Friday Game Night, March 24th - Cards Against Humanity

After just a tiny bit of a break, the fine folks at CinemaQuestria are ready to get back on track with their regular Friday Game Nights! Kicking things back off, we're wrapping up the week this time with the legendary Cards Against Humanity.
...Which reminds me that I need to perhaps play this game for myself at some point, it certainly looks like an experience!
Anyway, check out the list below for the usual details, and have fun!

Day Dreaming Derpy Sweetie Belle Update - Demo v0.2

An update had recently been released for the charming JRPG affair, Day Dreaming Derpy.
This gorgious game received it's big 'Sweetie Belle update' just a few days ago, introducing a new dream area, a new awake area, new dreams, new uniforms, new followers, one of which you can probably guess from the title of the update, and a whole array of fixes.
What can I say without reiterating points in our previous post on the game?
This really is one of the biggest surprises we've had here for a while, A short sweet demo of a JRPG featuring everypony's favourite muffin enthusiast, exploring the dreams of her fellow ponies. Absolutely beautiful artwork, with only insignificant clashing styles. You wouldn't guess that it is a mere RPG Maker game just from looking at it, really breaking the cookie cutter style you usually see in those easy-to-use engines. Very approachable and simple combat and gameplay, unlike what you would expect when someone brings up JRPG's. Feels very stripped down, in comparison to your Final Fantasies, but never really lacking, unless you're going in expecting another overly complex grand RPG experience.
It is small, it is cute, it feels familiar and emotional and I wholeheartedly recommend anyone to give it a go. It puts a smile on your face, nothing less.

Limey Lassen - Starlight Glimmer Doesn't Forgive You

Looks like we've just missed the boat (well, that's certainly a new one) on having something relevant to post on Starlight Glimmer Day, but such is life. We've come across a pretty interesting little track from the artist Limey Lassen, a remix of Starlight's in-show BGM evidently inspired by the wonderful Starlight Glimmer Simulator! Check it out above, and be sure to give the artist some love!

Overmare Studios' "Fallout Equestria" now "Ashes of Equestria" + Wave 5 Demo Released

It's been a little slow these past two weeks, but hey, here's a post, so no worries! Once again a little bit late on the uptake, we've got a fairly (probably a bit of an understatement, haha) important update from the now-formerly-named Fallout Equestria team, The Overmare Studios. Provided below the break is the statement from their website regarding the name change, including the always-lovely legalese behind their decision to do so, and above is the link to the latest demo released concurrently with the change.

As an aside, I'd like to take the opportunity to post a little reminder that the Submit button up there exists! Please send us news and other horse game junk when you notice it; even if you think we already know about it, we'd still appreciate the heads-up! We're just a few people here behind the curtain, so we can't (and don't) always catch everything immediately!


Derpy's Gr8 Avdenture - Trilogy

 Derpy's Gr8 game trilogy
Happy Derpy day everyone! Due to this glorious occasion, I thought it would be the perfect time to present a trilogy of games that I'd been working on for the majority of last year.

This is a series of 3d platformer collect-a-ton games designed to be as unpredictable and silly as possible, much like the character herself. While the first game is quite simple, since it was made in three days, the other two games are much more complete, imaginative and most importantly, stable! If you're in the mood for goofy satires of platforming games, these are the perfect masterpieces for you!

Battle Gem Ponies - Steam Greenlight Update

February has certainly been news-filled, hasn't it? We've got a press release here from the creator of Battle Gem Ponies regarding the most recent update, and even includes some news about the legal side of things that isn't terrifically disappointing! How rare is that? Read on below!
This month's Battle Gem Ponies update is finally here! The notable changes here are character redesigns, a toggle-friendly virtual D-Pad, and bug fixes for the Steam Greenlight release in January. Feedback was taken into account and legal issues have been looked into. A Valve employee even reached out to discuss the issues with the last build and the legal steps necessary to continue.
The game is now sufficiently distinguishable from the things that inspired it. It feels like a mashup of MLP & Pokemon, but it has it's own chibi-pixel style now and none of the characters are confusingly similar to fanon or canon ones from either series. Now it's about as similar to its inspirations as Crash Team Racing is to Mario Kart and Oceanhorn is to Zelda.
Battle Gem Ponies is its own IP that won't be subject to a Cease & Desist order, and will continue to develop in a way that mitigates such worries. All feedback is reviewed and taken into consideration for each monthly update. We want this to be the best game it can be. To extend the pony aesthetic and themes of cute things doing cool things outside of the show that inspired so many to pursue creative careers.
Steam Greenlight is going away soon, so this is likely to be the last push to get the game on that platform if people want it there. So if you like the direction this game is taking, be sure to give it an upvote on Steam!
Oh, and here's two additional screenshots, by the way! I figured it looked slightly ~nicer~ to include 'em in link form rather than just dumping them here at the end, haha!

"Metal Gear Friendship" Animation

So, here's something a little bit different for a change! A wonderful, adorable Metal Gear inspired animated short from the rather talented animator BrutalWeather! Check out the short above, and maybe have a look through the remainder of their animations while you're at it if you have the time!
