Fans recreate a Pokemon game for the PC
And now the countdown begins before a Nintendo takeover.
The fan project called Pokemon Uranium is now released for the PC after its 9-year development journey. A fresh take on the Pokemon series, Uranium will feature 150 unique and custom Pokemon, and even a new Pokemon type, the Nuclear Pokemon.
Pokemon Uranium stars the player as a 13-year old adventurer who has to go on an adventure out of necessity, and take on the job of completing the Pokedex while incidentally being the best like no one ever was at the same time. Pokemon Uranium’s world also seems to be at a darker setting than from where the game was inspired from or from actual Pokemon Games as the Nuclear Pokemon types are described as a result of “Radiation seeping from nuclear power plants” which in turn created “feral, corrupt versions of ordinary Pokemon, who won’t listen to a trainer but will attack anything in sight with destructive force“. Interesting new game mechanics also complement the game’s dark tone such as not being able to revive a fainted Pokemon.
Pokemon Uranium is available for free on the PC Platform, and interested players can just head on to the Official Pokemon Uranium forums for the game’s download links.
Also, it will be wise to take note or expect that Nintendo may somehow take action against this project now that it is released, seeing as to how they have taken action against other fan-made creations based on their IPs.
