Secret of the Magic Crystals Catch-All

So I started up the game and popped over to the stables to check out my first horse.

Anice the Unicorn. That's a good name.

A while later, I bought a second horse. What sort of magical sparkly steed will this one be?

Nantres the horrifying death horse. Oh, apparently he's actually a Demon Steed. That's nice. Well, obviously my next step is to breed these two creatures and see what sort of ungodly offspring is produced when a demonic horse mates with a sparkly unicorn. What will it be?

Apparently it's a unicorn named Chedva. I guess Unicorn is a dominant genetic magical horse trait or something. Chedva, Nantres, and Anice. What a delightful family of horse-things with names that are totally normal and not weird at all.

When I posted this it was because tagg had sent me a copy of SotMC, and I rejected his kind offer--it could have started with me! My one shot at history--my one shot!--and I blew it.

[edit] Never mind. Works now. May FSM have mercy on my soul.

This thread was all Popsicles and rainbows and then...

GET OUT OF MY MIND!

I might need to have this inflicted on me pick this up. All my friends are jumping off a bridge, I may as well join them. :)

Friends don't let friends buy themselves Secret of the Magic Crystal. They attack each other with it instead.

That didn't take long. Thanks MrDeVil!

Ponies, here I come!

I think Reddit is also pushing up sales of this game, for similar reasons to GWJ.

Whatever. Ubisoft Horsez is better.

Heresy!

So when there is a need for a new donation icon, perhaps a golden sparkling ponycorn would be appropriate?

I think there's a term for that type of horse: "Nightmare"

Well your Nantres appears to be a grey version of my black Trey!
I had the same mating issue. Crossed the Demon Steed with a Unicorn and got... a unicorn. Would have been awesome if the designer gave us blends. A Demoncorn?

Progress continues as my stable had its 11th member. After sales of level 1 parents I no longer need I have an active stable of one each of L3, L2, and L1. L1's don't earn much cash so I don't keep them after winning all 5 races and producing an offspring. Next is to add one more L1 to ripple the breeding chain to get my first L4. I have unlocked 18 kinds of horshoes, and 19 potions so far. Advanced quests are getting weird if you read them and races are getting harder to win without buying crazy upgrades to decorate each stall of the stable.

So in proper form, I have gifted this to more people. We'll make it game of the year yet and no one outside goodjers will understand how that happened.

On another note, my stable which had been giving me cute unicorns, graceful pegasi (?), and burly Ice Steeds has now given me THIS terrifying beast...

Apparently it's a filly. Yikes! Don't make her mad.

Please see my previous post!

Looks like Toddland can add some additional insight into his class' reading list...

Artery, still a quality outfit...

Plus, my little Anice was doing so well, she was winning all the pony races. I took all of her earnings, upgraded the digs, made room for a second pony, and viola! She now has a firey-f*ck-buddy by the name of Robby. Better stock up on some burn cream for those rear flanks...

So my first horsey's name is "Eulalie." Which is great, because I think EULA's are a lie too, so we had some instant bonding that way.

Eulalie is also apparently dead set on beating all the other little horsies and making me lots of money, which means I must be some kind of magical filly pimp. This makes me uncomfortable. Especially when I realized that the more fancy things I buy for her stable, the better she performs.

The UI is pretty good I think.
Interactions are dog slow, but that may be because they're running C# and Boo through Mono. If they snapped up the responsiveness of the UI just a bit I think it would make a big difference.
I wonder why they didn't just compile the windows version against .Net.
then again, I only spent about a minute looking through the games files looking for a way to mod the pony names so I may have misunderstood what I saw in there.

This makes me happy, especially knowing that one of those is thanks to me.

Love your work!

Current Pony giftings for me stands at 15, and I just loaded another $25 into the old Steam Wallet. Aussie dollar is currently trading slightly higher than the US too, so I just got a little bit more of a discount on my transactions (only about 1c, but still )

Had to be a dirty skimmer, but this post has grown to something beyond comprehension. It has become something truly amazing.

Also, I gathered that this game is available on the mac... oh no.

EDIT: I only had to hold out for 2 more days... then it would have gone away.

So what's the over/under on JillSammich having this in their Steam account by noon?

You are very dedicated to this. I'm really not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

And here I thought I could join in the conversation and somehow avoid having the game pop up in my Steam library.

Looks like I know what I'll be doing tonight.

Oh look:

Also, I picture all of you squealing just like this when you play:

well... that was a quick install.

Whoa! How'd that happen? My Steam stats say I have put 9 hours into this so far.

I hope you're ashamed of yourself!
