vinyl-scratch1 asked: I know that you have made it possible to play it on android devices, but is it possible that you can make it for apple products? I would like to play it on my ipad.

It’s not possible. The Ren’Py engine does not run on iOS.

Anonymous asked: Tai seems a little out of character. Is there a reason?

If you go back and watch the very first episode again, you might be surprised at how much she’s changed. Combine that pre-Ponyville demeanor with a childhood friend who you don’t mind teasing and you’ve got Tai at the very beginning of Starswirl.

Hey, everyone. Wavedash here.

It’s that time again where we show you other projects that us Zap Apple developers are doing on the side. Today, we’re proud to show off our paranormal short story "pretty" for the first time.

In a small town, mysterious disappearances have given rise to numerous rumors of unexplained creatures prowling the streets. You are a normal high school senior with a periphery interest in the supernatural. You wouldn’t call it unhealthy or anything. It’s not like you spend your free time on ghost sighting blogs or anything like that (at least not every day). Even so, when a cute classmate asks for your help, you can’t help but say yes.

This game was conceptualized and created in just over two weeks by a few of us who’ve worked on Starswirl as well as some new faces.

Why two weeks?

Some of you may be familiar with NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, where writers motivate themselves to finish an entire novel during the month of November. There is a similar event for the visual novel world called NaNoRenO which takes place in March. We remembered that it was happening and got around to starting it halfway through.

So this is the 1.0 Beta version that we’re releasing straight out of development. No testing. Everything should be fine, but there’s a few things we didn’t get around to doing due to the time limit. We’ll probably go back and update it later if we get some feedback. Let us know what you think!

Edit: If you’re got anything to say about the game, make sure you hit us up on one of our accounts. We won’t be responding to asks about pretty on happenings since it’s not Starswirl related.
