Starswirl Academy

Starswirl AcademyDev Blog

The Brony fandom has a distinct lack of visual novels, aside from thatMy Little Dashie demoand its sibling,Welcome to Ponyville, which is fairly surprising given the amount of talented artists and writers we have lying around, and how quickly these games can be scripted in a good engine such asRen'Py. Sensing this void, the Zap Project tm hopes to fill it with their upcoming visual novel titled Starswirl Academy, and it stars some unrevled colt in high school who befriends humanized versions of the mane 6. In other words, this is your stereotypical visual novel about schooirls and romance, and like many of its peers has seperate SFW/NSFW versions. At lst it had good art going for it: I'd say that it alrdy looks quite professional despite being in such an rly state. Oh yh, and since the developers went with a modified version of Ren'Py instd of writing their own engine likeFilly Gamezthe game runs on Mac OS X and Linux, and an Android port of the game is also planned.
Feel like playing a visual novel while you wait? Then I would suggest that you giveJuniper's Knota try. It is fairly short and lacks ponies (even humanized ones), but then again it's not like ponies automatically make everything better, right?
