My Little Pony: Cavalry Commander Announced

Post by Surtur » Tue Apr 01, 2014 10:09 am

We are pleased to announce that the Slitherine Group has gained the exclusive rights to the critically-acclaimed ‘My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’ license and that we are currently working on a series of games under the My Little Pony Franchise. The game will be available on PC, Mac, iOS and Android.

Armed with this powerful license, we are currently working hard to bring you the first game in an exciting new series. In My Little Pony: Cavalry Commander, the player will have to manage the Pony armies both on a strategic and tactical level for the ultimate My Little Pony experience!

“Signing the My Little Pony franchise was the next logical step in our overall strategy.” Said JD McNeil, Chairman of the Slitherine Group. “We are always looking for new opportunities to expand the wargaming community and reach new markets. With My Little Pony, we can do just that!”

In MLP:CC, the Golden Valley of Dreams has been attacked by the legions of the Unicornfederacy (Confederacy of Black Unicorns). In response, the Ponies quickly suspend their playtime and organize the Free Pony Militia. While the Ponies have the will and determination to defend their valley, they lack the military organization and technology to effectively challenge the Unicornfederacy. And that is where YOU come in.

As the player, you will be put in command of the Free Pony Militia and you will have to organize your Ponies into an effective fighting force and command them in the many battles against the Unicornfederacy. At the same time you will be in charge of modernizing the cavalry force. Starting with the unarmed ponies, you will have to fund technologies to unlock armoured cavalry units, or ‘Heavy Ponies’ (see pic). Will you be able to command the determined Ponies and save the Golden Valley of Dreams?

Features:

- Immerse yourself in the world of My Little Pony with the epic story-driven campaign
- Learn the game with the help of four comprehensive tutorials
- Improve your tactics in over 20 scenarios
- Command the Pony nation on a strategic level, manage the economy and prioritize research
- Fight tactical battles against the hordes of unicorns, use the terrain to your advantage and target them with experimental weaponry to clear the battlefield of the Unicornfederate invaders!
- Meet all your favourite Pony characters and help them save their world
- Find new Bronies in the online multiplayer lobby

My Little Pony: Cavalry Commander is currently under development and will be presented at Home of Wargamers. The game is planned for release this fall.

What, no mention at all of the Pegasi airborn corps you doubtlessly will also have at your disposal or are you saving that for an expansion?

Don't worry BNC, it will appeal to a different demographic than your WW1 mod.

This crossover will hopefully introduce children, and especially girls, to the delights of wargaming :lol: I hope you are considering a Flying Pig Brigade as one of the units in the game :!:

This had better not just be an April Fools joke! (I'm quite convinced that it is)

This is epic. Teach the kiddies war gaming at an early age to get them hooked. This will be the Pokémon of a new generation! Don't forget the iPad edition ... and Steam! Please sign me up as a Beta Tester. :lol:

I'll say this again - I really think it's a hoax.

Probably suitable backup. That and that it is no-where but in announcements. It is nowhere else in any forums!
