So, there’s some big stuff that is going on right now! First of all, the new Alpha is coming around the corner!!!! There’s a lot of work to be done… But it will definitely be worth it!!! I am aware the download link is currently not working for most of you. I will be just updating the Alpha and thus the download link in all one fell swoop. Now onto the cooler stuff
First, Viridian City will be explorable in this upcoming Demo. It is taking a bit more work to get it in, but I am adding a lot of content into it. As I posted on the Facebook page, I’m going to add “the weekend trainer”, as I called him. You will see a guy who is in town only on Monday-Friday. Saturday and Sunday he just doesn’t appear. However, if you talk to him more than once during the week, he will tell you about how he likes to hang out on Route 2 on the weekends. Soooooooo, only after that you will find him on Route 2 during Saturday and Sunday, and you can battle him! If you beat him, his dialogue will update in town as well. This, among other things, will be in the next demo. I want to do some cooler evens to keep you all occupied
In other news, I am going to be adding the “new beginning” to Gen 0 for the next update
I’m doing completely away with the traditional “get talked to by the professor-type person and then start” and I’m going to make it much more like a traditional RPG opening. As for the details, I’m currently keeping them on the DL. However, I have been posting some teaser pictures of maps I will be using in them.
With the coming of the new openings, I also came across another great idea….. Jarod, a fan I have on my Facebook, and I were talking about Gen 0 and tossing ideas around. We were discussing how there’s going to be the Poke’journal, but how the dex entries won’t really be able to be different for Oak and Agatha, given current coding and stuffs. Wellll…… He gave me an awesome idea. Since you can only have one dex entry “per game”, why not make 2 games?
Essentially, I’m going to break Gen 0 up into 2 separate games. One for Oak and one for Agatha. So when you decide who you want to play as, you will do so at the download link. This will also allow for a separate save file for each game, and thus each person.
This helps in many ways:
*I can make the dex entries different, so I can make Sam’s observations different than Agatha’s for more story flavor
*Events will cleaned up a LOT for me since I won’t have to worry about the If you chose Sam/Agatha contingencies for every event.
*This makes the start of the actual game less cluttered, taking out the need to “choose” right away, which player you want.
*It keeps the same style as any Pokemon game with having 2 choices.
*It allows for more freedom of difference between Agatha and Oak’s journey.
**Let’s say Same will reach town ____ before Agatha, but you want the levels of Pokemon the routes to match well. Having diffferent games allows this.
