First real post. Anyways
The first of the projects being talked about is actually two projects in 1. A Starter Kit for RPG Maker based off the Touhoumon series of Fangames, and a game that will use this kit to produce a game. I shall discuss more about these below.
Touhoumon: RPG Maker XP Starter Kit:
This is an attempt to port over all Touhoumon related stuff from the GBA versions – Moves, Sprites, and anything else possible – and incorporate it into RPG Maker. This is possible only because I am using the Pokemon Starter Kit for RPG Maker XP as a base. It will also come with another Testing map, specific mostly to the Touhoumon Expansion, which will have tutorials that explain how to do certain things in the Touhoumon/Pokemon Starter Kits in RPG Maker, such as setting up simple Trainer Battles, as well as how to establish a functional Lab and Rival. It won’t show, however, how to do things with the scripting language, at least not yet.
Touhoumon: Faith & Prayer Version:
This was an idea I had after I started playing my first Touhoumon game, but only recently began to act on. The game itself is based off of a piece of Fanfiction written by Lone Wolf NEO over at Fanfiction.net called “Touhou Puppet Play ~ A Viewpoint”. However, as it only is a Oneshot, 99% of the game is being thought of and established by me as its Canon – only a few concepts from the story are going to be reoccurring. It’s going to be done in RPG Maker XP, using the Pokemon Essentials Starter Kit as a base, with the Touhoumon Expansion Kit that’s currently in development by me as extra support. The game is nowhere near public release, but I have been uploading videos of my progression with the game to my Youtube account. Such progress is the starting of the Act 0 Intro Cut scene, which is basically the entire Fanfic mentioned above.
I have many plans for F&P Version, such as Multiple Regions, the resurrection of Team Rocket, Magma, and Aqua, and I also plan for it to be less Linear than normal Pokemon games, where it tends to be “Go to Gym, obtain badge, beat Evil organization, repeat”. As it stands, only the Main Plot is advanced by defeating the Evil Organization of the region; the Gyms will become an arbitrary matter, and are completely optional. Gyms will, however, get stronger, and have a larger team, after you do certain things in the plot, as to keep the game balanced. and not have it be a Domination Fest. The Pokemon League in each Region is also a bit changed. Because all the gyms are optional now, this opens up a new way of getting to the Pokemon League. Taken from the Manga, players will have to defeat “x” number of trainers in succession in a sort of “preliminary” stage before they can advance to the Elite 4 Challenge. These trainers will work in the same way as the Elite 4, as you must battle all of them in a row without losing, however instead of 4, there are 8 – all representatives of the Official Gyms of the Regions.
And, yes. Gensokyo will be accessible. It will play a heavy role in the plot of the story.
Yeah, that’s all I have for now. Next post will be me posting pictures and videos of current progression. Till then, stay good Internet.
