⮝ Explorers ROM Hacking News
⮝ New trailer for Explorers of Skies
by staro in the SkyTemple server
It's been over half a year since the last trailer, I've been working on this since late June, and finally got it all edited up! It spotlights some new features added after update 0.6!
⮝ PikaNiko's hack's update
by PikaNiko in the SkyTemple Discord server
(I am still finding spriter for PMD: Crashing Dimension for making Missingno sprite, please DM me if you are interested)
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Reborn of a Hero and Born of the Best Partner
Plot: A Pichu lived in a small town and always dreamed about exploring uncharted territories and meets a young Starly and Eevee. They go on a journey and eventually become the best of friend. But eventually, Pichu discovered their previous life as the greatest explorer before...
Special Episode 1: Bagon's Lost Bacon (???) (Yeah if Skytemple is possible to modify Special Episode)
PMD: History Museum cancelled and some of the dungeon and feature will be in the game.
- PMD: Explorers of Pixel cancelled and one of the dungeon in game will be in GameBoy style.
- There will be a PMD 99 style dungeon in the game as a reference to PMD 99 (But PMD 99 is not cancelled)
(I got this idea from sleeping (???) )
While I will also make a ROM hack based on Undertale-PMD comic :P

⮝ New version of Exploradores dos céus !
Hello, I'm here again after a long while. Business only seem to worsen for me, and laziness also... well don't worry but It's been going better recently. I mean, there's another project I'm helping with for another hack, but that's besides the point. Since last time chapter 6 was completely done and 7 is basically done too. I also managed to recruit some more help! (If anyone wants to help please contact me ;w;) The current stats are:
- Personality quiz is done
- Chapters 1-6 are complete
- Feet minigame is complete (this was pain)
- Most menus are translated
- Chapter 7 ~80% done
- Chapter 8 in the making already!
- The sprites should all say "Exploradores dos céus" but it might have some sprite jankiness, I'll try to fix later. I don't have plans in translating the "Mystery dungeon" to anything else though, specially since anything besides mystery dungeon sounds incredibly off.
The patch is attached here if you want to try it out! If you want to point out any errors in the translation - or maybe even help me out - come check my server! 🇧🇷
⮝ Moizing accept portrait commission !

⮝ New Community Assets
Animated sprites in this section are animated PNG files. If animated sprites appear to be static images, make sure that your browser supports PNG animation. (Most modern browsers should display them just fine, though.)
