Pokey's Adventure (New story)

Link Thread Closed
I'm going to lock this until WYE actually gets something to show off (as he stated before, he does not want this thread to be bumped until he really gets something new regarding this hack). So yeah, this is temporaly locked now.
Reopened because I can. :3

I decided to post a few screens again. Not sure why I'm not showing this in the C3 forum, but eh.


Amapola Waterfall is now finished!


The last part of the level.


Random screen.


Bullet Bill alert!


This is Lemmy's Tower, the last level of world 2. Finished? Not yet.
Also, I'm trying to sue more custom sprites. Nippy-yay.


How do you get here?


Another random screen, except it's the last one you get (for now, at least).

Feedback would be nice, as always.




And now for something more important: Since many people complained about the contradictory plot (and I wasn't too fond of it myself either), I thought I could let you decide the plot!
Well, not decide it, but I'd like you to suggest some storylines that make sense, and after some time, I'll choose the one I like best. Only conditon: It must have something to do with Pokey's brothers being kidnapped - I don't feel like redoing the story completely. ;)

I'm probably not that motivated to work on it if the story stuff isn't out of my mind, so I'm waiting for your suggestions. ;)


 
woohoo!!!an update on pokey's adventure,finally!!!anyway,the new screens look good!as for a new plot...

pokey was on a walk for water for his little brothers.but when he came back,his brothers where gone!he then saw a note saying:dear pokey,i have kidnapped your brothers!if you want to save them,pay me ransom!

yoursa truly,???.

"so my brothers where kidnapped?" pokey's adventure starts now...

and from there,i don't know anything anymore.
I really can't say anything bad about these screen shots so.... good job. As I mentioned earlier, your graphical consistencies are outstanding and the idea of playing as pokey is great. Your levels themselves vary greatly from waterfalls to deserts to ghost houses. I applaud you Wye.
Pokey's a plant, so it would be easy to tie in something ecological/environmental into this hack's story (e.g. Bowser's war industry has poisoned what little water was left in Pokey's desert home; meanwhile, his brothers have been kidnapped for use in Bowser's army). Just some random ideas at 11 p.m.

[?] Miscellaneous Helpful Hints
If I moderated your hack, there was apparently a 90 percent chance it was rejected.

That story is an epic win. Pokey finds water. Bowser kidnaps bros to use in his army. Pokey must get them back!
Nice and all, but as Hach said - why would Bowser kidnap the brothers of someone who works for him? I'd like to have a new villain who actually has a reason to do this.

I actually came up with the basics of a new story, but I'm not quite sure if it's good or not. This is what I currently have:
Someone (I have not yet decided who) is jealous of Bowser's fame and wants to build up his own "empire". However, as he doesn't have enough troops to do that, he decides to kidnap some of Bowser's ones. Since all adult Pokeys are somewhere else, trying to stop Mario, and left the younger Pokeys at home, he could easily kidnap them. When Pokey returns, he finds that his brothers were gone etc.
There's just one problem: Why would this new villain lock Pokey's brothers up in seven towers when he actually wants to use them for his army?

I'd like to hear some opinions and/or suggestions on the story. Of course, if you have a completely different idea, I'm still open to suggestions. ;)


 
Maybe the pokey's brothers were like elite pokeys, and the new villain is holding them for ransom.
I know: The koopa kids, jealous of pokey as bowser liked him more, each kidnap one of pokey's brothers and place a fake note from bowser. They want pokey to betray bowser and go after him to find his brothers. Once he does he wont be bowsers favorite anymore and the koopa kids will once again be the top in bowser's army.

The villain will mind control them when Pokey comes to the tower, so Pokey has to fight his relatives.
I guess i might work? but why would thay hypnotise him to fight the pokeys and not iggy and co.
Mario kidnaps them?

It would work if you could edit the Koopa Kid and Bowser graphics. And it'd actually make some sense.

Like:
Pokey was on a hike. When he came back to his home, he found a note.
"Dear Pokey the Pokey,
I have a proposal. I want to destroy Bowser forever but it's too dang hard for me only and all my friends are kinda lame at fighting. You'll get to join my army... on one condition. I have captured your 7 children. They are kept safe in the 7 towers I made for this purpose only. You can think this as a test: get your children free and defeat me. If you're able to do that, you're probably good enough to be on my army."


It'd kind of make sense for a Pokey to be good. There are good Koopas, Shyguys, Goombas etc. so why not Pokeys too?
Vah'Neela's Mansion coming soon.
A friend of pokey said that bowser have build the subzero lazer, to make the desert a icelands and bowser know that mario pass on the desert and bowser(think) that mario can't pass.

Pokey realise now that bowser is a bad guy and want to stop it for the sake of is desert!
Pokey's seven brothers are guardians of the sacred oasis, containing the purist water that could revitalize the most worn out of souls. The source of the water comes from the *mystical name here* fountain. Pokey himself is not yet a guardian. He has lived in agony his entire life, wishing to help his brothers guard the fountain but feeling like an outcast because he has not yet come of age. The day in which he becomes a guardian, however, is tomorrow and he couldn't be more hyped.

But wait! Bowser hears of this oasis and comes to visit. "Bwahaha!" he says, "If I can obtain the *mystical name here* fountain, the oasis will be all mine and using my *insert evil machine here*, I can use it to flood any part of the world I don't like!" He defeats every one of the guardians and takes the fountain for himself, not knowing of Pokey.

So the plot becomes obvious after that. This is, of course, assuming the Pokeys are independent of Bowser.

Edit: Or it could be a completely different villain, which would allow them to work for Bowser.
if your making the tower then the bar thing should be more than 30%
You should make the mushroom a miracle grow bag.
Check out my YouTube channel (DubbsYoshi).
Or a pokey segment.
Personally I always think that the player should not be able to swim up in the waterfalls, they maybe must act like "Movement block down slow".
I don't think I'm going to change the mushroom - it works well, and anything else would look a little weird IMO.
(Nie idea with the movement blocks, though.)


 
Maybe Make Pokey's Sibling Or Prents Get Kidnapped By Bowser And Have to Get them Back :D
