Welcome at the official Patreon page of Rukhnar, the arguably most ambitious Pokémon-fangame these days, even though it's not even a Pokémon game. It's set in a complete new universe, with new stories, new characters, new places and new ideas. Despite the clear Pokémon vibe it differs boldly in details, so get ready for a whole new experience!

My name is Deniz, and I'm developing Rukhnar with the help of several programmers and artists from all around the globe. I graduated from university in philosophy, political science and pedagogy in southern Germany. 

With your support, I can make sure my development supporters are getting paid. So far, I've been paying them from my private funds, but since I decided to release Rukhnar for free, I created this page to potentially cover up for my costs.

I will regularily update all of my patreons on how I spent the money exactly. Most of it will probably go to a skilled programmer from israel who already did several coding jobs for me, but I am also planning to hire some pixel artists.

Take the tour:



Story synopsis:
Aaron shouldn't have chosen "Unsolicited adventure travels" for his vacation plans. He never reached his holiday destination. Not at all. When the plane got caught in a sudden storm, everything changed. A lightning strike: The formerly crowded plane was suddenly empty. A second bolt: the engines went off. The next thing he could remember was waking up in the burning plane wreck, but this wasn't even the biggest of his problems: Men with red masks were pillaging the luggage, refering to the plane as a "strange, winged metal thing". And they had monsters. Literal monsters. And so did everyone else on the secluded island Aaron crashed into. Where was he? How and why did he get here? And how could he possibly get off an island where the concept of planes is absolutely unknown? There's something cooking ...

Bonus facts:
  1. Rukhnar is beeing developed in German and in English.
  2. It's going to be completely free.
  3. The player may or may not join one of the evil organisations.
  4. Unlike the original Pokémon series, the player takes a huge role in dialogues, which often results in different outcomes.
  5. I'm not a native english speaker soooo ... please forgive me. Don't worry about the game's translation, I have a guy for that.
  6. A (partially) original score written and produced by me.



RISKS: Rukhnar does not inflict any Nintendo trademarks, but I am no legal expert. Nintendo is well-known for shutting down Pokémon-fangames. Even though this is not a Pokémon-game and does not include any names, characters, sprites or audio files of the original series, it does obviously follow a similiar formula. So if Rukhnar still somehow gets shut down by Nintendo, there's nothing I could do about it. I may not be able to refund any donations.

The RPG Maker MV engine isn't the best one out there. Rukhnar had some performance issues in the past. It now does run smoothly on an average PC. However, I cannot guarantee it will actually run well on mobile devices eventually.

Shoot  me a message if there are any questions!

Best regards! :)
