The Diamond Dogs are at it again! They've kidnapped the main six and have retreated back to their underground abode. Its now up to Spike to venture down into this massive subterranean world where he must explore every nook and cranny, find items (and special gear) to help him on his quest to rescue his friends. But is there more to this story than there seems?

Game style: Metroid/Castlevania/Cave Story

Pretty much you play as Spike and explore a massive underground world (with a few exterior connections). You collect items (and gear) to help you proceed to hard to get locations. Also as you rescue your pony friends they each help you in certain ways throughout the game (Rainbow Dash could be summoned to transport you to a certain location, Fluttershy's calming magic is needed to calm the dark settings of certain rooms for you to progress, Twilight Sparkle's magic is needed to move certain blocks for platforms, etc, etc)

The included screenshot is a very VERY early photoshop rendition. I've only began to sketch out maps (on paper) and to fiddle around with graphics and maybe a bit of coding here and there.

I just wanted to get some opinions while I progressed. This thread may be my game production progression thread :3 so lets get this party started!

Very nice pixel art. There's a bit too much going on in the other layers, though. Fighting an enemy when you can't see Spike half the time would be frustrating. Backgrounds like that could work in rooms with no enemies, like save or puzzle ones. Ones with fighting or platforming would be better off with simpler ones.
>> No. 42195
Someone else suggested that on another forum actually, and I'll agree

this amount of detail is strictly for the clear rooms, with maybe a puzzle or two, but mostly just good clean in-between type of areas

Just thought I'd pitch in a short and simple notice that I'll be posting a huge update near the end of January, and I'll possibly have the next test demo ready by mid March.

I've been super busy on this project for the past few weeks. Reason why I havent done any progress updates is because the stuff I'm working on is stuff I'd like to keep secret for the time being.

Hope you guys are still interested in what I'm cooking ;)

Oh, and I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays. Bring on 2013!

Hey /collab/, how's is going?

I just got home on break and I want to embark on a new project in adobe flash. I already have a thread on /art/, ( I can draw decently, but what I really wanna do is start animating. If you have any experience in flash and can help me out and find people to make a great flash Animated music video with then keep on reading.

If anyone wants to do a group collab of short flash loops or movies synced to music tell me. I'm thinking of a song like this but it's open to debate. If this interests you and you wanna discuss it, email me at [email protected] Thanks a lot for your interest.

Hi I’m Sten Whik, as part of the final year of my degree I am creating a game of my choice and of course that choice is ponies (Though I did have a plan B that involved slightly less ponies). Even though I’ve never posted anything on this site, I have decided to show you my project. This is because I’m testing advertising myself to others as part of my course and also because I like ponies and you like ponies.

A trailer should be embedded somewhere in this post.

My game is planned to be a first person (and hopefully third person) free roam multiplayer. I am making the game with the Unreal Development kit (using the Unreal Engine 3) and thus that is where it got its name. There will be an inventory/customisation system but the content involved will probably be very slim. The free roam environment will be relatively small portions of Ponyville, Sweet Apple Acres and The Everfree Forest. Each portion will have its own optional goals, them being earning bits in Sweet Apple Acres, Trading and acquiring/completing quests in Ponyville and completing quest in The Everfree Forest.

I am meant to do everything in this game myself (Whoever came up with my course is crazy), however I am no musician and I may need the help of one or two in the future. That said I currently have a great (non-Brony )8) musician helping me out.

Please forgive (but still comment on :P) any errors I have made with this post.

All seems to be well with it so far (a few grammar mistakes, but meh). Although Slenderpony doesn't look proper with eye sockets. Seriously good though, and I wish you luck on it.

Does your desktop need ponyfication? Are you getting tired of staring at the same wallpaper all day?

Introducing the Desktop Sisters, the equestrian sun cycle simulator! This program will calculate the sun position at your current location and generate a fitting wallpaper in the style of the ep1 intro. It also updates periodically, so the sun/moon will move during the day - on your desktop!

Get it here:
(windows only)

See the attached image for a sample wallpaper.

Suggestions, bug reports and feedback are welcome!

It works fine, and is very reminiscent of the show (although I accidentally left it as East instead of West, making it nighttime instead of day. that might explain a lot of those "It's daytime at Midnight" posts above). I approve of this.

Since this is where the group got its roots I'm far too compelled to post the casting here as well as answer any questions that prop up. And many thanks to the early adopters who hopped on when this was just a humble ponychan thread where we were barely crawling. At this point we're just learning to walk and could still use the skills of others to help round out the crew to bring this project to completion sooner rather than later.

We can still use some extra animators and rough bg artist.

Hello, I am the founder of EquestrianIndie. I have a VERY small team so far, but we are recruiting for our debut project, a pony dating sim.
What makes this sim stand out? Well, for starters, it's a sim based solely around homosexual relationships. We are creating a very emotional storyline, inspired by great industry games such as Heavy Rain (you won't be running around looking for your young colt named Jason.)

What we're planning on doing is releasing a demo which mainly showcases the programming and storyline. If this demo is well-received, then we will continue with a full version, which we are planning on putting about 40 dateable characters across both arcs (male and female.)

So where do you come in?
We are currently looking for a few people to help us out with the demo. If you help with the demo and do good work, then you will become a part of the full version development team.

What are we looking for?
Currently we are looking for
-Voice Actors

The Sims 3: Ponified is a blog that was created after me and a friend decided to make the Mane Six on The Sims 3 trying our best to match their personalities and looks. We decided to just observe and let them live their lives on their own but never expected it to be so entertaining. So after some thinking, we decided to share it with the world. You can learn more information about the blog by going to the page itself. So check it out here

The blog is very new, I just made the finishing touches yesterday and of course need some viewers. So check it out, you might just enjoy it.

  With the unfortunate cancellation of MLP online, there are now enough public sprites to help make my game. But, do I use someone else's work or continue to use my own. What do I do?
1 post omitted. (Expand)
>> No. 43098
Use your own sprites, without a doubt.

The MLP Online sprites will become the new desktop ponies, from now on every fan project ever will use them.
considering how the MLP Online devs gave the thumbs up and made them public as opposed to the desktop ponies where most people didn't even properly credit the creators let alone get a permission, I guess there's nothing wrong with using them. But what that really means in the end is that even more people will use those instead of doing their own sprite work.

If you want your project to stand out I'm sure it will be WAY better to use your own graphics. Otherwise it will be regarded as "just another one of those games" with the same sprites everybody else is using already. That's my assumption at least.
>> No. 43103
This guy speaks with wisdom. If you truly want your game to stand out, use your own graphics. Don't use bad graphics though. I've seen a game that used their own low quality graphics, and it really showed it off as a bad quality game. I'm sure you're graphics will be fine though.
>> No. 43110
Don't use the sprites directly, use them as an example. The thing the online sprites have is diversity. They have several animations for all 8 directions. Try to come up with your own sprite style and then look at the online sprites to get an example of how the animations should look. Trying to use the show as an example is much more difficult because of the drastically higher resolution.

So I'm starting a project, and I really can't do it alone. I want to fully animate and voice the Fan Fiction "A Precious Rainbow". It's a sequel (Alt. Ending, rather) to "Cupcakes", and is very impressive especially for a sequel to a grimdark. In this story Applejack saves Rainbow Dash after she's already lost her wings and the majority of the story is about her recovery. It's very easy to find with a google search. I don't have much or anything to show right now. I have Flash CS5 now but I haven't made anything in flash in years.

That being said I really want this to be something great.

I want to get voice actors that actually sound recognizably like the mane 6. (I've thought about tweeting the hell out of Tara to see if she could bother the other official VA's into voicing for a fanfic, but I don't see it happening so...)

I could use help with the animation as well. I can handle it myself I think, but it would obviously get done quicker with more help.

I also will not be able to draw the backgrounds. Small stuff I might could do but I don't seem to be able to draw backdrops in the style of MLP. And I really want this to look just like the show.

I'm ready to tackle this and make a BANGIN' fan video that should pluck some heartstrings. Obviously you can respond here as well but if you want to help please message me at [email protected] (Probably not the best Idea but I assume I'm among friends)

(I use caps lock alot)

So this is the second thread for the My Little Colty Rule 63 Fandub project! In case, the title wasn't obvious, we are casting VOICE ACTORS, both Male and Female, to redub full episodes of My Little Pony! We don't need animators, as we'll just put new voices over the show's existing animation.

Currently, we have the Mane Six and Spike cast. We are in the process of casting background characters. In an attempt to keep this Opening Post timeless, you can read through the thread and find out which roles we are currently casting.

We are always looking for editors to help streamline the whole process of combining audio tracks and editing them to fit the audio of the voiceless episodes and then setting that to the HD episode with the audio taken out. All somepony needs for that is some basic editing skills. If you're interested in becoming an editor, or have a question that hasn't been answered in this thread, you can email me about this project at [email protected]

I am Yours Truly, that's my OC's name and what I go by now. I am the director of this project and I will check this thread pretty frequently! Hope to see you in this project!

Hi everypony! ^_^

I am here, once again, to babble about the game that me and my team is constructing. There is an old topic ( ) about this, but there has been made so much progress on it, I really feel like there's need for a clean thread.

The following video is me and Eben (co-admin and lead 3D artist) talking about the entire game, where we're going with it, our ideas for it, etc.

Head on over to our blogspot to read about the game.

Long story short, we're looking for 2D, 3D and Sound Artists.

Quick update: Interaction and quests are now further in development, but we are thinking of rewriting the terrain, due to memory and performance issues. Stand by for more info

We're still searching. Now more specifically for 3D artists. Although we still wont turn down any offer of help.

Updates: The storyline is about 40% finished, and is written by the talented "I'mJustAnotherBrony". You may have heard of him on FiMFiction, as well as other websites.
