  2. Battle Gem Ponies 1 Year Later...
    http://rainbowdash.net/url/876219

    Check out this video about the development journey so far and the upcoming changes to how we do things here at YotesMark

    If you're in a rush, the short summary is that the game won't be out for another 12-16 months, the merch store is closing in October so if you want extra shirts better grab 'em now, the physical Kickstarter rewards will start going out in October (excluding all the stuff that won't come 'til release), and we have far reaching plans to make Battle Gem Ponies a full-fledged series when this is all said and done.

    We're looking forward to all the updates to come over the next year and are eternally grateful for every backer's help in making it possible. http://rainbowdash.net/url/876220

  16. The Battle Gem Ponies Combat Demo

    ​Our first public upload in 3 or 4 years after starting this entire project over after tragically losing every project file for the 2017 build. Since then this game has gone from a solo-indie project to a team-powered labor of love and it's looking all the better for it!

    Go ahead and give it a try! http://rainbowdash.net/url/835730 http://rainbowdash.net/url/875927

  28. @nerthos For me, programming is a means to an end. If I could get the same work done with just menus, drag&drop, and sliders, I'd prefer it. My favorite things about Unity are the plugins and editor.

  29. Some pretty cool prizes were given away at my college's BYOC this year. I won a Logitech gaming headset from the raffle. Never had non-earbuds before. This could be cool. http://rainbowdash.net/url/837821

  30. @nerthos I know a lot of electronics majors who have certainly shortened their lifespans with all the work professors stack on.
