Here is something I'm considering working on.

Two on two pony basketball, NBA jam style, with a very arcade gameplay, magic, tricks, and rainboom slamdunks.

Teams as I see them right now :
"Witchcrafts" (TwiPie) : teleportation
"Athlets" (AppleDash) : speed and jump
"Délicatesse" (RariShy) : interception and stun
"Amulets" (TrixCora) : clones, smoke
"Bros" (ShinyMacintosh) : blocking, stamina

Note that no pair has two pony of the same kind, and also that I don't think I'll ever want alicorns in this.

Not actually recruiting, just wanting to have your opinion on this.

I rarely hold grudges.

Joke aside, should elaborate on the style I've chosen, I'd say I have more or less decided to give them something between human anaotmy and "Panty and stocking" proportions.

Seems my stuff isn't very convincing (yet ?)

I get why the anthro thing would throw people off, but basketball is very dependant on bipedism, so I hoped I'd be forgiven.

Well, the project is well on rails anyway, I'll try and keep pushing further.

Interesting idea.
2-2 with fixed teams, though I congratulate on the choice of them and making 2 ponies each, seems poorer than it could be, but I probably can't even imagine the work behind it.

Thanks

Actually a good remark, as we have been questionning this particular design rule.

Multiple reasons have led us to make this choice :
-It would probably be easier to balance the players this way, rather than allowing the players to pick the same overpowered pair over and over
-It allows us to make interesting teams, which can add some color to the game
-It may allow for us to make "team powers" rather than individual skills for each pony

It is also possible that the possibility to dissociate the teams could lead to a deeper gameplay, since it would bring more combinations. We're still in the early stages of development, so it's not set in stone yet, and there is still room for discussion.

We're not quite here just yet, but that's good to know. We'll get back to you as soon as there's anything worth testing.

Anyway, splash screen. Went for a reference to the animaniacs rather than friendship is witchcraft. Not sure if good idea. It's only a name, though.
