Stroll ~ A simple game

Hello again, folks.

I bring you something I've been working on for the past couple of weeks, and that I finally finished just moments ago. It's a game with a very simple concept, and a very simple name as well: "Stroll".

The idea of this game came to me while I was watching the sky in my roof a couple of weeks ago, the day I finished my exams. I was finally calm, after all that stress... I could finally breath. So I wanted to make a game- a simple game, something just relaxing and simple.
I kept watching the sky for a long time, and then the exact idea came to my mind: Pinkie in a stroll along a big, big valley. That was it.

"It's avery bad idea for a game", I said to myself. "But still, I want to make it".
And so, I started this project, with that idea in my mind, that imaginary picture...

It may sound weird... but this game is just about exploring. You have no objectives, you can't interact with anything... you just have Pinkie, and a big 2D platformer-like valley to explore.

Can I call this an "Art Game"? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_game)

Anyway, I won't explain any further details about it, because I want you (if interested, of course) to experience the game yourself. You might like it or you might not, but still, I'm really glad I did this, and I'm very satisfied with the results... that's all that matters, isn't it? :)

Here's the download link for those interested: http://www.mediafire.com/?uca0ag94satx9u6
And thank y'all a lot for your time, everypony.

  1. It's actually very fun and relaxing, but I gave up after falling off the floating platforms one time too many. This game requires more patience than I have. It is also a little odd to hear the background music jumbled up, with the sound of the wind and birds in the caves, and so on.

  4. I enjoyed it immensely. It seems like it could be the basis for a really awesome game... I mean it seems almost metroidvanian. If there were some things that could help you explore and some interaction... I dunno. I'd hate to have you work even more, because it IS beautiful just as it is... I just feel like there's potential.

  5. Simply fantastic. You did well on the trickier jumping portions. It's hard, but not too hard, and the reward of finding various characters is excellent. It's soo cute too! Very peaceful, and one of the few pony games that really captures the show well. <3

  6. It;s really nice....very calming and having Pinkie lie down is so cute...some character interaction would make it even better IMO, but still awesome job!

  8. Found a bunch of Pinkies in an underground pool. Don't know where to be scared or relieved to know that the Pinkies from Too Many Pinkie Pies are having fun being stuck in a flooded, underground cave with no interaction with the outside world... Yeah. Definitely scared.

      @anonymous don't worry I'm pretty sure that's just a bug. It does have nice work, although I suggest using custom sprites for games.

    A good improvement will be it saves the spot where you are and maybe the night/day cycle.
