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
-Programmers
-Vector Artists
-Scenario Writers

The game is written in Python, and powered by the Ren'Py Visual Novel Engine, which has been used in popular VN games such as Katawa Shoujo, Analogue: A Hate Story, and RE: Alistair.

Be warned that some of the elements this game contains are not canon, and very well may piss off certain hardcore groups of the fandom.

This game is being developed and distributed free-of-charge. Therefore, being an Indie game dev team, there will be no monetary compensation for your work.

If you meet any of these qualifications and are interested, then please email me at
[email protected]

(Please note that if you are against homosexuals, then do not even consider applying.)

I just now stumbled across this thread...

My first question: have you, the EquestrianIndie group, previously created any games or interactive stories? If not, then you may benefit by reducing the scope of your game. Only include a few potential romance options or pairings.

Second, do you want to emphasize story or gameplay? Visual novels tend to be stories with images and occasional choices. You can accurately call your work a dating simulation if you include statistics, schedule management, and perhaps other forms of gameplay.

Third, if you want to portray non-canon relationships, let us know how you'll present them. Do you have a point of view in mind? Are the characters still cartoon ponies, or are you portraying them as humans? What movie or video game rating do you think would be applicable to your game?

Excuse me if I may ask, but are there only going to be homosexual relationships? I am not against homosexuals in any way, but I mean that it seems like that would severely limit the interactivity of the game. I don't mean to offend you, or tell you how to make your game, I just want to get some more information about it.
>> No. 42947
>>42945
Yes, that is correct, and I would like to explain this here before anyone gets any confusion:

The game will feature solely homosexual relationships. This is is no way, shape, or form meant to say that lyras are superior than straights, or the other way around. We're not saying that it's not okay to be straight, we're just trying to do something different than the whole sleu of dating sims with heterosexual relationships.

We want to create not only a very compelling story, but a unique game that people will easily remember.

This sounds like a good idea. I'm interested.
BTW, I sent you an e-mail EquestrianIndie, just wondering if you got it. Anyway, hope to partake in this if possible :)

UPDATE: An amazing amateur DJ named DJ Skorzhe will be doing the music for the game. He has experience in video game music, and we hope you all will like what he's doing for our game. Check out his page here:

Hello, Ville here, giving you all an update towards the status of the game, as well as re-issue the casting call.

The game is proceeding smoothly, we have welcomed some new people to the team, but despite that, we are still needing people. We are still looking for both male and female voice actors who can portray characters from the show, as well as a small handful of new ones and background characters. If you have a good voice and would like to be a part of the team, then e-mail me at [email protected]

We are getting close to a demo release! But before we do that, we're having a closed-beta. Ten ponies will get to play the demo before anypony else and help us find bugs, typos, and generally anything that could make the game less that what we're striving for. We have spots open for 12 more ponies. To be a part of this beta, e-mail me at [email protected], with "Beta Testing" as the subject, with the following information:
-Name (How you want to appear in the credits)
-Gender (Since this game has separate arcs for male and female, we are trying to get an even testing audience)
-Skype Contact (You will be contacted over Skype involving information for the test phase. If you don't have a Skype, then let us know!)

(YOUR INFORMATION WILL NEVER BE SOLD, TRADED, OR GIVEN AWAY. I am the only one who will see this information ever.)

Thanks for your time!

I made a small error in that message. I meant to say that a total of 20 ponies will have access to the beta.

Excuse me, but it's you that's supposed to e-mail them, not the other way around. Otherwise, they have no means to figure out who you are, or find your e-mail address.
