where you play as an avatar of yourself, but rather these characters are their own person. Which, shows at the beginning since you are not able to rename your main character or anyone else for that matter; they are ingrained into their personality, and that is what I set out to achieve.
 

Story

 
Spoiler

In a region far away from all others, under the secrecy of an ancient veil, laid at rest the secret to the life force of all things. This life force was known as the Dragon Force, and flowed outwards from this region known as Lumia; this energy was the foundation for all life in the known world, and was controlled by an ancient artifact, known as the Arc Stone. However, an evil organization known as the Dark Fangs wanted to use the Arc Stone to remake the world in their own image, and because of that, a war broke loose among the people of Lumia, and the Dark Fangs. Due to the war, eight-years ago, the Arc Stone was used to re-stabilize the flow of Dragon Force by a young girl and her faithful friends. Once the world’s Dragon Force re-stabilized, the young girl and her companions split the Arc Stone into eighteen fragments, and hid them away in protected sanctuaries; so that no one could ever use the Arc Stone for evil ever again. As for the heroes who made all this happen, their efforts were all but in vain. The heroes were betrayed by one of their most loyal companions, and revealed himself to be the true leader of the Dark Fangs; he then struck his friends down, one-by-one, on the lonely coast of Dawn Beach. Upon their defeat, a grim fog began to take over the coast-side of Symphonic Beach, and leaving a mark of betrayal among all the people of Lumia. Feeling no remorse towards the actions he has caused, the boy temporarily disbanded his organization, and began plotting his next big ambition. However, all is not lost, as new heroes begin to make their arrival to stop the boy’s plan, and bring peace to the region of Lumia.

Vice is an enigma of a character, in that he has no memories of who he is, or why he is in the Lumia Region in the first place. He generally comes off as quite calm and polite towards others, while expressing his displeasure at being nagged to end a conversation by his Eevee. He is the center point of the game's story, and is the character that opposes one of the Dark Fang Admins more frequently; which is Alex Briggard. Throughout the story there are many similarities that are drawn between him and Vaan Cresthart, a character that is surrounded in mystery, alongside his companions: Ariana Valeria, the Ex-Champion of the Lumia Region, and the previous owner to Vice's Eevee, Mia Vance, Vivian's older Sister, and the previous owner of the Mareep Farm in Symphonic Beach. Vice generally shows a lot of admiration and respect towards his friends, and never really teases them for their weaknesses, and is often seen as a role model towards Marissa and Hiro. His relationships with the other members in the group follow as such:
 
Towards Eevee: When Vice first met Eevee, she was generally quite confused as to who Vice was. She believed that Vice as her old companion, but quickly dismissed this, and treated Vice passively. Often times, rushing Vice through his conversations, so as to hurry up and continue with their journey. That said, Vice still has a lot of respect for Eevee, and feels sorry for her when she talks about all the things that happened in her past. The same can be said with Eevee feeling bad for Vice, mainly for his insomnia and constant black-outs when he hears voices in his head. Later on, Eevee becomes more open, and doesn't rush Vice when a conversation gets going, and sometimes pitches into them and giving more insight and information about locations and the Pokemon around them.
 
Towards Marissa: Being his first friend, and the one to save him from him passing out near Seabreak Path's Ocean Ridge, Vice is very open and friendly towards her. Throughout the game Vice is looked as a role model towards Marissa, and because of that Marissa tries to become just as confident, free-spirited and strong as him. He shows great trust towards her, and often times show's a great deal of compassion when she is feeling down and alone, often times comforting her when needed. Vice shows a lot of gratitude towards her, when Marissa showed Vice how to perform jumps in the Hydro Sanctuary, and thanks her greatly later on, which Marissa blushes in embarrassment. Marissa was the only character alongside Krista who actively watched over Vice when he was knocked unconscious by Nero, and was then teased by Krista about her care towards Vice. Later on in the game, there is a choice of who you would like Vice to "pair up with" (if you get what I mean), and that choice determines which ending you get. Marissa is one of the two characters who show feelings towards Vice, and even hints at it throughout the game. Vice openly refers to Marissa as his best-friend.
 
Towards Vivian: When Vice and Vivian first met, it wasn't really a very great first impression; she jumped Vice, and his Eevee mistaking them for Nero Cresthart, and attempted to kill them. However, after the battle the misunderstanding was cleared up, and Vivian joins the group to take revenge on Nero. Vice is generally very optimistic towards Vivian, and is often times very impressed with her Ninja abilities; so much so that he even takes up training with her later on in the game, but to no avail, as he is not yet ready to learn Ninja techniques. Vivian sees Vice as someone she can depend on, and give encouragement to when she is in a flustered rage when greeted with the Dark Fangs. Most of the time Vice is the one to ultimately calm her down when she gets into a rage, and even protects her when a Dark Fang targets her for capture. You are even able to sway Vivian's heart towards Vice's if you go through a series of side-quests, and then choose her during a certain scene later on, even though Vivian shows that she is enamored by Allan.
 
Towards Krista: Vice see's Krista as a kind and open-minded person, who is extremely polite to him and his friends. Vice is very supportive of Krista's mysterious relationship with another young, yet powerful trainer, and even goes so far as to help her find him during the sidequest with her. Krista respects Vice and cares very much about his safety, along with the other characters; she was one of the characters alongside Marissa who watched over and took care of Vice when he was unconscious due to Nero knocking him out. When it comes to Krista's many abilities Vice is often times the one who gives her praise for her versatility with being the only one in the group to utilize HM abilities, as well as her sensory skills. Krista however is the only character that Vice cannot pair up with later on, as her goals were already set before they met each other.
 
Towards Hiro: Throughout the game Hiro is actually the voice talking to Vice in his head, and is the one narrating the story. Hiro is one of the few characters who openly reveals to have a crush on him, and much like Marissa looks up to him greatly. Aside from her crush on Vice, she is a very kind and sincere person, and is more than willing to stand up and defend anyone in the group; which Vice commends her greatly for. Vice, being unaware of the feelings that Hiro has for him, treats her kindly when he revived Hiro from her stasis in the City of the Timeless, the city which she and her brother protect alongside Dialga. Vice is often times seen protecting Hiro when the Dark Fangs attempt to kidnap her for the Adamant Orb Fragment that rests upon the center of her chest, and even goes so far as to get hit by a Hydreigon's Fire Fang to protect her. Much like with the other characters, you can choose Hiro to pair up with Vice and change the ending of the game.
 
Towards Allan: When Vice and Allan first faced off in the Chasm of Frozen Time, on the edge of the City of the Timeless, Allan was cold and direct towards him and his group of friends, even stating to kill them if they trespassed any further. After their initial fight, and explaining to him the situation Allan agrees to join their group upon Hiro's confirmation when she awakens from her stasis. Later on Allan acts as a mentor towards Vice and is the love interest to Vivian Vance, which he often times questions why Vivian is acting so strangely. At points in the game, Allan and Vice do training on their own as Allan teaches him techniques to further harness his Pokemon Training abilities. Even though they came off to a rough start, Vice openly respects Allan and treats him like a mentor of sorts. Towards a certain point in the game, if you choose not to do the sidequests with Vivian and not choose her, after the ending Vivian and Allan pair up.

I know you two are having the greatest conversation in the world, and all, but I think we should start searching this sanctuary.

I have to make sure that this world turns in the right direction, so that the deaths of my friends weren’t in vain. The Dark Fangs will not win this time around; I must make sure of that.

Throughout the game Marissa shows to have a crush on Vice, and often times blushes immensely whenever she is caught doing something for him. Even still, she has lived a very lonely life, at the age of 3 Marissa's parents disappeared suddenly, while Helena and the Brennan Estates maids took care of Marissa. Being very close to Helena, Marissa usually goes towards Helena for moral and emotional support while left alone at her Estate.

Vivian is a Ninja from Namira Village who currently lives in Flower Gale Village. She is the sister of Mia Vance, the former leader of Namira Village and the original owner of the Mareep Farm in Symphonic Beach. Throughout the story Vivian can be described as extroverted, silly, and extremely outgoing. Vivian possesses Ninja Techniques that other characters in the group do not, such as her Shadow Division Technique which allows for her to create a clone of herself to distract Trainers or Dark Fangs. She is also the quickest out of the entire party, and nearly being able to outspeed a bicycle. Not only that but she possesses the farthest jumping distance out of everyone. Despite her extremely outgoing and less than concentrated demeanor, she is actually very smart, especially when it comes to tinkering with technology. She has proven to be very adept at wiring circuitry, as shown in one of the Dark Fang bases in Megiddo Desert to try and gain access to a room that is electronically locked. Throughout the course of the game Vivian is first encountered at Auburn Way, as she mistakes Vice for Nero Cresthart and attempts to battle him and thereafter kill him. However, she ends up losing and the situation is resolved. Vivian can be put simply as the groups lockpicker as well; being able to open anything in the game that is locked. Besides that, Vivian holds a strong grudge towards the Dark Fangs, due to the evil organization killing her sister, and almost destroying Shaymin Village. The Dark Fangs inevitably take over Vivian's Village and attempts to rescue the party from their capture and take on Nero Cresthart personally after all that he has done to her and her family.
 
Towards Vice: Before Vice and Vivian met at Auburn Way's bridge to Shaymin Village, Vivian was following Vice, Marissa and Eevee, mistaking them for Dark Fangs. However, after their first initial battle, much to Vivian's embarrassment, that Vice only looks like the Dark Fang Boss: Nero Cresthart, and then promptfully apologized for ambushing them. Vivian looks to Vice as a very good partner. She was even excited to travel with Vice when the party split up to take on two sanctuaries at once. Vivian also entrusted her sister's necklace to him, which was said to strengthen the friendships of those around them. But, Vivian does openly tease Vice at certain instances, while also making fun of his messy, yet spiky hair, and calling him an avid thinker with too much on his mind. Most of the time, Vivian is seen trying to get Vice in an encouraged state of mind, given that Vice is more often than not thinking about the circumstances of what is going, rather than just enjoying what's happening around him. After completing a series of side-quests with Vivian in Namira Village, and while playing as Vivian later in the game to NOT talk to Allan, you can actually pair-up Vice and Vivian in a special scene that is only unlocked via this method. However, canonically Vivian does harbor an immense crush on Allan.
 
Towards Marissa: Even though Marissa was not in Vice's party at the time of her jumping Vice, Marissa's first meeting with Vivian was quite the exciting one. Vivian appears in a cloud of smoke on-top of Krista Harper's house surprising Marissa in the process. When the two first met, Marissa was amazed to see an actual Ninja from Namira Village on their team, and began to ask Vivian about all of her Ninja Techniques in a flurry of questions. Throughout most of the game, though, Vivian and Marissa tend to get along very well. Vivian sees Marissa as a little sister that she is always on the go to protect from harms-way. The last person to be knocked unconscious by Nero's Weavile at Shimmering Mountain was Marissa, to which Vivian swore angrily at Nero and began to fight for Marissa's sake, as she was the last one to be taken to Namira Village. Vivian also tends to relate to Marissa in that she tells Marissa of her sister who passed away, and that she knows how it feels to not have someone by their side at all times when they most need it.
 
Towards Krista: Krista and Vivian do go back quite a bit. Krista first met Vivian when Krista was traveling the Lumia Region with her friend Eren. However, due to a mysterious fog that appeared out of nowhere, Eren disappeared and Krista frantically was sent searching high and low for him. Eventually, Krista passed out exhausted from her constant endeavors and was later rescued by Vivian at Eclipse Mountain. Since then, Vivian took Krista back to her village to recover from her unconscious state, and eventually located her to Lush Prairie to get a real feel for the Lumia Region. Vivian and Krista tend to have a mixed relationship. Often times they are seen getting along very well, and sometimes they are seen teasing each other. An example of which would be in relation to Vivian's disgust towards Krista's crush on her friend Eren. However, they do have high-respect towards each other, and more often than not do try to look out for one another. Vivian was seen later on in the game saving Krista using her Shadow Sneak from her falling off a cliff at Eclipse Mountain, just like how they first met.
 
Quotes

That’s more like it! Now, face the wrath of Vivian Vance! The future savior of the Lumia Region!

Mhmm! Yup, I am the one and only Vivian Vance; sister to the legendary Ninja of Namira Village! Ever since the death of my sister by the hands of Nero, I have been trying to avenge her death, and fulfill my life long mission.

Being on vacation, Krista is on a journey with her friend from the Kalos Region, a young boy who has competed in many league tournaments and prompt-fully failed. However, the boy that she was traveling with disappeared all of sudden, and since then she has been with Vice and crew to stop the Dark Fangs and find her missing friend. Krista is a very open and kind-hearted person, she is very apologetic and incredibly sincere. She has a range of talents that make herself very diverse from the other characters, in that: She is able to utilize HM techniques without having any of her Pokemon knowing them, aside from Surf and Fly. She has unique sensory abilities that allows her to use something akin to the Dex Nav and sense out Pokemon in the grass. Not only that, but she is the only one in the party who possesses a Radiant Ring, which allows her to traverse areas that are thick with Dragon Force without any harm. She is also able to read Braile. She took on the appearance of Serena when she previously lived in the Kalos region, and since then, she has doned her attire, and her appearance. However, later on in the game, she does reveal her real appearance to the group, to show that she wants to make a change for herself and others.
 
Quotes

You are at my place, sleepyhead! It looks like that Dark Fang really beat you up. Marissa was worried sick about you, Vivian and Eevee all this time! Marissa was especially taking care of you while you were out!

Mhm, yup! Fortunately, I was just on my way back from Melodia Hills, and found her just after the battle ended. To which I brought all of you back here to my place.

Being the Keeper of Time, and the chosen one of Dialga, she was asleep for eight-years in the City of the Timeless. She rested alongside her older brother Allan Monochroma, who watched over and protected her in her long stasis to recover the power within the Adamant Orb Fragment that resides on her chest. She tells Vice through telepathy to wake her from her long sleep and ask her to join their journey to find the rest of the Arc Stone Fragments. Hiro can be best described as calm, polite and above all perky. Upon awakening, she says to herself in her head that Vice is like a prince that woke her from her sleep, and then develops a crush on him throughout the game, even though she willing asked him to wake her. Being the Keeper of Time, she is able to utilize Time Related Puzzles that involve the stopping of time. Not only that, she starts out with her Dialga that chose her as the Keeper of Time, and Hiro as its owner.

This isn’t a dream, well… sorta. And, it’s a long story, but… I am glad to finally meet you face-to-face.

The older brother to Hiro Monochroma, Allan is more stoic-like and reserved compared to the rest of the group. Even though he possesses a cold and harsh demeanor, he does care very much about his sister, and will protect her at all costs. Allan is also very vengeful, being another one of the characters to hold a hate-filled grudge against the Dark Fangs, even going so far as to lose his cool to them when at the receiving end of Nero's power. Allan's family was killed by the Dark Fangs as they were forced into conducting research for the Master Ball, and researching the behavior of the Arc Stone. As his family gave up and openly refused to work any more with them, the Dark Fangs killed them in cold blood leaving Hiro and Allan to leave their mansion behind and head towards the City of the Timeless to invoke Dialga's power to change their fate. Realizing that Dialga would not allow such a thing to happen, Dialga offered to adopt itself to Hiro to gain power and overthrow the Dark Fangs and take revenge on all the damage they caused to the Lumia Region, and Hiro's Family. Since then Allan watched over Hiro in her stasis for eight-years in a city where time doesn't flow normally, making so that they did not age throughout those eight-years. Allan is pretty much like Hiro in terms of gameplay, except that he is the only character that possesses perfect IV Pokemon with their best stats, natures and abilities, as he has trained non-stop for eight-whole-years. Not only that, but he is capable of healing his Pokemon passively, as well as the other trainers through constant movement. Allan also possesses Time Reversion, which unlike Hiro's Time Stop, allows him to slow the opponent; this is the case because unlike Hiro, Allan does not possess the Adamant Orb Fragment, and was not chosen by Dialga, which is why he can only use Time Reversion.
 
Quotes

Just shut up for once! You destroyed my life, my family, everything that I once knew! How on earth could you possibly understand, what it feels like to lose all that?! Huh!? You Dark Fangs make me sick!

Nero... I'm going to crush you, the Dark Fangs, EVERYTHING! I'll make you pay for everything you've done!

I have long since closed my eyes from what lies people hold; I now watch over my sister, here in the Ancient City of the Timeless.

... Just what brings you here, to the City of the Timeless? I take it that you are not ordinary trainers to have made it here, just who are you...?

 

 

 
Things That Are In My Game
 
  • Variable Trainer System - You are able to use all 6 of the playable main characters throughout the game. They all utilize their own team of Pokemon and MUST be trained, or else. This script is fundamentally what makes my game what it is, and is the primary aspect of my game's plot, gameplay, and everything! (Unique Script)
  • Day/Night System - This provides a day to night function like most Pokemon fan games nowadays.
  • Encouragement System - This script is complicated and is used in conjunction with the Variable Trainer System, and allows for your Pokemon to get a voice of encouragement from one of the other characters that can boost one of your Pokemon's stats based on unfavorable circumstances. (Unique Script)
  • Jumping - Marissa's exclusive acrobatic abilities used to help navigate otherwise impossible terrain.
  • Multiple Continents to explore - Not like Regions, it is all one region, but separated into four different continents, making this one of the hugest Pokemon games that spans one region! See Region map here:
  • Unlockable Costumes - And no to anyone who thinks that this is Trainer Customization, it is not that. This basically allows for you to unlock pre-set costumes at certain points in the game, along with side quests, and change into them at any point when unlocked.
  • SUPER HUGE SAFARI ZONE! - Basically at the Southern Continent of Lumia, half of the continent is a Safari Zone. That in itself is enormous, and totally explorable.
  • TM Compatibility List - Just like in Gen 6 where there is a list of compatibilites that TM's will have when you are buying them from a vendor at a store.
  • Gen 6 Moves and Abilities - It utilizes the Gen 6 Project and all it's features.
  • Pokemon World Tournament - Just like from Gen 5 BW2 this includes the World Tournament, or as I like to call it: The Battle Colosseum, where you go up the ranks and challenge all the leaders, and Champions! However, the Champions have to be unlocked after you complete certain side-quests.
  • Anime Style Cutscenes - I know what you are also gonna say, "OMG, BUT ISN'T THAT HARD TO DO!?" Yes, and no. If you know the right people, and have the money and want to murder your wallet, than no it is not that hard. There are scenes in the game where there are short 5-10 second long cutscenes of anime stylized animation, and trust me, a lot of them weren't cheap :L My poor wallet OTL
  • Very Secret Thing That I Cannot Actually Mention Yet - It is a secret for the time being. *Puts on shades and casually walks away*
  • EV/IV System - This is for the really anal-retentive people who really love to see their EV's and IV's ;)Wonder Trade - Everybody's favorite its Wonder Tra- oh.
  • Mega Evolution - Who honestly doesn't know what this is? JK, but there is Mega Evolution, and it is awesome.
  • Riding Pokemon - Yup, but only specific Pokemon, i.e. Zebstrika and Gogoat
  • Character Abilities - Yup, this time around the main Characters now have their own abilities that can be used in battle and in the overworld. I have the abilities for the characters listed up above.
  • Vast Postgame - After the main storyline is finished, you have the choice of re-battling the final boss or exploring Lumia for more secrets, side-quests, and Legendary Pokemon that weren't capable of being caught during the main game.
  • Custom Moves - I have created several new original moves with their own new animations, example being Mist Blades for Greninja.
  • 100+ TM's - YUP, even more TM's for you to sink your teeth into!
Things That Aren't Going To Be in My Game
 
  • Multiple Regions - I am not really a huge fan of multiple regions, especially for a story driven Pokemon Game. I mainly wanted the focus to be ON the Lumia Region and the crisis that it is undergoing, having another region added into the game would only get in the way of the plot, and that is what we call in the Writing Industry as "PADDING" and you don't want that for a primarily story driven game focused on the main region of the game.
  • The Usual Pokemon Storyline - I wanted to make a Pokemon game that made you not go through the many things that have already been done with other Pokemon game, instead I wanted mine to feel more like an RPG where you actually stop, listen to your partners talk and let the story unfold, and have a very engaging plot that isn't focused on just getting 8 badges and fighting the Elite Four.
  • Nuzlockeability - I know I probably just alienated a lot of people by saying that, but there is no way that you can nuzlocke this game, given that you CANNOT remove the Signature Main Pokemon of each Character. For example: Vice cannot remove Eevee from his team until you finish all of the post-game content. Vivian cannot remove Shaymin from her party. Hiro cannot remove Dialga, etc. Not only that, but the structure and just the general nature of my game basically makes it impossible to nuzlocke, since my game is also VERY non-traditional.
  • Traditional Pokemon Starter Obtaining - Yeah, basically each character starts out with their own unique Pokemon, such Vice starting out with Eevee. However, he finds the Eevee locked inside of a sealed item box near a grave, so take that for what you will.

Thanks! To be honest, I didn't actually intend to post my game anywhere, else, but apparently, people wanted me to bring this game over here, for some reason o.o

That secret something is a little side-project that is unrelated to my manga, however, it is something that will affect how you will perceive the characters in-game ;) Also, there is a lot more artwork for my game, and I would post more, buuuttt... I dunno. I would have to dig through my art collection for my game, and have to dedicate a section to it on this post, which sounds like a lot of fun, but would be time consuming XD

Oooh, this one looks neeeeeeato as fuck. Will be looking forward to downloading it when the time comes. The sketches and art are amazing. Did you draw those sketches of the villains yourself?

Did I mention this one looks neato? Like, really neato?

I'm just looking at that title screen video and I'm seriously amazed. Reborn is really becoming a happening place for fan games. Now I gotta make decisions which fan games to play. Seriously, like wow. That pretty much puts any title screen GF has created to shame. I haven't read through it all, but I will. And there's a manga...Yes!

Yeah, there are currently more than 1 anime stylized animations for my game. That is just one of about 3 more that are coming out in the next 2 or so months, which are going to be made by the same person. They are mainly used to highlight major parts of the game, like when a new character is introduced or like when *spoilers* happens and then *spoilers* also happen XD And yes, the manga is still being worked on by one of my close friends, who does an amazing job at conveying the game in a manga adaptation. However, pages 4-32 wont be available until summer, because she is currently really busy at the moment ^^;

Oooh, this one looks neeeeeeato as fuck. Will be looking forward to downloading it when the time comes. The sketches and art are amazing. Did you draw those sketches of the villains yourself?

Did I mention this one looks neato? Like, really neato?

Did I draw them? No, I had friends of mine draw them for me ^^; I am not that awesome, especially since they were made by friends of mine who wanted to help support my game. I did a lot of the programming, mapping, and I wrote the entire story for my game.

>I am not that awesome

>Does a lot of the programming, mapping, and writes entire story

You see the contradiction here right? xD Needless to say, good luck on finishing this which will probably be a masterpiece fangame, cuz god damn it looks awesome right now.

Now I need to know how to manage my time in order to play all these fangames. Hmm..

Well, I'm still not that great. If it weren't for my friends, I honestly would've stopped making my game a long time ago. But, this game did go through a heavy revision, especially since 6 months ago, where the game actually looks a lot more graphically appealing, especially in the menu's. Sprites were edited to look more like their canon designs. And I dunno about Masterpiece, because I can already tell that the game will be heavily divided among Pokemon Fans, especially with the character switching and the VERY heavy plot. Like... there are scenes that go on for, and I kid you not, 30 minutes if you actually read it. This gif explains those scenes in a nut-shell:

Well, all I say, I say it from my own opinion: even if the game ends up divided among the fans, that means 50% will love it, which sounds good to me (and I assure you, these proportions are never 50% dislike -50% like, they're usually more like 20% dislike-80% like). I like games with heavy story, and I've been through VERY long cutscenes, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Also it seems you have very good friends, helping you with this game. Congratulations to you all for the progress you've made together!

It might end up that way, but, I am never pleased with my own work, which I guess is the reason why I constantly am delaying my game ^^; And yeah, to put it bluntly, the entire game script, that covers the main story of the game, is 300,000+ words of dialogue, so you can imagine that there is a lot of exposition and talking among characters. Especially since some characters have scenes with others to help develop them more, like with Vivian and Allan having small scenes here and there #shipping XD

Also, side note: How do I make YouTube links into videos, by chance? Like with the anime animation that I have at the top. I just copy/pasted this whole thread from Pokecommunity, so I am kinda confused XD

I'm not sure myself, but I think you had to put youtube video URL [/video*] for it to appear as a video playable in your post, if that's what you mean you want to do. If you want a text to be put in a spoiler (the text will be unreadable until the person reading opens the spoiler, which might save you a lot of space in the OP) you use

text [/spoiler*] . There are others for image URLs ( pic URL[/img*] ) and so on.

All of those without the "*", that I put there so that I could post without the spoiler becoming a, well, spoiler.

Ahh, okay I got it down now, this should be good, hopefully! Now all the videos appear and are a lot more prominent looking in the thread. I really need to get around to heavily revising the main thread. But, the videos showcasing abilities and stuff are now up and running!

I've watched your streams occasionally, can't wait for this game!

Huh? Were you someone who appeared in my chat at some point, like a frequenter or someone random?

Update


SO. The release date for my game has been announced a week or so ago, however, I am going to be moving it back one more week, mainly because I am almost done with eventing the last of this set of Story Events, but I also need to finish eventing some of the NPC's and trainers. However, my amazing friend who does a lot of the concept artwork for my characters, has made another bit of concept art for the Ex-Champion of Lumia - Ariana Marie Valeria.



Ariana's Concept Artwork

Shiro Amakusa's concept artwork


tmp_5838_20151030_163405_11002015542_by_




She was the previous champion of Lumia and was one of the 4 heroes from 8 years prior to this games events. The reasons behind her death is explained very early on in the game, so there is no need for me to describe what happened to her. But, she was also the previous owner for Vice's Eevee.


Shiro Amakusa is Mia Vance's (Vivian's sister who passed away) childhood friend, who joined the Dark Fangs out of envy towards Mia's successes. He joined on the basis that he wanted to prove to everyone that he can be just as good, if not better than Mia, and eventually, him joining the Dark Fangs lead to Mia's untimely death.


Also, in this upcoming beta for my game, there are going to be some sprite placeholders for some characters, until I can get their sprites finished. However, I am planning on getting their placeholders removed, and changed out for their canonical sprite designs, within this extra week. Also, the Summary Screen and some other menu's will be using Custom Made Graphics from my graphic/sprite/concept artist ;) However, I do not know if those custom graphics will be used in the 1st beta.


Also, I have a general question for those who happen to view this post: When would you like me to upload my game? I can guarantee that the game will be extremely playable if I wait another month or two to get some fixes in, however, I cannot guarantee you will get the fullest experience out of the game if I release the game in the next week or two. I hate to keep people waiting, but I hate to have to disappoint some people with being unable to deliver on people's expectations.

My best piece advice for that situation is to make a decision based on where to do what'll be best for you. If you want to get early feedback to make better adjustments, it would be better to release it early (which is a big reason why Reborn released its game in episodes as it wouldn't be nearly as good without it). Generally, I believe holding off to better polish the game will leave much better results...and Rebornians are very patient people (well most of the casuals are). We will wait no matter how long it takes. The only reason I'd be against holding off is if you'll be burned out causing far more delays than the intended release. A polished game will have a much greater impact than a rushed one with quick updates. The tortoise always beats the hair in the end.

I see... well then I will see how much I will get done within this week, and if I can get as much as I planned to get done, finished, then I might end up releasing it early. However, I am not one to really suffer from burnout, mainly because I don't think I could live with the guilt of disappointing more people with delays, as well as my friends being disappointed by my lack of progress. I'm not really someone who is pleased by my own work, the first time around, so I may end up delaying the game, depending on how things go this week.

Jesus. This is probably the most ambitious fan project I've ever seen. I truly hope everything works out.

Heheh ^^; I tend to get that a lot, actually. But, I don't ever quit on projects, mainly because I feel like I would let a lot of my friends down, who have gone out of their ways to help me make this game.

Side note: If anyone has used the Forced Evolution Script in essentials before, could someone tell me how to use it, properly? For some reason, I cannot figure out how to use the thing. I do the script call: pbForceEvo(pokemon) But, I have no idea what I am supposed to ACTUALLY put inside of the parenthesis. I put the Pokemon's name in all caps, like I usually would for a script call, but, is it the Pokemon's dex number, is it their evolution, is it just 1,2? I feel really dumb for asking this, but I am generally confused on this o.e mainly for the lack of examples is why. The majority of the time I get an error, so I am pretty clueless at the moment for how it is supposed to work.
