    And why should we be interested in a years-old hack that's not even good?

    It was just a creepypasta, this is either an in-progress ROM hack (there was a team made to make a ROM hack out of the story ages ago but they never found a coder) or some image splicing.

    Its real game - windows executable file.
    What is so hilarious about notepad?
    Its purpose is proof that I am not posting video.

    I don't understand the point of posting a video for a ROM hack?

    Sure I'm game!
    I won't even take proper precautions like running it on XP in Virtualbox or under Wine in XUbuntu!

    Downloaded, ran. It's a hacked version. Runs well, doesn't ask for Admin privileges, and my AV can't detect any viruses. Thanks for the link.

    A hacked version of what? Is it an emulator with a ROM packaged?

    Technically I suppose so. It just boots up to your sprite in a building. It allows you to walk around and such. Battle using Ghost. Seems like the sprites, and area are from a Pokemon game. I wonder what makes the file so large if it's a Gameboy game. I'm going to remove my link just in case it is a ROM. Gone it seems like.

    A ROM it is. I'm guess he just wrote it wasn't one to save himself.

    Nope, not a ROM. The game is built from the ground up for Windows.

    It's a hacked version of Pokemon Red from the ground up. There's really no point in discussion b/c I'm sure production of the hack has ceased.

    My concern is if it really is JUST a "hacked version of pokemon red", then it wouldn't run on windows...

    Looks like it's not a ROM, it really is recreated for the PC using the same graphics and stuff...
    But seeing as it's such a close copy and uses all the resources and shit I don't think it should be distributed, it's too close to being an actual copy (like distributing ROMs pre-patched).
