Its been a long time since the last update. I've been struggling a bit with the dialogue engine I'm having less time to work on this, my coding sessions are getting smaller and smaller, and I'm making some ridiculous errors that I shouldn't be making. The engine is pretty much done now except for a few bugs I need to work out. Then I just have to fill it with the text for the story and go hunting for facial expressions for the ponies and enemies to display when they are talking. The next update will include this. Then I will start working on the Corrupted Equestria level. (skipping the Hybrid level because this one sounds so much more fun.)

Update: I have got the engine working and some default dialogue that needs to be tweaked for each pony's personality. I now need pictures. Pictures of ponies.


  1. Woo! Good to see we're close to an update. Can't wait to beat it on Trollestia mode again!

  2. So I've got all the dialogue working and default text for the ponies. Now I just have to tailor the text to each pony's mannerisms. Then I just have to find lots of pictures of ponies with various facial expressions so the talking isn't too boring.

    I've already tried to draw a cartoonized version of the battlecruiser pilot in photoshop and boy do I suck at art! Time to do Selendis and the Swarm Guardian.

    Just a word of warning, they will look very silly.

  3. I'm sure you could find some artist in the fandom willing to help out. (Don't look to me, though!) There's a big overlap with Starcraft fans as well.

    You could always ask Equestria Daily for some publicity and ask for those illustrations. I don't think there's been any publicity at all for this game since back before it had multiple difficulties, outside of one review on Equestria Gaming that was still over a month ago.

    Anyway, take your time, we've got Ten Desires to tide us over for now...

  4. I would just like to tell you that in my opinion this is the best pony game there is. Keep up the good work! I can't wait for the update.
