Otakon Brony Meetup!

That's right! I'll be attending this year's Otakon!
And even better, I'm organizing a Brony Meetup there! Now I already announced this a few months back, but Otakon is in a few weeks, so here are all the details!

LOCATION CHANGE as of 7/19/11
(Meeting on the Third (floor 400) Floor)


Review: Pony Touhou

Download Link: http://bullethellponies.blogspot.com/

As the title suggests, this game is heavily influenced by the Touhou series: A long-running “bullet hell” shmup franchise with a cult following. However, the title has a bit of an identity crisis- the in-game title is actually My Little Pony vs. Starcraft II, as the enemies seem to be inspired by that game. Personally, I think putting the two titles together with a colon in between would have made more sense. Odd title aside, does the game live up to its legendary inspiration? Hit the jump to find out.

New Equestria Gaming Staff!

I want to give a warm welcome to Sapphire Feather!
I met him at BroNYCon, and he said he was interested in being a reporter for EqG, so I asked him to send me a review.

And well, he did! And it was absolutely brilliant!
So congratulations to him, you'll be seeing some of his posts around now!

I don't really have much more to say about it, other than look forward to his reviews!
Good Luck!

Spike's Quest

A new platformer featuring everypony's favorite baby dragon, Spike, has recently popped up. At the moment, the game is still in it's very early stages, but already looks very promising. The creator wants to follow a story line where the mane 6 are captured by the Diamond Dogs, and it's up to our heroic little dragon to save them!

No More Posts Until Sunday!

BroNYCon July 2011

Alright, a few of you may know this, but I will be attending this July BroNYCon (tomorrow).
This means I won't be updating any more until this Sunday. But honestly, I still feel like I'm missing a lot of gaming news. With all the things I'm doing IRL, I haven't had much time to search for stuff, and you guys really need to tell me when things happen. Even if it's a post on EqD, email me about it. PLEASE.

Luna Game 0 Demo

Luna Game 0 Demo

So the next game in the Luna Game series is underway, but this time it seems we're going backwards! Based on the name, and the things that go on in game, I'd say the next game is going to be a prequel to the series, and may explain a few things about the story behind the series. If you aren't familiar with the series, you can play all the games HERE.

You can download the game in the following link:

Below the Break is a bunch of spoilers.

Minecraftathon 24hr stream

A few Bronies are trying to pull off something insane.
A 24 hour steam of Minecraft.
Now this has little to do with actual MLP: FiM, but they're Bronies, and Minecraft is a game, so I figured, meh, whatevs.

Here is some information:

6pm TO 6pm 14th & 15th of July (That's GMT -7:00)
Participators:  Melodic Mane, PaddleFoot, And ChatterScribe

I say, go check it out to see them pull it off. And if they do, hopefully listen to their crazy conversations after not sleeping for a whole day.

Story of the Blanks

A link to the EqG Arcade page.
Story of the Blanks is an 8-bit styled creepy game. This was the winner of the Creepypasta Game Contest, and well known for it's creepy and slightly disturbing storyline. The game itself features music by CRTified TechnicianZero V2, and DarkNES.

Creepypasta Game Contest!


Thanks to everypony who participated, the winner has been decided as Donitz with Story of the Blanks.
I will be linking the EqG article as soon as I finish it.

Alright, I'm sure many of you know about Luna Game and Luna Game 2. Both games are pretty creepy, but I crave for more. And what better way to get people to make creepy games than bribe them with free stuff?

This month's contest will be to create the creepiest creepypasta pony game that you can. Also, I HAVE decided that I will hold monthly contests, each will likely have the same $10 game on steam prize, but I might mix things up some months.

Luna Game 4 (Creepypasta)

Luna Game 4 (Creepypasta)

Alright, after a long wait, the fourth addition to the Luna Game series has been released! If you haven't already played Luna GameLuna Game 2, and Luna Game 3, I suggest you go do that now.

Though thanks to a user who emailed me, a program was created that allowed you to replay the game.
You can download that program here

Yes, I'm being completely serious, I couldn't even grab a screenshot on my own because I didn't realize this until AFTER I had played through it (Stole this one from Ponychan). This game is by far the best of the four, so I suggest you play it. I'll throw the link before the break this time, making it easier to play it without spoilers.


Video Game Crossover Story Contest Winner


Alright! So after reading all of the stories, I have finally decided upon the winner! Thank you VERY much to everypony who participated, I love ALL of your stories so much! (Like, quite literally, every single one was amazing, it was so hard picking just one winner ;_; )

Iron Pony Challenge

Iron Pony Challenge, a new pony game in progress by JinrohDev, is a game featuring many different mini-games, where you can play as either Rainbow Dash or Applajack. The music featured so far in the game is the main My Little Pony Theme.

The current three games you can play are Pony Longjump, Rainball Bounce, and Hoofball Punt. In the future, you will be able to play as either Applejack or Rainbow Dash, but for now, only Rainbow Dash is supported.  Each game has it's own control scheme (It's highly suggested you read the instructions before playing), but the goal is the same: Get the highest score possible. There IS a high score table, so you can compare your score to others, and see just how well you did.


Anquestria is built on the open-source game "Angband", which is a 'roguelike' RPG. The game has a very simplistic look to it, using the built in windows symbols as the graphics, similar to Dwarf Fortress. The game is still in development, but is currently at a playable state. The game itself has to be run on a Windows system, though the source code can be found on the website to compile it for other systems.

Equestria Gaming Art Contest

Alright, so here is July's Contest! This one will be a tad different than the last two. This time, it's an art contest! Now, for the specifics. The picture has to relate to, in some way, this website (Equestria Gaming), and be video game related. It can be pretty much anything, as long as you find some way to plop this in it. I would suggest drawing an image about Ponies and Video games, then putting the EqG thing in somehow last minute (like, lets say you make a cool Fallout picture, and just plop something Equestria Gaming on a billboard, or on a tiny candy wrapper somewhere, or a television, or a book).

Anyway, here are the official rules:

Team Fortress 2 Ponyville Map

Somepony, known by the name Hawf,  has recently started development on a Ponyville replica map for Team Fortress 2! This will be the first complete Ponyville map for Team Fortress 2 so far. The creator of this is going to try to keep the map as true as he can to Ponyville, while including as many of the ponyville hotspots.

The skill and accuracy of the models so far is amazing, Here is a small clip of a Ponyville house. But even with as much talent as he has, anypony is welcome to join in the development of this project! Just stop by the Ponychan thread and leave a post:
