POTS #1 - 1st : Cubone and the Power Crystal
 

Intro


Instead of working on a full-length hack, I've chosen to do a series of smaller, more compact hacks. This series will be called Pokémon Miniventures, and the first one, Cubone and the Power Crystal is a light-hearted game that sees the player, one of the last remaining Team Rocket members, discover the secrets of a deserted island for eternal power. Oh and a talking Cubone is involved.

Background Story


Last year, a prodigious Pokémon Trainer by the name of Red rose from nowhere and became the Indigo League Champion, taking down Giovanni's evil Team Rocket organisation. You were part of said organisation, but don't believe that because the team has been disbanded you should stop doing what you do best. That all goes wrong, however, when you're discovered. The police pursue you, and you manage to escape until you arrive at Seven Island, where, if all had gone to plan, you would have been home-free.

It seems, however that the bridge that led to your getaway is broken (why does that keep happening to you?). Determined not to go away for life, you (stupidly) jump into the fast-flowing currents and, assuming you had drowned, the police leave. However, after what appears to be days of being pushed and pulled by the seas currents, you find yourself being awoken by a Cubone on a mysterious island, who appears to be trying to communicate with you...


Features

  • A completely different story!
  • Talking Pokémon via the Mystical Bone.
  • A deserted island with a mysterious past.
  • Cubone! (yes that's a feature)
  • Three completely different dungeons complete with bosses and mini-bosses.
  • Mastermind_X's Ruins of Alph puzzle!
  • Time travel!

Closing Word


Thanks for reading so far. Please don't take this hack too seriously, I'm well aware it has some features that are less then believable but hey, it's just for fun. I think that's what's missing from the Hacking community: people aren't trying to make their games fun, they're trying to make them the longest, prettiest, best scripted, deepest storyline'd game and it leads to failure most of the time. Just chill out and make something cool ;D

I like the concept for this idea, seeing that it is a bunch of chapters as opposed to one whole storyline. A very creative idea indeed. I'll be looking forward to seeing more from this series of hacks.

This is a very imaginative and unique project. I think it will play out nicely and the title gives a cozy, warm feel that attracts people the game.

I'm interested in seeing this progress further - well done xD

Dude! This is awesome! Seriously, the idea is great! Can I steal it? o.0
Very, very nice! Loving the story-line, and I honestly can't wait to play this!

By the way, nice thread ^_^

A few screenshots from the first dungeon: when you step on the green buttons, it will open any green doors and close any pink doors. Stepping on the pink buttons with close any green doors and open any pink doors. The idea is to get the key in the chest and proceed onto the next level, to eventually beat the boss and miniboss.

This hack is truly something unique. I have no doubt we'll be seeing some interesting game-play, knowing you.

I hope you finish this mini hack.
