⮝ Explorers of Alpha development slowing down
by Mond in the SkyTemple Discord server
Since a few days, I'm starting getting burned out from developing Alpha 2.0 for numerous reasons, and I think it's about time to say stop on my end and to start lowering the pace so I can get the motivation back on the final stretch
At first the update was planned to be released by the end of the year, however lowering the pace implies delayed release. The update is planned to be released, no worries on this matter, but it's very likely to be nowhere near to this fall considering the amount of testing I'll need for it and the stuff still on the to-do list
As a result, no ETA for Alpha 2.0, but you will still receive a couple of updates about my work if I feel the need to show how's the game going 👀
⮝ PMD Retold Chapter 19 - Through The Sea Of Time
⮝ Search of people for RTDX fandub
by TaylorPlayzGamez in the SkyTemple Discord server
Hey, everyone! There's still plenty of time to get your auditions in for my Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX fandub! Lots of roles still need filled, so don't delay! https://www.castingcall.club/projects/pokemon-mystery-dungeon-taylor-s-journey-fandub-of-pokemon-mystery-dungeon-rescue-team-dx
⮝ Update on PMD: Sun Town's
shared by Pazkallan on the team Discern Discord server 2 weeks ago (didn't noticed before)
Time for another update!
Thank you again to those of you that joined in between the first post and now. It’s really great to see all of you guys! Hopefully you’re doing well.
Onto the game development info. I’ve discussed plot and scripting with some of the other members of Team Portal from the Hack Jam, and their feedback has been invaluable. Shoutout to Miju, Filthy, Reapers and Marco, and Max and Espik for answering my questions on occasion about anything else.
Some script-writing has been done as of now. Much of my time over the past month was spent either working on the jam or finishing out strong this semester. Finals are in a couple of weeks, so I expect productivity to go up significantly after that.
That’s, again, all I have to say for now. If you have any questions, ask away! I’ll see you next month with another (hopefully more full) update.
⮝ Info on Explorers of the Unknown
Posted by Espik in the Explorers of the Unknown Discord server
It's been one week since you looked at me since I released Explorers of the Unknown v0.2. And even now, I'm very glad and thankful to everyone who decided to take a look at a silly PMD idea I came up with out of nowhere right before the first game jam. The initial release for the first game jam has over 1,200 downloads! As much as I've always wanted to see my projects get attention, it still feels surreal seeing how much people are interested in what I'm making. And even though this Discord isn't the biggest thing out there, it still makes my heart glad whenever people join. I can't think you guys enough.
I'll also be posting (around weekly) updates to show how much progress I make with EotU v0.3. And trust me, there's gonna be a lot of new stuff with this update. My goal is to release it around mid-late January, but given how off I was with my original estimated release time for this, no guarantees. :P

⮝ The reason behind SkyTemple creation
By capypara in the SkyTemple Discord server
Today marks the second year anniversary that I started to work on SkyTemple.
I would like to once again share the thing that kickstarted me developing SkyTemple: A PMD series by TheGoldCrow, which is based on a D&D campaign and just a blast to watch. I did actually make a scene waaay earlier last year, to fulfill the dream I originally had when I started this: Making cool Machinimas for PMD stuff I enjoy:
Now here we are, almost two years later from when I started working on this.
Thank you everyone! This has gotten way bigger than I ever imagined and it's just so amazing to see what all of you have made in this short time! I can't wait to see what will come next!

⮝ RRT Decompilation progress

⮝ In others news...
⮝ Zelda 64 has been completly decompiled
It looks like hackers at ZRET did good work, and finished reversing the master quest gamecube version of the game ! More info in this Video Games Chronicle article.
For pokémon, there are PRET. They are doing the decompilation of Red Rescue Team.
⮝ Editor's Notes
I added a simple interface for the (just) hacks in my archive (complementing the open directory). If you are aware of hacks not present there, either based on Explorers or not, tell me. Also, be aware that there are some hack that contain reference to lewd content (althought they are hidden with a deployable section in hacks lists).
Did I miss anything? Feel free to open a github issue, contact me on Discord at
