Ambient.White – Story Demo Released

The Ambient game project has made significant progress in the last few months, releasing many news updates and, most recently, a new playable game demo that you can download. 
However, due to high ambitions and a lack of resources, it appears that the team is putting this project on hold for a few years to work on smaller games that can be done quickly and more reasonably. For Ambient.White, they hope and expect to have a release date some time in 2025, once the team has had time to properly grow and mature.
Visually, the game looks stunning, and both the project and the team have undergone some big changes over the years, so I'd highly recommend checking it out to see how it has evolved!
You can check out the gameplay video on their YouTube channel, or download the game from their website and try it out for yourself.

Phoenix 2 - Prewar

Today we've got a game from a new development team called Equgames! Phoenix 2 Prewar takes place in a troubled pre-war Equestria where you play as Strikely, an Equestrian intelligence lieutenant, as they attempt to save this retrofuturistic world. Play the role of a simple pony living in a world full with secrets, lies, and deception.
The game is still in development, having been rebuilt from the ground up roughly a year ago; as a result, there may be a few bugs, but they are minor, and the game is still fully playable. If you run into any problems, the developer encourages you to contact them by email.
Download the game here!
Also, if you understand Russian, you might want to check out some of the other games created by this team over on their blog:

My Little Pony: Harmony Eclipsed - Game Complete!

My Little Pony: Harmony Eclipsed is a highly enjoyable RPG that puts you in the horseshoes of Princess Luna, along with our other favorite colorful horse heroes, on a quest to rid Equestria of an ever-growing dark magic threat. It's a ton of fun, and there's a lot of content here, though it may be challenging at times (most likely because I'm bad at games!) I'm around three hours into the game right now, and there's still so much to do!
If this seems like something you'd be interested in, visit the MLP Forums thread for additional information about the game and upcoming updates. We won't be linking to a static build again like we did in our previous article (whoops!), just in case the game changes again.

My Little Karaoke - G5 Update

We hope you're ready for some karaoke parties, because the MyLittleKaraoke team is back with a new 2021 version of their game, bringing with it over 100 new songs and a slew of new features, as well as performance and stability improvements, and all running on a new version of the game's engine, Ultrastar Deluxe. Check out the details below or visit their website to learn more!
Hello everyone!
MyLittleKaraoke is back with a major update! The game is getting better with an updated engine, and all songs now directly integrated into the base game. We've also updated the website, so that the forums are back and - most importantly - the online leaderboards are back online too! Check our website's sidebar for a quick recap on how to sign-up and/or configure the game to participate.

And, yes! G5 songs are included in this update, which a few extra surprises to boot!
To update the game, simply run the launcher and it will prompt you for a (fairly large) download. You can also run the installer from our website (, and it will either update your existing instance, or install the latest version directly if starting from scratch.

Some small notes: we're aware of a few bugs, and are working on fixing them. Here are some ways to mitigate known issues:
- If you run into a glitch making the text hard to read during gameplay, try changing the font style to "Outline" in the Options → Lyrics menu. You can also try changing the font itself.
- Changing themes in the Options menu may lead to a crash. The game should work fine when restarted then.
- The online leaderboards still have a few missing features, being worked on. You should still be able to submit your best scores, so grab your microphones and go claim the top spots!

Sonic and the Elements of Harmony

Sonic and the Elements of Harmony is a 2D Sonic Fan-game that crosses over with the animated television series we all know and love. It focuses on both classic and modern gameplay elements of a Sonic game and was created in Game Maker Studio 2.3. Originally showed off at the 2021 Sonic Amateur Game Expo, this game has seen a number of improvements and additions, such a Twilight Sparkle as a new playable character, a new stage and some new In-Game dialogue.

[Stardew Valley Mod] - Starswirl Valley

We previously highlighted a mod for Stardew Valley in our Equestria Gaming Catchup Post™ that converts the characters into anthro ponies, but this new, work-in-progress mod for Stardew Valley, which was recently released over on Nexusmods, actually goes and turns the valley's inhabitants into ponies. It's still a work in progress, but so far it's looking pretty good!
The mod can be found here:

Battle Gem Ponies End-of-Year DevLog Update!

The creators of Battle Gem Ponies appears to have recently published their End-of-Year DevLog update and, as an added bonus, have prepared their own press release for this, which I certainly won't complain about! Find it below:
After chipping away at development tools and setup behind the scenes, the Yotes Games team is back with an (admittedly late) update on what we've been up to! 
In short, things like new scenery, a debugged overworld, and more videos breaking down specific mechanics can be expected as we charge full-speed ahead into the next year. 
The team is thankful for how far we've been able to get this year with the help of the Kickstarter, and we're looking forward to fulfilling the promise of a truly awesome video game experience!
