Ergosphere

Ergosphere, developed by SingularMJ, is an neat 3D third-person hack n' slash/platformer, in which you are following the unicorn Horizon, a self-proclaimed researcher as she explores the ruins of an ancient civilization in search of powerful ancient artifacts.

Or at least that's what she planned to do. As she moves deeper into the ruins, she meets her eventual companion Ashes, a phoenix who serves as something of a guardian of the place. Ashes explains the history of her society -- including the existence of Trials, important events meant to test the mettle of any who rose to the challenge, and what led their civilization to ruin... having fallen at the hooves of the Trial's most celebrated and capable champion.
Tempted by greed and the promise of power by a force referred to as the Shadows, under the champion's rule the land, and most of those in it, were overrun by the evil creatures created by this force. Ashes manages to seal herself, the most powerful of the artefacts, and the spreading corruption away... until the seal unexpectedly breaks just in time for Horizon to come along. As a new Trial begins, Horizon will have to hack, slash, explore and dash her way through the ruins, collect the artifacts and (hopefully once she's done getting a good look at them!) stop the spread of the corruption once and for all.

One of the more interesting aspects of this game, next to the magically-infused combo-heavy combat system, is that large parts of the ruins are procedurally generated! A good example of it in action is actually right at the beginning of the game, which has a somewhat long platforming sequence that is completely different every time. Certainly keeps things interesting after losing all your lives!

Dream Studio's "Fallout Equestria: The Rise of Heroes" Animation


The seemingly endless Fallout: Equestria content train is still running strong! Dream Studios, a group from the Chinese-speaking side of the fandom, recently dropped this awesome looking trailer for an ongoing series of FO:E videos. If post-apocalyptic ponies are your thing, check it out above!
Also worth mentioning: this upload of the trailer comes courtesy of the channel Cosmia’s Stash, which is dedicated to republishing content from the Chinese fandom on YouTube. Y’all should definitely give some of the stuff there a look too!

The Adventure into Resurrecting Adventure Ponies

A journey into fiddling with old flash files
Greetings! The resident code Kirin and web master of the site here to report on a little adventure, anecdotal as it might be.
Some of you might have noticed our recent attempts to give the site a little kick, as hard to see as it might be, and s far that has mainly included going through the good old Arcade. Games added, and revised, as well as the main addition of getting Ruffle properly integrated into the site with scripts, so none of you need to install any browser plugins! As well as Ruffle works, the games should work right out of the box for you!
With the overview out of the way, one of the major issues are the ways some of the games were put together a decade ago, when flash was still alive and no one thought of the day the Adobe would drop it. Adventure Ponies, for one, the official cute little pair of games, officially made and hosted by Hasbro and The Hub, back in 2012 and 2013. It's a classic... and it doesn't work. We wanted to fix that.

The Equestria Gaming Arcade: Flashpoint Edition

Download the EQG Arcade Flashpoint Playlist!
Updated 1/1/2024: A few extra games I missed previously have been added!
Hi! I dunno about you, but I think it's about time for another one of those patented, old-timey Unfashionably Late Equestria Gaming Dot Net Posts. Man, remember those? Feels like it was just... uh, the last post. And the one before that. And the one before that. Can't forget the one before that either...
...Anyway, so when Adobe Flash kicked the bucket a few years ago, the Arcade went with it. While we've tried keeping it going with Ruffle, a Flash Player emulator, a very sizeable chunk of pony games are currently incompatible with it and will continue to be for the time being.
Luckily, though, there's an excellent alternative!
BlueMaxima's Flashpoint, to paraphrase the website, is a preservation project dedicated to not just Flash games, but also content from older formats like Shockwave and a whole host of more modern ones. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the project's contributors, they boast a whopping 150,000 games preserved, all ready to be rediscovered in the comfort of one very user friendly program! I'd recommend checking out the website linked above if you're new to Flashpoint, as they can explain things a lot better than I can!
So, what does this all have to do with the Arcade? Two things: first and foremost, that 150,000 preserved games just so happens to include all but 9 of the games from our collection (check below the break for a list)! Secondly, one of the key features of Flashpoint is the ability for users to curate and distribute "playlists" of games, which allows us to provide an Equestria Gaming Arcade playlist!
Importing the playlist is super simple! From the games tab, just hit "import playlist" at the bottom of the tab and select the EQGArcade file once you have it downloaded. Then you'll be right back to playing pony games like it's still 2012! Happy horsegaming!


As of February 2024, the only games currently missing from Flashpoint are nolcip21's Pinkie Fun and Luna Fun, both of which are playable in the Arcade. If and when these finally make their way to Flashpoint, the playlist will be complete.

EQG Catchup - FNF Megapost



Friday Night Funkin', for the  of you who are unaware of it's existance, is a unique and entertaining music rhythm game that will put your musical knowledge and reflexes to the test. You get to play to a range of Funkin' music tracks while trying to earn the highest possible score.

Now with the help of mods, you can ponify the game, play custom scenarios, tracks, and make it even more fun! The list of them is quite lengthy, so be prepared for your computer to explode the moment you click to read more

We were going to wait until the April 2022 update to post this, but since that doesn't appear to be coming anytime soon, I felt we may as well post about it while the game is still relevant.

Slaughter Horse 2

Have you ever wanted to take on the role of a evil murderous horse? Then this is the game for you! Slaughter Horse 2 is a game of strategy, deception and skill in which your goal is to slaughter all the members of the Town Council before they have a chance to raise an alarm. You must use your wits and cunning to outsmart your opponents, while also keeping your sanity in check and acting as innocent as possible.
"Craft fiendish and irresistible cakes, drop in on the townsfolk and murder them, gaslight innocent ponies into doubting their own innocence, kidnap victims and lock them in your basement - they will probably try and barter for their lives with information. Hopeless, of course."
The game is a prequel to the grimdark mobile game "Slaughter Horse" and based on the classic Werewolf game, but with it's own unique twists! The game is shockingly complex, well polished and constantly updated. If you're interested, you can check it out here on Steam!
Element of Justice is a short game by Soft Lava where you take on the role of Octavia, who must seek and try to put right the wrongs done to her. The game is heavily inspired by LISA the painful, with a strong emphasis on narrative - consequences carry seamlessly between story and combat. 
The game uses traditional RPG Maker battles and turn-based combat, features excellent spritework, a great soundtrack, and a solid story with different endings based on how you respond to the various circumstances. There are also numerous secrets to discover throughout the game.
I'm going to have to put a strong content warning on this one, but if that doesn't scare you, I'd definitely recommend you give it a play through!
