    Canterlot Gardens Press Release

    Got some fresh copypasta right here for you. Just finished cooking it all nice and al-dente, and I'm gently drizzling sauce and... i'll stop.

    Canterlot Gardens!? Pixelkitties!? PMV contest!? Oh yes! Sept 28th-30th, Ohio! Also, did we mention contests?

    Equestria Daily: The Game now on iOS

    Cereal has his own game. And now it's on iOS. AND HE'S MAKING ME POST IT.

    Here. J-just TAKE your copypasta.

    I am here to inform you that, after an ENTIRE MONTH of review with Apple's super speedy review process, Equestria Daily: the Game is now on iOS! 

    But that's sort of half of it. AirGlow Labs is also planning on becoming an actual somewhat professional indie game maker people for other people. That means Flash is lame and we'll go to Unity 3D. But the problem is, Unity for mobile is pretty expensive, very expensive actually! Since we would like the pro version of that to make it better for everypony, so it totals to around $2500, to look nice. We have no source of income right now, so we really need this money to get "kickstarted"

    So we have kickstarter to help us:

    It would be the bestest, most fantabulous thing in the world if you could help us on this. Me, and the rest of my team feel video game making is the most fun thing ever. At the same time we entertain and make them smile! We want to make all sorts of games, not just MLP, but we'll will also continue to make pony games, all of which will be for free!! Games ranging from mobile, to desktop, from extremely long adventure games, to simple casual randomness, we want to create it all. So any help on this would really change our lives for the better, I know you bronies can make it happen.

    Groups/Meetups/Guilds Looking for More



    The abqbronies group on rainbowdash.net will be having a simple meet/greet/bowl from 5pm-8pm at Sandia Bowl in Albuquerque.  "You don't have to stay the whole time and you can show up any time you want. during this time we're going to be talking about the show(duh), discussing how future meetings want to be set up, and just hanging out in general. I think that wraps it up, Sandia bowl, this Saturday, 5 to 8. No need to bring anything. Hope to see you all there. If you need any information feel free to contact me."  Topics will include planning where to watch the season finale on The Hub, along with how often we'll meet for social activities during the summer, such as Cliff's, go-karting, and Putt-Putt.  All ages and (dis)abilities welcome; this meetup should be considered kid-and-mom-safe, so leave your R34 at home.
