UPDATE:9/15/2009
New thread can be found at last post.
Game is coming along smoothly, expect many more screenshots.



UPDATE:7/10/2009
I am currently working on a tile set for the ground/dirt/grass/water ect.
I will post a SS tonight maybe.



Update:
Name of game is close to being decided.
iMonz - (something something)
Everyone is under the influence that there are shadows and light monsters but that is not guaranteed.

I'm working on a game similar to the "Pokemon Diamond/Pearl" series and was wondering if anyone was interested in this so I could make a decision if I want to continue or not.

Some facts:
It is NOT pokemon.
Battles will be totally different.
Completely new battle system that I created.

ummmm you cannot reuse copywritten material, such as using sprites from the official pokemon games. I hope you understand that.

Other than that. Yes! I'm sure everyone would want a pokemon game.

I am just using the sprites for testing.
Sorry for the misunderstanding but I just google pics/sprites for testing material.
When I get serious about graphics, that is when I will start producing my own material.

Some more info:
there will be "pokemon" creatures that I made up but I have no name for them as of yet.
Any ideas for a name for them all?

I play Pokemon blue/red once a year and its the best and truly are classics, even though I'd never played the others.

No clue about the naming but I'm pretty sure a lot of people will help you out. Hmm...
