The Rise of the Lunarbolts has been in progress for quite a while now. I think it was almost a year ago when Darth Equus approached us looking for coders and artists back when we really didn't have any pony games in the pipelines. Since then, we have seen a whole assortment of updates, including sprites, gameplay modifications, and a bunch of neat promised features. Each trailer brings more to the table, in their usual quirky fashion.
Anyway, check out trailer #6 after the break! I really need to finish Pony Fantasy 6 before this comes out..
The artists working on the show have designed some amazing architecture for the ponies of Equestria. From the giant New York parody of Manehattan, to the Minas Tirith style Canterlot hanging off the side of a mountain, it's time to celebrate it, contest style!
We usually run drawing contests, but it's time to break into the 3rd dimension! Your task is to pick a building, city, or landmark that we have seen so far in the show (Sugar Cube Corner, Canterlot, Ect) and build it!
But what materials can you use?
- Sugar Cubes (Example)
- Popsicle Sticks (Example)
- Sand at the beach (Example)
- Gingerbread (Example)
- Cardboard (Example)
- Ect (Example)
What do I win?
We have some prizes this time around too! Shout Factory has given us five of the upcoming Royal Wedding DVD's that are hitting stores on the 7th of August to pass out to the winners. Included in this, someone donated four of the Friendship Express DVD's that will also go to the top four.
What is the Deadline?
Due to the more advanced nature of this one, we will be going all the way until Saturday, August 10th at 12:00 PM PST
That is two and a half weeks, so feel free to take your time on it!
Where do I submit?
Head on past the break for the normal submission information.
1.) And The Rainfall - Zenith (Centuries Since)
2.) Song - Equinomicon (Dusty Love)
3.) MLP FIM "The Farmer"
Mare Do Well was actually pretty cool and I certainly wouldn't mind seeing a side story or something where she makes a dramatic return. After all, the costumes are still out there I assume.
Comic time guys. Click for full!
Pretty simple announcement from the Brony Thank You Fund today. The Hub has gone over the commercial and has approved the script and shooting, which just leaves some enterprising brony somewhere to give them fitting music to set the whole thing to.
Head here for details if you're interested in trying out your stuff. And if you're not, head there anyway, because it's a great chance to see what the commercial the brony community will be airing to thank the Hub and DHX Media for Friendship is Magic will look like.
You have until midnight (EST) of August 2nd to send in your music, so hurry hurry hurry!
Marketwatch has tossed up an article on the six upcoming Gameloft titles, including a small blurb about the Friendship is Magic game. Have a quote:
MY LITTLE PONY : Featuring everyone's favorite characters such as PINKIE PIE and TWILIGHT SPARKLE from the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic animated series, created by Hasbro Studios and currently airing on the The HUB TV Network in the US. Girls and fans of all ages will look forward to building their very own town of Ponyville, while enjoying a series of mini games that are sure to please. - MarketwatchIt sounds like we are going to be building our very own versions of Ponyville. It's unknown just how extensive this will actually be, but I haven't heard anything specific about their marketing towards us, so chances are it will be pretty basic! At least they say fans of all ages, right?
Thanks to Masem for the heads up!
I guess that was inevitable.. Honestly Cadance's mine control is kind of scary. I don't know if I'd want to date a girl that can force ponies to love eachother.
Have some comics!
A few months ago, someone released a full game romhack of Final Fantasy 6. A whole bunch of you checked it out, but I don't think the rest of you realized just how extensive it was! Literally the entire cast has been completely redone as Friendship is Magic characters, with unique dialogue included.
Phoe has started a lets play of the game to show some of this off. Right now she has 13 episodes up. FF6 is a long game, so expect a ton of to dig through! She has sort of dedicated her channel to covering ponified games so far.
You can also download the actual rom and play it yourself here! You will need some form of emulator, be it on your computer, or via an Android phone (My personal favorite for snes games, they work great portable with state saves).
Music Remix: Aquatic Acquaintance - Call upon the Seaponies / Gypsy Bard (FiW) Full Cover by DannyBrony / Appleshake
Seaponies? That's not g4! Ridiculous. Neither is Gypsy Bard though, even if my headcannon places Friendship is Witchcraft in some side universe directly related to Equestria.
We also have some Applejack being... Applejacky, and more Gypsy Bard. Find them all below!
