EVOLLINGS.
Revolutionised Pokemon game.
Graphics won't disappoint.
Bringing some new ideas to a pokemon game
i am aware the pokemon idea is worn out. dont hate me. lol
Story is not in place yet. There will be several stories and missions
Its going to have a mature rating. Making this a darker, cruder version compared to the original pokemon game.
Most things arent linked up and i am aware of MOST OF THE GLITCHES
this demo is just showing my progress.
While it may not seem like much,
i have done heaps. there's alot to make in a pokemon game
and programming its not easy.
Btw Ive used no Engines, ive done everything myself.
**** Its still early in the game, so dont expect every function to work
im still trying to perfect everything, so when it does work, it works well.***

-Player has their own stats
-No Pokeball things, use ur own abilities to tame the creature
-Move teacher. U dont have to keep buying moves u can teach them to
evollings with required abilities (wip)
-Depending on ur loyalty and evollings well-being depends on how well it performs in battle
-You have to feed it to keep strong for battle
-Evollings have personal stats and abilities
-More mature and crude then the original pokemon games
-More evolutions
-Different evolving
-more etc.


*Glitches
-names dont show,
-sheep goes through wall
-some menu functions arent done(not a glitch but yeah)
-doesnt flash when in grass
-many more i cbf naming.

17/11/2007 NEW DEMO
fiLE Size: 14.4 Mb
game download:
Download Evollings.exe

SORRY if the download doesnt work im gunna upload a new link i just cnt atm cuz my net is out of juice. *******



ideas would be very much appreciated. just make sure its not discrimination
tell me what u think aswell.

Note the Other Pokemon game creators. DONT STEAL MY POKEMON!!!!

To be perfectly honest... the idea seems a little bit worn out.
The interface heavily resembles Pokemon, the monsters also resemble creatures of the same art style, to generalize what I'm saying is that you'd know it was a spin-off of Pokemon.

Is there as much demand for this game as there once was? I mean, face the facts, your sprite and artwork is great. If you could twist this game enough so that it's original, I think it can become a hit.

yeah i completely know wat ur saying.
what it comes down to basically is me just wanting to whack in my own ideas
and just some concepts of my friends and i thinkin, what if this and that happened.
i wouldnt be doing this if i wanted to create a completely original
game.
i dont usually draw like that, i thought it would be fun to try and make my own.
so yeah.
the idea is worn out. but hopefully it might have a bit of sucesss.
thanks

My first thought was digimon. But I know your trying to stay off the beating path.
I could write a great storyline for this. *dreaming sigh* Idea's are dripping off my fingers...
Evollings are common creatures, just as a bird can commonly be seen outside. But lately strange things have been going on with them. Some have been heard of to attack people. So the government studied them and decided to release the beta agents. They go around trying to get the Evollings under control.
Some people are highly against the beta's, so their out to try many tricks to make the beta‘s stop. The ones out to get the beta's, called efil, are very mysteries, they seem to know more about evollings then anyone. Some people made up a rumor that they themselves made them. But no one is sure, so it's the beta's mission to find out about the evollings. They were given government equipment to track, trap, and catch the evollings. But will they be able to defeat the efil and find the true reason behind the attack?
Not real storyline
You could write so many stories with just one game...So do you have a storyline yet and are you going to go for more of a pokemon storyline. I'll love to write one more pokemon themed if you ever need a good storyline.
graphics:cute and creepy 8/10
gameplay:easy to use and play 8/10

Who cares that it's like pokemon? At least he's not just making an exact replica. The sprites look awesome, and I'll edit when I play.

EDIT: It's pretty good, but it needs music badly.

yeah thanx guys. highly appreciated.

yeah with the story, im going to make several, and its nothing like pokemon, ur goal isnt to become a master. im going to try to make the game a decent one, ive always felt the pokemon games fell way too short. the government idea is not a bad idea. i really want to grasp the idea of u playing a normal adventure game aswell as having these creatures by ur side, cuz in pokemon its basically about the creatures playing on a very shallow aspiration. so im gunna to include hard puzzles aswell. i know pokemon has puzzles but i want to really make it feel like the adventure part of the game is as much involved as the battling. at this stage the level looks pretty basic but i will make the levels more enriched with habitat and life. so you feel the need to explore. ive got some concepts for several stories,
but i really want to fiddle around before i concrete anything. some minor ideas i had planned was ur sister is sick because the river is intoxicated from the river due to the power plant up stream, evollings are also being intoxicated and taking new hostile forms, endangering everyone. u'll have to eliminate them, stop the power plant from pouring waste into the river, and find a special evolling to heal ur sister before she dies. they'll be many more. im even thinking of what ever u do effects different things in the game. not making it an rpg, but its good to be diverse. and thats how ur good and bad aura will come into play. u can steal money from ppls houses or do bad things which gives u an evil aura which may effect some types of evollings and of course helping ppl out which gives u a good aura. it still seems pretty sketchy this idea. but it would be cool.
but ur right i could write alot of stories. and im planning too. and im not planning to keep it soo g rated. like im not going to goo stupidly explicit with swearing and stupid gorey over the top violence but i want to bring a darkness here and there just to enrich some of the atmosphere, give some story plots deeper meaning.


yeah music is need. it feels a big void. u know a game is complete when u hear the music. but yeah music is the least thing i need to worry about yet. im still programming the battle system and other things. but once i get that done. im sure the game will fall fairly quickly into place.
thanx for ur time guys.

How will the aura effect the evolling? Like what happens if it's good, or bad? Does it get stronger when evil?

As for the stories you posted, they sound good :P But instead of one major plot, it seems like...quests. I'm not saying quests or bad, just pointing that out.

And when your evolling dies - what happens? Do you bury it? Or can it be revived?

The quest idea sounds like fun, and I think I understand the good and bad "aura" as you call. Karma somewhat, right? So basically it's a choose your own story sort of game. There are not many of these around, that I know of. And music is quite important as it gives a bigger connection , but this is just a wip so you don't badly need music yet.

I haven't posted on the GMC for a long time, but I feel I should for this game. I love the concept that you've come up with, and hope that you continue with it, but just some CC, the graphics are nice for some of the main things (characters, evollings, outside of houses) but I'm hoping that you remake some of the sprites for the environment and the inside of the houses as they are a little bland. Also, you should strive to make this as unique as possible, not just a cut/copy/paste of Pokemon but with different monsters and story. The battle system is what needs the most modification in my mind as it's difficult not to think of Pokemon with the current setup. Unfortunately I have no idea how you could do this, but I hope that you can find a way. Also I love how you have branching evolutions, and you should extend upon this idea and stray away from Pokemon's method of merely equipping items and getting different evolutions, but rather have a more stat based and noticeable progression from one evolution branch to another. You should stick with this idea as it is a good one, and as long as you can improve on some aspects of the game it could prove quite enjoyable, good luck!

I don't usually like pokemon, but this is a good start. I liked what your evollites looked like. Very cute :GM7: As for music, yes, you need badly. I am not the best at music, but I could try helping you there, ill send you a sample by PM.

So far:

graphics 6/10 (some seemed not to match, and was blurry)
sounds 3/10 not many at all.
engine 9/10

overall 9/15. Not bad.

Needs work, but is a good start.

NEWS FLASH! You can't get to heaven by your works. No chance. Hopeless. Give up now. No amount of works will get you anywhere, in fact all your efforts have been botched years ago because you already missed perfection the first time you lied, stole, or performed any of those other lovelies.

 

That said, do you want to go to heaven? Not the hellish picture given by cartoons. You know, the nightmarish one where you are renting a cloud and harp? I mean, holy crap, where did that come from? I am talking about a bonafide city, people, designed by God no less. Heck, read John's Revelation 21 if you want details. Getting to heaven is extremely simple, actually, the how and why is spelled out in Paul's letter to the Romans, summarized in Romans 10:9,10. God lived a perfect life and died in your place, covering every one of your mistakes and failures past and future. All you have to do is believe that He did what he said He did and accept the gift. Bam, you're saved. Done deal. Complicated, no? Questions? PM me.

Is that EVEN english?

I dont usually draw like that, i thought it would be fun to try and make my own.
so yeah.
the idea is worn out. but hopefully it might have a bit of succeS.
succes is created by GOOD ORIGINAL WELL-SPRITED/DRAWN PLAYABLE games. Not small pieces of crap that makes you feel "l33t"


Ouch dude :D would like to see you do any better... Anyway...
Your drawings are great... (amazing actually) just ignore the "Not small pieces of crap that makes you feel "l33t"" that people say cause they are just jealous that they have nothing to show for there mouth shooting. It would be good to see this game divert more AWAY from pokemon in the END result rather than nearer to it. RavenCrow will not give a rating yet as this game is still early in developement, but she will keep checking and dont be afraid to ask for help... un-like some people "100michael", others are willing to help or tell you what needs to be done without rubbing your face in it :lol: :huh: good luck

Hmmm my first impresion was this is a cool pokemon game. Looked at the title and was surprised it wasn't a franchise clone.

Game was ok, for a start. The graphics of the monsters remind me of Golden Sun's dijinn. This game in my impression is just a darker, sleeker, edger, pokemon game. And I think that's a good thing. People need to be my orginal and stop with the pokemon clones.

Overall is was cool. Keep it up. Although you might wanna add something to set it a part besides the stuff you mentioned (fusions, being able to have four on four combat, stealing from people, the main charcter is able to throw stuff to help the evlllings out, etc..)

its a pretty good game but it needs a lot more work, it needs
a storyline, a helpfile (or maybe a tutorial part of the game), it needs a save engine, it needs a larger area and it needs a goal in the game like whats the point of playing it if you dont know how to win
but so far its really good keep up the good work

Personally, I still like Pokemon. Up until this point, my problem with all of the Pokemon wanna-bes on this board was that they all used Pokemon graphics and just redid the engine over and over and over again. Thank you for being a little more original. The graphics style is really nice as far as I'm concerned. I hope you continue this game and turn it into something grand. One problem I did run into, however, was that I got locked into my first combat repeatedly and had to Ctrl-Alt-Del to kill the game. Other than that, I like where you're going.

lol sorry its been awhile since ive been on here
so i will reply to everyones posts.
thanks for all ur replies and comments
some ppl have problems with it and i dont even know why lol.
lol and i am aware of the icy bulbasaur.
theres a few things ppl should know im not taking it out on anyone be i have to make it clear.

1. i am not trying to make an entirely original game. if i were, i wouldnt be doing this one.
2. i am making this game for my brother and friends and anyone else that might like pokemon
3. im not a big pokemon fan or anime so i dont give a rats ass what its supposed to look like and what it isnt. im just doing it.
4. im not ripping off characters if i were u would see a red pikachu. lol
5. in saying im not trying to make it an entirely original game i am making it original to the degree i want it to be and different from the typical pokemon game
lol okk yay

i will upgrade the game scenery. seeing as alot of my time is still being put into the whole battle system idea and the inventory.
i was originally gunna create a different type of battle system
where the creatures would be both side on and animated.
but with that many creatures it was appropriate to keep it as the pokemon style.
i phased through several ideas and the pokemon one seemed to keep the idea of it looking not so cheap (due to unanimated creatures). the only reason i couldnt animate each creature is because of the quality and amount of creatures the game would of simply over loaded with sprites.

the good and bad aura relates to the quests and side quests. the idea of the good and bad aura is when a evolling is ready to evolve depending on ur aura it may evolve into a different state. but this doesnt apply to every evolling. its sorta like
evee and a certain evolution stone. i dont know if its full proof yet so im still trialing it.
they'll be many ways to evolve creatures, not just naturally. im also not gunna make it extremely hard to find out. pokemon lacks the excitement of obtaining and using all of the creatures and evolling them and the know how to do so. so u'll be able to aquire info on different creatures.

lol and yes music will be in it. not to worry


with the start of the game u'll be asked some questions to determine what type of evolling suits u. so u'll be able to choose from one of each type: light, dark, water, ice, fire, earth(grass/rock), metal, electric, wind.

each evolling is different to the other as depending on its features depends on what attacks it can do. these are like sub types
so for instance firebri
has subtypes:
fire moves
fury moves
basic moves

rather then just fire /water /grass moves or having alot of main types that are like grass/bug/dark/ wateva, it just gets too messy

anyways this allows u to purchase moves under them catergories
its not exactly original in that sense but it allows the player to feel like each evolling is a bit more diverse. u can add on any type to ur evolling but it will cost alot.

also special evollings can acess a secret set of moves which are deadly. they cost heaps though. some moves though wont be for purchase
also they're will be a laboratory where u'll be able to crossbreed certain evollings to create new ones. they'll be 6 evolling crossbreeders that can be crossbred




im willing to give credit to all the ppl that help with ideas and stuff
i dont mind at all
the more ppl contribute with their ideas on what would be good
the more the game becomes something ppl want to play.
so ppl with on-going, decent contribution will be credited

soo i need an idea on how u obtain/catch evollings
u dont exactly catch them. the idea is sorta that u lure them over so that they have loyality towards u. i cant seem to come up with a decent idea
i had one with apples.
apples contain a chemical that makes them obey u.
but on screen the apple really resembles a pokeball
so yeah.


the game is still at the start there isnt much u can do
AS I SAID its at the start. theres no story, no creatures to battle. few moves

ill post another update up when ive done a considerable amount.
that might be another 3-4 months.
anyways thanks

*14/11/07- Just to let everyone know. i havent abandoned it. its still in progress its just taking a really long time. as for progression im still on the first town but, ive done alot of things such as:
-50 evollings
-more moves
-shops
-objectives
-evolling stats and moves
-more world objects
-you can communicate with others
-the menu
-evollings abilites can be used in effect eg. light ability for dark caves
at this point of time im not ready for an updated demo
because i want all the world functions complete, so hang in there and it wont be too long before theres a newer demo to have a play with.

Wow! This is awesome, geez, this really is good! I think that you should keep going on this, do you what my brilliant idea's to make this a little away from pokemon, I think that you need to seperate this a bit from pokemon, and the name needs working of, but hey, its great!

The engine is smooth and graphics are incredible! ^_^
The menus are very well made, I like the battle system and how you implanted all the attack moves, I think the game will have a lot of replayability when it's finished.

Great job man, I think its's the best pokemon game on this forum, and it will be for very long time.

Just when you go to the sotry line don't make another cry-baby character like Ash 'boo hoo, I lost the battle, mommy hug me...'

Make more serious game out of it than normal pokemon.

Good luck!

lol wats wrong with the name. its the best name i could come up with
without it sounding overtacky or ridiculous.

yeah the story isnt gunna be cry baby like. its more mature.
pokemon appeals to all ages thats why its limited in what it can concieve
im appealing to a more mature audience i guess.

The graphics were amazing! Personaly I think you should keep the look of the world and top down game play and come up with a unique idea instead of making it a pokemon game. :)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


yeah. ive been thinking that for awhile. but i cant quit now. its taken ages to do wat ive been doing and its not that much . and its 6 months of work. although
i will make another game after this in this style will a completely original idea.
i also see how pokemon games here are being pumped out due to a engine created not so long ago so the idea is more and more worn out. its getting harder
for me to present my ideas without someone saying oh its a pokemon game.
dont forget pokemon is just the game-type basis im not trying to replicate any part of that game or story. as i said above pokemon is just the game-type basis.
but thanx ^_^

Even though game's graphics are great for a GM game, I'm not going to download it because I have played Pokemon before.

let everyone make note of this. because this is the arrogent way of most ppl.
who ever said it was exactly like pokemon. the statement made is like saying
i dont want to play another sonic game cuz i know wat its like.lol and dude
dont waste a post telling me ur not going to play it.
Im not creating a clone, if u even bothered to read, u'd gather that pokemon was just the basis. man. some ppl ^_^

Well, I do agree with what you are saying, you cant judge a book by its cover. But let's look at my reasoning why I think (know) its just another Pokemon clone.

1. Pokemon Town) http://www.pkmon.net...ough/LavMap.png
2. Evollings Town) http://i40.photobuck.../preview3-1.jpg
3. Pokemon Fight) http://www.cnn.com/T...nshot.large.jpg
4. Evollings fight) http://i40.photobuck...nd/preview5.jpg
---
P.S - I wouldn't play another platform clone of sonic because:
One: No one can coherently piece it together.
Two: They're never as fun, people always thing "why create when you can innovate"? I think these people are retarded. I would much rather play an original piece of crap than another WWII FPS.

I'm not saying its a bad thing that its a Pokemon clone. I frankly don't care if it is. I bet that Pokemon was where you drew your inspiration. I was just stating that maybe if you put all this time and energy into something original then who knows what you could do. GL on this, the graphics are amazing!

I think that you should not have introduced the game as a game similar to pokemon. You need to come up with a good, original storyline. Make it where the people(humans) in the story can " bond/join" with the Evollings( if you have played Drakengard, this is what I mean). With this, you can make a storyline where the player is seeking revenge( reason for revenge here), and he bonds with the Evollings to be able to get his revenge.

that game is nearly the best that a WIP in this forum can get! ^_^

...but as with all other WIPs it has a few problems...

1. the words are TOO SHAKY i wouldn't be suprized if someon got a seizure from that and it gets a little hard to read if you don't know what it says...

2. FIREBRIs have their levels set too low... they're too easyto knoch out in one shot...

3. You disabled the escape button... anyone who didn't read your post would have two choices...

a. Improperly restart their computer
b. Randomly spam buttons until they eventually end up succeding

...maybe you should tell them the controls in-game in some later version

but overall... 8.932/10

Are you supposed to start with 6 pokemon ?
Also when i try to load my saved game this comes up
-----------------------------------
ERROR in
action number 3
of Draw Event
for object menucontrolller:

Error assigning a background.
--------------------------------------
If i try to ignore it just pops up again.

heres a picture of where i start.
Posted Image

If i go into the house theres just a white floor.
As soon as the game loads I go strait to the spot in the picture no menu(if theres a menu.

fair enough. sorry if i was sorta nasty. i can see you point thats why its harder for me to produce and sell my idea if theyre popping up all over the place. thankyou all.
try not to think oh its a pokemon game so it will have what i think it will have.
im trying to take it abit beyond that normal game. but yeah thankyou. ^_&^


sorry it was a early work in progress
i know theres alot of things wrong.
your just going to have to bare for a while
im almost ready to bring out a better demo.
as u can see from the newest screenshots
it wont be a letdown
sorry if its frustrated you.
thankyou for your time

yes. but what else would i classify it as?
if i didnt say nething i would get even more posts
like urs saying oh its pokemon. im not gunna play this.
it doesnt say pokemon clone.
yes its a pokemon style game
but doesnt mean its gunna have the downfall of a pokemon game.
obviously i dont know what u or anyone else does and doesnt like in a pokemon game. but im creating one that i think would be cool. so unless u have some constructive feed back towards the game. i suggest u stop posting.

Ok, this is my last post I swear, unless you provoke another one. The reason I won't play this, like many other games. Is because the idea is worn-out. I don't put out many games because I hate re-creating what has already been made. I think that if you have this much potential to make a game and pull it off like this then you should be creating instead of innovating, thats all. Tater Tot out!
