Dawkemon is a text-based RPG Adventure akin to Pokemon. Battle your Evomemes and save the world from destruction!

The game is light on content, but completely playable. Roughly 85% of my intended mechanics made it into the game! The biggest thing I didn't get to was the ability to capture more Evomemes, and breed them.

I'll probably continue this over the coming month or two (I know I always say that, but this time for real!) and do something fun with the final project.

To Download the entire source .zip file, go to File (Top-Left) and then Download. Or press Ctrl + S. Probably does not work in Python 3... have not tested. Let me know if there are any problems getting it to run! Enjoy!

Are there any more rooms than the four test chambers in the lab? Because I could not find them; it was very hard to stay oriented without directional clues (like "to the west there is a door that leads outside"), relying only on the cardinal directions apparent from the menu. I also encountered 2 game-ending, unwinnable fights withing the first four rooms, which is not the way that 'fun' is usually spelled :(

A hint at which of the numerous .py-files runs the actual game ( would have been a nice gesture, too.

Nope, four rooms is what I got done! Too much mechanics, not enough content. Same answer for the directional clues, basicly: When it's fleshed out it'll have much more detailed descriptions, but I just needed something fast for testing purposes. The fights aren't unwinable, though! I've seen people beat the random dude easily... just takes a little luck the first time. Dawkins has 3 level 5 dudes, though, so you'd have to level up a fair bit before you could beat him.
Thank you very much for the feedback! It's always so stressful coming back to look at my page and seeing nothing! I get worried that nobody's even looking at it.

Try compiling it, not everyone has python (or wants to download).

Lost against the random level 2 starter dude a few times, couldn't get past that. Interesting engine, just wish you had more time for content!
