Default Pokemon MMORPG

Hi there,
I am currently in the process of developing a new Pokemon MMORPG using all the original Kanto pokemon, a large chunk of the game has already been programmed. The game is writtein entirely in ActionScript 3 and will be embedded on the browser (so no downloads) and is due to be released within the next few months.

The game uses sprites from fire red and leaf green versions, although the old retro blue/red music is used. The game is programmed and designed entirely from scratch. There will be new towns, cities and areas to explore and possibly "ridable mounts".
Regarding the multiplayer, it will be programmed and written in Node.js and socket.io, there will be trading, pvp battling, competitions you can enter against other players etc.

We currently have 3 people working on the game including myself, but would be nice to have any else who wants to help speed up development.

We are currently looking for anyone from: ActionScript 3.0 programmers, Javascript programmers (specifically Node.js and Socket.io), Web designers/developers, image/logo designers, people with a basic knowledge of photoshop/fireworks or equivalent, spriters. Basically anyone who is interested and wants to help can.

This game is non-profit, any donations received will be used for webhosting and server costs. If you help significantly with the game development you may be appointed an administrative position or possibly paid from any surplus donation funds not needed for server costs.

You can check out the youtube channel if you are interested @PokemonCrisisMMO.

If interested please email to [email protected] stating what you can do.

thanks

Default Pokemon MMORPG

I was just curious as to the development process of the Pokemon MMORPG and what kind of MMORPG it will actually be. Like how long have you developed it? Is it going to be real time MMO or load/refresh type?

Well development has been on and off for a couple of months. Yes it will be real time using the very fast Node.js alongside socket.io. In terms of what it will be:
All towns and cities will be uniquely designed and features, for example you start in a town called "Elm Town" where you begin your journey with professor Oak but you get to experience and explore an entirely diffrent kind of map with different areas, towns and cities to explore, rather than the one you would expect from the series.
There will be a capital city which will be the center of all business and trade,with deparment stores and shops and pvp battle arenas. All the original Kanto pokemon will be obtainable, although some of the rarer pokemon will be "locked" until you have done certain things in the game such as defeating the elite four or filling your pokedex to a certain amount. Other stuff to be added such as possibility of gen 2 pokemon added as well as ridable mounts. There will also be real time trading, pvp battling, competitions and more...
