I am working on a visual novel set in Ponyville. The player takes control of a young stallion or mare who recently moved there, and his or her actions move the plot along. It is being written in Ren'Py, and will involve both canon and noncanon characters. I've posted about this project on /co/ quite a few times, but thought it'd be good to have a dedicated thread with which to announce updates.

If you need some graphic work, I'd be willing to help

Holy sweet love of everything that's good in the world, I need this.

I'm a programmer with grand English skills, happy to proofread and error check dialogue as well as potentially being able to help out with programming, although undertaking the programming alone isn't something I can do being in the final year of a university course.

I'm not stupid with Python but it's not my main language either, but I've written a TFTP client with some assistance, if that helps you gauge my capability.

But if there's any way I can help, please let me know because I NEED THIS.
>> No. 23
This is a fantastic idea, though you'd have to be careful with how you handled the canon characters. If you can pull it off though, it would be amazing. I'm related to a college grammar professor, so if you need some proofreading done on the script, I could take it to her for review. Keep us updated on this; I'm anxious to see how your project unfolds.

You have my ear and my hoof ^-^

I can do art, drawing, vectoring stuff like that. I would be able to program if it were another language but I don't know nothing about python...sooo yeah only if you need help though, you seem to be going along nicely :D keep it up brony

Boy howdy am I ever aware of this. My main work on this project right now is attempting to grok the personalities of the main cast.... farthest I've gotten is on Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle, and even for them I don't feel like I've got it quite right.

On the original website, there is a "meet the ponies" section that goes into detail about each of their personalities. I haven't really looked into it, but if you haven't checked it out yet, that might be a good reference. What you have so far looks about right, in my opinion.

I like visual novels, so I hope this can succeed!
Unfortunately I can't help :/ I don't know how to program.
>> No. 101
Fuck yeah, Ren'Py.

I got out of making VNs for a while, but I used to program my own, do the art and backgrounds, etc.
>> No. 238
Awesome, can't wait to see how this will turn out.
Also, I can't believe I haven't heard of Ren'Py before, all I've really known was Blade, and that wasn't too hard to figure out.

Still, wish I could help, but I simply don't have the time to really do much. I'll be hoping this actually gets finished though, it looks interesting.

Couple of my friends are working on background art, and I feel like I finally have a decent grasp of Fluttershy's personality (meaning that I can get back to outlining, IRL permitting).

I know, I'm the other guy. I'm anxiously keeping an eye on your project, looks like it's gonna turn out cool!

By the way, I got suggestions somewhere else of ideas that could work better with your game, maybe I could point them here, if you want... unless this project is just your own thing.

Dohohho.

Awesome idea!

Just one question though- would it be possible to let the player be a female character, too? It shouldn't be that much extra work, just a matter of switching pronouns in some places.

Even if it's a dating sim, I'm sure there are tons of girls- myself included- not to mention male bronies who'd prefer to have a female option available. ;)

Still around. There was some tempestuous stuff in my life recently - even more than usual - but it seems to have cleared up. What's more, I've got some of my custom background back from the artists. So there's that.

What with the discussion about a new dating sim project on Equestria Daily, I'm bucking this for whoever would rather be interested in this non-date-related style of VN.

Very interested in seeing this project get somewhere. The English speaking VN community is still small, and there's only been a modest number of stories which aren't centered around the relationships of fictional characters. So if you're recruiting fans, be sure to post on the Lemma Soft forums. I go by "gekiganwing" there.

Also, if you want to create a game/story about the ponies' relationships, go ahead. Though I recommend making sure it's worksafe, and focused on friendship. (Kind of like how in the Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side games it's possible to get "best friends" endings with the girl characters.)

I've dropped in on Lemma Soft in the past (usually with technical questions).

As for the tone of the story, I haven't yet decided whether to include romantic storyline branches at all. But if I do, I definitely intend for them to be clean. I want this to be something that I'd be comfortable with my 11-year-old sister playing.
>> No. 7690
It shouldn't be, "Are you a boy or are you a girl?". It should be, "Are you a Stallion or a Mare?". Seems more fitting.

Hey Python, I'm curious about your project and i'd like to inquire about it a bit. Do you have an e-mail I can ask you questions about the project at? If you'd prefer to keep it private, you can reach me at mpcupcake1[at]gmail.com

Thanks!

That's Sakuya Morimura from Tokimeki Memorial Girls Side. It's a complex, stat-driven game, so read some English FAQs and prepare to balance the main character's stats. The DS version of TMGS was translated by fans in 2010. Unfortunately, the English patch won't work with a legit import cartridge, but if you're okay with emulation, then you can find at least one way to play it.

Python Tail, if you're reading this, please let the community know if your project is still active. Also, if you're having trouble with writing or programming, then be sure to say so. Some ponies may be able to help you release a demo or a finished version.

Hmm, it has been quite a while since the last update. Unfortunately, when fan-made projects go quiet for multiple months, it usually means they will never be finished...

I think that Gentlecolts' game Love is Magic is still going, but I dunno about the progress of any other FIM-related visual novels or romance games.

If any other fan wants to use Renpy or Novelty Maker, and create stories/games, go for it. You're free to make whatever you want. It will take time and dedication. Be sure to ask people on relevant forums if you have trouble using Renpy or Novelty Maker.

Just in case PT might see this... last time I talked to him, he had been making character psychological profiles, etc...

World-building and compiling information about characters is good. But when it gets in the way of writing and coding... then it can become a problem. Hopefully writing and game design are going well.

If you're still actively working on your project, Python Tail, then please let us know if you need assistance.
