Braillemon, an audio port of the popular Pokemon Games.
Braillemon is a port of Pokemon, Pokémon Red and Blue, a role-playing video game for Nintendo's Game Boy.
being developed for those with visual impairments or blindness.
Red and Blue are in a third-person view,
overhead perspective and consist of three basic screens:

  1. an overworld, in which the player navigates the main character;
  2. a side-view battle screen;
  3. and a menu interface, in which the player configures his or her Pokémon, items, or gameplay settings.

The player can use his or her Pokémon to battle other Pokémon.
When the player encounters a wild Pokémon
or is challenged by a trainer, the screen switches to a turn-based battle screen that displays the engaged Pokémon.
During battle, the player may select a maneuver for his or her Pokémon to fight using the following moves,

  • use an item
  • switch his or her active Pokémon
  • or attempt to flee.

Pokémon have hit points (HP)

when a Pokémon's HP is reduced to zero, it faints and can no longer battle until it is revived.
Once an enemy Pokémon faints, the player's Pokémon involved in the battle receive a certain number of experience points (EXP).
After accumulating enough EXP, a Pokémon will level up.
The ultimate goal of the game is to capture all 151 creatures.
The game is completely sound based and can be played without even a monitor!
Braillemon is currently in the early stages of development, but it has many testers to ensure the quality of the code.
I hope that in the future Braillemon will be able to communicate with other computers to enable live battles, trading, and the like,
as well as eventually being able to access every region in the Pokemon games!
-I plan on implementing server technology, probably on a subscription or "credits" basis.
The game will be free to play for the single player mode though.
This is because servers are expensive, after all, and this is honestly a huge endeavour.
To comply with copyright laws the final product will require that you have a Pokemon red/blue rom in order to run.
This file is a .gb file and technically in order to have it you must own the game itself.
