TAITO vs SKULLGIRLSSSSS
I enjoyed animating Eliza’s kneefall and wakeup.
Here’s the animation tied down by @rafaelborven
Open proposal for a Pokemon fangame to be made using Pokemon Essentials/RPG Maker:
SURVIVE AND CLIMB TO THE TOP TO BE KING
You are a trainer from a small village that desires only one thing: to be King of the Mountain. To become the King, you will cross the rugged wilderness, climb to the top of The Mountain, and obtain the legendary crown that lies at the peak.
But there’s one catch: there’s only one Pokemon Center + Pokemart in the world and it’s in your hometown. If you faint, you have to start your journey over from the very beginning.
Can you journey through thick forests, dry deserts, dank caves, freezing mountains, all while managing your supplies and defeating rivals to reach the peak and become the King?
RATION YOUR SUPPLIES
Your partner through the beginning of this journey is Meowth and his trusty skill Pay Day. Explore the areas outside of your village but survive to return home and stock up on supplies so you can journey farther and farther on subsequent runs.
Money will be scarce because no trainers will reward you with it when defeating them. Instead, they will offer Revives, Antidotes, Repels and other useful items. Strong rivals will await you, guarding important gateways but giving you even rarer items such as Ethers, PP Ups, and Full Restores.
Defeating these rivals and bosses will open up shortcuts through areas so subsequent journeys are shorter and unlock better supplies from the starting Pokemart now that their trade routes are open.
RATION YOUR POKEMON
Unlike the traditional games where having strong moves with low PP is ideal, this game design encourages you to keep weaker moves with lots of PP. What kind of playstyle will you adopt? What kind of Pokemon will you want on this journey? Will you keep strong friends and Struggle your way through or Run Away often with Healers to restore yourself?
For an even more heartless style of play, the game engine could be modified so you’re able to throw out any Pokemon in your current party without having to go back to the Pokemon Center. This way your Pokemon are truly disposable weapons and will show to everyone what a cruel monster you are. I don’t know if the Pokemon Essentials/RPG Maker engine can handle that as it is but I’m sure it could be modified to do so.
CONQUER THE MOUNTAIN, CONQUER YOURSELF
Once you reach the summit of The Mountain and obtain the crown, your journey isn’t over yet. To truly be recognized as King, you have to carry the crown back down the mountain and through the wilderness back to your hometown again, all while fighting your rivals who want to stop you at any cause. Fainting anytime during your journey back will send the legendary crown back to the peak, requiring you to start your trek to the top again.
SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE THIS
I’ve presented the bare bones of this game in hopes that someone will try to develop it because it’s too big for me to take on myself. Just the basis of it makes me wonder: what kind of techniques will speed runners develop? Will players naturally play this game Nuzlocke-style just to save time and prevent going all the way back to town? Will players even want to play a non-random roguelike-style game in the Pokemon engine?
There’s only one Pokemon Center and PokeMart at the beginning.
Start with a Meowth with Pay Day.
You get no money from trainers.
If you die, you start from the beginning.
Get to the top of the mountain and back in one go.
If you’re at Anime Expo, come to Artist Alley table D40 and get these Megaten buttons for $3! Unfortunately we don’t have copies of Super Amala Midnight 2 until tomorrow, but tomorrow each copy will come with a free button and a postcard-sized print of SEAT-CRET SLAVE~
I’ll be at AX with these cool people! Hope to see you there!
D39- Alex Ahad/o_8
Also thank you, Karen, for the map!
I’ll be at table D40 together with Black selling Super Amala Midnight: Extra Extreme Extend Edition Vol. 2 and some Megaten related buttons. Come visit and say hi or commission me for a drawing!
SUPER AMALA MIDNIGHT: EXTRA EXTREME EXTEND EDITION is here! Come to AX and get this new 124 page comic of Megaten megagoodness!
Are you ready for the SUPER AMALA MIDNIGHT: EXTRA EXTREME EXTEND EDITION (Volume 2)?! It’s bursting at the seams with 124 pages of Shin Megami Tensei comics! Stories include:
- Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs The Teenage Love
- Soul Hackers: Legend of the Man-itou
- Persona 2: Boundless Suffering (Persona 2: Eternal Punishment)
- Digital Devil Saga 2: Better Luck Next Life
- Mad Salt DeSu (Devil Survivor 1&2)
- Mikado Midnight (Persona 3/Persona 4 Arena/Shin Megami Tensei IV)
- Doctor Demifiend (Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne)
- Amala Network Sleepover (?) 2014 (everything else)
In Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs The Teenage Love, Raidou’s life is turned upside down when a familiar looking high schooler confesses her love to Raidou.
Also in the Devil Summoner universe, in Soul Hackers: Legend of the Man-itou, Nemissa possesses the hacker instead of Hitomi!
If you like seeing the Digital Devil Saga Embryon crew suffer in the real world, then Digital Devil Saga 2: Better Luck Next Life is just for you! Also Sheffield may or may not be wearing pants.
In Persona 2: Boundless Suffering, Maya becomes a silent protagonist and Tatsuya runs around like a madman trying to make sure no one remembers anything, kinda like in a game that wasn’t released on the PSP over here in the West.
If you like the Devil Survivor characters, then man, you’ve got problems. But one of those problems isn’t a lack of comics about them!! In Mad Salt DeSu, Abel is butthurt that he wasn’t invited to last year’s Super Wanton Violence in Amala Midnight Fight Championship. Itching for a battle, he invites his friends to start their own, but everyone else is too busy wasting time on the internet to care.
In Mikado Midnight, Aigis and Elizabeth, on their never-ending quest to free the Persona 3 hero from his fate, jump through the Amala Network and into the world of Shin Megami Tensei IV! And then they make a giant mess and ruin the entire game.
If you want the Demifiend to be your psychiatrist, then you probably need a doctor. AND WOW, HOW CONVENIENT! Doctor Demifiend is here!
In Amala Network Sleepover (?) 2014, everyone in the Shin Megami Tensei universe is invited to a sleepover in the barracks of the Shin Megami Tensei IV samurai, but the Persona 4 crew is too posh to stay in a shitty place like that and kidnap everyone to party at the P4 mansion!
Come get your copy of this 124 page beast for $30 at Anime Expo 2014 this July 3-6 at Artist Alley table number D40! And if you don’t have a copy of the first volume of Super Amala Midnight, we’ll have it in stock at AX also for $30! Or get both books together for a special con price of $50!
Tell your friends! Or don’t tell your friends and then laugh when they don’t get a copy! THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
