  1. Great...now some of the items from my Grand List of Things Hasbro Won't Let a Brony Do In a Fangame will need to be revised! ...Again... For instance: 8) Sorry, but a scene where Scootaloo rides on Arcee is out of the question. ...I ended up with so many of them, I've had to hide them inside a spoiler tag...
  2. Thanks for sharing this! I remember loving Babar when I was really, really little, but...shoot, I haven't seen it at all since.
  3. I have a few questions for Twilight about your royal guards: 1) You didn't seem to have any royal guards while you were in Ponyville. Why not? If you could afford to build a school of friendship, you must've had enough wealth to make your castle worth burglarizing, so wouldn't guards have been a good idea? 2) I'd have thought that guards being on-duty together would generate a lot of camaraderie, i.e. friendship. And since Friendship is Magic---why can't the royal guards tap into that magic to help protect Equestria, the same way you and your friends have, time and again? 3) Are you upgrading the royal guards' equipment so that they'll be more useful in a crisis?
  4. I'd figured that Jeric had so much else going on that the Letters to Ponies video project got scrapped. I was okay with that; he's human, too, and...well, things come up in life from time to time. Plus, he's already done a lot, and the retrospective was beautiful.
  5. I'm not sure, myself. I haven't seen anything new on his deviantart account. I'll keep an eye on it and post here if there's any news. EDIT: the news is that he and his wife are doing fine---they're under a lot of stress at the moment, but are otherwise okay.
  6. I don't know a lot of details about this, but a popular comic-maker on Devianart named EStories who makes Think Pink recently had a member of his family attempt suicide: https://www.deviantart.com/estories/status/19461835 https://www.deviantart.com/comments/62/19461835/4803704414 Those of you who are religiously inclined, please do pray for him, his family, and the poor family member who attempted it!
  7. I'm not entirely sure what I'll do with these ponies if I'm being honest to balance them out. Maybe FS will still be a glass cannon in the end, but only by virtue of the fact that she's the only one with spread-shots?
  8. It's been a long time since I updated this, but I've been working on this project. For about a year and a half, I was working on adding items to the game. That release was meant to be a quick one---just a way of getting custom enemies to drop items when they die. But then I realized that custom items won't be much use unless I add buffs that you can get from consuming the items. And then I realized that I could have an equipment system that actually shows pixelart of equipped items on your character, if I set things up so that equipped items apply buffs to the characters, and those buffs' animations are carefully synchronized with the character's animations! ...So a classic case of scope creep. Hopefully I can quickly add foundations for another couple of important features before I head to the Whinny City ponycon in 2020: custom abilities for playable characters, and custom attacks for enemies! Once I have the foundations laid, I can add attacks one-by-one and have quicker releases.
  9. :D According the the banner, I'm lively!

  10. Is the fact that I'm making my own MLP fangame too much of a bias on my part? It's a platformer/shmup with RPG elements, and a level editor that lets anyone make their own game with it.
  11. In some ways, I feel like I never grew up---probably partly because I'm not 100% sure of myself, don't really like being independent, never forgot how to have fun, and because I'm still into animation and video games. All that being said, when I graduated from college, two truths hit me like a ton of bricks: 1) Everything changes, even things you wish wouldn't; nothing lasts forever, even things you wish would. 2) Just being a functional adult in society takes a HUGE amount of money, which is why having a job is so important. When those two truths hit me, I felt like I'd hit a major transition-point, and had become an adult.
  12. Ash Ketchum, after seeing what Pikachu can really do! Who's this?
  13. It's Cinderella, during her "rebel" phase. Who's this?
