Pokemon GO field test has expanded to the US and sign-ups to become a field tester are now on-going on the game’s official site. While waiting for the chance to play the final version of the much-awaited augmented reality game, you can check out the fan-made game, Pokemon Apex.
Pokemon Apex was created with the adult Pokemon fans in mind. Unlike the original Pokemon games, Pokemon Apex is not safe for all ages because of its mature view of the Pokemon universe. It leans more into the real world with its characters and tackled issues, wrote Inquisitr.
According to the description on the Tumblr devlog of Pokemon Apex game developer Nate:
“Pokémon Apex is developed with an adult Pokémon fan in mind. The game contains some adult dialogue (some swearing) and themes (death, abandonment), and some minor horror elements. Furthermore, the game is intended to be somewhat difficult, meaning that you will need to think about your strategies and make conscientious choices about your team in order to progress. Playing through the game haphazardly will get you into trouble.”
Kotaku wrote that Pokemon Apex is the game for people who have the patience to explore the environment and discover the small details hidden all through the game.
The story starts with the player living as a high school kid in the metropolitan Nascene City whose daily routine includes playing video games and hanging out with friends. Then one day, the kid is transported magically to another world where powerful demons called “Pokemon” and a cult whose aim is to destroy both worlds, reside.
The game has been overhauled, reported Kotaku.
“There is still monster battling, but the structure has been altered: starters don’t adhere to current types, progression is based on unlocking new areas, there are no gyms, there are multiple storylines and “many sidequests” as well.”
Pokemon Apex which was started December 2014 is still in development stage but the alpha is now available for download here. Try it to know the difference.
