Did you miss us?
It's been an entire month since we put out the call for writers, and there was a lot of incredible work submitted to us, but we've finally decided on three new team members.
Sam Rose - Motherly Scootaloo | FiMFiction
SmutAnon - FiMFiction
TypewriterError - FiMFiction
Now that the team is back into development full-swing, you can expect more updates soon.

UPDATE: DEADLINE PASSED
Do you have what it takes to write for a visual novel? Are you ready to find out exactly what you need to do to apply? Good. We're tired of waiting.
We're shaking things up a bit, so rather than looking for replacements for each writer per se, we're seeking out a more general approach. Writers with a decent grasp on several characters and their interactions are top on our list. Naturally, everyone has their preferences, and has different levels of skill writing different characters; don't feel like you shouldn't apply just because your Rarity's not adequately eloquent or your Applejack just don't feel down-to-earth, just tell us where you think your strengths lie.
Here's what you'll need:
-Your name (or handle)
-Skype contact name
-A sample of your best work attached to the email in a standard word or Google document. It can be anywhere from two pages all the way to ten, but please don't give us too much more than that. We're going to have a lot of reading to do. If it's a part of a longer story, you may give us the link to the rest on FiMFiction or another external site.
-Anything else you'd like to say
We'll be having two writing rounds, followed by voice interviews via skype. The first round, you may submit any story you've already written, or an original piece set in what you imagine the Starswirl universe to be like. Then, we'll go over your work and if it's what we're looking for, we'll give you an idea of what we'd like to see written for the next round.
Send your applications to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Writer Application" by the end of the day Friday, April 5th.
(Feel free to ask us if you have any questions.)

Hey everyone. Hope your April Fool's day wasn't too crazy.
Yes, the HAREM MODE was our little prank. Starswirl will always be story-first, and there's no such thing as ZapPoints™. If you found yourself saddened by the joke (or because it was a joke) we hope that this artwork will ease your pain. We don't often get a chance to pander to the ecchi side of this game, so this was fun.
One more thing:
Stay tuned later today for details on how to apply to write for Starswirl!

[UPDATE: YES, THIS WAS AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE]
Oh my. Are we late posting holiday art again? Not this time!
This eye candy comes with extra jellybeans in your basket. Restructuring is going well and we're pleased to announce the newest addition to our game. We now have a HAREM MODE! In addition to the usual H-centric gameplay, HAREM MODE includes the ability to dress up the girl of your choice during the story. More info to come later!
Personally, I like that last costume...
