• Nightly Roundup #580

    Don't you love those occasional winter days where the cold weather relents, the sun comes out, and the air is filled with warmth and the smell of fresh earth and renewal? Spring is my favorite season as I find it invigorating to watch the world come alive again after so much dormancy, creating a fresh start for the year. It's a shame that Spring is still a ways off and that it will soon be much colder where I live. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted!

    Talking about Spring, how about we spring into some news? There is actually very little tonight for whatever reason.

    Ponygotchi Game Under Development

    Remember Tamagotchi? I used to be crazy about those things when I was a kid even though I was horrible at taking care of them. Now it looks like some pony fan is taking a crack at letting people raise their own pony in a way very similar to Tamagotchi. While the game itself is still primitive you can still customize your pony and do some various actions! Hopefully with feedback the project can really spread its wings. Take a look at the details below.

    My name is Tassadoul and I’m a student at Hedmark University college in Norway. I study game design and programming. 
    My current personal project is Ponygotchi, a ponyfied version of the tamagotchi games.

    Ponygotchi has all the regular tamagotchi features, like feeding your pony and taking care of it.
    The game also contains a pony creator to make every pony as unique as possible. 
    The three main kingdoms of ponies are present including both genders, and with plenty of colors to choose from.
    Right now the game is in alpha, but I feel the it’s ready to be shown to the public


    The website itself contains the usual stuff; it has a picture, information about the game and current versions.

    We  DC Bronies had a successful 3 in 1 meetup.

    We celebrated the girl with the Princess Celestia Plush's 21st birthday, where cupcakes where had. No drinky drinks though, due to a gentic disease (Wilson's Disease) she has a fragile liver, but opted for the Princess Celestia Plush instead (from her parents) :D

    We exchanged Hearts and Hooves with candies and cards <3

    And we watched the Chinese New Years Parade over a sea of heads :P

    Cloudsdale Congress Seeks Artists

    Cloudsdale Congress Logo

    Misty Morning

    Do you want fame and glory? What better way than to get your art out to
    the masses than on the cover of a convention guide book?

    There is an opportunity RIGHT NOW for one lucky artist to make the cover for the convention book for Cloudsdale Congress, a local-artist focused My Little Pony convention that will be held in Alexandria,
    Virginia March 9-10.  We are looking for a color piece with the dimensions of
    5.5" wide x 8.5" tall (or larger, with this aspect ratio) that has a Cloudsdale/Pegasus-in-the-Clouds theme. If possible, we would like the con OC, Misty Morning (in the above picture), to be on it as well (her cutie mark is a tied scroll).
    The art does not need to be vector – any media is welcome as long as it looks awesome and is printable. Layered over the image, there should be the text "Cloudsdale Congress" and "March 9-10, 2013".
    You may re-use premade art for the cover; as long as we have permission to reprint it, we will accept the entry. 

    If you're the chosen artist, Cloudsdale Congress will feature your art on
    the front cover of its convention booklet, have a free 1/2 page ad of your choice for your works in the convention book,  receive special thanks in the con book and if you wish to participate in artists alley at Cloudsdale Congress, will have a free table available for your works to sell.  If you can not attend, a
    physical copy of our book will be mailed to you. 

    The deadline for entries is 5pm EST on February 15th. To submit entries and/or to ask questions about the contest, please e-mail
    riftwing@gmail.com For more information on Cloudsdale Congress, go to
