Something we always wanted to deliver for Pokémon: Phoenix Rising is a full PC game experience. As a team we’ve all played fan games and loved them. However there was a common theme throughout, and that was a small screen that takes up a small amount of your monitor. Well today we announce a whole new full screen option we name the “Let’s Play Version”! The mode was inspired by Let’s Players who take advantage of the entire screen with elements such as current Pokémon in their party, current location, and so on. We decided we would do something similar. The Let’s Play Mode or “LP Mode” for short, has several features. In the center you have your game screen. So the action is always right in front of you. To each side of your game screen there are multiple GUI elements that aid you in your game, you can see your Party and their current health and status, your registered items and what button each of them are mapped to, your region map and where you’re currently located, and plenty more.
We understand that everyone has different tastes too. So we’re not only adding several themes for you to choose from, we’re even giving you the ability to create and share your own themes with ease. Each theme can also have its own night, and day time option in which you can switch between on the fly. You’ll have a Theme Options menu which you can access easily from the interface where you can customise your options, choose new themes, and more.
