Just a little project I've been working on

https://github.com/Helios-vmg/cppred/

It's a complete reimplementation in C++ of Pokemon gen. 1 (the original was written in Assembly).
Currently only the opening sequence and the introduction up to just before entering the level are implemented. I just finished the audio system a few days ago (it was a major PITA).

Obligatory link to previous work: https://github.com/pret/pokered
That's a complete disassembly of the Red and Blue ROMs with comments and variable names. Amazing effort from those guys. That work represents at least 2/3 of the work required for this project.

EDIT: I forgot to mention the key bindings.
Arrows: D-pad
Z: A
X: B
A: Start
S: Select
Escape: show menu with various options

Wow! What a fun project! Can you link to a gif of what you have so far?
There's a Windows build available in the releases section of the project page, and build instructions for other systems.
Afraid I've only got osx at the moment, running the build script errors, I'm not sure it's worth either of our time to debug, but I'd love to see what you have so far!
