Post demo launch update

Hello everyone! We’d like to thank everybody who’s downloaded and commented on our demo; we really appreciate your feedback and we’re glad that you like the game.

We’re happy to announce that development of the game is going well and that you’ll be seeing some changes when the full game comes out. Among those will be the ability to interact with and develop relationships with new characters such as The Great and Powerful Trixie, Soarin, and Braeburn.

We’d also like to announce that we’ll soon be accepting applications for new members to our team. We’ll have open positions for writers, artists, and musicians so if you’re interested in joining us keep an eye out for details in the near future.

Thanks again and Happy Holidays from us at Gentlecolt Collaborations!

  1. Very nice to see that you’re opting for periodic updates (not sure about the others, but unconditional silence does nothing to reassure me). Also good to see you’re open to feedback, and are going to be adding more choices for players in the future.

    I myself may be interested in a position when that time comes, so if you would be able to give us all a tad bit more information on said openings, it would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks again for all your hard work, and keep it up :P

  2. Great game!
    Hope it will be finish this Christmas!
    But may I suggest that some of the pony characters images are low quality, like the part when Fluttershy was sitting down with her two hind legs, that image is not properly accurate because she doesn’t look to pretty nor cute at that part and many more other images of of the mane 6.
    (Most of all Big Mac’s image because he have the slight color texture)
    But seriously it’s a great game I admire your work, hope it will be a blast of perfection when it’s done. :3

    P.S. By the way if you need any help with the dialogs I’m happy to help, I study poetry and journalism.
    I’m not bragging I just want to help, well, love the game.

    May Celestia speed up your work. <3

    • I really cannot complain about the art as I couldn’t do better, but I have noticed many issues in dialog. For example, Luna in particular has particularly poor grammar. So perhaps we could end up working together. I too study poetry as well as being a poet myself. I am also well versed with Shakespearean English to the point that I tutored it.

  3. “Among those will be the ability to interact with and develop relationships with new characters such as The Great and Powerful Trixie, Soarin, and Braeburn.”

    That has to be the best sentence I’ve ever heard.

    Can’t wait for it!

  4. Thanks for the updates! Updating information on this website is always great news for those who are looking forward to the game. I can’t wait!

  5. Thanks for the update, good to see we don’t have to wait months and wonder if the game is dead :D

    Looking foward to it!

  6. Letting a sigh of relief that we’re still getting updates. Played the demo a few times through and cannot wait for the full game!

  7. Годнота, господа. Благодарю за ваш труд.

    This game is awesome. I. Need. MORE.
    I am soooo wanna help, but my english still bad. Аll i can – write some silly stories. D:
    Luna bless you. I am waiting this game. Hope, some warm and cheerful hugs from Mother Russia are acceptable as payment. Thank you for hard work and держите марку.

    За этим всё, with baranka and balalaika. :p

  8. I’m pleasantly surprised to see an news update. I’m glad things are going well, because I am practically bouncing around in anticipation for the new release.

    As for the openings, I am a writer and a coder (albeit a newish one), and would be more than happy to write for this game, or edit the dialogue at the very least. If that’s not what you all are looking for, then that’s also fine. It’s a blessing just knowing that something like this is out there. I know that other fan games are constantly taken down for legal issues, and I would hate to see this one follow the same route.

    If interested in my skills, feel free to contact me.

    As always, your dedicated fan.

  9. Glad to see an update again. We’re all aware this takes time and we’re all eagerly looking forward to the completed result.

    I’m a bit of a game developer myself (Although admittedly I haven’t released a commercial product as of yet.) and have some experience in writing. If you need a helping hand in any of that I’d be glad to offer some assistance. Or if you’d like a sample of my writing or work I could offer that as well.

    Either way, looking forward to what’s in store. I really enjoyed the demo.

  10. Loved the demo (even though it ended too soon for me). Wish you all the best of luck in this venture.
    I’d like to help with the story writing, however I kind of wonder if my abilities would be up to snuff. At any rate I’ll keep my ears to the ground as development progresses.

  11. HOLY CRAP!!! This game is awesome! I would be honored if i could help with the music! I could help with the soundtrack if you wanted to. Cant wait until this game comes out!

  12. Great work, the demo was great and please, please, please add Spitfire at some point, whether it be at launch or in a future update.

  13. Liking it so far.

    The only fly in the ointment as far as I can see is the lack of dialogue options; there is only “hostile” and “friendly options. This bugs me when I there is an obvious need for a middle ground, but you’re forced to choose between to things you don’t want to say.

    Building off the first issue, the character you play as is a little confusing. I’m not sure if the character is supposed to be you, the player, or if the character has a pre-determined personality. It it’s the former, than it can be a little obnoxious when your character acts/reacts in a way you didn’t want them to (reference the party, when you try to shoo off the guys harassing Fluttershy).

    That’s all I’ve got. Nice job, keep the updates coming! If you need a writer, I have a little skill with that.

  14. I would love to be a part of the team that’s bringing this amazing game to life. I am an artist, a composer/musician, and I’m not too shabby when it comes to literature, either. Whether my skills will be utilized or not, I’ll be watching this site like a hawk, regardless. Cheers!

  15. Just played the demo, and I’ve gotta say, I’m simply loving the way this is going!

    In terms of characters, they could be a little more accurate and the interactions with them are a little awkward and odd, but those can be fixed pretty easily. If you need help with characters, such as developing our main hero or keeping the other characters in line with who they are, I’d be happy to help. I’m quite proud of my ability to ‘scan’ characters and place in the right flaws, as well as averting cliches and misconceptions.

    The only other thing is a few more choices in the dialog because at current you have ‘asshole’ and ‘prefect angel’ which makes it hard for the player to truly fit themselves into the role of the hero.

    Otherwise, keep up the brilliant work! Hope to see another update soon.

  16. about to play demo. I wish i could help, I could help with ideas, like for dialouge and such. But I’m not an artist or programmer. And from the way I’m typing this comment, my writing could use some assistance…but i would REALLY like to help however i can!

  17. Best game ever! I highly enjoyed this one with much great art and a great story! One i loved most about this game is that you got to chose what you wanted to say for so many things and it really makes you feel like you are in the game. I have to give this game a 10/10 I give these guys my support and sincerely hope they will finish this game. Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys story games.

  18. It’s looking very well put together, just judging by the demo. The ponies act very in-character and there are only a scant handful of grammatical errors throughout the entire text.

    I can’t wait to see who else boards the love-train. lolz

  19. hey there and thank you for your information – I have definitely picked up something new from right
    here. I did however expertise some technical points using this site, as I experienced to reload the web
    site lots of times previous to I could get it to load properly.
    I had been wondering if your web host is OK?
    Not that I’m complaining, but slow loading instances
    times will often affect your placement in google and could damage your high quality score if
    ads and marketing with Adwords. Well I am adding this
    RSS to my email and could look out for a lot more of your respective interesting content.
    Make sure you update this again very soon.
