DOWNLOAD Sonymon v0.2 *signed* :

Sonymon is a 2d homebrew game made for psp. In sonymon, the player can play in free roam, and story mode. In free roam mode, the player can walk around simply exploring and finding sonymon, the player can also transfer sonymon he or she finds while in free roam to story mode. In story mode the player plays through an epic story about the creation and problem that the sonymon cause.

This is a fairly large homebrew project, and trying to replicate what nintendo did will take some time, but each release will have significant changes so do not forget to come back and check for updates :D (btw when I have time I will compress the eboot of the signed version to make it smaller but right now I am very busy). I hope you guys like this homebrew, it took a lot of effort to develop it this far ;).

I had thought of that idea before and decided this homebrew will be treated as the base and all the other versions will gradually stem off of it.... that is if I deem it worthy of having successors, but as you said that is very far from now ;)
