Default Pokemon Global MORPG (demo now available)

Name: Pokemon Global, PokeGlobal for short
Made with: Java, using the Slick and LWJGL frameworks - this allows us to support Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
Introduction:
Pokemon Global is a fan-made MORPG which is currently being developed. This game will bring an experience similar to that of the original Pokemon games, while adding cool new features, such as online battles and trading. We have further information at our website, http://pokeglobal.u-dev.net and forums, http://pokeglobal.u-dev.net/forums .

Our game is unique among various Pokemon MMOs in that it is still being actively developed. There was an older Pokemon Global, but that is a totally different game, sharing only the name. We began from scratch, without using a premade MMO framework, and we have made rapid progress in the past few weeks. A playable preview release is available on the forums. It is extremely buggy, but still usable. It has:

- Movement on a scrolling map
- Chat
- Pseudo-battles (difficult to explain, but basically it's just the two Pokemon in front of each player's party being displayed)

Media/Previews
In the way of media, we have an older video at http://youtube.com/watch?v=uvukJIVN88w , as well as:


These are OSX screenshots - the game also functions on Windows.

[b]This looks interesting. How can I help?[/i]
We can use some:
- Developers (proficiency or at least moderate knowledge of Java required)
- GUI graphic designers (that is, cursors, buttons, item icons, etc)
- Mappers

Web Resources
http://pokeglobal.u-dev.net - main site, under development for the most part
http://pokeglobal.u-dev.net/forums - forums, growing - check here first, it includes mapping instructions and game download

We're not much compared to some other projects right now, but we're moving fast and showing some promise.

You'll find it's pretty buggy, I think. It's a very new project OpenGL accel is probably going to be very helpful speed-wise.

Just wanted to chime in with an update. We have a mapping tutorial available at http://pokeglobal.sf.net/mapedit , if you're interested in doing that.

We've put out a new release at http://pokeglobal.sf.net/game/client.jnlp .
