So I've been busy on the next game. And I'll just announce it right now: it's going to be Fluttershy!

Here's an image of the work in progress:
Fsgame by EwoudCPonies

I've done most of the technical behavior-ey stuff.
But there is a ton of animation to do. Fluttershy is a good bit more complex than Applejack to animate, especially with the hair and the eyes. That, and I had foolishly decided to plan more animations for this one.

It will still take a while to finish this game. I still have a job, a social life and other hobbies, but I try to do at least a little bit each week.

If you have any ideas for Fluttershy behavior, whether you have something vague or specific, whether it will fit into the game or not, I'd like to hear it.
If you have any ideas for one of the other mane six, I'd like to hear those too.

I'm so waiting for this one, even if best pony was already animated in the previous game :)

Well, I did have the idea of including Angel in one of the animations, slamming a door in the player's face for upsetting Fluttershy...

I haven't added voices to the game yet.
But several people have already shown interest in doing Fluttershy's voice, so I don't expect to have a hard time finding someone when I'm ready to add voices c:

Oh, so you do the voices after the animation?

With these games I usually have a rough idea when I go in, but most of the details are not yet set.
I try to do most of the animation, and when I get an idea for a line or a sound at a specific point I make a quick placeholder animation. When I get the voice work, I go back and finish it up.

Will there be a Petting (Princess) Twilight Sparkle version of the game?

My plan is to make one for each of the mane six, including Twilight.

Each one will take some time to make though.

This is just me talking/typing here, but do you think you could add some sim needs/motives into the mlp petting games to make them appear more realistic like?


Hunger

Bladder

Social

Comfort

Hygiene

Energy

It's a cool idea, but I think that would change the game a bit too much.
I'm trying to stay within the confines of "meet a pony and pet them".

I do like the idea of being able to give a pony snacks. And since I'm writing each pony's AI differently, some of them might actually have a few sim-like characteristics.
But they will not be dependent on the player for their well-being in a Tamagotchi-like manner.

I think you might be interested in DracoBlair's project PixelShy, which will be like a Fluttershy Tamagotchi with minigames (see fav.me/d88qu4x).

Aw, I kinda wanted to have my own interactive pony to hang out with and be able to take care of her needs whenever they're needed and also have the ponies as a friend. (sad face)
