Man I gotta check these games out maybe on Youtube.
Chances are those old games are abandonware if you want to try them yourselves. Never understood whether that’s
legal though… but predictably enough, they’re also available on Good Old Games
for the lower price you’d expect from games old enough to drive.
Of course, it’s still a good idea to check a let’s play to make sure you don’t buy something you’ll dislike.
If MLP came out in the 90s and early 2000s, when point and click games were more relevant, there probably would have been a fangame or actually even official game like that.
Other games were popular in the 2010s, and only a tiny niche even played of those games at that time. After all those games can be a bit “boring” to many compared to action games.
Bronies have been ridiculously productive, but I don’t think there’d have been fangames if Friendship is Magic came out one or two decades earlier. I don’t recall any fangame (other than mods) in the 2000s and the 90s, well, official video games were in their infancy, so fangames, yeah.
Might have been licensed games though. Kim Possible, Teen Titans, Avatar: The Last Airbender got video games, on the TV channel’s site if nothing else. Hell, even freaking NEOPETS got an adventure game on PS2, and that was a browser game.
Apparently Hasbro doesn’t see any future in MLP video games. Plenty of Transformers games, but MLP? Apparently a virtual pet one in 1998 and that one mobile game. Yeah. I don’t know why. Unicorn Tails is the closest ‘pony’ game I found.
Sigh. I’m the guy who thinks the Spongebob Movie PC game was cooler than the platformer.
I think the fangame Remains is the better version of Fallout: Equestria. Beat that.
I like the first Dune video game’s storyline better than the actual one, too…
