Pony Town

Ponytown is a recent viral affair, that has been buzzing around tumblr and the imageboards in recent months.
Ponytown is a social HTML5 experience. I hesitate to say game, as there are not anything outside of walking around the green fields and socializing with other players. There are an extensive amount of customization around the pony you walk around as, from gender and mane styles, to accessories and all the different colours you could wish for.
It's hard to recommend it for its sheer gameplay value, but in the case of socialization, it is an entertaining little thing. You can switch the tiled playing field between grass and dirt by clicking, but I wouldn't say that counts as gameplay. This is usually where the viral or memetic twist snuck its way in, with people having found their own forms of entertainment, drawing whatevers in the grass for people to behold.
As it is, it's still very much in an alpha stage, constantly getting updated and getting new stuff and features added as we speak. Trees and rocks here and there, a new login system, all small additions towards the right direction.
As mentioned, it is an HTML5 endeavour, so it should work in every major browser. Take it for a spin if you are curious, have some friends to hang out with. I've even seen people use it as a virtual meet-up spot, so that's a very possible option as well. There are both a safe and an unregulated server, so I'd assume it is suitable for all ages.

Equestria Gaming is back!

After just over a year of silence, Equestria Gaming is finally back!
We're back under a new administration and domain, mind you. Now it's equestriagaming.net, not .com, which is explained after the break. After seemingly having been abandoned in early August last year, the only pony games news outlet was Equestria Daily. With the sort of daily output we all know Equestria Daily has, any and all game related news are gonna get drowned out. Hence we have made our move to revive this site and have then been working on an extensive recovery process.
Aside from recovering old posts, that we still aren't done with, we have a list of games, announcements and other related whatnots. If any of you have anything in mind that happened in the last year's time and think should have been covered, throw it our direction at submit@equestriagaming.net
So you can see this as a reboot. A new site, a new administration and a new approach to how the place is handled. I'll explain the situation, with a bit of background info, under the break.
