don't give up yet there maybe still hope
Canterlot High School had built up a reputation of being a "magical" place, and when a new student comes along, he intends to put that to the test. Aside from making new friends, he also discovers a strange magic power contained in a book he has. Whenever he unleashes it on someone, they become a lot more friendly and open-minded, to put it lightly.

The game is based on Annon's artwork. He teased the idea of a VN multiple times before, and I decided to make that a reality. Have fun! Also, please notify me if you spot any bugs, especially compatibility issues (you can check alerts about those in your browser console). Thanks in advance!

By the looks of things, yeah. Been six months and we haven't even heard a "hey, not dead yet, sorry for no information". Shame, game had a lot of potential.
i can't get past the pinkie scene where you first use the bimbo magic soon as the convo's over it just stays at a grey screen
That's the final scene at the moment. If you run into those, it's likely the final scene in the current version.
Is there going to be an update soon?
Its me again to ask the same thing, Next update?
The game stops with the white transition screen and stays there indefinitely after the first scene with Pinkie and the book on day two, is that the end for right now or is it just glitching for me?
It's the end at the moment. Whenever you come into one of those scenes, it's most likely the last one for now.
Well, you definitely know how to make me anticipate an update! This is the kind of cliffhanger to make TV shows jealous. I mean that in the nicest way, just in case that doesn't come across.
I found a minor bug (might be intentional?); I used the book on Pinkie, said that I pranked her, she left and I could still use the book (the same scene played out again, just without Pinkie being present).
Thanks, I found the code responsible and fixed it. Maybe I should not have written it after 3AM...
So is the next release going to be the one where you start being able to do some TF? Makes sense it would take a long time to code. Keep up the good work!
Thanks. Yes, TF magic is next, and it's pretty much done now. I'm currently struggling with hidden bugs while trying to test it...
Sorry i know i ask this a lot, but next update?
No probelm, I apologize for the holdup. Need to rework a lot of the code to get the next few features working. New content should come a lot faster when this is done.
So at the moment it stops with Miss Harshwhinny?
Yes. New scenes are on the way though, just need to add a few things in the background before they can be released.
I'm curious, how different is it making this kind of game compared to a regular kind of game?
I'm practically coding it from the ground up, not using any libraries or game making software. It has its benefits, but it also takes a lot more time.
Or is that not what you meant?
I mean like, how different is it from making a game where you move a character through environments compared to this, which has stationary characters who react to sentences that you choose.
Wow Jicho. This is amazing! Are you making this with another program or is this HTML5? I've been wanting to make my own VN. Just never had time till now.
This all started off as a tongue-in-cheek gift to Annon (who made several VN-themed pics prior to all this) for all his amazing artwork, but once I saw how much the community liked it, I decided to continue the project.
Something's up with mine. All I'm getting is a blank gray screen.
Just curious, what webbrowser are you using? I want to see if the same thing happens for me.
Internet Explorer, if that's what you mean
Yes, I did.
I checked it myself - gray screen for me, too. I tried it on Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome as well - did not work on Firefox (might be because I never update it, admittingly...) but it did work on Opera and Chrome. I suggest you grab either of those two and it should work.
So does the current game iteration end a little ways into scene 5?
From what I've seen, it ends after you meet with RD/AJ. Once you head back into the school, it ends (at least it does for me).
Question, any word on the next update?
Do you need any more help with writers? I'm a pretty good one myself, and want to help support the game.
Absolutely. Send me your email address in a PM, and I'll add you to the project.
You could also post it here, or ask Annon to relay it between us (I'd rather not make my email public, if that's okay).
Dose the demo end after you meet cheerilee?
