    Karzahnii Interview: Artist of the Week #1
    Dr. Henry Killinger is planning to do weekly interviews of various artists/musicians/authors in the fandom.  His "pilot" episode is with none other than Karzahnii on Deviant Art.  Check out the copy paste below!


    "Greetings pony fans! My name is Gendid (Also known as Dr. Henry Killinger here, and as Rarity on PF2), and I'm proud to present to you today the very first Artist of the Week! Over the coming months, I plan to highlight members of our community that have given us so much joy and inspiration over the past year! But enough of my plans, let's get to the good stuff! This week's featured artist is named Karzahnii, the creator of the Super Smash Ponies comic! You can find his work here! Karzahnii was also kind enough to provide an interview for the readers of Equestria Daily! Find the download of the interview here. Stay tuned next Sunday for another exiting edition of Artist of the Week! Also, if you know or are an artist who would like to be Artist of the Week, please contact me at gendidlezu@yahoo.com!"

    And with that, I'll see you next week, with artist #2, Arcanus Nox/JunkiesNewb/whateverthehellnamehe'sonnow.

    Retro Apple II Pony Game Coding Contest

    Have some Copypaste:

    The rules are as follows:

    You are to create a MLP:FiM game for Apple II (it may require the Apple IIe, but it MAY NOT require the Apple IIgs), using whatever programming tools you wish. It may be coded from scratch or a ROMhack of an existing Apple II game. You can develop on actual hardware, or using solely emulators.

    The game should be presented as if it were an actual commercial game, released circa 1984 through 1989. The more authentic the 1980s gaming experience, the better. (I'm thinking fake "CRACKED BY RAINB0WDASHER" loading screens, "COPYRIGHT (C) 1982, 1983 HABSRO INC" verbiage, etc.) The game should be submitted as a disk image loadable on an Apple II/IIe emulator.

    The deadline for submission is January 5, 2012 (two days before BroNYCon January 2012).

    The winner of this contest will receive the Apple IIe demonstrated in this video by Purple Tinker and members of her staff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azzTH0slrFA

    They will also receive two (2) Disk ][ disk drives for said Apple IIe.

    They will also have a copy of their game, along with the emulator necessary to play it, sent to Lauren Faust as a gift. She is, after all, a child of the 1980s!

    Let the retro coding begin!

    In the spirit of friendship,

    Purple Tinker
