Hoenn - Shoal Cave by SirAquakip Hoenn - Shoal Cave by SirAquakip
I was looking at the screenshots again and how they went viral. People really seemed to like them, whether it was being made into a game or not. So since I've only gotten better at spriting (my humble opinion), I thought I'd revisit this mockup project and make some new screenshots! I made this on a livestream and I'm pretty pleased with it, I must say.

This screenshot is of Brendan and his Mawile speaking to an Old Man in Shoal Cave; he is asking Brendan to retrieve some Shoal Salt and Shoal Shells for him. Snorunt is evil.

I hope you enjoy it. This is my favorite one yet. I even updated the Brendan overworld (I wasn't digging the other one). Please tell me what you think!

PLEASE COMMENT!
Please do not steal anything in here. It is all custom and 100% scratch. I made everything here. Do not ask me if you can use them. They are NOT public.

EDIT: I realize the forehead is kinda big looking. I fixed it, but deviantArt is being stupid and won't let me edit the image. So until then, just ignore the forehead ;D

UPDATE!!: I edited the forehead and the...actually I redid the entire head. So I think it looks better now. <3

Favourite place in the game. Love your style. The fact that you have the pokemon with the trainer makes it all the sweeter

I always liked that old man...and Shoal Cave. It's "water changes based on the tides" feature was nifty.

Well the art is not free of use. I don't want people using anything in the picture for their own use. Therefore the tiles/sprites/pixel art is not public.

This is from a while ago, but I just now got around to commenting, sorry haha. But the idea for this game was that we were going to have the movement be pixel-based, rather than tile-based. So even though the tiles are...tiles...the overworld would move based on pixels, meaning it would have an 8-directional movement based system.

It's gonna sound odd because of all the great spritework, but I love the blue text highlighting key items, its such a simple idea but I'd love to see it implemented in a pokemon game.

Everything looks amazing as usual though, I love all the details this time around, like the lighter rock color along the walking path, and the clumps of snow stuck to the wall. Only thing I don't like is that brown cluster...thing, on the ice; above mawile's head and below the batch of 5 icicles. I just do not know what it is, and will probably haunt me in my sleep...

SirAquakip Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I looked at that a lot. It makes sense if i moved the screenshot down like...5 tiles. Because you would then see more of them. They're just the spots on the ice where you can stop, and whatnot.

But I'm glad you like it! This is my favorite by far and I plan to make them much better now, with little details and such. Next up is Fortree City. (;

Awwwww!! Thanks!! I mean, it went viral over the internet a few months back and its still going strong. I saw these all over tumblr and reddit and other forums with thousands and thousands of likes or reblogs, etc.

It's weird that I don't even know how far it could have gone or how many people really want this as a game. I would love to make one, I really would, but I just don't have the manpower to do it. :/

You should find the manpower if you want to do it. I'd volunteer myself if I weren't so inexperienced with programming.

I've tried making my own game using Game Maker once but I got lazy and never finished it lol :iconrazycryplz: Game making takes a lot of time and patience.
All your screenshots makes me think about how the game has developed over the years, especially your 'Route 110' piece! Keep up the great work! :]

It's worth noting that for a vertical cliff like that, the stairs should be longer. Currently it appears as if a ladder-like path provides access to different tiers. It seems that here there is 4 tiles of elevation on the double stairs in the middle, which as a standard means they have 4 tiles of protrusion. Given we view the game from the perspective of the hypotenuse, you'd want to show 6 tiles (approx sqrt(2*4*4)).

In easier terms, you'd want to have another bit of stair tile above the top one and between the top and bottom one, to make it seem natural. I can't tell how the right stairs are affected, but it may be advisable to put one tile more above that one too, just in case. If you're having trouble visualising what I mean, imagine putting stairs from the same height but going to one of the sides; you'll see.

Or. I could be lazy and the stairs could just be really steep ;D
