Hi, fellow artists and creatives!
As many of you may know (because I may have been really annoying with some of you through notes - and sorry about that), my name is Marcelo and I'm making a heavily-inspired-by-Pokémon game.
It's currently called Pixeon
, but it will probably change. It's just because I don't want to post it as a fangame (RIP, Prism and Fusion.
), but I want to share this project with you all.
Pixeon is a monster collecting'n battling experience with a heavy focus on the collecting part. Different creatures trigger different quests, attract different species (and repel others).
Since November of 2016, I've been designing and improving the game's core and peripheral mechanics, writing the GDD and making things work as I wanted them to.
The game will have about 130 monsters and some of them will have different forms. Creatures that migrated from one place to another "evolved" in a different way. Different forms are not different only different colors, but different sprites, different skills, different stats, etc.
The story is made around three parts: The teams, the legendaries and the sidequests. I hope being able to talk about them soon.
This project born after my first session of Pokémon Moon. I was missing a game like the old ones, where each monster was unique and where battling wasn't as important as collecting. When the creatures' rarity was more important than its IVs.
Now that the concepts are ready, I'm looking for people to make this project come true. I'm looking mostly for visual artists able to work with pixel art in the Pokémon DPPT Style and musicians who can compose songs like this one in FRLF or DPPT's style.
Of course, since this is a commercial project, I'll be paying for all your efforts. But I'm posting this here in Deviant Art because here I see WAY more passionate people than in other places (Fiverr, Upwork, etc.). You guys KNOW the Pokémon series, the main inspiration behind this project. Most of you played it and know its pros and cons.
If you have interest in joining this project, please, send me a note with your pricing and how would you be able to contribute to the project.
If you have interest in joining this project, but lack of artistic skills, I'm buying written concepts for creatures
. So, maybe we can make a deal!
If you have no interest in joining it, please, spread this message to artists you know.
If you just want to hit say something asking, criticizing or complimenting something about the project, please, go ahead. I'd love to know what you guys think about it.
The screens above feature sprites made from various artists and since I'm not officially publishing the project, some of them may not want me to add their names here. If you want your name displayed here, please, let me know.
And please, forgive me about my grammar. English isn't my native language, but I'm doing my best to improve it.
