Please keep all comments about the video to yourselves for respect of those patiently waiting to play the complete game. Music by Belgerum.

It's been three long years since this project started. I had no idea how long it would take to make this. I thought it would take a year, maybe two. But school and life took my time away and I resort to a couple hours a day...

Still, I work on, knowing that I have fans and friends alike that are looking closely at what I do, eager to see their contribution come to fruition.

KitsuneRisu, God bless him. If it weren't for his genius storytelling, the game would not have evolved to such a tremendous level it is now. I owe him so much and I wish that he is able to recover the shocking death of his mother. I made a promise to not let his work go to waste and credit him fully for his amazing story.

Belgerum, what an amazing composer, his melodies are like ear candy to me and he sets the mood perfectly for the game's many emotional moments. I could not make the musical puzzles in this game if it weren't for him. I owe him so much for his selfless compositions and endless beta testing. When he spots a lot of my silly errors in a wall of text, he isn't being critical. He has pride in this game as much as I do.

And you guys, oh, YOU guys. From derpibooru, youtube, even 4chan and 8chan, all of you people who have been patient with me all these years, you have inspired me to keep going. I cannot thank you all enough for the love and support that you have given me. I can't help but share all I do because I want to improve my game development skills and deliver fun games that, hopefully, you will all enjoy. 

I owe everyone who has helped me a heartfelt thanks. You have kept my spirit and the drive to improve myself alive. I hope that I will release this soon and I hope that you will enjoy it, with all my blood, sweat, and tears in it. It may be a pony fangame, but I still hope it will be the first stepping stone to a better ending in my life.

Thank you. God bless you all

Wow, it's beautiful.
A few day ago I remembered this game and decided to see if it was still being made, and I'm really happy I did, this game is one of the only horror game I've played and the only one I really liked, the ambiance and the point & click gameplay is awesome.

I may have said that I don't like horror games, or point and click games; but after playing the 2.0 demo, I have to say you sold me on this game and eagerly await its completion!

The name in itself is a spoiler, so I'll call it SS.

That windy mane animation with that music...so hypnotic.

Anyways, it really is amazing how you've been doing this for three whole years. Keep being amazing!

I don't suppose we'll get another demo this Halloween?

But really, this game is one of the coolest and highest quality fangames I've ever seen, even if I've just played the demo from last year. I'd love to contribute, if you have anything left to do. At the very least, I could go on a typo hunt. I'm pretty good at those.

Thanks! Yeah, unfortunately, this game is so close to completion that a demo before a full release would only decrease the replay value of the game when it comes out.

Alright. That just means it's almost ready >:D

But do keep me in mind if you'd like a hand. I'd love to help out, in any way. Though you probably don't at this point. Well, no point in not offering.

Sorry, but I'm so close to completing it that I plan to release a full version, soon. Therefore, I find it redundant to release a demo now.

There are few truly good fangames out there, and most of those are incomplete and/or have been abandoned halfway. The fact you kept pushing through makes you a truly great game developer, so I sincerely congratulate you. Clap
Didn't watch the video, as I do want the full experience of the game you put so much work into, no spoilers for me.  ;) (Wink)

On that note, can't wait to see how we get to beat or at least "defang" Snake Eyes...

Good, I know you told everyone that he couldn't be defeated in the current version, but damn, his smug attitude pissed me off.

Curiosity got the better of me and I watched the animation. Don't really get it now, all I can do is guess, but I guess everything will be clear once I play the game I look forward to so much...

I accept the thanks but I think its all of us who should really be thanking you for making this game. It is probably the game I am waiting to play the most (E3 can suck it).
It even stars my OTP (I know they are only friends in the game...BUT LET ME HAVE MY DREAMS)
you say you hope it helps to develop your skills but you are already crafting gold from rock like an alchemist.

So thank you, thank Belgrum and thank KitsuneRisu for making something this amazing.

May all your wishes come true

I don't have a sappy speech prepared, but thanks for the sentiments, and of course, for this game!  I think I'll abstain from the spoilers this time, though. ^^

God bless you, too!

I don't care how long it takes for this to be finished. Honestly, when I saw the improvements and changes from the first demo to the second demo I really began to see the amount of time, effort, and love put into this project. Its something that I've admired about it, and as such, I'll wait ever patiently for the day this is released. May life grant you luck and good fortune wherever you may go.

I hope that everything keeps smiling on you for doing a real whammy of a product. One that above and beyond the call that so many try for, and you can smile and say every step of the way "I did that." and know you did make a great effort.

That's really beautiful. I'll need to keep that in mind in the future, because I'm often embarrassed of previous works.

Look up at the work, the real hours poured into what you have created. And that is something you can be happy for. You have created, its been figurative blood, sweat, and tears to do the work you have (at a guess.). But you've created something that takes work, and look up at this being a chance to smile so close to the goal line. Just a little more to go, and you can rest this real marathon race. So when you make it, you can look to this idea, taken shape, forged into something you can be proud of and be happy for the engineering. No one else has remotely tried anything this grand.

At least, not many have tried to finish a game in such a scale in the pony fandom. I guess I can take pride in that, but I'm sorta worried that it will quickly come and go when it's complete. Either way, I'll still be happy for what I've done.

Don't let the what if's get at you. They love to chip away at a foundation built well.

You've learned so much making this haven't you? From spriting, to animation, even user interface and design choices. New tricks and solutions to problems before that might have had you stumbling.

These are all big things that can be applied further on what whatever you wanted to try for. 

There's milestones you've made and crossed without ever seeing the path you've tread. And those can help you see if things look rough. Still, enjoy the day or night, and may times favor you.
