    The Russian fandom has released some awesome stuff over the years, with animation projects and games being some of the best. A recent contest over there called TOKI in the game design category brought in 16 different contestants. They've compiled up all the games and put them into one big trailer to show it off. Head on down below the break to check them out!




    Game descriptions from their Readmes:


    The World of Castles (Demo)

    Genre: 菩厦, (the open world)
    Engine: RPG Maker VX Ace
    About the game: Are you an adventurer, but were they only in their dreams? You have the ideal opportunity to show your heroic strength and ability to save the whole kingdom from the riotous crystal miners! You have a lot to travel, visit a lot of castles, after all ...

    Through the nightmare

    Genre: JRPG
    Engine: RPG Maker MV
    Description: Two unicorns wake up in a mysterious starry place. Help them go through this adventure.


    Game #3

    In Equestria there is one independent SCAN organization (Secret Canterlot Astronomical Research Base) task, which consists in the exploration of near space.
    Scientists from SCAN decided to arrange an expedition to the Moon in order to learn more about it and see their world from the outside. And the expedition took place, however they saw the truth that all those years were unavailable to anyone. The sun does not rotate. They stayed there for about 2 days specifically to check it and saw that the sun had never moved, although it had to move. Moved only their planet around the sun. The scientists decided that it was unfair to break this truth from everyone.
    Returning to Equestria, they immediately told this to all Canterlotians, proving their words by recording the cameras. Soon this information spread very quickly, but insurrections and revolts were not yet as not everyone considered it to be true, so Celestia was not aware of all this. And yet at one point all the ex-Etritsi were divided into 2 factions, respectively:
    Sparks. In this faction, almost all unicorns who continued to believe in the power of alicorns were hit.
    Raisers. This fraction included all pegasus and ground-ponies, as well as a small part of unicorns. If some unicorns questioned the power of alicorns, then pegasus and terrestrial ponies always did not particularly believe in this power, and indeed the magic of the whole.
    So during the game you have to watch these two factions from the side of one unicorn, because of which all this happened.

    The text font in some places differs from the initial one. It is desirable to play this game on Windows 32-bit.

    Trixie vs arcade game

    Trixie vs arcade game is a small collection of mini-games, so to speak, a tribute to the games of the 80/90-ies. It is created, like all my crafts, with the help of Construct Classic designer, sprites, like music with sounds, are taken from everywhere.
    In general, the game has no plot, only the gameplay, tied to the stuffing of points. The game still has a number of bugs, but they are not critical and, I hope, none of them will prevent you from trying and evaluating this game.
    The game has a certain amount of hidden content, which can be called "Easter eggs" and if some are in sight, others will have to be searched. And something has a double bottom =). Of course, on the gameplay video, I did not show any of this, because it's much more interesting to find the hidden one myself.
    Since the game contains content content of content and can bring discomfort to subtly sensing natures, the will of the creator, I assign this rating to the game 18+. This means that the game is not recommended for people under 18 years old, as well as individuals without a sense of humor and irony.
    The control is primitive, tied to the movement keys [W] [A] [S] [D] and, if necessary, the action key [left arrow] (this means "left arrow"). And you can not not write to me that the management is not right and not convenient, I will stay with my opinion.
    The game was tested for XP wines, 7, 8 and 10, I did not have any problems, in fact, only one gigabyte of RAM and 128 megabytes of video card (the minimum I tested). The only requirement, should be on the computer DirectX from the ninth version and above, but I think that this will not be anyone's problem.


    Adventure of Everfree

    Equality

    2. Shooter with elements of horror.
    3. Unreal Engine 4.17.1

    Description: a la game for a survivalist shooter from the first person where you have to last a living as long as possible and earn as many points as possible for killing enemies and for selectable bonuses

    The plot (history, whatever you want to call it): yy one of the inhabitants of the village starlayt living in it for a long time, obeying the rules and equality, but even in equality there are violations at one point the inhabitants of this village began to disappear and yy notes this and hides, frightened for what and he may disappear and one day he decided to get out of his hiding place to see what was happening in the village and finds out that the city is empty by everywhere dead residents, cages, boxes and go disfigured and almost dead ponies
    With horror realizing where the inhabitants disappeared and the fact that he was discovered he does not have more choices he runs into his hide, he has enough weapons and goes to the right death because he understands that he can not be saved

    Cartridges and hilts are scattered in the zone of the first 3 houses.
    All the standard things for a shooter are. Running too.

    I will clarify in advance - the graphics are raw, the monster is one and boring, there is no statistics, the models are boring to disgrace, the balance is wild, everyone will go for Windows (Vista, no less). On older computers, there may be problems with the drivers (mainly AMD (16 driver version is required).
    Most likely it will start with ULTRA graphics settings, so wait for the lag even in the main menu.
    Still come across zamgovannye boxes with cartridges in which there is nothing and they do not disappear (as a result - there are no cartridges). On the mountain I do not advise to climb for 2 reasons - shooting is purely horizontal and the game zone goes around the houses.
