one more question will the characters in this game actually be the MLP.FIM characters?

derpiihooves Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The original idea was that yes, the characters would be humanized versions of the main 6 ponies, and would retain their respective personalities and relations with one another. You can probably expect some slight differences, but they will be evidently inspired by the FiM characters nonetheless.

I'm just curious.
Is this a game like Ni No Kuni where players are playing a game while reading a story at the same time or simply an RPG-like game where it's just pure dialogue and the player interacts with stuff?

hey there.

There aren't any towns to physically run around in or characters to control in Starswirl Academy. Like most visual novels, SA's gameplay consists of interacting with the various characters through dialogue in text boxes, with the occasional chance to make a choice of what to say. The best comparison would be a "choose your adventure" book.

Actually, I was asking like, do you point-and-click to access areas, collect items that the characters need you to get and stuff.
Sorry, I'm just new to visual novels and I'm looking forward to this one.

P.S. How about Doctor Whooves as a professor? ^_^

There's no point-and-click, no, so I don't think there's any item collecting of any sort either. It progresses much like any ordinary physical novel, really.

I can't guarantee anything regarding Dr. Hooves, but we'll see.

As the characters are in their last year of high school, they are all around 18 or just turning.

More More More More More More More More More More More More More MOOOOOORRREEEEEE- what i am trying to say is that for a teaser that looks impressive enough where you made my entire day by submitting this,I simply got a little over excited and demanded more,sorry about that over exaggeration.Anyways,on a serious note,this is really freaking impressive,looks good enough to be done by a professional team,maybe even better depending on who you are,and if your like me then youd be one of those people that agree with me in saying this is amazing.I really got to keep up with updates from the site,anyways,all three of you did a great job,and i cant wait til this comes out.

This is the most generic thing I have ever seen.

If you were going for that minimal effort anime visual novel style I have to say you nailed it perfectly.

They already said that if Hasbro does go apeshit for no real reason that they will just change the names. Hasbro doesn't own the names just the phrases My little pony and friendship is magic.

We will have to see. If you every need one for the project you should ask who would pay to have one of their humanized Oc's in the background of 2-3 shots.

Again only an if necessary.
