For the past two years, the Super Smash Ponies Development Team has been hard at work with an amazing fan project. We had our moments and difficulties, but we try our best to keep our heads high to keep the project going. However, it is with a heavy heart that I am announcing that Super Smash Ponies is now cancelled.
Due to the recent swarm of cease and desists for many projects, and the fact that we lack resources, we have chosen to lessen the burden of our devteam considering we have real obligations. However, to not disappoint the folk who have anticipated this project, today we are hosting a livestream of our last build in development. Thank you for all your support.
I love what you guys are doing a support you greatly, but I feel this needs to be ask: If you guys found yourself compromised like mane6, will you take their route of complying and scrapping everything? Will you release what you have so far in order for other to complete it? Or will you go rouge and continue regardless of any C&D?
We’d comply and stop the development process (except perhaps the lead developer) — we still have our own personal lives to carry out and we don’t want to compromise those due to legal troubles. Of course, we’d probably just make other games under a new devteam name.
I'm going to assume it's a safe bet that break the targets will be here. But i must ask, will board the Platforms be here? I enjoy that one more than the targets and I am sad to see that it's not in the official smash games. :(
Perhaps. It is a fun mode, and it would be nice if we could bring it back.
But, unfortunately, my lips are zipped for that answer.
I know I asked this before, but if I ask here I might actually get a response. Since you are making the game on GameMaker Studio, is it possible to publish it to the Steam Workshop when you're finished? I've seen a couple of pony games there so you don't need to worry about that.
A definite answer cannot be given at this time. We have to check if there are any filetypes that are not restricted such as needed .dlls or other files. Not to mention details regarding copyright, because copyright is such a grey area…
As of now there are no plans to put this game on Steam Workshop.
Instead of that April Fools build you should have given us the Desktop Pony build. It would be so much more funny and would us all feel good. Zilven if you haven't already dumped the old thing, PLEASE give it to us!
After all the days of sweat, blood, labor, and tears, Super Smash Ponies finally releases it’s first build. This build comes with 5 multiplayer stages, all mane six characters, and a bonus Adventure Mode level for you to try out.
All the previous features posted on this website are integrated in this first release, so we hope you will be able to enjoy it. Unfortunately, we still need time to port this to Mac OS X so please be patient with us a little further.
Since the mane6 game won't have anything to do with ponies anymore (given how it went full petting farm), do you think you guys are up to the challenge to become THE defining pony fighting game, or THE pony game?
Are you gonna change Twilight around because of her new transformation? Or are you perhaps thinking on the lines of something else, say an alt or completely separate character? Personally I could see Twilight and Princess Twilight being pretty different.
How do you make Fighting games in Gamemaker Studio?
You need to have mastery of the “if” statements and using variables. You’ll have to be able to format and structure the rules and construct of what you want in your fighting game (ex. physics, player states, combos.) It’s all in the mastery of ifs and variables.
Um, guys? wouldn't the winner release the beta build and then EVERYONE is playing as RR and TS?
Um, no. Considering that we trust each other on the devteam, everyone in the devteam is entitled to playing the beta build - we don’t have to worry about our assets being leaked. Besides, who’d want to play a buggy leak anyway? Our game is still in a Sonic 2006 state.
based on the sound of the first 3 stage music you've released it sounds like a cross of brawl type music with some aspects of kingdom hearts thrown in. from a personal stand point I think you might make some of the other music more action orientated were as this sounds more like something you would hear if they were powering up or using a powerful spell. also can we have a download link to these songs? they are very high quality works of art
Whoa long block of text. 1) Not exactly. Kingdom Hearts music is inspired by various other musical pieces. Expect familiarities with other orchestral pieces in other games. 2) You have yet to hear the selection of 125+ songs. 3) http://supersmashponies.com/?page_id=30
