If you don’t have your finger on the pulse of the Brony community as I do, (That is, the community of adult male My Little Pony fans.) you might not realize that there’s currently much angst in that community.
The toy company that produces the show has doubled their action-figure product line by creating a movie (in select theaters now!) that redesigns all the characters as humans.
The Bronies don’t like this one bit. Their favorite show about magical talking ponies has now been redesigned as a show for little girls!
Luckily, some of them have come up with a redesign of their own. :
I love how coy they are with the names. It’s not “Equestria”, it’s “Questria” which is a totally new thing that is completely legally distinct.
Also, instead of “Princess Celestia”, the ruler is “Sirelestia”, which I can only assume means the developers have decided that the ponies should be ruled by a man.
Not just a game, a “Simulator”
According to the video, this game is about guiding Princess … *sigh* … Princess Spankle “through the trials of her formative years to become the next ruler of her kingdom.” You can “interact with her as her mentor and guide … in hopes of forming a well rounded lady and a perfect princess.”
Follow the Money
So if they don’t raise $60,000 they’re going to keep your money, and use it to pay themselves for the hard work involved in asking you for your money.
