Ever heard of Pokemon Creepy Black? A ROM hack of Pokemon Red intended to turn the whimsical action RPG into a horror game, it’s being made by a group working at Project Creepy Black with help from more volunteers entranced by the original creepypasta (Google it or read it in the Creepypasta forums here. (A similar story concerns a creeped-out version of Pokemon silver watchable here)
Here’s the story from TinyCartridge.com.
Inspired by the (most likely fictional) tale we posted a week ago about the “super creepy Pokémon hack”, a group of ROM hackers are trying to create a patch that will mimic the mechanics of the haunted bootleg.
The team is making the patch for Pokémon FireRed and not just Red, so you won’t be able to play this on an old school Game Boy, as in the original story. From what I can tell, the group wants to make two versions — one that stays true to what was described in the “super creepy Pokémon hack” post, and another that’s inspired by the story but incorporates some creative additions.
If you know anything about scripting or programming, feel free to lend a hand! Hopefully, this project will actually see completion (unlike 95 percent of most other homebrew projects), so people can burn the patched game to flashcarts and leave them lying around flea markets/thrift stores/garage sales/etc for kids to discover.
Now, even we creepypasta fans have to admit that there are a number of people who prefer their Pokemon more traditional and so this note on our collection of action figures and collectibles applies to them (though we’d like to combine our Poke-pals with the Resident Evil figures, maybe, and see what ensues. But for now, take a look at this collection of very un-scary Pokemon items!
