Pokemon Amber

Has this game ever been completed? I've seen artwork and posts about it but cant find any download. It looks really cool, I'd love to play it if it exists somewhere

Here is the answer.

So, no. The source was lost.
Hint: There is a search box in the top right. Try it. That post was the first thing besides your post that came up.
I'm still around... kind of.

It turns out that I actually used a lot of the code in the OmniRPG project to get a mockup and the source was available for that. The Pokemon Amber project is essentially dead, but I did look through the code and try to get it up and running. The code was super convoluted and poorly documented, so it would have been difficult to expand upon.

However, it did inspire me to work on an RPG engine (also incomplete) if you are ever feeling motivated! Here's an up-to-date .gif of the example for the project:

You can see the coordinates in the upper right that are on for debugging, and the name input leaves a lot to be desired (in fact, it doesn't even work yet :P)
