My Little Pony: Harmony Eclipsed

Well look at that, we're actually posting something in a timely manner!
It looks like we've got a new RPG on the scene! My Little Pony: Harmony Eclipsed is an incredibly fun Final Fantasy-esque game that puts you in the regal horseshoes of Princess Luna (and featuring our other familiar pastel horse protagonists, of course!) on a quest to rid Equestria of a ever-growing dark magic threat, taking place sometime after the end of Season 3. While there's occasional bits of placeholder dialogue or assets as the game is still unfinished, overall there's a surprising amount of game here for something only getting more widespread public attention now, and I still have a decent chunk of game left to go through after clocking roughly two hours with it!
If this sounds like something up your alley, check out the game's thread on MLP Forums linked above for more information and future updates. We've also pasted the relevant information and the download link for this release below the break if that's more your speed!
This is a fan project I've been working on for the past several years with several artists, musicians, and playtesters. I've got the first 2/3rds of the game in a rough playable state, though it still needs a lot of polishing and bugfixing. I intend to continue working on it, but I've lost momentum on it for a couple of months now. Since the last season's hiatus is over, I wanted to post my most recent build publicly before the series ends. Hopefully, it will help give me the motivation I need to get back on track.
  • The game should be playable in its current build, but there are some missing graphics and other kinds of placeholders. I've done my best to clearly mark when something is a placeholder, so if you see something missing that doesn't explicitly say it's a placeholder or it isn't specifically mentioned in the Known Bugs textfile or in a post on this thread, then assume it's something I need to know about.
  • There's still a fair amount of balance and progression tweaking to be done, and all feedback in that regard is valuable
  • The game will explicitly tell you when you get to the end of the build, so if you get stuck before that, that's something I need to address
  • Be sure to stagger your save files (have multiple saves instead of saving in the same slot every time) in case you encounter a game-breaking bug.
  • Before running the game, make sure to go to this page and run the file that downloads from it. It's a pack of the default resources that come with RPG Maker XP, and the game uses a lot of the tilesets from it.
Controls are Space to confirm/interact, X to cancel/open menu, and arrow keys to move. If you want to customize those controls or use a gamepad, launch the game and press F1 to open the controls/options menu.
