THE PONIES (THE GAME)

THE PONIES OFFICIAL WEBSITE/SOUNDTRACK.


What is The Ponies?

The Ponies is a community-run project aiming to create a clone of the original Sims game (from scratch, of course) but inspired by the design of MLP:FiM (none are affiliated). The game is still in early development, but is so far being programmed in the C# language and built in Unity. We plan to release early builds as we go, so the game would be early access. When the game is completed, it will be free to play.

What features will be in the game?

In The Ponies, you will be given the power to create your very own ponies and control their lives. You get to choose their interactions which affect their future. Expand their relationships with other ponies to make friends or foe. Build up their skills to help them function better in the world and in their careers; including cooking, creativity, mechanical, body, logic, and charisma. Build their homes, even including the everyday places they visit. Take control of their every move, whether that ends up taking them down a successful, happy life or makes them a complete train wreck. Everything is up to you.

Is it legal?

Yes, this project is legal. The Ponies is a non-profit project focusing to re-create Electronic Arts’ original The Sims game (TS1) in the form of a parody featuring a visual design inspired by Hasbro’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series. The game is programmed with C# code, and is completely 100% original, reverse-engineering the gameplay mechanics of TS1, while implementing many new features. We neither distribute, nor alter any intellectual property belonging to Electronic Arts, Inc. or Hasbro, Inc. This project is non-commercial.  No content such as official show characters, locations, or any other copyrighted material will be present in this game.

This looks adorbs!  I hope the devs stay involved and don't get tired of doing this because I love seeing the progress!  The fact they made a soundtrack say a lot to them wanting to complete this. :D  Nice shapely pony design too.  I think they are off to a good start.

I also hope it is fully 3D and not sort of a top angle like the original Sims.  It looks like they are already taking some Sims 2 design aspects in there few preview shots.

They are working on voice acting... Oh my! Lol!


I have not listened yet, but I wonder if the ponies will speak gibberish?

They made up their own pony language according to that video.  So it is pony-is gibberish.

I listened to it in the background.  They were not really melding through it but then got to know each others better and had better relations through it. Kind of interesting to hear the process.

I'm glad there is progress. Voice work is pretty in-depth so it seems like they are really trying to make this game great.

This pleases me as well. :D  It might take them ten years at this pace, but at least they haven't stopped.

They are really updating music in this game again.  I'm seeing more music and soundtrack work being done then actual gameplay.
