Hello everypony and welcome to /collab/! We’re a board that’s all about fan made projects. You can use this board to follow and support your favorite fan works, start something up yourself, get extra hooves for your project or contribute to somepony else’s project.

However, a lot of threads in /collab/ tend to go ignored. We’ve got a very active fan base, so if you want to start up a new project: you’ve got a lot of competition! You’ll have to do your best to convince people to work with you.

To that end, we have some guidelines we would like everypony to follow. Remember that they aren’t strict rules, but we would highly appreciate it if you follow them or at least keep them in mind, especially if you want to open a thread here.

The guidelines can be found here:

If you need some help making your thread, don’t hesitate to post in this thread. We’ll be glad to help you out, in fact, we’ll respect you even more for it. And if you see a thread out there that needs a push in the right direction, be sure to refer them to this thread!

> Deep down in a dark corner of Ponychan lived old /collab/. I don't know where it came from, nor who or what it was in long-forgotten years past beneath the light of the sun; for few indeed ventured there now.

> /collab/ had a little boat, and rowed about quite quietly on the Internet; wide and deep and deadly cold. Anons paddled it with large feet dangling over the side, but never a ripple did the site make. Not /collab/.

> One user was looking out of his pale lamp-like eyes for blind parasprites, which he grabbed with his long fingers as quick as thinking. He liked ponies, too. Alicorn he thought good, when he could get it; but he took care they never found him out. He just throttled them from behind, if they ever came down alone anywhere near the edge of the water, while he was prowling about.

> They very seldom did, for they had a feeling that something unpleasant was lurking down there, deep down at the very roots of Ponychan.

> They had come upon the site, when they were tunneling the IRC long ago, and they found they could go no further; so their thread 404'ed in that direction, and there was no reason to post further -- unless the Great Pony sent them. Sometimes she took a fancy fishing for spam in the depths of /collab/, and sometimes neither fish nor spam came back.

Through my adventures on /chat/, /art/, and even /fic/ I have noticed some extremely talented chaps here in Ponychan. Now, if any of you are interested in Doctor Who, there's a chance you may have heard of a pony named Doctor Whooves. There are millions upon millions of Ask blogs featuring the timelord's (Or is it Time Pony?) adventures throughout the My Little Pony universe with his companion. (Usually, his companion is Derpy Hooves.) But, part of what makes Doctor Who such a huge fandom is it's spinoff series entitled Torchwood. Torchwood follows the adventures of Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato, and Ianto Jones. They are a team criminal investigators in charge of dealing with the extraterrestrial. But, we never see them in the MLP universe like we see The Doctor. Why is that? It might be because Doctor Whooves' popularity just swept them out of mind. But, I know that it is my duty as a devout Whovian to make thing right again. And that, my friends, is why I need you.

If you are savvy with Tumblr as a site, you could help the production by setting up an account to post on. I.E: Creating/setting up the theme, embedding music and videos to the blog, and making sure the blog runs smoothly. You will be the brains of the operation.

If you want to help by editing, you will be looking at a rough draft and fixing it up. Making edits to help characters act how they would in their normal canon, fixing grammatical errors, and suggesting courses of action the story or the question can go. You will be the investigators of the team.

If you have skills in digital art, we need you desperately. You will draw out the story and convey the story through a language native to Tumblr. You will be the brawn of the operation.

If you have any other skills that you can contribute to this blog, be sure to contact me at ectoAlchemist on Skype or on Gmail. Some other skills that we could use but are not required are people who could create flash games to deliver a fun and interactive experience to viewers. Something that would also be nice to have but not necessary would be an animator or a voice actor so that we can convey s

I am an artist and writer. Today I am asking if there is anyone who would like to share in my dream? Allow me to elaborate…

We seek to create a visual novel with an entirely original cast of characters set in a pony universe. It will be one part dating simulation, and two parts epic narrative driven story: following the journey of a male protagonist with a love of interest of his choice. A functional demo shall be launched alongside a funding campaign. The use of original characters and a vague Equestria esque setting means we will be able to copyright and sell this as a parody work.

A team is assembling towards this dream; however we are still in need. We are looking for an individual well versed in coding Ren’py, a background artist, a sound manager, and an exceptional editor. Note* since several offers for editor have been, made currently only those with experience (writing and/or editing, preferably both) need apply.

Up to six lovely ladies, six dreams, and only you to make one real. Trampling over all others only one will win! Fight for what’s right! Fight with all your might! Fight for love! Fight for all the above! Which will you support?

Note* your applications will be reviewed by the team. The email provided is a forwarding address.

Thanks for posting this, AkashicBrony. Some stuff to think about:

* You stated that the project will use original characters. It sounds like the setting is only vaguely similar to the world of Friendship is Magic. That said, is crowdfunding appropriate for this project? Before considering using a crowdfunding service, read its rules and its copyright policy, and ask if you have questions.

* Make sure people can trust you. I say this because in the recent past, there was a project on Kickstarter called Dark Skyes. It was not clear whether it was a scam, whether the creators intended to finish it, or whether the final version would have NSFW content.

* If you choose to use Ren'py and you need assistance, then politely ask for help on Lemma Soft. Look through the discussion thread Requirements for Recruitment at first, and then read at least part of the Suggestions for Recruiters thread at .

* Consider how you'll approach the combination of romance and adventure. If the visual novel puts less emphasis on relationships, then how relevant are they? Also, how are the two linked? I have read some visual novels which combine romance and adventure to varying degrees of success. The last one which had both that I liked was the PSP/Vita-compatible game Sweet Fuse.

* Finally, consider what's currently being done with Pony Amnesia: Love and Mysteries, and Starswirl Academy. The former project takes place in the Friendshp is Magic universe, and promises to include both a general story and relationships. The latter project uses humanized characters, and promises to mix slice of life and romantic drama.

Thank you kindly for your input.

I've studied Media Law, the project scope I'm establishing fits within the legal boundaries. The cast, the setting, and story does not copy of existing material.

Yeah, trust is important when building the core team. I've had to already deny some applicants for their obvious free-loading tendencies. I'm looking for driven and reliable individuals. Other folks are welcomed to the "pre-reader" area.

I've heard of the Dark Skyes "debacle". The scammers were promising the moon. My own project is contained in scope with realistic expectations and we'll release a functional demo first. I'm actually the artist and project leader, so I have a vested interest in the project. The mercenary is only after money. Art takes blood, sweat, and tears. Not to mention time.

Other proposed projects, say "I have an idea. I'll sit back, please throw money, energy, and talented people at us.". What we're saying, what WE ART SAYING IS "I'll front load the work, I'll give you a reason to believe with results, and I won't ask of you what I won't give back." How many ideas are half baked and still borne into the net? I'm not telling you to attack that machinegun nest. I'm telling you to follow me attacking that machinegun nest. =D

Production is ongoing, but we're still recruiting. Released today, I would like to reveal some story details though. Shadows of Shattered Dreams is to be set in an apocalyptic scenario after a coalition invasion of multiple races is thwarted at a terrible cost. Looming above the day to day desperation will be the ever present encroach of decay. Friends and allies of one path will be enemies of another.

Hello everyone! I've been working on a series of stories with a friend of mine for a while now. We both really loved the Power Ponies, and wanted more, so we began to develop the world of the Power Ponies in our own little episodic stories. But I decided it's time they were fleshed out to a medium everyone can enjoy.

That's why I'm looking for artists, and even voice actors (Though primarily the artists) to help develop a series of episodic visual novels about the adventures of the heroes of Maretropolis, not just the Power ponies. Full of characters like The Iron Chef, Watcher, The Silver Star, Dragon, Chromatomic, and plenty more.

It's all being done in Ren'py, a very simple and basic engine for VNs. If you're interested, feel free to contact me by email, or just reply here. Samples of your work are preferred, and I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you have.

Thanks for keeping this project alive, Knitcap. There are interesting comparisons to be made between reading a comic and reading a VN. I can think of two examples that might bridge the two media forms: "Quartett!" (fan translated) and "Little Witch Romanesque" (about to be officially translated). Both of them use a system called Floating Frame Director that does not rely on character sprites or a text box. It instead relies on varied graphics and speech bubbles.

I'm interested in seeing how this limited animation will turn out. Is it reasonably easy to create? Does it help the pacing of the story? Finally, do you like it as a way to tell a story?
>> No. 47214
Thank YOU for your continued interest! Overall, I've been working with both to try and determine which I like better, and so far, I'm preferring the limited animation approach. But I'll definitely have to look into the VNs you mentioned

From a technical standpoint, the art is fairly easy to make (though, I can't say this firsthand, I'm just speaking from my understanding of how it works). If a character is talking then moves their head, the artist simply needs to make the "End frames" of mouth open, mouth closed, then the turned head, and I use basic transitions (Fades, dissolves, or just a quick-cut) based on the movement that will take place. occasionally, to better express movement, some still-frames of objects will "Slide" Slightly across the scene, but I am trying to keep that to a minimum because if used incorrectly it can be visually jarring.

Unfortunately, as it is now, progress is still very slow. I have one artist on-board, but his time is limited, so he really is still in just the "concept art" stages, even though I believe I have several 'seasons' worth of story written for these characters.

For example, the hero in the pic of this post is "The Watcher" One of the main protagonists of these stories. A blind pony who shares a telepathic bond with animals and can see through their senses, favoring his two birds: The Falcon, Spotter, and the Owl, Sentinel (not pictured).

If you or anyone you know is interested in joining the art team for this project, please don't hesitate to contact me, I'd be more than happy to bring them aboard. The same goes for anyone interested in creating audio (background music, sfx or voice work)

It's been a whole year since the last thread. So I figured it was about time for a new one. (Old thread: >>43172). Related fun fact: Desktop Ponies is now 2 years and 8 months old.

Full download (v1.52 released 2014-10-06):

We've seen 20 new canon ponies and a bunch of extra animations since this time last year. As well as a wealth of other improvements.

Check out the deviantART community:

I just had a thought/suggestion:

So far as I can tell, there are no Desktop Ponies made of the Olden Pony or the Headless Horse. I understand that the Headless Horse's appearance is in silhouette and any attempts to work on it would largely be conjecture, but they would be interesting Desktop Ponies to see added. This is all at the convenience of those who produce these characters, though, so feel free to take your time on them if you take up my suggestion.

Hello, I know I'm one year late with this, but I'll be doing connectivity tests on my game soon. Perhaps even tomorrow. [ My Tumblr [] ] I've rebuilt the game engine from scratch since the last time (server side mostly). Gained much experience etc.
The game mechanics are far from being done. But I think I will be able to host the game unfinished (basically alpha) and update it weekly from there. Any info I missed out?

Hmm... It is essentially a MMO-RPG. I'm drawing inspiration mainly from Dragon Realms.
So, yeah. I want to have active GMs monitoring players and most importantly pushing the story forward (true DnD style). There will be next to no meta game! If that bothers you, this may not be the game for you. Breaking character too much will be punishable. Unless it doesn't affect others' rp.

Also, why am I writing here? Well, I don't want to attract too many people. Plus, having next to no budget and working alone I can only host so big of a server. If it gets bigger, who knows? We might think of something. I will be happy to provide updates for even a few ponies, nonetheless.

So yeah, few days max. Probably tomorrow (sunday) all-day. You can AMA here if you want.

Hey there! So, my name is Firestarter, and as the title of this thread says, I am looking for a couple skilled writers to help out on a CYOA project (CYOA = choose your own adventure).
It will be primarily of the Romance genre and based on My Little Pony, basically like an interactive fanfic. At some point this story will be made public so that any and all writers can expand on the story, but right now we are looking for just a few people who can help to write the beginning, introduce characters, start a few storylines, etcetera. If you're interested please leave a reply on this thread.

Thanks so much for your time, and I hope to work with you soon!

What made you choose mediawiki as the platform?

What about features that a more specialized engine could offer? Variables and such.

Also, this seems rather aimless. There is no overall plot here. I know that CYOAs are very weak in general, but this is weak even with that accounted for.

Hello everyone! I'm beginning to work on a MLP fan-game, a point-and-click adventure game in the style of games like Monkey Island, King's Quest, Space Quest, etc. See that neat little screen shot? Notice there's not much to show. That's because I'm looking for people to help fill that in for me. While I can write and program, I am by no stretch of the imagination, an artist. (I don't even know if I'm allowed to use the art in that screenshot for the final game)

So, that's why I'm looking for artists and animators to help fill in those visuals. Any and all submissions are welcome, of course, but mainly the visuals that I need are character walk cycles, basic actions, and a few "Scene specific" animations. Nothing (I hope) too difficult or time-consuming.

Of course, if anyone would like to help expand this game and refine it by making music or doing voice acting, that would be greatly appreciated, but my main focus at the moment is the visuals, as the engine I'm working in is very visually-based.

Now then, I'm sure the big question at this point, is what the game's about. Here's a quick synapsis:

Twilight, while researching the Elements and the Tree of Harmony, discovers of an event coming up in two weeks, "When an empty moon (new moon) eclipses the sun". Known as the "Black Eclipse", the one day every couple thousand years where Celestia and Luna's magic is dispelled and useless.

This magic includes the seal on the gates of Tartarus, which holds back creatures that were barely banished with the power of the elements. But now, without them, Twilight must find a new way to keep these creatures at bay, and she only has 2 weeks to figure it out!

Inspired by the games Uninvited, Shadowgate, and Deja Vu, I decided to make a "macadventure" game.

The story is simple. On their way to a Nightmare Night party in the edge of the Everfree Forest, Octavia and Vinyl Scratch find themselves at the abandoned mansion where it is being held. But, is it the right one? What secrets and horrors lie inside?

Instead of having so many verb commands, the game uses two context-sensitive actions, look and touch, and a simple inventory system. However, unlike many adventure games where a character can store everything in his/her pocket, you can only carry 6 individual items. Thankfully, there is a recreation room in the house where you can store all the items you find in the game. The rec room also provides protection from what lurks inside the mansion and resets your fear meter. The fear meter rises as you explore the mansion, giving you a limited amount of time to explore. If it reaches the top, Octavia will go insane and the game will be over.

I'm going to see if I can release this on Halloween.

Hi everypony!

I've made a game with ponies in it ... well, I've started to, anyway! It's an NES-style platformer, written in Flash. Applejack jumps, stomps and bucks her way out of a forest full of owlbears.

It's still a LONG way from finished, but I think the foundation and controls are pretty good. I'd appreciate it if my fellow bronies could give it a try and share your comments, suggestions, and demands.

(Future plans include music, bosses, more levels, and of course other playable ponies...)
